Owners or operators of the affected facilities must submit a onetime-
only report of any physical or operational changes, initial performance

required to maintain records of the occurrence and duration of any

    Respondents/affected entities: Owners or operators of phosphate 
rock plants.
    Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 60, 
subpart NN).
    Estimated number of respondents: 14 (total).
    Frequency of response: Initially and semiannually.
    Total estimated burden: 1,724 hours (per year). Burden is defined 
at 5 CFR 1320.3(b).
    Total estimated cost: $301,256 (per year), which includes $132,582 
annualized capital and/or operation & maintenance costs.
    Changes in the Estimates: The increase in burden from the most 
recently approved ICR is due to an increase in the number of new or 
modified sources and an increase in labor costs. This ICR uses updated 
labor rates from the Bureau of Labor Statistics to calculate burden
