    Title: NESHAP for Semiconductor Manufacturing (Renewal).
    ICR Numbers: EPA ICR Number 2042.05, OMB Control Number 2060-0519.
    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 
BBBBB.
    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.
    Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping 
burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 19 
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: Entities potentially affected by 
this action are the owners or operators of semiconductor manufacturing 
plants.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 1.
    Frequency of Response: Initially, occasionally, and semiannually.
    Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 37.
    Estimated Total Annual Cost: $3,576, which includes $3,526 in labor 
costs, no capital/startup costs, and $50 in operation and maintenance 
(O&M) costs.
    Changes in the Estimates: There is no change in 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 they 
are not anticipated to change over the next three years; and (2) the 
growth rate for the industry is very low, negative or nonexistent, so 
there is no significant change in the overall burden.
    There is an increase in respondent and Agency costs resulting from 
labor rate increases since the last renewal. This ICR uses updated 
labor rates from the most recently available data for each of the three 
labor categories.
