FOIA procedures apply to everyone who handles FOIA requests in MSHA. You must always keep a hard copy of the original FOIA request and any amendments to that request. Additionally, you should maintain the following information in your FOIA file:
- Copies of all documents that are withheld in full;
- Sanitized and unsanitized copies of documents that are being withheld in part; and
- Copies of documents that are being released in full.
