The petitioner states that: (1) Weekly inspection and functional tests are conducted of its complete deluge-type water spray system; (2) each nozzle is provided with a blow-off dust cover; (3) in view of the frequent inspections and functional testing of the system, the dust covers are not necessary because the nozzles can be maintained in an unclogged condition through weekly use; and (4) it is burdensome to recap the large number of covers weekly after each inspection and functional test. The petitioner asserts that the proposed alternative method will at all times guarantee no less than the same measure of protection afforded the miners as the existing standard. Patricia W.

A notice was published in the Federal Register of the pendency before the Department of a proposal to grant such exemption.

The application has been available for public inspection at the Department in Washington, DC. The notice also invited interested persons to submit comments on the requested exemption to the Department.

Public comments were received by the Department as described in the granted exemption.

App. 1 (1996), transferred the authority of the Secretary of the Treasury to issue exemptions of the type proposed to the Secretary of Labor.
