SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks to extend PRA authority for the Proximity Detection Systems for Continuous Mining Machines in Underground Coal Mines information collection requirements codified in regulations 30 CFR 1732(d). This information collection relates to requirements for mine operators to install proximity detection systems on continuous mining machines. More specifically, the subject regulatory provisions require: the proper certification (initialing and dating— including time) by a qualified individual that the machine-mounted components of the proximity detection system have been checked (§ 75.1732(d)(1)); recording, before the end of the shift, any defects found as a result of the check—including corrective actions and their dates (Id.); the operator recording any defects found as a result of the checks of minerwearable components required under section § 75.1732(c)(2), including corrective actions and dates of corrective actions (§ 75.1732(d)(2); the operator creating a record of persons trained in the installation and maintenance of proximity detection systems under § 75.1732(b)(6) (§ 75.1732(d)(3)); the operator maintaining records in a secure book or electronically in a secure computer system not susceptible to alteration (§ 75.1732(d)(4)); the operator retaining records for at least one year and making them available for inspection by authorized representatives of the Secretary and representatives of miners (§ 75.1732(d)(5). Federal Mine Safety and Health Act of 1977 sections 101 and 103(h) authorize this information collection. See 30 U.S.C. 811, 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 VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:30 Mar 27, 2018 Jkt 244001 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 1219–0148. 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 April 30, 2018. 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 November 24, 2017 (82 FR 55879).
