Abstract: The National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) for Perchloroethylene Dry Cleaning Facilities (40 CFR part 63, subpart M) were proposed on December 9, 1991; promulgated on September 22, 1993; and most-recently amended on November 19, 2020. These regulations apply to both existing and new drycleaning facilities that use perchloroethylene (PCE). New facilities include those that either commenced construction or reconstruction after the date of proposal. This information is being collected to assure compliance with 40 CFR part 63, subpart M. Form Numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: Dry cleaning facilities that use perchloroethylene (PCE). Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR 63, subpart M). Estimated number of respondents: 28,020 (total). Frequency of response: Annual. Total estimated burden: 1,590,343 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b). Total estimated cost: $197,000,000 (per year), which includes $948,000 in annualized capital/startup and/or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is no change in burden from the mostrecently approved ICR as currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved Burdens. This is due to two considerations: (1) the regulations have not changed over the past three years and are not anticipated to change over the next three years; and (2) the growth rate for this industry is very low or nonexistent, so there is no significant change in the overall burden. Since there are no changes in the regulatory requirements and there is no significant industry growth, there are also no changes in the capital/startup or operation and maintenance (O&M) costs.

These regulations apply to each individual batch vapor, in-line vapor, in-line cold, and batch cold solvent cleaning machine that uses any solvent containing methylene chloride; perchloroethylene; 1,1,1trichloroethane; trichloroethylene; carbon tetrachloride; chloroform; or any combination of these halogenated HAP solvents, in a total concentration greater than 5 percent by weight, as a cleaning and/or drying agent. New facilities include those that commenced either construction or reconstruction on or after December 2, 1994. This information is being collected to assure compliance with 40 CFR part 63, subpart T. 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.

Total estimated cost: $4,420,000 (per year), which includes $660,000 in annualized capital/startup and/or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is no change in the labor hours in this ICR compared to the previous ICR. This is due to two considerations: (1) the regulations have not changed over the past three years and are not anticipated to change over the next three years; and (2) the growth rate for the industry is either very low, negative, or nonexistent, so there is no significant change in the overall burden.
