    Title: NSPS for Automobile and Light Duty Truck Surface Coating 
Operations (Renewal)
    ICR Numbers: EPA ICR Number 1064.17, OMB Control Number 2060-0034
    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 NSPS at 40 CFR part 60, subpart A, and any changes, 
or additions to the Provisions specified at 40 CFR part 60, subpart MM. 
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.

[[Page 36772]]

    Respondents/Affected Entities: Owners or operators of facilities 
that conduct automobile and light duty truck surface coating operations
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 60
    Frequency of Response: Initially, quarterly, and semiannually
    Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 175,195. ``Burden'' is defined 
at 5 CRF 1320.3 (b)
    Estimated Total Annual Cost: $17,067,068, which includes 
$16,963,868 in labor costs, $1,700 in capital/startup costs, and 
$101,500 in operation and maintenance (O&M) costs.
    Changes in the Estimates: There is an increase in burden for both 
the respondents and the Agency from the most recently approved ICR. The 
adjustment increase reflects an increased number of respondents subject 
to the standard since the last ICR. This ICR uses updated data from 
OTIS in estimating the respondent universe, which is consistent with 
the projected industry growth in the previous ICR. This ICR also uses 
updated labor rates in calculating all burden costs, thus the overall 
result is an increase in labor hours, labor costs, as well as in total 
O&M costs
    This ICR corrects a mathematical error in calculating the number of 
responses. Furthermore, we corrected the number of sources that are 
required to maintain continuous monitoring system (CMS) in Table 1, 
line item 5. This ICR assumes that all sources incur costs associated 
with CMS and data management systems, which is consistent with the 
methodology used in calculating O&M costs. These changes also 
contribute to an increase in the number of total responses, as well as 
an increase in labor hours and costs.
