I. Background

    MSHA evaluates and approves explosive materials and blasting units 
as permissible for use in the mining industry. However, since there are 
no permissible explosives or blasting units available that have 
adequate blasting capacity for some metal and nonmetal gassy mines, 
Standard 57.22606(a) was promulgated to provide procedures for mine 
operators to follow for the use of non-approved explosive materials and 
blasting units. Mine operators must notify MSHA in writing, of all non-
approve explosive materials and blasting units to be used prior to 
their use. MSHA evaluates the non-approved explosive materials and 
determines if they are safe for blasting in a potentially gassy 
environment.

II. Desired Focus of Comments

burden of the proposed collection of information, including the 
validity of the methodology and assumptions used;
     Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the 
information to be collected; and
     Minimize the burden of the collection of information on 
those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate 
automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection
