Division of Compliance Management
What We Do:
The Division of Compliance Management (DCM) audits coal mining operations to determine if they are in compliance with Public Law 95-87, Section 402, and implementing Federal regulations reclamation fee requirements. Reclamation fees must be reported quarterly on Form OSMRE-1. The permittee/operator of a mine must maintain records and books for a period of at least six years from the end of the calendar quarter in which the fee was due or paid, whichever is later, and make these records available to the auditors. These books and records should be current and should substantiate the tonnages, moisture deductions, and fee calculations reported on the OSMRE-1 Form.
For more information regarding reclamation fees, please see the Payer Handbook at http://sscr.osmre.gov/OSM.aspx.
