The Securities and Exchange Commission is deciding how much operators of coal mines and other types of mines must disclose when they report health and safety violations and mining-related fatalities, and it has requested comments by Jan. 31, 2011, to help it decide.

The agency proposed amendments to its rules implementing Section 1503 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, which requires operators, or those that have a subsidiary that is an operator, of a coal or other mine to disclose this in periodic reports filed with the commission, along with MSHA orders, citations, related assessments, and legal actions.

The affected SEC reports are Form 8-K, Form 10-K, Form 10-Q, Form 20-F, and Form 40-F. Comments should be sent via www.regulations.gov, via the SEC online comment form, or via e-mail to rule-comments@sec.gov. Include File Number S7-41-10 in the subject line.
