    Abstract: The New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) for Stationary Compression Ignition Internal Combustion Engines (40 CFR part 60, subpart IIII) apply to manufacturers, owners and operators of new stationary compression ignition (CI) internal combustion engines (ICE). New facilities include those that commenced construction, modification or reconstruction after the date of proposal. For the purposes of this subpart, the date that construction commences is the date the engine is ordered by the owner or operator. 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 Start Printed Page 11296startup, 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. This information is being collected to assure compliance with 40 CFR part 60, subpart IIII.

    Form Numbers: None.

    Respondents/affected entities: Manufacturers, owners and operators of new stationary compression ignition (CI) internal combustion engines (ICE).

    Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 60, subpart IIII).

    Estimated number of respondents: 206,885 (total).

    Frequency of response: Initially and annually.

    Total estimated burden: 408,000 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b).

    Total estimated cost: $46,700,000 (per year), includes $167,000 for annualized capital/startup and/or operation & maintenance costs.

    Changes in the Estimates: There is no significant increase in the burden hours in this ICR compared to the previous ICR. This because the regulations have not changed significantly over the past three years and are not anticipated to change over the next three years. The increase in labor costs from the most-recently approved ICR is due to adjustment in labor rates. We also updated the number of respondents to reflect new respondents since the approval of the prior ICR. There was no change in the capital or O&M costs. There is a small increase in the number of responses based on the adjustments to the number of respondents.
