Abstract: The National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) for Plating and Polishing Area Sources (40 CFR part 63, subpart WWWWWW) apply to both existing and new plating and polishing facilities that are an area source of hazardous air pollutant (HAP) emissions and that use one or more of the following metal HAP: Cadmium, chromium, lead manganese, or nickel (hereafter referred to as the plating and polishing metal HAP). A plating and polishing facility is a plant site that is engaged in any of the following processes: Non-chromium electroplating; electroless or nonelectrolytic plating; other nonelectrolytic metal coating processes such as chromate conversion coating, nickel acetate sealing, sodium DATES: Jkt 247001 PO 00000 Frm 00030 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 9990 dichromate sealing, and manganese phosphate coating, and thermal spraying; dry mechanical polishing of finished metals and formed products after plating or thermal spraying; electroforming; and electro-polishing. 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 WWWWWW. Form Numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: Plating and polishing area source facilities. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 63, subpart WWWWWW). Estimated number of respondents: 2,900 (total). Frequency of response: Initially and annually. Total estimated burden: 67,700 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b). Total estimated cost: $7,410,000 (per year), which includes no annualized capital/startup or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in the estimates: There is an increase in the total estimated burden and number of responses from the mostrecently approved ICR due to several adjustments. First, burden hours were added to allow each facility to refamiliarize themselves with the regulatory requirements each year. Second, the number of sources that complete but do not submit annual compliance certifications was left out of the response count in the previous renewal and this has been corrected. There is a decrease in the annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs since the previous renewal due to an adjustment. There are no ongoing monitoring requirements in the rule and no new sources are expected to incur capital/startup costs. Therefore, the capital/startup costs were reduced to zero since those costs have already been incurred when the existing sources became subject to the rule.

chromium electroplating; electroless or non-electrolytic plating; other 
non-electrolytic metal coating processes such as chromate conversion 
coating, nickel acetate sealing, sodium dichromate sealing, and 
manganese phosphate coating, and thermal spraying; dry mechanical 
polishing of finished metals and formed products after plating or 
thermal spraying; electroforming; and electro-polishing. 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
