SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks approval under the PRA for revisions to the Periodic Medical Surveillance Examinations for Coal Miners information collection requirements codified in regulations 30 CFR 72.100(d) and (e). More specifically, this ICR covers requirements for each mine operator to develop and submit for approval for National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) a plan in accordance with 42 CFR part 37 for providing miners with the required periodic examinations specified in 30 CFR 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). This information collection has been classified as a revision, because the agency has previously DATES: DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE Jkt 241001 PO 00000 Frm 00114 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 25337 incorporated added information collection requirements also covered by this collection, including the associated burdens, to other approved information collections. In order not to double count those burdens, this collection would now drop those requirements from this collection. Federal Mine Safety and Health Act of 1977 sections 101(a) and 103(h) authorize this information collection. See 30 U.S.C. 811(a), 813(h). 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 1219–0152. 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 March 14, 2017 (82 FR 13658). 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. In order to help ensure appropriate consideration, comments should mention OMB Control Number 1219–0152. 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 those who are to respond, including through the E:\FR\FM\01JNN1.SGM 01JNN1 25338 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 104 / Thursday, June 1, 2017 / Notices use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Notice of the Application for Expansion The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is providing notice that MET Laboratories, Inc. (MET), is applying for expansion of its current recognition as an NRTL. MET requests the addition of three test standards to its NRTL scope of recognition. OSHA recognition of an NRTL signifies that the organization meets the requirements specified in 29 CFR 1910.7. Recognition is an acknowledgment that the organization can perform independent safety testing and certification of the specific products covered within its scope of recognition. Each NRTL’s scope of recognition includes (1) the type of products the NRTL may test, with each type specified by its applicable test standard; and (2) the recognized site(s) that has/have the technical capability to perform the product-testing and productcertification activities for test standards within the NRTL’s scope. Recognition is not a delegation or grant of government authority; however, recognition enables employers to use products approved by the NRTL to meet OSHA standards that require product testing and certification. The Agency processes applications by an NRTL for initial recognition and for an expansion or renewal of this recognition, following requirements in Appendix A to 29 CFR 1910.7. This appendix requires that the Agency publish two notices in the Federal Register in processing an application. In the first notice, OSHA announces the application and provides its preliminary finding. In the second notice, the Agency provides its final decision on the application. These notices set forth the NRTL’s scope of recognition or modifications of that scope. OSHA E:\FR\FM\01JNN1.SGM 01JNN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks approval under the PRA for 
revisions to the Periodic Medical Surveillance Examinations for Coal 
Miners information collection requirements codified in regulations 30 
CFR 72.100(d) and (e). More specifically, this ICR covers requirements 
for each mine operator to develop and submit for approval for National 
Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) a plan in 
accordance with 42 CFR part 37 for providing miners with the required 
periodic examinations specified in 30 CFR 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). This information collection 
has been classified as a revision, because the agency has previously 
incorporated added information collection requirements also covered by 
this collection, including the associated burdens, to other approved 
information collections. In order not to double count those burdens, 
this collection would now drop those requirements from this collection. 
Federal Mine Safety and Health Act of 1977 sections 101(a) and 103(h) 
authorize this information collection. See 30 U.S.C. 811(a), 813(h).
    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 1219-0152. 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 March 14, 2017 (82 FR 13658).
    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. In order to help ensure appropriate 
consideration, comments should mention OMB Control Number 1219-0152. 
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 
those who are to respond, including through the
