    ICR Numbers: EPA ICR Number 1847.06, OMB Control Number 2060-0390.
    ICR Status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on February 28, 2013. 
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 NSPS at 40 CFR part 60, subpart A and any changes, or 
additions to the Provisions specified at 40 CFR part 60, subpart Cb.
    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 1,725 
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: Large municipal waste combustors.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 81.
    Frequency of Response: Annually and semiannually.
    Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 394,965.
    Estimated Total Annual Cost: $52,760,002, which includes 
$51,204,802 in labor costs, no capital/startup costs, and $1,555,200 in 
operation and maintenance (O&M) costs.
    Changes in the Estimates: There is a small decrease in labor hours 
for privately-owned respondents and an increase in labor hours for 
publicly-owned respondents from the most recent ICR. The changes in 
labor hours are due to rounding in the number of respondents that are 
subject to semi-annual excess emissions reporting. This ICR uses 
rounded value for the number of respondents in calculating labor hours 
and costs. Additionally, there is an increase of one labor hour for the 
Agency due to correction of rounding error from the previous ICR.
    There is also an increase in labor costs for both the respondents 
and the Agency. This increase is not due to any program changes. The 
change in cost estimates reflects updated labors rates available from 
the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
