    Abstract: The National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) for Beryllium Rocket Motor Fuel Firing were promulgated on April 6, 1973, and amended on both October 17, 2000 and February 27, 2014. The 2014 amendment promulgated technical and editorial corrections for source testing of emissions and operations. These regulations apply to existing and new building, structure, facility, or installation where the static test firing of a beryllium rocket motor and/or the disposal of beryllium propellant is conducted. New facilities include those that commenced construction or reconstruction after the date of promulgation. Owners and operators of affected facilities are required to comply with reporting and recordkeeping requirements for the General Provisions (40 CFR part 60, subpart A), as well as the specific requirements at 40 CFR part 61, subpart D. Owners or operators of the affected facilities must submit a one-time only report of any physical or operational changes, initial performance tests, and periodic reports and results.

    Form Numbers: None.Start Printed Page 24785

    Respondents/affected entities: Owners or operators of beryllium rocket motor fuel firing facilities.

    Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 61, subpart D).

    Estimated number of respondents: 1 (total).

    Frequency of response: Initially and occasionally.

    Total estimated burden: 9 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b).

    Total estimated cost: $997 (per year), which includes neither annualized capital nor operation & maintenance costs.

    Changes in the Estimates: There is no change in the labor hours or cost in this ICR compared to the previous ICR. This is due to two considerations: (1) The regulations have not changed over the past three years and are not anticipated to change over the next three years; and (2) the growth rate for the industry is very low, negative or non-existent, so there is no significant change in the overall burden. Since there are no changes in the regulatory requirements and there is no significant industry growth, the labor hours and cost figures in the previous ICR are used in this ICR and there is no change in burden to industry.
