2098. FIELD MODIFICATIONS OF PERMISSIBLE MOBILE DIESEL-POWERED EQUIPMENT

Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant

Legal Authority: 30 USC 957; 30 USC 961

CFR Citation: 30 CFR 36

Legal Deadline: None

Abstract: We are considering adding field modification requirements to part 36 - approval requirements for permissible mobile diesel-powered transportation equipment. The implementation of diesel regulations in 30 CFR parts 7, 36, 57, 72 and 75 has resulted in an increase in requests from owners of approved equipment, typically Mine operators, to use modified permissible diesel-powered equipment, including mobile diesel-powered transportation equipment. These modifications allow permissible equipment to be modified for Mine-specific use or to comply with existing diesel standards.
