information collection request (ICR), NSPS for Stationary Spark 
Ignition Internal Combustion Engines (EPA ICR Number 2227.06, OMB 
Control Number 2060-0610), to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) 
for review and approval in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act. 
This is a proposed extension of the ICR, which is currently approved

via the Federal Register, on May 6, 2019 during a 60-day comment 
period. This notice allows for an additional 30 days for public 
comments. A fuller description of the ICR is given below, including its 
estimated burden and cost to the public. An agency may neither conduct 
nor sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection 
of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number.

DATES: Additional comments may be submitted on or before August 31, 

ADDRESSES: Submit your comments, referencing Docket ID Number EPA-HQ-
OECA-2013-0353, to EPA online using www.regulations.gov (our preferred 
method), or by email to [email protected], or by mail to: EPA Docket

    Abstract: The New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) for 
Stationary Spark Ignition Internal Combustion Engines (40 CFR part 60, 
subpart JJJJ) were proposed on June 12, 2006; promulgated on January 
18, 2008; and most-recently amended on February 27, 2014. These 
regulations apply to existing and new manufacturers, owners, and 
operators of stationary spark ignition (SI) internal combustion engines 
(ICE) that commenced construction, modification, or reconstruction 
either on or after the dates specified at 40 CFR 60.4230(a)(1)-(6). New 
facilities include those that commenced construction, modification or 
reconstruction after the date of proposal. This information is being 
collected to assure compliance with 40 CFR part 60, subpart JJJJ.
    In general, all NSPS 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 NSPS.
    Form Numbers: None.
    Respondents/affected entities: Manufacturers, owners, and operators 
of stationary spark ignition internal combustion engines (SI ICE).
    Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 60, 
subpart JJJJ).
    Estimated number of respondents: 19,329 (total).
    Frequency of response: Annually.
    Total estimated burden: 36,600 hours (per year). Burden is defined 
at 5 CFR 1320.3(b).
    Total estimated cost: $6,860,000 (per year), which includes 
$2,570,000 in annualized capital/startup and/or operation & maintenance 
    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 or 
changes in regulatory requirements. The change in the burden and cost 
estimates is due primarily to an increase in the number of existing 
sources subject to rule requirements. This increase is based on the 
growth rate from the prior ICR and assumes continued growth in the 
manufacture and use of SI ICE. This has led to an increase in O&M 
costs, as well as for recordkeeping and reporting costs.

Director, Regulatory Support Division.
