I. Background

    The requirements related to OMB 1219-0145 are intended to help 
protect miners by assuring that MSHA inspectors can verify that 
automatic fire sensor and warning device systems are maintained and 
calibrated and will function properly when needed. Technical advances 
have made it practicable to automatically detect fires in mines and to 
warn miners, helping prevent deaths when a fire occurs. MSHA requires 
mine operators to ensure these protective sensors and devices operate 
as designed and contribute to improved miner safety.

II. Desired Focus of Comments

    The Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) is soliciting 
comments concerning the proposed extension of information collection 
related to automatic sensing systems and warning devices. MSHA is 
particularly interested in comments that:

necessary for the proper performance of MSHA's functions, including 
whether the information has practical utility;
     Evaluate the accuracy of MSHA's estimate of the burden of 
the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the 
methodology and assumptions used;
     Suggest methods to enhance the quality, utility, and 
clarity of the information to be collected; and
     Address the use of appropriate automated, electronic, 
mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms 
of information technology, (e.g., permitting electronic submissions of 
responses) to minimize the burden of the collection of information on 
those who are to respond.
