AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection Agency has submitted an 
information collection request (ICR), ``NSPS for Rubber Tire 
Manufacturing'' (EPA ICR No. 1158.11, OMB Control No. 2060-0156), to 
the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review and approval in 
accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq). 
This is a proposed extension of the ICR, which is currently approved 
through March 31, 2014. Public comments were requested previously, via 
the Federal Register (78 FR 33409) on June 4, 2013, 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 not conduct or 
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 January 6, 
2014.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Supporting documents which explain in detail

www.regulations.gov or in person at the EPA Docket Center, EPA West,

    Abstract: Respondents are owners or operators of rubber tire 
manufacturing plants which include each: under-tread cementing 
operation, sidewall cementing operation, tread end cementing operation, 
bead cementing operating, green tire spraying operation, Michelin-A 
operation, Michelin-B operation, and Michelin-C automatic operation. 
The standards require the submission of notification when conducting 
performance tests and periodic reporting including semiannual reports 
of excess emissions and annual reports of Method 24 formulation data.
    Form Numbers: None.
    Respondents/affected entities: Rubber tire manufacturing 
facilities.
    Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 60, 
subpart BBB).
    Estimated number of respondents: 41 (total).
    Frequency of response: Initially, annually, and semiannually.
    Total estimated burden: 17,684 hours (per year). ``Burden'' is 
defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b).
    Total estimated cost: $1,746,207 (per year), includes $16,400 
annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs.
    Changes in the Estimates: There is an adjustment increase in the 
respondent burden from the most-recently approved ICR. Based on 
consultation comments received in development of this ICR, the 
frequency of occurrence for burden items ``monitoring of VOC emissions 
and operations'' and ``recording startup, shutdown, and malfunction'' 
were revised to account for 350 days per year operation, which is 
typical for current plant operation in the industry sector. This 
results in an increase in respondent burden hours and costs.
    There is also a decrease of one burden hour for the Agency as a 
result of rounding. This ICR calculates all burden hours and costs to 
two decimal places and presents a more precise estimate.

Acting Director, Collection Strategies Division.
