Asked Questions – Login & Security
does MSHA require registration before filing a form?
Department of Labor (DOL) now requires new security guidelines for all agency
websites that interact with public and industry users. The primary purpose of
registering is to provide MSHA and DOL with the ability to audit who is
actually providing filings online. While not widespread, requiring registration
allows MSHA to control abuse of online filing in certain circumstances as well
as provide you, the user, a certain level of protection by allowing MSHA to
make a reasonable determination of the authenticity of the filing.
do I register?
To register to use the online forms advisor click on any of the forms you wish
to file. You will be asked to login, click the link on the bottom of the page
for new users. The registration process has two steps; entering your
registration information and verifying your email address. All the fields on
the registration information screen are required. Make sure that the email
address you use to register with is valid and that you have access to that
email account. Once you complete your registration information click on the
“Register” button. A message will indicate that a verification email has been
sent to the email address entered in the previous page. The registration
process is not complete at this point. From the time you submit your
information you have 48 hours to complete the registration by following the
directions on the email that was sent to you. Once you receive the email you
will need to click on the link provided to finish the process. If clicking on
the link is not working you can copy and paste the link into your browser
window. Make sure you copy only the text that is between the < and >
symbols and not the symbols themselves. Once you navigate to the page that is
brought up by the link your registration is complete. You should then be able
to login to the system using the email address and password you entered.
used to file my 7000-2 without a login. Why do I need to register now?
old elaws filing system for the 7000-2 did not require registration. All that
was required was a valid Mine ID. However, the Department of Labor now requires
new security guidelines for all agency websites that interact with public and
industry users. Therefore, all users are now required to register first before
submitting a 7000-2. Please note that any email address you used for a previous
filing will not be valid as a login so you must first register before
completing the 7000-2. This is a one time registration process and your login
will remain valid for the next quarter’s filing.
