Assumptions:


a. We have assumed that there are approximately 2 respondents subject to the rule, with no new sources expected over the next three-years of this ICR.


b. This ICR uses the following labor rates: $157.61 per hour for Executive, Administrative, and Managerial labor; $123.94 per hour for Technical labor, and $62.52 per hour for Clerical labor. These rates are from the United States Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics, September 2021, “Table 2. Civilian Workers, by Occupational and Industry group.” The rates are from column 1, “Total Compensation.” The rates have been increased by 110% to account for the benefit packages available to those employed by private industry.


c. We assumed that each respondent will spend one hour each year to read and understand the rule requirements.


d. As specified in the general provisions each performance test shall consist of three separate runs using the applicable test method. Sources are required to use Method 9 published in the 11th edition of the Official Methods of analysis of the Association of Official analytical Chemists dates 1970. Each run shall be conducted for the time and under the conditions specified in the applicable rule. The particulate matter concentration and volumetric flow rate of the effluent gas shall be determined by Method 5 which requires a sampling time and a sample volume for each run of at least 60 minutes and 1.50 dscm (53 dscf). Since there are no new respondents estimated, these requirements do not apply.


e. We assume that 20 percent of initial performance tests must be repeated due to failure. Since there are no new respondents estimated, these requirements do not apply.


f. We have assumed that it will take each respondent 16 hours twice per year to complete the semiannual reports.


g. Sources are required to maintain a daily record of operating parameters. We assume records will be recorded 365 days per year.


h. Totals have been rounded to 3 significant figures. Figures may not add exactly due to rounding.

Assumptions:










a. We have assumed that there are approximately 2 respondents subject to the rule, with no new sources expected over the next three-years of this ICR.


b. This cost is based on the following labor rates which incorporates a 1.6 benefits multiplication factor to account for government overhead expenses: Managerial rate of $70.56 (GS-13, Step 5, $44.10 + 60%), Technical rate of $52.37 (GS-12, Step 1, $32.73 + 60%), and Clerical rate of $26.34 (GS-6, Step 3, $17.17 + 60%). These rates are from the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) “2022 General Schedule” which excludes locality rates of pay.


c. We assume that EPA personnel will attend initial performance tests.


d. We assume that 20 percent of initial performance test must be repeated due to failure.


e. We have assumed that it will take 8 hours to review each semiannual report.


f. Totals have been rounded to 3 significant figures. Figures may not add exactly due to rounding.



Sheet 4: Capital O&M

The only type of industry costs associated with the information collection activity in the regulations are labor costs. There are no capital/startup or operation and maintenance costs.
