DOL/MSHA RIN: 1219-AB61 Publication ID: Fall 2009 
Title: Coal Mine Dust Personal Monitors 
Abstract: Existing 30 CFR part 74, specifies requirements for approval of coal mine dust personal sampler units designed to determine the concentrations of respirable coal dust in coal mine atmospheres; procedures for applying for such approval; tests procedures; and labeling. This rulemaking established new requirements that both the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) and Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) would use to approve coal mine dust personal samplers. The requirements would permit the approval of a new type of device, the "continuous personal dust monitor." It would also update design specifications for the coal mine dust personal sampler units to include improvements made to this device in the past 15 years. This rulemaking does not address the requirements in 30 CFR parts 70, 71, and 90 on the use of dust samplers.
