    Abstract: The affected entities are subject to the General 
Provisions of the NESHAP at 40 CFR part 61, subpart A, and any changes 
or additions to the Provisions specified at 40 CFR part 60, subpart 
DDDD. Owners or operators of the affected facilities must submit 
initial notification, performance tests, and periodic reports and 
results. Owners and 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 when the 
monitoring system is inoperative.
    Form Numbers: None.
    Respondents/affected entities: Owners or operators of commercial 
and industrial solid waste incineration units.
    Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 60, 
subpart DDDD).
    Estimated number of respondents: 57 (total).
    Frequency of response: Initially, occasionally, semiannually, and 
    Total estimated burden: 7,378 hours (per year). Burden is defined 
at 5 CFR 1320.3(b).
    Total estimated cost: $8,694,601 (per year), includes $8,271,404 
annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs.
    Changes in the Estimates: The change in the burden and cost 
estimates occurred because the standard has been in effect for more 
than three years and the requirements are different during initial 
compliance as compared to on-going compliance. The previous ICR 
reflected those burdens and costs associated with the initial 
activities for subject facilities. This includes purchasing monitoring 
equipment, conducting performance tests and establishing recordkeeping 
systems. This ICR, by in large, reflects the on-going burden and costs 
for existing facilities. Activities for existing source include 
continuously monitoring of pollutants and the submission of annual 
performance test results and semiannual reports of exceedances. The 
overall result is a decrease in burden hours and labor costs. However, 
there is an increase in the total O&M costs as this ICR reflects the 
burden associated with annual performance testing requirement of the 
Emission Guidelines.
    In addition to the changes above, this ICR revises the number of 
respondents using the latest Agency estimates, and corrects the number 
of responses as the previous ICR incorrectly included internal records 
as a response. This attributes to a decrease in the number of 
respondents and number of responses.
