    Title: NESHAP for the Surface Coating of Large Household and 
Commercial Appliances (Renewal).
    ICR Numbers: EPA ICR Number 1954.04, OMB Control Number 2060-0457.
    ICR Status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on June 30, 2009. Under 
OMB regulations, the Agency may continue to conduct or sponsor the 
collection of information while this submission is pending at OMB. An 
Agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to 
respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently 
valid OMB control number. The OMB control numbers for EPA's regulations 
in title 40 of the CFR, after appearing in the Federal Register when 
approved, are listed in 40 CFR part 9, and displayed either by 
publication in the Federal Register or by other appropriate means, such 
as on the related collection instrument or form, if applicable. The 
display of OMB control numbers in certain EPA regulations is 
consolidated in 40 CFR part 9.
    Abstract: The National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air 
Pollutants (NESHAP), for the Surface Coating of Large Household and 
Commercial Appliances were proposed on December 22, 2000 (65 FR 81133) 
and promulgated on July 23, 2002 (67 FR 48253).
    These regulations apply to existing facilities and new facilities 
that perform surface coating of large household and commercial 
appliances and related parts where the total Hazardous Air Pollutants 
(HAPs) emitted are greater than or equal to 10 tons per year of any one 
HAP; or where the total HAPs emitted are greater than or equal to 25 
tons per year of any combination of HAPs.
    In general, all NESHAP standards require initial notifications, 
performance tests, and periodic reports by the owners/operators of the 
affected facilities. They 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. These notifications, reports, and 
records are essential in determining compliance, and are required of 
all affected facilities subject to NESHAP.
    Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping 
burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 97 
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: Large household and commercial 
appliance manufacturers.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 90.
    Frequency of Response: Initially, occasionally, and semiannually.
    Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 28,845.
    Estimated Total Annual Cost: $2,498,984, which includes: $2,326,984 
in labor costs, $64,000 in annualized Capital/Start-Up costs, and 
$108,000 in O&M costs.
    Changes in the Estimates: There is no change in the total estimated 
burden currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved ICR 

    Dated: April 17, 2009.

Acting Director, Collection Strategies Division.
