SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In order to ensure full and meaningful public participation, this notice invites public comments to be submitted under the PRA about proposed updates to the Claim Adjudication Process for Alleged Presence of Pneumoconiosis information collection. Specifically, in a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) published in the Federal Register on June 13, 2013 (78 FR 35575), the DOL proposed both updates to its existing analog film radiograph standards and new parallel standards for digital radiographs applicable to claims filed under the Black Lung Benefits Act, as amended, 30 U.S.C. 901 et seq. If adopted in final, physicians obtaining xrays of miners on digital radiography systems would submit the radiograph to the DOL in an electronic format. The DOL is incorporating this format change into the existing approved information collection. The DOL believes the NPRM would not impose a new information collection, change the actual data collected, or the estimated information collection (paperwork) burdens imposed on the public; however, the additional format option could be considered a change to the existing information collection, as currently approved under the PRA. This information collection is subject to the PRA. A Federal agency generally cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information, and the public is generally not required to respond to an information collection, unless it is approved by the OMB under the PRA and displays a currently valid OMB Control Number.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In order to ensure full and meaningful

DOL proposed both updates to its existing analog film radiograph 
standards and new parallel standards for digital radiographs applicable 
to claims filed under the Black Lung Benefits Act, as amended, 30 
U.S.C. 901 et seq. If adopted in final, physicians obtaining x-rays of 
miners on digital radiography systems would submit the radiograph to 
the DOL in an electronic format. The DOL is incorporating this format 
change into the existing approved information collection. The DOL 
believes the NPRM would not impose a new information collection, change 
the actual data collected, or the estimated information collection 
(paperwork) burdens imposed on the public; however, the additional 
format option could be considered a change to the existing information 
collection, as currently approved under the PRA.
