    Abstract: The National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) for the regulations published at 40 CFR part 63, subpart TTTTT were proposed on January 22, 2003, promulgated on October 10, 2003, and Start Printed Page 18281amended on April 20, 2006. These regulations apply to existing and new facilities that perform primary magnesium refining where the total hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) emitted are greater than, or equal to, 10 tons per year for each HAP, or where the total HAPs emitted are greater than, or equal to, 25 tons per year of any combination of HAPs. New facilities include those that commenced construction or reconstruction after the date of proposal. This information is being collected to assure compliance with 40 CFR part 63, subpart TTTTT.

    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: Primary magnesium refining facilities.

    Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 63 Subpart TTTTT).

    Estimated number of respondents: 1 (total).

    Frequency of response: Initially, occasionally, and semiannually.

    Total estimated burden: 611 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b).

    Total estimated cost: $70,900 (per year), includes $1,200 annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs.

    Changes in the Estimates: There is no change in the labor hours or O&M cost in this ICR compared to the previous ICR. This is due to two considerations. First, the regulations have not changed over the past three years and are not anticipated to change over the next three years. Secondly, the growth rate for the industry is very low, negative or non-existent, so there is no significant change in the overall burden.
