    ICR Numbers: EPA ICR Number 1652.08, OMB Control Number 2060-0273
    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 T.
    Owners or operators of the affected facilities must submit initial 
notification, 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: Halogenated solvent cleaners.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 1,431.
    Frequency of Response: Initially, occasionally, quarterly, 
semiannually, and annually.
    Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 45,242.
    Estimated Total Annual Cost: $5,395,561, which includes $4,380,761 
in labor costs, no capital/startup costs, and $1,014,800 in operation 
and maintenance (O&M) costs.
    Changes in the Estimates: There is an apparent increase in burden 
hours for the respondent and the Agency as compared to the previous ICR 
due to burden calculation revisions. The calculations presented in the 
previous ICR assumed that total respondent hours per year associated 
with each burden item included technical, managerial, and clerical 
labor. The previous ICR calculated technical, managerial, and clerical 
labor hours as being 85, 5, and 10 percent, respectively, of the total 
hours. To be consistent with the estimation methodology used in other 
ICRs, this ICR considers total respondent hours to include only 
technical labor, and that managerial and clerical hours account for an 
additional 5 and 10 percent, respectively, of those technical labor 
hours. Additionally, there is an adjustment increase in the respondent 
labor estimates associated with semiannual and quarterly reporting. The 
previous ICR estimated labor burdens for one semiannual report and 
three quarterly reports per year. We have revised the calculations to 

[[Page 36776]]

for the burden associated with two semiannual and four quarterly 
reports per year.
