RIN: 1219-AB67

Publication ID: Fall 2010

Title: Notification of Legal Identity

Abstract: The current requirements do not provide sufficient information for MSHA to identify all of the mine "operators" responsible for operator safety and health obligations under the Federal Mine Safety and Health Act of 1977, as amended. This proposed regulation would expand the information required to be submitted to MSHA and allow the Agency to better focus on the most egregious or persistent violators and more effectively deter future violations by imposing penalties and other remedies on those violators.
