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. Reports are required semiannually at a minimum.
There is a decrease in the total estimated burden as currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved Burdens. The decrease is not due to any program changes. The most recently approved ICR (ICR 1899.06) estimated the total burden associated with the regulation by adding together the burdens and costs from the ICR for the existing standard (ICR 1899.05) and the revised standard (ICR 2335.02); portions of the rule requirements and burden activities in ICRs 1899.06 and 2335.02 overlap. This ICR updates all estimates and removes any duplicate burdens.
There is no capital/startup cost associated with this ICR, which is a decrease from the most recently approved ICR. There are also changes in the O&M costs in this ICR compared to the previous ICR. These changes occurred because the most recently-revised standard has been in effect for more than three years and the requirements are different during initial compliance as compared to on-going compliance. This ICR does not include the costs and burden for conducting initial compliance tests and notifications. Additionally, this ICR assumes that all sources have already purchased monitoring and testing equipment to comply with the standard.
