The National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) for Ferroalloys Production Area Sources (40 CFR Part 63, Subpart YYYYYY) apply to existing and new ferroalloy production facilities that are an area source of hazardous air pollutant (HAP) emissions. 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.

Miscellaneous Actions
There is a small decrease in burden from the most recently approved ICR as currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved Burdens. This decrease is not due to any program changes. This ICR reflects a reduction in the number of respondents based on a review of facilities listed in the 2008 final rule docket that remain in operation. A review of these facilities revealed that one of the existing ten companies has shut down, while remaining facilities appear to continue to be in operation. The growth rate for this industry is very low or non-existent, so no new companies are expected to become subject to this NESHAP during the three-year period of this ICR.
