Under §§ 57.22239 and 57.22231, if methane reaches 2.0 percent in a Category IV mine or if methane reaches 0.25 percent in the mine atmosphere of a Subcategory I–B, II–B, V–B, or VI mine, the MSHA is to be immediately notified. Regulations 30 CFR 57.22229 and 57.22230 require that the mine atmosphere be tested for either or both methane and carbon dioxide at least once every seven days by a competent person or atmospheric monitoring system or a combination of both. Section 57.2229 applies to an underground Metal/Non-Metal mine categorized as I–A, III, and V–A mines where the atmosphere is tested for both methane and carbon dioxide. Section 57.22230 applies to an underground Metal/Non-Metal mine categorized as II–A mines where the atmosphere is tested for methane. Where an examination discloses hazardous conditions, affected miners must be informed. Sections 57.22229(d) and 57.22230(c) require that the person performing a test certify by signature and date that the test has been conducted. Certifications of examinations are to be kept for at least one year and made available to authorized representatives of the Secretary of Labor. Federal Mine Safety and Health Act of 1977 sections 101(a) and 103(h) and (i) authorize this information collection. See 30 U.S.C. 811(a); 813(h) and (i). 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. In addition, notwithstanding any other provisions of law, no person shall generally be subject to penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information that does not display a valid Control Number. See 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and 1320.6. The DOL obtains OMB approval for this information collection under Control Number 1219–0103.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks to extend PRA authority for 
the Notification of Methane Detected in Underground Metal and Nonmetal 
Mine Atmospheres information collection requirements codified in 
regulations 30 CFR part 57. Regulations 30 CFR 57.22004(c) requires a 
Metal/Non-Metal mine operator to notify the MSHA as soon as possible 
when any of the following events occur: There is an outburst that 
results in 0.25 percent or more methane in the mine atmosphere, there 
is a blowout that results in 0.25 percent or more methane in the mine 
atmosphere, there is an ignition of methane, or air sample results 
indicate 0.25 percent or more methane in the mine atmosphere of a I-B, 
I-C, II-B, V-B, or Category VI mine. Under Sec. Sec.  57.22239 and 
57.22231, if methane reaches 2.0 percent in a Category IV mine or if 
methane reaches 0.25 percent in the mine atmosphere of a Subcategory I-
B, II-B, V-B, or VI mine, the MSHA is to be immediately notified. 
Regulations 30 CFR 57.22229 and 57.22230 require that the mine 
atmosphere be tested for either or both methane and carbon dioxide at 
least once every seven days by a competent person or atmospheric 
monitoring system or a combination of both. Section 57.2229 applies to 
an underground Metal/Non-Metal mine categorized as I-A, III, and V-A 
mines where the atmosphere is tested for both methane and carbon 
dioxide. Section 57.22230 applies to an underground Metal/Non-Metal 
mine categorized as II-A mines where the atmosphere is tested for 
methane. Where an examination discloses hazardous conditions, affected 
miners must be informed. Sections 57.22229(d) and 57.22230(c) require 
that the person performing a test certify by signature and date that 
the test has been conducted. Certifications of examinations are to be 
kept for at least one year and made available to authorized 
representatives of the Secretary of Labor. Federal Mine Safety and 
Health Act of 1977 sections 101(a) and 103(h) and (i) authorize this 
information collection. See 30 U.S.C. 811(a); 813(h) and (i).
    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. In addition, notwithstanding any 
other provisions of law, no person shall generally be subject to 
penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information that 
does not display a valid Control Number. See 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and 
1320.6. The DOL obtains OMB approval for this information collection 
under Control Number 1219-0103.
    OMB authorization for an ICR cannot be for more than three (3) 
years without renewal, and the current approval for this collection is 
scheduled to expire on September 30, 2015. The DOL seeks to extend PRA 
authorization for this information collection for three (3) more
