Title:NESHAP for Metal Furniture Surface Coating (Renewal).
ICR Numbers:EPA ICR Number 1952.05, OMB Control Number 2060-0518.
ICR Status:This ICR is scheduled to expire on October 31, 2012. Under OMB regulations, the Agency may continue to either 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 RRRR.
Owners or operators of the affected facilities must submit a one-time-only report of any physical or operational changes, initial 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 also 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:Metal furniture surface coating facilities.
Estimated Number of Respondents:583.
Frequency of Response:Initially, occasionally and semiannually.
Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden:190,408.
Estimated Total Annual Cost:$22,472,732, which includes $21,773,132 in labor costs, no capital/startup costs, and $699,600 in operation and maintenance (O&M) costs.
Changes in the Estimates:There is no change in the labor 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; (2) the growth rate for the industry is very low, negative or non-existent, so there is no significant change in the overall burden. However, there is an increase in the cost-per-hour labor costs due to the updated labor rates. This ICR uses the most recently available labor rates in all burden calculations.
