    Title: NSPS for Coal Preparation and Processing Plants (Renewal).
    ICR Numbers: EPA ICR Number 1062.13, OMB Control Number 2060-0122.
    ICR Status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on February 28, 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 Y. 
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 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: Coal preparation and processing 
plants.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 1,037.
    Frequency of Response: Initially, semiannual, and annually.
    Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 41,998.
    Estimated Total Annual Cost: $4,414,741, which includes $4,066,701 
in labor costs, $282,400 in capital/startup costs, and $65,640 in 
operation and maintenance (O&M) costs.
    Changes in the Estimates: There is an adjustment increase in the 
total estimated burden as currently identified in the OMB Inventory of 
Approved Burdens. This increase is not due to any program changes. The 
change in the burden and cost estimates occurred because the most 
recent ICR reflects burdens associated with the final rule amendment, 
which only applies to sources constructed, reconstructed, or modified 
on or after April 28, 2008 (i.e. new sources). This ICR estimates the 
burdens for both existing sources subject to the standard and new 
sources covered under the rule amendment. Additionally, this ICR uses 
updated labor rates to calculate all burden costs. This method resulted 
in an increase of labor hours and costs for both the respondents and 
the Agency.
    There is an adjustment decrease in capital/startup costs in this 
ICR as compared to the previous ICR. The decrease occurred because the 
previous ICR assumes all new sources were constructed during Year 1 of 
the three-year period, and that all capital/startup costs for new 
sources were incurred that year. This ICR assumes a constant growth 
rate in the respondent universe over the three-year period and 
calculates the average capital/startup costs per year.
    Additionally, there is an increase in the total O&M costs. The 
increase is due to a growth in the respondent universe subject to on-
going O&M costs since the last ICR.
