    Title: NESHAP for Miscellaneous Metal Parts and Products (Renewal).
    ICR Numbers: EPA ICR Number 2056.04, OMB Control Number 2060-0486.
    ICR Status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on July 31, 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 
MMMM.
    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.
    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 MMMM, as 
authorized in section 112 and 114(a) of the Clean Air Act. The required 
information consists of emissions data and other information that have 
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 Numbers for the EPA 
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 226 
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 
either transmit or otherwise disclose the information.
    Respondents/Affected Entities: Owners or operators of miscellaneous 
metal parts and products.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 4,992.
    Frequency of Response: Initially, occasionally, and semiannually.
    Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 2,254,948.
    Estimated Total Annual Cost: $217,117,118, which includes 
$216,067,118 in labor costs, no capital/startup costs, and $1,050,000 
in operation and maintenance (O&M) costs.
    Changes in the Estimates: There is an adjustment decrease in the 
labor hours for the respondent as compared to the

[[Page 30279]]

most recently approved ICR. This decrease is not due to any program 
changes. The decrease reflects a correction in the ``person-hours per 
occurrence'' estimate for magnet wire facilities in Table 1 based on 
comments received from industry consultation. The per-person burden 
hour estimate for line items ``5.1 Gather information and monitor'' and 
``6.1 Process/compile and review'' in the previous ICR were incorrectly 
based on burden estimates for the entire industry sector rather than a 
single magnet wire facility, and therefore were inflated by a factor of 
ten.
    There is an increase in the total O&M costs in this ICR as compared 
to the previous ICR. This change reflects an update in the respondent 
universe for the magnet wire industry. Based on comments received from 
consultation, EPA updated the number of magnet wire facilities from 10 
to 11 in order to reflect more accurately the potential respondent 
universe.
    In addition, there is an increase in burden costs to both the 
respondent and the Agency due to an adjustment in labor rates. This ICR 
uses the most recent labor rates from the U.S. Bureau of Labor 
Statistics in calculating the labor costs.
