This program helps to ensure that requested data can be provided in the desired format, reporting burden (time and financial resources) is minimized, collection instruments are clearly understood, and the impact of collection requirements on respondents can be properly assessed. Currently, the Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) is soliciting comments concerning the extension of the information collection related to the 30 CFR Sections 70.209, 71.209, and 90.209—Mine Operator Dust Data Card; 70.201(c), 71.201(c), 90.201(c)— Reporting Operator Sampling Dates; 70.202(b), 71.202(b), and 90.202(b)— Dust Sampling Certification; 70.220(a), 71.220(a), and 90.220(a)—Reporting Status Changes; and 71.300, 71.301(d), 90.300, and 90.301(d)—Respirable Dust Control Plan.
