    Title: NESHAP for Source Categories: Generic Maximum Achievable 
Control Technology Standards (Renewal).
    ICR Numbers: EPA ICR Number 1871.06, OMB Control Number 2060-0420.
    ICR Status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on June 30, 2012. Under 
OMB regulations, the Agency may continue to conduct or sponsor the 
collection of information while this submission is pending at OMB.
    Abstract: The affected entities are subject to the General 
Provisions of the NESHAP at 40 CFR part 63, subpart A, and any changes, 
or additions to the Provisions specified at 40 CFR part 63, subpart YY. 
Owners or operators of the affected facilities must submit initial 
notification, performance tests, and periodic reports and results. 
Owners or operators 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. Reports, at a minimum, are required 
semiannually.
    These regulations apply to existing facilities and new facilities 
of the following four categories: Polycarbonates (PC) Production, 
Acrylic and Modacrylic Fibers (AMF) Production, Acetal Resins (AR) 
Production, and Hydrogen Fluoride (HF) Production. New facilities 
include those that commenced construction or reconstruction after the 
date of proposal. This information is being collected to assure 
compliance with 40 CFR part 63, subpart YY.
    All reports are sent to the delegated state or local authority. In 
the event that there is no such delegated authority, the reports are 
sent directly to the EPA regional office. This information is being 
collected to assure compliance with 40 CFR part 63, subpart YY, as 
authorized in section 112 and 114(a) of the Clean Air Act. The required 
information consists of emissions data and other information that has 
been determined to be private.
    An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required 
to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a 
currently valid OMB Control Number. The OMB Control Number for EPA's 
regulations are listed in 40 CFR part 9 and 48 CFR chapter 15, and are 
identified on the form and/or instrument, if applicable.
    Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping 
burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 124 
hours per response. ``Burden'' means the total time, effort, or 
financial resources expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, 
or disclose or provide information to or for a Federal agency. This 
includes the time needed to review instructions; develop, acquire, 
install, and utilize technology and systems for the purposes of 
collecting, validating, and verifying information, processing and 
maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information; 
adjust the existing ways to comply with any previously applicable 
instructions and requirements which have subsequently changed; train 
personnel to be able to respond to a collection of information; search 
data sources; complete and review the collection of information; and 
transmit or otherwise disclose the information.
    Respondents/Affected Entities: Owners or operators of source 
categories: Generic maximum achievable control technology standards for 
acetal resin; acrylic and modacrylic fiber; hydrogen fluoride and 
polycarbonate production.

[[Page 28381]]

    Estimated Number of Respondents: 10.
    Frequency of Response: Initially, occasionally, and semiannually.
    Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 3,718.
    Estimated Total Annual Cost: $554,916, which includes $424,571 in 
labor costs, no capital/startup costs, and $130,345 in operation and 
maintenance (O&M) costs.
    Changes in the Estimates: There is an increase in costs in the most 
recently approved ICR. The increase in burden cost is due to 
adjustments in labor rates. This ICR uses updated labor rates from the 
Bureau of Labor Statistics to calculate burden costs.
    There is a decrease of 286 labor hours for the respondents related 
to typographical error in the previous ICR. There is no change in the 
estimation methodology for labor hours to the respondents. 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 respondents is very low, negative, 
or non-existent.
    There is an increase in O&M costs to the respondents as compared to 
the previous ICR. The O&M costs were updated based on comments received 
during consultation with the affected entities, and the increase 
reflects the costs associated with the maintenance and calibration of 
emission controls and monitors.
