The New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) for Petroleum Refineries were proposed on June 11, 1973, promulgated on March 8, 1974, and amended on both September 12, 2012 and December 1, 2015. The 2015 amendment finalized technical clarifications to improve consistency and clarity and to address issues related to a 2008 industry petition for reconsideration. The 2012 amendment allowed the option for affected sources to comply with Subpart J by following the applicable provisions in the NSPS Subpart Ja rule. The affected sources are: 1) fluid catalytic cracking unit (FCCU) catalyst regenerator or fuel gas combustion device (FGCD) other than a flare that commenced construction, reconstruction or modification after June 11, 1973 and on/or before May 14, 2007; 2) FGCD that is also a flare that commenced construction, reconstruction or modification after June 11, 1973 and on/or before June 24, 2008; or 3) any Claus sulfur recovery plant with a design capacity of more than 20 long tons per day sulfur feed which commenced construction, reconstruction or modification after October 4, 1976 and on/or before May 14, 2007. 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 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 with 40 CFR Part 60, Subpart J.

There is a decrease in burden from the most-recently approved ICR as currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved Burdens. This is due to a decrease in the number of respondents subject to Subpart J. The estimated number of respondents is based on EPAs Enforcement and Compliance History Online (ECHO) database, data collected per the Agencys industry analysis in its recent 2018 and 2020 rulemakings and confirmed through industry consultations. The regulations have not changed over the past three years and are not anticipated to change over the next three years. The growth rate for this industry is very low or non-existent. Since there are no changes in the regulatory requirements and there is no significant industry growth, there are no changes in the capital/startup costs. There is a decrease in operation and maintenance (O&M) costs due to a decrease in the number of respondents with these costs. O&M costs have been updated from 2005 to 2019 using the CEPCI Index.
