Title:NESHAP for the Wood Building Products Surface Coating Industry (Renewal).
ICR Numbers:EPA ICR Number 2034.05, OMB Control Number 2060-0510.
ICR Status:This ICR is scheduled to expire on September 30, 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 affected entities are subject to the General Provisions of the NESHAP at 40 CFR part 63, subpart A, and any changes, or additions to the Provisions specified at 40 CFR part 63, subpart QQQQ.
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, at a minimum, are required semiannually.
Burden Statement:The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 109 hours 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 wood building products surface coating facilities.
Estimated Number of Respondents:232.
Frequency of Response:Initially, occasionally, and semiannually.
Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden:75,771.
Estimated Total Annual Cost:$7,554,577, which includes $7,276,177 in labor costs, no capital/startup costs, and $278,400 in operation and maintenance (O&M) costs.
Changes in the Estimates:There is no change in the burden hours in this ICR compared to the previous ICR. This is due to two considerations: (1) The regulations have not changed over the past three years and are not anticipated to change over the next three years; and (2) the growth rate for the industry is very low, negative or non-existent, so there is no significant change in the overall burden.
There is an increase in costs for both the respondents and the Agency from the most recently approved ICR. The increase in burden cost is due to an increase in labor rates. This ICR uses updated labor rates from the Bureau of Labor Statistics to calculate burden costs.
