    Title: NESHAP for Flexible Polyurethane Foam Fabrication (Renewal).
    ICR Numbers: EPA ICR Number 2027.05, OMB Control Number 2060-0516.
    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 National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air 
Pollutants for Flexible Polyurethane Foam Fabrication are subject to 
the General Provisions (40 CFR part 63, subpart A) and any changes, or 
additions to the Provisions (40 CFR part 63, subpart MMMMM). 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 MMMMM, 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 90 
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 flexible 
polyurethane foam fabrication.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 14.
    Frequency of Response: Initially, occasionally, annually, and 
semiannually.
    Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 15,601.
    Estimated Total Annual Cost: $1,497,553, which includes $1,494,882 
in labor costs, $997 in capital/startup costs, and $1,674 in operation 
and maintenance (O&M) costs.
    Changes in the Estimates: There is an increase in burden hours for 
both the respondents and the Agency in this ICR compared to the 
previous ICR. This is because there are, on average, 3 more existing 
units subject to this standard due to a growth in the respondent 
universe during the past three years.
    There is also an increase in the total labor and Agency costs as 
currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved Burdens. The 
change in cost estimates reflects an increase in respondent numbers, as 
described above, and updated labors rates available from the Bureau of 
Labor Statistics.
