    Title: NESHAP for Flexible Polyurethane Foam Production (Renewal)
    ICR Numbers: EPA ICR Number 1783.06, OMB Control Number 2060-0357.
    ICR Status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on June 30, 2013. 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 
III. Owners or operators of the affected facilities must submit an 
initial notification report, 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 required semiannually 
at a minimum.
    Respondents/Affected Entities: Owners or operators of flexible 
polyurethane foam product facilities
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 132
    Frequency of Response: Initially, occasionally, semiannually and 
annually
    Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 9,047
    Estimated Total Annual Cost: $874,812, which includes $874,812 in 
labor costs, no capital/startup costs, and no 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; and (2) the growth rate for the industry is very low, negative 
or non-existent. Therefore, the labor hours in the previous ICR reflect 
the current burden and are reiterated in this ICR; however, there is an 
increase in total labor costs to the respondents and the Agency due to 
an increase in labor rates. The increase is not due to any program 
changes.
