SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Supporting documents which explain in detail the information that the EPA will be collecting are available in the public docket for this ICR. The docket can be viewed online at https:// www.regulations.gov or in person at the EPA Docket Center, EPA WJC West Building, Room 3334, 1301 Constitution Ave. NW, Washington, DC. The telephone number for the Docket Center is 202–566–1744. For additional information about the EPA’s public docket, visit http://www.epa.gov/ dockets. Pursuant to section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the PRA, the EPA is soliciting comments and information to enable it to: (i) Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (ii) evaluate the accuracy of the Agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (iii) enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (iv) minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses. The EPA will consider the comments received and amend the ICR as appropriate. The final ICR package will then be submitted to OMB for review and approval. At that time, the EPA will issue another Federal Register notice to announce the submission of the ICR to OMB and the opportunity to submit additional comments to OMB. Abstract: For the Asbestos NESHAP ICR, owners and operators of affected facilities are required to comply with reporting and recordkeeping requirements for the general provisions of 40 CFR part 61, subpart M, as well as the applicable specific standards. VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:21 Sep 25, 2018 Jkt 244001 This includes submitting initial notifications, performance tests, and periodic reports and results, maintaining records of the occurrence and duration of any startup, shutdown, or malfunction in the operation of an affected facility, or any period during which the monitoring system is inoperative. These reports are used by the EPA to determine compliance with the standard. Form Numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: Owners/operators of demolition and renovation activities; asbestos waste disposal; asbestos milling, manufacturing, and fabricating facilities; use of asbestos on roadways; asbestos waste converting facilities; and use of asbestos insulation and sprayed-on materials. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 61, subpart M). Estimated number of respondents: 9,575 (total). Frequency of response: Initially, occasionally, quarterly, and semiannually. Total estimated burden: 261,000 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.03(b). Total estimated cost: $26,300,000, includes no annualized capital or operation and maintenance costs. Changes in Estimates: The burden in this document includes changes in reporting and recordkeeping resulting from a recent action on an alternative work practice and a planned change to allow electronic reporting for notifications. There is a decrease of 30,778 hours in the total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently approved by OMB. This decrease is due to the movement from notifications submitted only through the U.S. mail to electronic notifications. Dated: August 16, 2018.
