In general, all NESHAP standards require initial notifications, performance tests, and periodic reports. Respondents that are not required to conduct an initial performance test are required to notify the EPA Administrator of the initial compliance status of the source. Sources are also required to monitor and maintain records of its operations including: (1) Process or control device parameters; (2) bag leak detention systems; (3) maintenance plan for air pollution control devices (e.g., capture system and venturi scrubbers); (4) certification that monitoring devices are accurate; and (5) the implementation and corrective actions taken related to the startup, shutdown and malfunction plan and the fugitive dust control plan. The types of periodic reports required by this regulation include: Opacity-related reports; performance test results reports; immediate and periodic startup/shutdown/malfunction reports, quarterly emissions reports; capture hood inspection reports; fugitive dust operations reports; and annual compliance status reports. These notifications, reports, and records are essential in determining compliance, and are required of all sources subject to NESHAP standards.
Since there are no changes in the regulatory requirements and there is no significant industry growth, the labor hours and cost figures in the previous ICR are used in this ICR, and there is no change in burden to industry.
