    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 
CCCCC. 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, at a minimum, are required 
    Form Numbers: None.
    Respondents/affected entities: Owners or operators of coke oven 
batteries at a coke plant that is a major source of HAP.
    Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 63, 
subpart CCCCC).
    Estimated number of respondents: 17 (total).
    Frequency of response: Initially, occasionally, quarterly, and 
    Total estimated burden: 24,400 hours (per year). Burden is defined 
at 5 CFR 1320.3(b).
    Total estimated cost: $2,600,000 (per year), includes $152,000 
annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs.
    Changes in the Estimates: There is an overall decrease in the 
respondent and Agency burden, including a decrease in labor hours, 
labor cost, O&M cost, and estimated number of responses. The decrease 
from the previous ICR occurred because two U.S. Steel facilities have 
closed in the past three years. These two facilities operated 5 by-
product batteries. The facility closure information was obtained 
through EPA OAQPS, trade associations, and facility representatives.
