    Title: NESHAP for Area Sources: Asphalt Processing and Asphalt 
Roofing Manufacturing (Renewal).
    ICR Numbers: EPA ICR Number 2352.03, OMB Control Number 2060-0634.
    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 NESHAP at 40 CFR part 63, subpart A, and any changes, 
or additions to the Provisions specified at 40 CFR part 63, subpart 
AAAAAAA.
    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 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: Entities potentially affected by 
this action are the owners or operators of asphalt processing and 
roofing manufacturing facilities.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 75.
    Frequency of Response: Semiannually and annually.
    Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 2,846.
    Estimated Total Annual Cost: $276,724, which includes $275,599 in 
labor costs, no capital/startup costs, and $1,125 in operation and 
maintenance (O&M) costs.
    Changes in the Estimates: There is an adjustment increase in labor 
costs for the respondents from the most recently approved ICR. This 
increase is not due to any program changes. The adjustment increase 
reflects a change in labor rates from the Bureau of Labor Statistics as 
this ICR uses updated labor rates for calculating all burden costs.
    However, there is an overall decrease in labor hours, capital/
startup costs, O&M costs, and Agency costs as currently identified in 
the OMB Inventory of Approved Burdens. The decrease in burden and cost 
estimates occurred because the standards have been in effect for more 
than three years and the requirements are different during initial 
compliance as compared to on-going compliance. The previous ICR 
reflected those burdens and costs associated with the initial 
activities for subject facilities. This includes purchasing monitoring 
equipment, conducting performance tests and establishing recordkeeping 
systems. This ICR, by and large, reflects the on-going burden and costs 
for existing facilities. Activities for existing source include 
continuous monitoring of pollutants and the submission of semiannual 
reports.
