    Title: NSPS for Magnetic Tape Coating Facilities (Renewal).
    ICR Numbers: EPA ICR Number 1135.10, OMB Control Number 2060-0171.
    ICR Status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on July 31, 2010. 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 New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) for the 
Magnetic Tape Coating Facilities (40 CFR part 60, subpart SSS) were 
proposed on January 22, 1986, and promulgated on October 3, 1988. The 
affected entities are subject to the General Provisions of the NSPS at 
40 CFR part 60, subpart A and any changes, or additions to the 
Provisions specified at 40 CFR part 60, subpart SSS. Owners or 
operators of the affected facilities must make an initial notification, 
performance tests, periodic reports, and 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

    Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping 
burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 88 
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: Magnetic tape coating facilities.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 6.
    Frequency of Response: Initially, occasionally, quarterly, and 
    Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 2,017.
    Estimated Total Annual Cost: $277,224, which includes $190,824 in 
labor costs, $33,600 in capital/startup costs, and $52,800 in operation 
and maintenance (O&M) costs.
    Changes in the Estimates: There is no change in the labor hours to 
the respondents in this ICR compared to the previous ICR because the 
regulations have not changed over the past three years and are not 
anticipated to change over the next three years. Since this ICR renewal 
was approved to be processed under the ``Expedited Approach'' option, 
EPA has maintained the same estimate for the number of sources 
currently subject to this standard as indicated in the most recently 
approved ICR. Therefore, the labor hours figures in the previous ICR 
reflect the current burden to the respondents and are reiterated in 
this ICR. However, there is a decrease number of respondents currently 
identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved ICR Burdens.
