    Title: NESHAP for Area Sources: Polyvinyl Chloride and Copolymer 
Production, Primary Copper Smelting, Secondary Copper Smelting, and 
Primary Nonferrous Metals--Zinc, Cadmium, and Beryllium (Renewal).
    ICR Numbers: EPA ICR Number 2240.04, OMB Control Number 2060-0596
    ICR Status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on May 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 NESHAP at 40 CFR part 63, subpart A, and any changes, 
or additions to the Provisions specified at 40 CFR part 63, subparts 
DDDDDD, EEEEEE, FFFFFF, and GGGGGG.
    Owners or operators of the affected facilities must submit an 
initial notification report, 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 required annually at 
a minimum.
    An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required 
to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a 
currently valid OMB Control Number. The OMB Control Numbers for EPA 
regulations listed in 40 CFR part 9 and 48 CFR chapter 15, are 
identified on the form and/or instrument, if applicable.
    Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping 
burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 12 
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: Owners or operators of polyvinyl 
chloride and copolymer, primary copper smelter, secondary copper 
smelter, primary nonferrous metals--zinc, cadmium, and beryllium that 
is an area source of HAP emissions.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 5.
    Frequency of Response: Initially.
    Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 46.
    Estimated Total Annual Cost: $4,454, which includes $4,454 in labor 
costs, no capital/startup costs, and no operation and maintenance (O&M) 
costs.
    Changes in the Estimates: There is no change in labor hours in this 
ICR compared to the previous ICR. This is due to two considerations: 
(1) The regulations have not changed over the past three years and are 
not anticipated to change over the next three years; and (2) the growth 
rate for the industry is very low, negative or non-existent, so there 
is no significant change in the overall burden. However, there is an 
increase in labor costs from the most-

[[Page 15948]]

recently approved ICR due to an adjustment in labor rates. This ICR 
uses updated labor rates from the Bureau of Labor Statistics to 
calculate burden costs.
