    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 specified at 40 CFR Part 63, Subpart YYYYY. Owners or 
operators of the affected facilities must submit a one-time-only report 
of any physical or operational changes, initial 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 
addressing (1) the number of mercury switches removed or the weight of 
mercury recovered from the switches and properly managed, the estimated 
number of vehicles processed, an estimate of the percent of mercury 
switches recovered, and a certification that the recovered mercury 
switches were recycled at RCRA-permitted facilities, and (2) the 
control of contaminants from scrap according to the requirements in 
Sec.  63.10(e) are required semiannually.
    Form Numbers: None.
    Respondents/affected entities: Owners or operators of electric arc 
furnace steelmaking facilities.
    Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR Part 63, 
Subpart YYYYY).
    Estimated number of respondents: 87 (total).
    Frequency of response: Initially, semiannually and occasionally.
    Total estimated burden: 1,417 hours (per year). Burden is defined 
at 5 CFR 1320.3(b).
    Total estimated cost: $136,341 (per year), includes no annualized 
capital or operation & maintenance costs.
    Changes in the Estimates: There is a decrease in the respondent 
burden and an increase in Agency burden. These changes occurred due to 
the following adjustment: (1) This ICR revises the number of 
respondents from 91 to 87 based on input provided from industry trade 
association; and (2) This ICR corrects the frequency of semiannual 
report review from one to two in Table 2. This correction results in an 
increase in the estimated Agency burden.
