DOL/MSHA RIN: 1219-AB67 Publication ID: Fall 2009
Title: Notification of Legal Identity
Abstract: Currently required information does 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 new regulation would expand the information required to be submitted to MSHA and allow the Agency to better target the most egregious and persistent violators and more effectively deter future violations by imposing penalties and other remedies on those violators.
