    Abstract: The National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air 
Pollutants (NESHAP) for Rubber Tire Manufacturing (40 CFR part 63, 
subpart XXXX) apply to existing and new facilities that are involved in 
rubber processing, tire production, tire cord production, and puncture 
sealant application. New facilities include those that commenced 
construction or reconstruction after the date of proposal. 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 with 40 CFR part 63, 
subpart XXXX.
    Form Numbers: None.
    Respondents/affected entities: Rubber tire manufacturers.
    Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 63, 
subpart XXXX).
    Estimated number of respondents: 23 (total).
    Frequency of response: Initially, occasionally, semiannually, and 
    Total estimated burden: 6,520 hours (per year). Burden is defined 
at 5 CFR 1320.3(b).
    Total estimated cost: $910,000 (per year), which includes $0 
annualized capital/startup and/or operation & maintenance costs.
    Changes in the estimates: This ICR reflects the requirements for 
on-going compliance (existing facilities) with the rule. The number of 
sources presented in this ICR reflects current data obtained from 
industry, including information on the use of compliance alternatives 
used by the affected facilities. Based on consultations with the trade 
group, no facilities are using control devices to comply with the
