The New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) for Hot Mix Asphalt Facilities (40 CFR Part 60, Subpart I) apply to hot mix asphalt facilities that commenced construction or modification after June 11, 1973. A hot mix asphalt facility is comprised only of any combination of the following: dryers; systems for screening, handling, storing, and weighing hot aggregate; systems for loading, transferring, and storing mineral filler; systems for mixing hot mix asphalt; and the loading, transfer, and storage systems associated with emission control systems. 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 I.

Miscellaneous Actions
There is a decrease in the total estimated burden as currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved Burdens. This decrease is not due to any program changes. The decrease in burden from the most-recently approved ICR is due to a decrease in the number of sources. This ICR reflects a decrease in the number of respondents and additional respondents that the Agency anticipates will become subject to these standards or modify existing facilities. The estimates in the current approved ICR were based on estimates collected in 2008 and adjusted for growth over time. This ICR adjusts the number of respondents based on a review of facilities identified in EPAs Enforcement and Compliance History Online (ECHO) database, assuming a similar rate of growth and modification of existing facilities (about two and three percent, respectively). EPAs ECHO database is the most-recent source of facility information available for hot mix asphalt facilities and should reflect a more accurate estimate of existing facilities. We have assumed a similar rate of growth and modification of existing facilities due to anticipated continuous demand within the asphalt mixing industry. This ICR also corrects an error from the most-recently approved ICR by accounting for the burden for responses for notifications of performance tests for respondents required to conduct a repeat performance test. The overall result is a decrease in burden.
