Authority: 44 U.S.C. 3507(a)(1)(D). This ICR seeks approval under the PRA for revisions to the Claim Adjudication Process for Alleged Presence of Pneumoconiosis information collection. Regulations 20 CFR 718, subpart B establishes the relevant medical evidence development criteria regarding coal miners who apply for Black Lung Benefits Act (30 U.S.C. 901 et seq.) payments. The Division of Coal Mine Workers’ Compensation is required to schedule a series of four diagnostic tests to help establish eligibility for black lung benefits. Each diagnostic test has its own form setting forth the medical results: Roentgenographic Interpretation (Form CM–933), Roentgenographic Quality Rereading (Form CM–933b), Medical History and Examination for Coal Mine Workers’ Pneumoconiosis (Form CM–988), Report of Arterial Blood Gas Study (CM–1159), and Report of Ventilatory Study (Form CM–2907). In addition, regulations 20 CFR 718.102 sets forth standards for accompanying chest radiographs (x-rays). This information collection has been classified as a revision, because the OWCP has made several clarifications to the data collection Federal Mine Safety and Health Act section 508 authorizes this information collection. See 30 U.S.C. 957. 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 nlaroche on DSK30NT082PROD with NOTICES SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VerDate Sep<11>2014 14:54 May 30, 2017 Jkt 241001 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 1240–0023. The current approval is scheduled to expire on May 31, 2017; however, the DOL notes that existing information collection requirements submitted to the OMB receive a month-to-month extension while they undergo review. New requirements would only take effect upon OMB approval. For additional substantive information about this ICR, see the related notice published in the Federal Register on February 10, 2017 (82 FR 10411). Interested parties are encouraged to send comments to the OMB, Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs at the address shown in the ADDRESSES section within thirty (30) days of publication of this notice in the Federal Register.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks to revise the Comparability 
of Current Work to Coal Mine Employment (Form CM-913) information 
collection that helps to ensure compensation paid to a claimant is 
accurate. Once a miner has been identified as having performed non-coal 
mine work subsequent to coal mine employment, the miner or the miner's 
survivor completes Form CM-913. The OWCP uses information provided to 
compare physical demands of the miner's coal mine work with those of 
his or her last or current non-coal mine work. This ICR has been 
classified as a revision, because the OWCP has clarified the 
information sought by asking questions that are more specific. Federal 
Mine Safety and Health Act section 508 authorizes this information 
collection. See 30 U.S.C. 957.
    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 1240-0035. The current approval is scheduled to 
expire on May 31, 2017; however, the DOL notes that existing 
information collection requirements submitted to the OMB receive a 
month-to-month extension while they undergo review. New requirements 
would only take effect upon OMB approval. For additional substantive 
information about this ICR, see the related notice published in the 
Federal Register on February 10, 2017 (82 FR 10412).

The OMB is particularly interested in comments that:
     Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is 
necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, 
including whether the information will have practical utility;
     Evaluate the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the 
burden of the proposed collection of information, including the 
validity of the methodology and assumptions used;
     Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the 
information to be collected; and
     Minimize the burden of the collection of information on
