Smelters (40 CFR part 60, subpart L) (Renewal)'' (EPA ICR No. 1128.11, 
OMB Control No. 2060-0080), to the Office of Management and Budget 
(OMB) for review and approval in accordance with the Paperwork 
Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.). This is a proposed extension of

    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 the 
specific requirements at 40 CFR part 60, subpart L. 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 the standards.
    Form Numbers: None.
    Respondents/affected entities: Secondary lead smelting facilities.
    Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 60, 
subpart L).
    Estimated number of respondents: 14 (total).
    Frequency of response: Initially.
    Total estimated burden: 37 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 
CFR 1320.3(b).
    Total estimated cost: $3,720 (per year); there are neither 
annualized capital/startup nor operation & maintenance costs.
    Changes in the Estimates: In this ICR, there is a decrease in the 
number of estimated sources from 25 to 14 due to the assumption of a 
shrinking sector. However, this ICR also modifies the burden item for 
reading and understanding the rule to include time for all existing 
sources to re-familiarize themselves with the regulatory requirements 
every year. As a result, there is no net change in the labor hours 
compared to the previous ICR. The reduced number of estimated sources 
also leads to a decrease in the number of responses.
