This PIL provides instruction for enforcement personnel on accumulation of combustible materials and rock dust. An Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS) for Maintenance of Incombustible Content of Rock Dust was published on September 23, 2010. The ETS was effective upon publication. Each mine operator must comply with the ETS by October 7, 2010, for newly mined areas, and November 22, 2010, for all other areas of the mine. This PIL provides instruction for enforcement personnel for implementing this ETS and taking spot rock dust samples.
