Abstract: The National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) for Ferroalloys Production Area Sources (40 CFR part 63, subpart YYYYYY) apply to existing and new ferroalloy production facilities that are an area source of hazardous air pollutant (HAP) emissions. 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 jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES ADDRESSES: VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:26 Jul 20, 2021 Jkt 253001 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: Owners and operators of area source ferroalloys production facilities. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 63, subpart YYYYYY). Estimated number of respondents: 9 (total). Frequency of response: Initially, annually, and semiannually. Total estimated burden: 362 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b). Total estimated cost: $42,500 (per year), which includes $0 in annualized capital/startup and/or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is a small decrease in burden from the most recently approved ICR as currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved Burdens. This decrease is not due to any program changes. This ICR reflects a reduction in the number of respondents based on a review of facilities listed in the 2008 final rule docket that remain in operation. A review of these facilities revealed that one of the existing ten companies has shut down, while remaining facilities appear to continue to be in operation. The growth rate for this industry is very low or non-existent, so no new companies are expected to become subject to this NESHAP during the three-year period of this ICR. There are no changes in the capital/startup or operation and maintenance (O&M) costs. Courtney Kerwin, Director, Regulatory Support Division.

Nature and Extent of Confidentiality: The Commission is not requesting that the respondents submit confidential information to the FCC. Respondents may, however, request confidential treatment for information they believe to be confidential under 47 CFR 0.459 of the Commission’s rules. Needs and Uses: Section 251 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended, 47 U.S.C. 251, is designed to accelerate private sector development and deployment of telecommunications technologies and services by spurring competition. Section 222(e) is also designed to spur competition by prescribing requirements for the sharing of subscriber list information. These information collection requirements are designed to help implement certain provisions of sections 222(e) and 251, and to eliminate operational barriers to competition in the telecommunications services market. Specifically, these information collection requirements will be used to implement (1) local exchange carriers’ (‘‘LECs’’) obligations to provide their competitors with dialing parity and non-discriminatory access to certain services and functionalities; (2) incumbent local exchange carriers’ (‘‘ILECs’’) duty to make network information disclosures; and (3) numbering administration. In November 2017, the Commission adopted new rules concerning certain information collection requirements implemented under section 251(c)(5) of the Act, pertaining to network change disclosures. Most of the changes to those rules applied specifically to a certain subset of network change disclosures, namely notices of planned copper retirements. In addition, the changes removed a rule that prohibits incumbent LECs from engaging in useful advanced coordination with entities affected by network changes. In June 2018, the Commission revised its network change disclosure rules to (1) revise the types of network changes that trigger an incumbent LEC’s public notice obligation, and (2) extend the force majeure provisions applicable to copper retirements to all types of network changes. The changes were aimed at removing unnecessary regulatory barriers to the deployment of high-speed broadband networks. Federal Communications Commission.

Needs and Uses: The Commission seeks approval to extend the existing collection 3060–0806 (FCC Forms 470 and 471). Collection of the information on FCC Forms 470 and 471 is necessary so that the Commission and USAC have sufficient information to determine if entities are eligible for funding pursuant to the schools and libraries support mechanism, to determine if entities are complying with the Commission’s rules, and to prevent waste, fraud, and abuse. In addition, the information is necessary for the Commission to evaluate the extent to which the E-rate program is meeting the statutory objectives specified in section 254(h) of the 1996 Act, and the Commission’s performance goals established in the E-rate Modernization Order and Second E-rate Modernization Order.
