Proposed Information Collection Request Submitted for Public Comment and Recommendations; Mine Operator Dust Cards
The Department of Labor, as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden conducts a pre-clearance consultation program to provide the general public and Federal agencies with an opportunity to comment on proposed and/or continuing collections of information in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA95) [44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(c)(A)]. This program helps to ensure that requested data can be provided in the desired format, reporting burden (time and financial resources) is minimized, collection instruments are clearly understood, and the impact of collection requirements on respondents can be properly assessed. Currently, the Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) is soliciting comments concerning the extension of the information collection related to the 30 CFR Sections 70.209, 71.209, and 90.209 Mine Operator Dust Data Card; 70.201(c), 71.201(c), 90.201(c) Reporting Operator Sampling Dates; 70.202(b), 71.202(b), and 90.202(b)Dust Sampling Certification; 70.220(a), 71.220(a), and 90.220(a)Reporting Status Changes; and 71.300, 71.301(d),90.300, and 90.301(d)Respirable Dust Control Plan.
