Authority: 44 U.S.C. 3507(a)(1)(D). This ICR seeks to extend PRA authority for the Respirator Program Records information collection requirements contained in regulations 30 CFR 56.5005 and 57– 5005, which provide that, generally, whenever respiratory equipment is used, the metal or nonmetal mine operator must institute a respirator program governing selection, maintenance, training, fitting, supervision, cleaning, and use of respirators. These regulations seek to control miner exposure to harmful airborne contaminants by using engineering controls to prevent contamination and to vent or to dilute any contaminated air. The regulations include information collections related to the development of a respirator program that addresses the selection, use, and care of respirators; fit-testing records used to ensure that a respirator worn by an individual is the same brand, model, and size respirator that was worn when that individual successfully passed a fit-test; and records kept of inspection dates and findings for respirators maintained for emergency use. The mine operator uses the information to issue proper respiratory protection to miners when feasible engineering and/or administrative controls do not reduce miners’ exposures to permissible levels.

    Authority: 44 U.S.C. 3507(a)(1)(D).


SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks to extend PRA authority for 
the Respirator Program Records information collection requirements 
contained in regulations 30 CFR 56.5005 and 57-5005, which provide 
that, generally, whenever respiratory equipment is used, the metal or 
nonmetal mine operator must institute a respirator program governing 
selection, maintenance, training, fitting, supervision, cleaning, and 
use of respirators. These regulations seek to control miner exposure to 
harmful airborne contaminants by using engineering controls to prevent 
contamination and to vent or to dilute any contaminated air. The 
regulations include information collections related to the development 
of a respirator program that addresses the selection, use, and care of 
respirators; fit-testing records used to ensure that a respirator worn 
by an individual is the same brand, model, and size respirator that was 
worn when that individual successfully passed a fit-test; and records 
kept of inspection dates and findings for respirators maintained for 
emergency use. The mine operator uses the information to issue proper 
respiratory protection to miners when feasible engineering and/or 
administrative controls do not reduce miners' exposures to permissible 
levels. The MSHA uses the information to determine compliance with the 
standard. Mine Safety and Health Act of 1977 section 103(h) authorizes 
this information collection. See 30 U.S.C. 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 1219-0048.
    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 July 31, 2017. The DOL seeks to extend PRA 
authorization for this information collection for three (3) more years, 
without any change to existing requirements. The DOL notes that 
existing information collection requirements submitted to the OMB 
receive a month-to-month extension while they undergo review. For 
additional substantive information about this ICR, see the related 
notice published in the Federal Register on March 7, 2017 (43 FR 
12855).
    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 1219-0048. 
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

technological collection techniques or other forms of information 
technology, e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses.
