    ICR Numbers: EPA ICR Number 2196.04, OMB Control Number 2060-0590.
    ICR Status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on August 31, 2012. 
Under OMB regulations, the Agency may continue to conduct or sponsor 
the collection of information while this submission is pending at OMB.
    Abstract: The New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) for 
Stationary Source Compression Ignition Internal Combustion Engines (40 
CFR part 60, Subpart IIII) were proposed on July 11, 2005, promulgated 
on July 11, 2006, and amended on June, 8, 2011. 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 IIII.
    Owners or operators of the affected facilities must submit initial 
notification, 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.
    Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping 
burden for this collection of information is estimated to average one 
hour 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 stationary 
source compression ignition internal combustion engines.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 206,410.
    Frequency of Response: Initially and annually.
    Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 193,707.
    Estimated Total Annual Cost: $18,803,009, which includes 
$18,560,917 in labor costs, no capital/startup costs, and $242,092 in 
operation and maintenance (O&M) costs.
    Changes in the Estimates: There is an adjustment increase in the 
total estimated burden hours and a decrease in the total estimated cost 
for the respondents as currently identified in the OMB Inventory of 
Approved Burdens. This is not due to any program changes. The increase 
in burden hours reflects a growth in the respondent universe since the 
last ICR renewal. The decrease in costs is due to a mathematical error 
that has been corrected since the last ICR.
    There is an adjustment increase in the total estimated burden hours 
and costs for the Agency as currently identified in the OMB Inventory 
of Approved Burdens. The increase reflects a mathematical correction in 
the burden hour calculation and an adjustment in labor rates. This ICR 
uses updated labor rates in estimating the burden costs for all labor
