    Title: NESHAP for Shipbuilding and Ship Repair Facilities--Surface 
Coating (Renewal).
    ICR Numbers: EPA ICR Number 1712.06, OMB Control Number 2060-0330.
    ICR Status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on August 31, 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 respondents are owners or operators of Shipbuilding 
and Ship Repair Facilities. Operations covered include: primer and top 
coat application in manufacturing processes and in ship repair 
processes. The National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants 
(NESHAP) regulation, 40 CFR part 63, subpart II, was promulgated on 
December 15, 1995. Owners or operators of the affected facilities 
described must make initial reports when a source becomes subject, 
conduct and report on a performance test, demonstrate and report on 
continuous monitor performance, and maintain records of the occurrence 
and duration of any startup, shutdown, or malfunction in the operation 
of an affected facility. Semiannual reports of excess emissions are 
required. These notifications, reports, and records are essential in 
determining compliance; and are required, in general, of all sources 
subject to NESHAP.
    Any owner or operator subject to the provisions of this part shall 
maintain a file of these measurements, and retain the file for at least 
five years following the date of such measurements, maintenance 
reports, and records. All reports are sent to the delegated state or 
local authority. In the event that there is no such delegated 
authority, the reports are sent directly to the EPA regional office.
    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 40 CFR are listed in 40 CFR part 9 and are identified on 
the form and/or instrument, if applicable.
    Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping 
burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 255 
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 shipbuilding 
and ship repair facilities.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 56.
    Frequency of Response: Semiannually, On Occasion, Initially.
    Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 28,594 hours.
    Estimated Total Annual Cost: $1,740,381 in labor costs, 
exclusively. There are no capital/startup or Operations and Maintenance 
costs associated with this ICR.
    Changes in the Estimates: There is no change in the burden hours or 
cost to the respondents 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 respondents is very low, 
negative or nonexistent. Therefore, the labor hours and cost figures in 
the previous ICR reflect the current burden to the respondents and are 
reiterated in

[[Page 38615]]

this ICR. In the previous ICR, the cost figure was rounded-up to the 
nearest thousand. In this ICR, the figure is rounded to the nearest 

    Dated: July 29, 2009.
