    Title: NESHAP for Aluminum, Copper and Other Non-ferrous Metals 
Foundries
    ICR Numbers: EPA ICR Number 2332.03, OMB Control Number 2060-0630
    ICR Status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on October 31, 2012. 
Under OMB regulations, the Agency may continue to either 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 
ZZZZZZ.
    Owners or operators of the affected facilities must submit a one-
time-only report of any physical or operational changes, initial 
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 are also required semiannually.
    Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping 
burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 164 
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: Aluminum, copper and other non-
ferrous metal foundries.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 318.
    Frequency of Response: Initially and occasionally.
    Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 10,482.
    Estimated Total Annual Cost: $1,015,005, which includes $1,015,005 
in labor costs, and neither capital/startup costs nor operating and 
maintenance costs.
    Changes in the Estimates: There is an adjustment increase in the 
total estimated burden hours and cost for the respondents as currently 
identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved Burdens. This is not due to 
any program changes. The increase in burden hours and costs is due the 
fact that the rule is now fully implemented and all effected entities 
are required to comply with the rule on an annual basis. Furthermore, 
this ICR uses adjustment labor rates which also increase the burden 
costs for all labor categories.
    There is an adjustment decrease in the total burden hours and cost 
for the Agency as currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved 
Burdens. The burden hours and costs have decreased since the last ICR 
because the Agency is no longer expected to conduct activities 
associated with initial compliance. This ICR uses updated labor rates 
in estimating the burden costs for all labor categories.
