    Sections 70.202(b), 71.202(b), and 90.202(b), requires that the 
person must pass the MSHA examination on sampling of respirable coal 
mine dust.
    Sections 70.220(a), 71.220(a), and 90.220(a), requires the operator 
to report status changes to MSHA in writing within 3 working days after 
the status change has occurred.

certified by MSHA to take respirable dust samples to complete the dust 
data card that accompanies each sample being submitted for analysis.
    Sections 71.300 and 90.300 require a coal mine operator to submit 
to MSHA for approval a written respirable dust control plan within 15 
calendar days after the termination date of a citation for violation of 
the applicable dust standard.
    Section 71.301(d) requires the respirable dust control plan to be 
posted on the mine bulletin board however, 90.301(d) prohibits posting 
of the dust control plan for P-90 miners and, instead, requires a copy 
be provided to the affected P-90 miner.

II. Desired Focus of Comments

with the sampling requirements stipulated in the regulations but also 
which operators were in noncompliance with the applicable dust 
standard. After
