    Title: NSPS for Stationary Combustion Turbines (Renewal).
    ICR Numbers: EPA ICR Number 2177.05, OMB Control Number 2060-0582.
    ICR Status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on January 31, 2013. 
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 NSPS at 40 CFR part 60, subpart A and any changes, or 
additions to the Provisions specified at 40 CFR part 60, subpart KKKK.
    Owners or operators of the affected facilities must make an initial 
notification report, performance tests, periodic reports, and 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 38 
hours per

[[Page 94]]

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 and operators of stationary 
combustion turbines.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 448.
    Frequency of Response: Semiannually.
    Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 44,394.
    Estimated Total Annual Cost: $4,298,616, which includes $4,298,616 
in labor costs, no capital/startup costs, and no operation and 
maintenance (O&M) costs.
    Changes in the Estimates: There is an increase in burden hours and 
costs for the respondents and the Agency from the most recently 
approved ICR. It should be noted that the increase is not due to any 
program changes. The increase is due to an adjustment in labor rates 
and in the number of new or modified sources. This ICR uses updated 
labor rates from the Bureau of Labor Statistics to calculate burden 
costs. Additionally, this ICR assumes the respondent universe subject 
to the regulation has continued to grow at a constant rate after the 
rule has been fully implemented.
