    Title: NSPS--Other Solid Waste Incineration Units (Renewal).
    ICR Numbers: EPA ICR Number 2163.03, OMB Control Number 2060-0563.
    ICR Status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on March 31, 2009. 
Under OMB regulations, the Agency may continue to conduct or sponsor 
the collection of information while this submission is pending at OMB. 
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's regulations 
in title 40 of the CFR, after appearing in the Federal Register when 
approved, are listed in 40 CFR part 9, and displayed either by 
publication in the Federal Register or by other appropriate means, such 
as on the related collection instrument or form, if applicable. The 
display of OMB control numbers in certain EPA regulations is 
consolidated in 40 CFR part 9.
    Abstract: The New Source Performance Standards (NSPS)--Other Solid 
Waste Incineration (OSWI) units were proposed on December 8, 2004, and 
promulgated on December 16, 2005. These regulations apply to very small 
municipal waste combustion units and institutional waste incineration 
units. A new incineration unit subject to this subpart should meet one 
of the two criteria: (1) Commenced construction after December 9, 2004; 
or (2) commenced reconstruction or modification on or after June 16, 
    Owners or operators of the affected facilities must make a one-
time-only report of the date of construction or reconstruction, 
notification of the actual date of startup, notification of any 
physical or operational change to existing facility that may increase 
the rate of emission of the regulated pollutant, notification of 
initial performance test, and results of initial performance test. 
Owners or operators are also required to maintain records of the 
occurrence and duration of any startup, shutdown, or malfunction, or 
any period during which the monitoring system is inoperative. 
Performance tests are the Agency's records of a source's initial 
capability to comply with emissions standards and not the operating 
conditions under which compliance was to achieve. Annual and semiannual 
reports are also required.
    Any owner or operator subject to the provisions of this subpart 
must maintain a file of these measurements and retain the file for at 
least five years following the collection of such measurements, 
maintenance reports, and records.
    All reports are sent to the delegated state or local authority. In 
the event that there is no such delegated authority, the reports are 
sent directly to the EPA regional office. This information is being 
collected to assure compliance with 40 CFR part 60, subpart EEEE, as 
authorized in sections 112 and 114(a) of the Clean Air Act. The 
required information consists of emissions data and other information 
that have been determined to be private.
    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 Number 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 zero 
hours per response. Burden means the total time, effort, or financial 
resources expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, or 
disclose and provide information to or for a Federal agency. This

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. All existing 
ways will have to adjust to comply with any previously applicable 
instructions and requirements that 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 other solid 
waste incineration units.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 0.
    Frequency of Response: Initially, annually and semiannually.
    Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 0.
    Estimated Total Annual Cost: $0.
    Changes in the Estimates: There are no changes in the total 
estimated burden as currently identified in the OMB Inventory of 
Approved Burdens. At present, there are no OSWI units that are 
currently subject to the regulations, and it is estimated that no new 
units are expected to be constructed or operated over the next three 
years. It is assumed that potential respondents would use alternative 
methods of waste disposal that are more economical, e.g. landfills, 
rather than replacing existing OSWI units. No respondent or agency 
burdens or costs have been estimated and no annual burden is expected.
