MSHA regulations at 30 CFR parts 6 through 36 contain application, testing and inspection procedures, and quality control procedures for the approval of mining equipment or explosives used in both underground and surface coal, metal, and nonmetal mines. Except for parts 6 and 7, MSHA conducts most of the testing and evaluation of products for a fee paid by the applicant; although some regulations require the manufacturer to pretest the product. Upon MSHA approval, the manufacturer must ensure that the product continues to conform to the specifications and design evaluated and approved by MSHA. In some instances, as part of the approval process, manufacturers are required to have a quality control or assurance plan.

There was a slight decrease in respondents (139 to 130). There was an increase in 226 burden hours (from 3,198 to 3,424) as well as an increase in 19 responses (from 296 to 316). Burden costs increased as well by $1,206,410 (from $1,732,147 to $2,938,557). The driver behind much of this is an increase in the number of applications for non-permissible engines Part 7 subpart E. In the previous package there were 6 applications for approval for non-permissible engines, and there are now 30, which increased responses and therefore burden hours. Also the MSHA charge increased from $121 to $137 per hour to evaluate applications for approval and non-permissible engine applications undergo 3 tests: maximum fuel/air ratio test, gaseous ventilation test, and a particulate index test, costing a total of $30,000 per application. This accounts for $900,000 of the cost for Part 7 Subpart E.
