Download as PDF 79196 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 248 / Wednesday, December 24, 2008 / Notices I. Background Under 30 CFR 5.50, MSHA may revise the fee schedule for testing, evaluation, and approval of mining products at least once every three years although the fee schedule must remain in effect for at least one year. MSHA’s existing fee schedule, revised December 27, 2007 (72 FR 73380), became effective January 1, 2008. Under 30 CFR 5.30(a), the new fee adjustment does not apply to the 30 CFR part 15 testing (explosives and sheathed explosive units). In addition, under 30 CFR 5.40, it does not apply to travel expenses incurred under this Part. When the nature of the product requires MSHA to test and evaluate the product at a location other than on MSHA premises, MSHA must be reimbursed for the travel, subsistence, and incidental expenses of its representative according to Federal government travel regulations. This reimbursement is separate from, and in addition to, the fees charged for evaluation and testing. II. Fee Computation MSHA computed the 2009 fees using FY 2008 costs for baseline data. MSHA calculated a weighted-average based on the direct and indirect costs to applicants for testing, evaluation, and approval services rendered during FY 2008. From this average, MSHA computed a single hourly rate, which applies uniformly to all applications. As a result of this process, MSHA has determined that as of January 1, 2009, the fee will be $90 per hour of services rendered. III. Applicable Fee • Applications postmarked before January 1, 2009: MSHA will process these applications under the 2008 hourly rate of $84. • Applications postmarked on or after January 1, 2009: MSHA will process these applications under the 2009 hourly rate of $90.
