Abstract: The National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) for Iron and Steel Foundries Area Sources (40 CFR part 63, subpart ZZZZZ) apply to both new and existing iron and/or steel foundries that are an area source of hazardous air pollutants (HAP) emissions. There are different requirements for foundries based on size. Existing foundries with an annual metal melt production greater that 20,000 tons and new foundries with an annual melt capacity of 10,000 tons are classified as large foundries. Existing foundries with an annual metal melt capacity of 10,000 tons or less are VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:06 Oct 30, 2018 Jkt 247001 classified as small foundries. Research and development facilities are not covered by the rule. New facilities include those that commenced construction, modification or reconstruction after the date of proposal. In general, all NESHAP standards require initial notifications, performance tests, and periodic reports by the owners/operators of the affected facilities. They are also required to maintain 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 notifications, reports, and records are essential in determining compliance with 40 CFR part 63, subpart ZZZZZ. Form Numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: Iron and steel foundries. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 63, subpart ZZZZZ). Estimated number of respondents: 392 (total). Frequency of response: Initially, occasionally, quarterly, semiannually, and annually. Total estimated burden: 9,140 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b). Total estimated cost: $1,000,000 (rounded) (per year). No annualized capital and/or operation & maintenance costs are included. Changes in the estimates: There is an adjustment increase in the total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently approved by OMB. While the overall number of respondents has decreased from 427 to 392 since the previous ICR renewal to account for shutdown facilities, this renewal includes a burden estimate for each existing respondent to familiarize themselves with regulatory requirements each year. As a result, there is a net increase in the burden hours as compared to the previous ICR renewal. Courtney Kerwin, Director, Regulatory Support Division.

Abstract: The EPA promulgated the Air Emissions Reporting Requirements (AERR) (40 CFR part 51, subpart A) to coordinate emissions inventory reporting requirements with existing requirements of the Clean Air Act and 1990 Amendments. Under this reporting, 55 state and territorial air quality agencies, including the District of Columbia, as well as an estimated 20 local air quality agencies, must submit emissions data every 3 years for all point, non-point, on-road mobile, and non-road mobile sources of volatile organic compounds, oxides of nitrogen, carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide, particulate matter less than or equal to 10 micrometers in diameter, particulate matter less than or equal to 2.5 micrometers in diameter, ammonia, and lead. In addition, the air quality agencies must submit annually emission data for point sources with the potential to emit at greater than specified levels of those pollutants. The data supplied to the emission reporting requirement is needed so that the EPA can compile and make available a national inventory of air pollutant emissions. A comprehensive inventory updated at regular intervals is essential to allow the EPA to fulfill its mandate to monitor and plan for the attainment and maintenance of the national ambient air quality standards established for criteria pollutants. Form Numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: State, territorial and local government air quality managements programs. Tribal governments are not affected unless they have sought and obtained treatment as state status under the Tribal Authority Rule and on that basis, are authorized to implement and enforce the AERR rule. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory under 23 U.S.C. 101; 42 U.S.C 7401–7671q, and the authority of the AERR. Estimated number of respondents: 75 (total). VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:06 Oct 30, 2018 Jkt 247001 Frequency of response: Annual. Total estimated burden: 47,248 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.03(b). Total estimated cost: $4,513,390 (per year), includes $225,000 annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in the Estimates: Change in hours/cost is due to the reduction of the total estimated respondents from the ICR currently approved by OMB.

Abstract: All contractors who have completed an EPA cost-reimbursement type contract will be required to submit EPA Form 1900–10. EPA Form 1900–10 summarizes all costs incurred in performance of the contract and sets forth the final indirect rates. This form is reviewed by the contracting officer to determine the final costs reimbursable to the contractor. The Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) 52.216–7 states that the Government will pay only the costs determined to be allowable by the contracting officer in accordance with FAR Subpart 31.2. Furthermore, FAR 52.216–7 states that indirect cost rates shall be established for each fiscal year at the close of a contractor’s fiscal year. EPA Form 1900–10 summarizes this information for the entire contract period and provides a basis for cost review by contracting, finance, and audit personnel. In addition, FAR 4.804–5 mandates that the office administering the contract shall ensure that the costs and indirect cost rates are settled. Form Numbers: EPA Form 1900–10.
