SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Fee Computation

    MSHA has revised its fee schedule for 2006 in accordance with part 
5 of 30 CFR, which was amended by a direct final rule published in the 
Federal Register (70 FR 46336) on August 9, 2005. For approval 
applications postmarked before January 1, 2006, MSHA will continue to 
calculate fees under the previous (2005) fee schedule, published on 
December 29, 2004 (69 FR 78046).
    In general, MSHA computed the 2006 fees based on fiscal year 2005 
data. The Agency calculated a weighted-average, direct cost for all of 
the services that it provided during fiscal year 2005 in the processing 
of requests for testing, evaluation, and approval of equipment and 
materials manufactured for use in the mining industry. From this cost, 
MSHA calculated a single hourly rate to apply uniformly.

Changes to Fee Assessments for 2006

    On November 7, 2005, MSHA's direct final rule became effective (70 
FR 67632). This final rule amended part 5

[[Page 77428]]

to reflect established policy and procedures for administering user 
fees. In addition, the final rule advised the public that the fees 
relating to part 15 testing of explosives would be modified. In recent 
years, MSHA has relied on the Department of Health and Human Services' 
National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) to 
conduct part 15 testing on its behalf. Since NIOSH no longer has the 
facilities to conduct all of the part 15 tests, the tests will be 
contracted out to other organizations. For additional information 
regarding part 15 testing, please contact Steven J. Luzik, Chief, 
Approval and Certification Center, 304-547-2029 or 304-547-0400.
