SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    Section 103(h) of the Federal Mine Safety and Health Act of 1977 
(Mine Act), 30 U.S.C. 813(h), authorizes MSHA to collect information 
necessary to carry out its duty in protecting the safety and health of 
miners. Further, Section 101(a) of the Mine Act, 30 U.S.C. 811 
authorizes the Secretary to develop, promulgate, and revise as may be 
appropriate, improved mandatory health or safety standards for the 
protection of life and prevention of injuries in coal and metal and 
nonmetal mines.
    The Mine Act authorizes the National Institute for Occupational 
Safety and Health (NIOSH) to study the causes and consequences of coal-
related respiratory disease, and in cooperation with MSHA, to carry out 
a program for early detection and prevention of pneumoconiosis. NIOSH 
administers the National Coal Workers' Health Surveillance Program, 
``Specifications for Medical Examinations of Underground Coal Miners,'' 
as specified in 42 CFR part 37. 30 CFR 72.100 contains collection 
requirements for these activities in paragraphs (d) and (e).
    Section 72.100(d) requires that each mine operator must develop and 
submit for approval to NIOSH a plan in accordance with 42 CFR part 37 
for providing miners with the required periodic examinations specified 
in 72.100(a) and a roster specifying the name and current address of 
each miner covered by the plan.
    Section 72.100(e) requires that each mine operator must post on the 
mine bulletin board at all times the approved plan for providing the 
examinations specified in 72.100(a).
    Section 72.100(d) and (e) are requirements that mirror NIOSH 
information collection requirements under 42 CFR 37.4 (existing OMB No. 
0920-0020). Including these requirements allows MSHA to use its 
inspection and enforcement authority to ensure that operators comply 
with these provisions.

     Minimize the burden of the collection of information on 
those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate
