30 CFR Part 3

OMB Control Numbers Under the Paperwork Reduction Act

AGENCY: Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA), Labor.

ACTION: Final rule; technical amendment.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This technical amendment updates MSHA's listing of Office of Management and Budget (OMB) control numbers for the Agency's standards and regulations. MSHA is prohibited from conducting a collection of information unless the Agency displays a currently valid OMB control number. This consolidated listing assists the public in searching for current MSHA standards and regulations that include information collection, recordkeeping, and reporting requirements approved by OMB under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995.

EFFECTIVE DATE: June 29, 2007.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Patricia W. Silvey, Director; Office of Standards, Regulations, and Variances, MSHA at silvey.patricia@dol.gov (E-mail); 202-693-9440 (Voice); 202-693-9441 (Facsimile).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: MSHA first consolidated the listing of OMB control numbers in a final rule published on June 29, 1995 (60 FR 33719). This action codified the OMB control numbers for MSHA standards and regulations in one location to assist the public in quickly determining whether OMB has approved a specific information collection requirement. Table 1 in 30 CFR 3.1 displays the OMB control number for each section containing a requirement for the collection, reporting, recordkeeping, or dissemination of information.
    MSHA is prohibited from conducting a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number and informs potential responders that they are not required to respond unless the collection of information displays a currently valid OMB control number. By publishing this list, MSHA is following the recommendation of OMB pursuant to 5 CFR 1320.3(f)(3) and 1320.5(b)(2)(ii)(C) that, even where an agency has already provided the above information ``in a manner reasonably calculated to inform the public,'' the agency should also ``publish such information along with a table or codified section of OMB control numbers to be included in the Code of Federal Regulations.''
    This revision updates MSHA's current list of OMB control numbers to include new control numbers approved by OMB for standards and regulations completed since the last update and any changes made through the renewal of previously issued OMB control numbers.
    Information collection requirements go through the public review process, including notice and comment, as part of the rule to which they apply. Likewise, the renewal of an OMB control number also requires public review. As a result, MSHA finds that it is unnecessary to have further public notice and comment and that, therefore, there is ``good cause'' under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B) of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA) to issue this technical amendment to Table 1 in 30 CFR part 3 without prior public notice and comment.
    MSHA also determined that it is unnecessary to delay the effective date. This technical amendment contains no new requirements for which the public would need time to plan compliance, beyond that provided for in the regulation itself. MSHA finds, therefore, that there is ``good cause'' to except this action from the 30-day delayed effective date requirement under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3) of the APA.
