    Abstract: The National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) for Boat Manufacturing (40 Start Printed Page 65382CFR part 63, subpart VVVV) apply to both existing and new boat manufacturing facilities that are a major source of hazardous air pollutant (HAP) emissions. This regulation covers resin and gel coat operations at fiberglass boat manufacturers, paint and coating operations at aluminum boat manufacturers, and carpet and fabric adhesive operations at all boat manufacturers. Air toxics are released during application and curing from the resins, gel coats, adhesives, coating, and solvents used in boat manufacturing. New facilities include those that commenced construction or reconstruction after the date of proposal. The EPA proposed revised standards to the NESHAP for Boat Manufacturing on May 17, 2019 (84 FR 22642); however, the proposed amendments have not been finalized; and therefore, the `Burden' reflected in this ICR does not consider `burden' from the proposed amendments, but is based on the existing standards.

    This information is being collected to assure compliance with 40 CFR part 63, subpart VVVV. 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.

    Form Numbers: None.

    Respondents/Affected Entities: Boat manufacturing facilities.

    Respondent's Obligation To Respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 63, subpart VVVV).

    Estimated Number of Respondents: 93 (total).

    Frequency of Response: Initially, occasionally and semiannually.

    Total Estimated Burden: 21,100 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b).

    Total Estimated Cost: $2,450,000 (per year), which includes $0 for annualized capital and/or operation & maintenance costs.

    Changes in the Estimates: The decrease in burden from the most-recently approved ICR is due to a decrease in the number of respondents subject to these standards. This decrease is not due to any program changes. This ICR, by in large, reflects the on-going burden and costs for existing facilities. Additionally, this ICR removes operation and maintenance costs which were included in the most-recently approved ICR for one source using add-on controls. Based on a recent inventory, at this time all facilities are estimated to comply with the rule using compliant materials and no facilities operate add-on controls.
