Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 229 / Wednesday, November 27, 2019 / Notices manufacturer to conduct specific toxicity and effectiveness tests and submit the corresponding technical product data along with other detailed information to the EPA Office of Emergency Management, Office of Land and Emergency Management. For example, a dispersant must exceed the 50 percent (±5 percent) efficacy threshold in order to be listed on the Schedule. EPA places oil spill mitigating agents on the Schedule if all the required data are submitted and the product satisfies all requirements and meets or exceeds testing thresholds. The Schedule is available to FOSCs, RRTs, and Area Committees for selecting the most appropriate products to use in various spill scenarios. As of June 2016, 117 products were listed on the Schedule. In the previous ICR renewal, EPA estimated that 11 products per year would be submitted to EPA for listing on the Schedule during the renewal period. Over the three-year period covered by the current ICR (2016 through 2019), EPA estimated that a total of 11 products would be listed annually. Additionally, EPA estimated that approximately 10 manufacturers would submit information to obtain sorbent certifications. The annual public reporting burden was estimated to be 315 hours. The total annual cost (including labor and non-labor) to manufacturers under Subpart J was estimated to be $89,590. At 40 CFR 300.920(c), respondents may claim certain information in the technical product data submissions as confidential business information. EPA will handle such claims pursuant to the provisions in 40 CFR part 2, subpart B. Such information must be submitted separately from non-confidential information, clearly identified, and clearly marked ‘‘Confidential Business Information.’’ If the applicant fails to make such a claim at the time of submittal, EPA may make the information available to the public without further notice. Forms: None. Respondents/affected entities: Respondents include, but are not limited to, manufacturers of bioremediation agents, dispersants, surface collecting agents, surface washing agents, miscellaneous oil spill control agents, and other chemical agents and biological additives used as countermeasures against oil spills. Affected private industries can be expected to fall within the following industrial classifications: • Manufacturers of industrial inorganic chemicals (SIC 281/NAICS 325188), VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:21 Nov 26, 2019 Jkt 250001 • Manufacturers of industrial organic chemicals (SIC 286/NAICS 325199), and • Manufacturers of miscellaneous chemical products (SIC 289/NAICS 325988). Respondent’s obligation to respond: A manufacturer who wants their product to be listed on the Schedule for use as oil spill mitigating agent in an emergency response to an oil spill must submit certain mandatory product testing and information to EPA for review for the product to be listed on the Schedule. (The Schedule is required by section 311(d)(2)(G) of the Clean Water Act (CWA), as amended by the Oil Pollution Act of 1990). Estimated number of respondents: The previous ICR renewal estimated 21 respondents per year, including 10 sorbent product manufacturers. There were 99 manufacturers and 117 products (27 bioremediation agents, 18 dispersants, 16 miscellaneous oil spill control agents, 54 surface washing agents, and 2 surface collecting agents) listed on the Schedule as of June 2016. EPA estimates that manufacturers will apply to list 11 products on the Schedule each year, including 2 bioremediation agents, 3 dispersants, 2 miscellaneous oil spill control agents, 1 surface collecting agent, and 3 surface washing agents during this ICR renewal period. In addition, EPA estimates that 10 manufacturers will apply to list sorbent products (one per manufacturer). Over the three-year period, EPA anticipates that manufacturers will apply to list a total of 6 bioremediation agents, 9 dispersants, 6 miscellaneous oil spill control agents, 3 surface collecting agent, 9 surface washing agents and 10 sorbents on the Schedule. These figures will be updated as needed during the 60-day OMB review period. Frequency of response: Each manufacturer responds once per product submittal. Total estimated burden: 315 hours (per year). This figure will be updated as needed during the 60-day OMB review period. Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.03(b). Total estimated cost: $89,590 (per year), including $72,450 annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs. These figures will be updated with the most recent available wage rates from BLS and to account for any changes in O&M costs, burden and number of respondents. Changes in Estimates: The above burden estimates are based on the current approved ICR. In the final notice for the renewal ICR, EPA will publish revised burden estimates based on updates to respondent data and unit PO 00000 Frm 00041 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 65387 costs. The revised burden estimates may increase or decrease from the current ICR based on the number of products added to the Schedule during the past ICR renewal period, and EPA’s adjusted estimates for the number of products the Agency anticipates may be added to the Schedule during the upcoming ICR renewal period. Any change in burden will be described and explained in this section when the updated ICR Supporting Statement is completed during the 60-day OMB review period. Dated: November 18, 2019.

Abstract: The National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) for Off-Site Waste and Recovery Operations (OSWRO apply to existing facilities and new facilities with organic hazardous air pollutant (HAP) emissions that are involved in waste management and recovery operations, and that are not subject to Federal air standards under other subparts in Part 63. In addition, Subpart DD crossreferences control requirements to be applied to specific types of affected sources: Tanks level-1; containers; surface impoundments; individual drain systems; oil-water separators; organic water separators; and loading, transfer, and storage systems. New facilities include those that commenced either construction or reconstruction after the date of proposal. This information is being collected to assure compliance with 40 CFR part 63, subpart DD. In general, all NESHAP standards require initial notification reports, performance tests, and periodic reports by the owners/operators of the affected facilities. They are also required VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:21 Nov 26, 2019 Jkt 250001 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, and are required of all affected facilities subject to NESHAP. Form Numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: Facilities that are involved in waste management and recovery operations. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 63). Estimated number of respondents: 50 (total). Frequency of response: Semiannually. Total estimated burden: 47,800 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b). Total estimated cost: $6,420,000 (per year), which includes $892,000 in annualized capital/startup and/or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is an adjustment increase in the burden in this ICR compared to the previous ICR. The increase is based on an increase in the number of sources subject to the NESHAP. This also results in an increase in the operation and maintenance costs. This ICR also adjusts the capital and operation and maintenance costs for installing electronic indicators on PRDs on stationary sources per the rule amendments and final action on reconsideration (83 FR 3986, January 29, 2019).

    Abstract: The National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air 
Pollutants (NESHAP) for Off-Site Waste and Recovery Operations (OSWRO 
apply to existing facilities and new facilities with organic hazardous 
air pollutant (HAP) emissions that are involved in waste management and 
recovery operations, and that are not subject to Federal air standards 
under other subparts in Part 63. In addition, Subpart DD cross-
references control requirements to be applied to specific types of 
affected sources: Tanks level-1; containers; surface impoundments; 
individual drain systems; oil-water separators; organic water 
separators; and loading, transfer, and storage systems. New facilities 
include those that commenced either construction or reconstruction 
after the date of proposal.
    This information is being collected to assure compliance with 40 
CFR part 63, subpart DD. In general, all NESHAP standards require 
initial notification reports, 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, and are required of all affected facilities 
subject to NESHAP.
    Form Numbers: None.
    Respondents/affected entities: Facilities that are involved in 
waste management and recovery operations.
    Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 63).
    Estimated number of respondents: 50 (total).
    Frequency of response: Semiannually.
    Total estimated burden: 47,800 hours (per year). Burden is defined 
at 5 CFR 1320.3(b).
    Total estimated cost: $6,420,000 (per year), which includes 
$892,000 in annualized capital/startup and/or operation & maintenance 
costs.
    Changes in the Estimates: There is an adjustment increase in the 
burden in this ICR compared to the previous ICR. The increase is based 
on an increase in the number of sources subject to the NESHAP. This 
also results in an increase in the operation and maintenance costs. 
This ICR also adjusts the capital and operation and maintenance costs 
for installing electronic indicators on PRDs on stationary sources per 
the rule amendments and final action on reconsideration (83 FR 3986, 
January 29, 2019).
