    Abstract: The National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air 
Pollutants (NESHAP) for Paper and Other Web Coating were proposed on 
September 13, 2000 and promulgated on December 4, 2002. These 
regulations apply to existing facilities and new paper and to other web 
coating facilities, including web coating lines engaged in the coating 
of metal webs used in flexible packaging, and web coating lines engaged 
in the coating of fabric substrates for use in pressure sensitive tape 
and abrasive materials. New facilities include those that commenced 
construction or reconstruction after the date of proposal. This 
information is being collected to assure compliance with 40 CFR part 
63, subpart JJJJ.
    In general, all NESHAP standards require initial notifications, 
performance tests, and periodic reports by the owners/operators of the 
affected facilities. They 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. These notifications, reports, and 
records are essential in determining compliance, and are required of 
all affected facilities subject to NESHAP.
    Any owner/operator subject to the provisions of this part shall 
maintain a file of these measurements, and retain the file for at least 
five years following the date of such measurements, maintenance 
reports, and records.
    Form Numbers: None.
    Respondents/affected entities: Facilities that perform surface 
coating of large household and commercial appliances and related parts.
    Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 63, 
subpart NNNN).
    Estimated number of respondents: 114 (total).
    Frequency of response: Initially, occasionally, and semiannually.
    Total estimated burden: 36,500 hours (per year). Burden is defined 
at 5 CFR 1320.3(b).
    Total estimated cost: $4,350,000 (per year), includes $680,000 
annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs.
    Changes in the Estimates: There is an increase in the total 
estimated burden as currently identified in the OMB Inventory of 
Approved Burdens. This

increase is not due to any program changes. The change in the burden 
and cost estimates occurred because the total number of respondents has 
increased, after accounting for anticipated industry growth over three
