Abstract: Owners and operators of affected facilities are required
to comply with reporting and record keeping requirements for the
general provisions of 40 CFR part 60, subpart A, as well as for the
provisions of Subparts T, U, V, W, and X. This includes submitting
initial notifications, performance tests and periodic reports and
results, and maintaining 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 reports are used by EPA to determine compliance with
Form Numbers: None.
Respondents/affected entities: New and existing facilities that
engage in the manufacture of phosphate fertilizers and have a design
capacity of more than 15 tons of equivalent phosphorous pentoxide
(P2O5) feed per calendar day.
Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 63,
subparts T, U, V, W, and X).
Estimated number of respondents: 13 (total).
Frequency of response: Initially, occasionally and semiannually.
Total estimated burden: 1,390 hours (per year). Burden is defined
at 5 CFR 1320.3(b).
Total estimated cost: $460,000 (per year), which includes $320,000
in annualized capital/startup and/or operation & maintenance costs.
Changes in the Estimates: The increase in burden from the most-
recently approved ICR is due to accounting for the assumption that all
sources will spend one hour annually reviewing and understanding the
rule requirements. Previously, the assumption was that only new sources
would incur this burden.
There is a small decrease in O&M cost in this ICR due to rounding
of all calculated values to three significant digits. In addition,
there is an increase of two annual responses due to a minor correction.
The previous ICR did not account for notifications of operational
changes in calculating the number of responses.
