36MSHA Independent Contractor Identification Number. CFR 30, § 45.3 Identification of Independent Contractors, allows any contractor to obtain a permanent MSHA ID. MSHA's Program Policy Manual, Part 45 - General Enforcement Policy for Independent Contractors, provides more specific information regarding identification requirements. MSHA's policy holds independent contractors responsible for violations committed by the contractor or their employees or subcontractors. A MSHA identification number is only required if the independent contractor is cited for a violation or the independent contractor is performing one or more of the following types of services.1) Mine development, including shaft and slope sinking2) Construction or reconstruction on mine facilities, including building or rebuilding preparation plant and mining equipment, and building additions to existing facilities.3) Demolition of mine facilities4) Construction of dams5) Excavation or earthmoving activities involving mobile equipment6) Equipment installation, such as crushers and mills 7) Equipment service or repair of equipment on mine property for a period exceeding five consecutive days at a particular mine8) Material handling within mine property, including haulage of coal, ore, refuse, etc., unless for the sole purpose of direct removal from or delivery to mine property.9) Drilling and blasting. MSHA does not require an independent contractor to obtain an identification number during the pre-bid or bid process. An identification number shall be obtained prior to the start of any work if the independent contractor performs within any of the nine types of work described above. All independent contractors are held responsible for compliance with the Act, standards, regulations, rules and policies, regardless if they have an identification number.
