SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Notice of the Application for Expansion The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is providing notice that International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials EGS (IAPMO) is applying for expansion of its current VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:19 Mar 14, 2017 Jkt 241001 recognition as an NRTL. IAPMO requests the addition of four test standards to its NRTL scope of recognition. OSHA recognition of an NRTL signifies that the organization meets the requirements specified in 29 CFR 1910.7. Recognition is an acknowledgment that the organization can perform independent safety testing and certification of the specific products covered within its scope of recognition. Each NRTL’s scope of recognition includes (1) the type of products the NRTL may test, with each type specified by its applicable test standard; and (2) the recognized site(s) that has/have the technical capability to perform the product-testing and productcertification activities for test standards within the NRTL’s scope. Recognition is not a delegation or grant of government authority; however, recognition enables employers to use products approved by the NRTL to meet OSHA standards that require product testing and certification. The Agency processes applications by an NRTL for initial recognition and for an expansion or renewal of this recognition, following requirements in Appendix A to 29 CFR 1910.7. This appendix requires that the Agency publish two notices in the Federal Register in processing an application. In the first notice, OSHA announces the application and provides its preliminary finding. In the second notice, the Agency provides its final decision on the application. These notices set forth the NRTL’s scope of recognition or modifications of that scope. OSHA maintains an informational Web page for each NRTL, including IAPMO, which details the NRTL’s scope of recognition. These pages are available from the OSHA Web site at http:// www.osha.gov/dts/otpca/nrtl/ index.html.

A complete list of IAPMO’s scope of recognition is available at https:// www.osha.gov/dts/otpca/nrtl/ iapmo.html. II. General Background on the Application On January 12, 2016, IAPMO submitted an application to expand its recognition to include eight additional test standards (OSHA–2013–0030– 0006). OSHA staff performed a detailed analysis of the application packed and reviewed other pertinent information.

OSHA’s review of the application file, other pertinent documentation, and its detailed on-site assessment indicate that IAPMO can meet the requirements prescribed by 29 CFR 1910.7 for expanding its recognition to include the addition of these four test standards for NRTL testing and certification listed above. This preliminary finding does not constitute an interim or temporary approval of IAPMO’s application. OSHA welcomes public comment as to whether IAPMO meets the requirements of 29 CFR 1910.7 for expansion of its recognition as an NRTL. Comments should consist of pertinent written documents and exhibits. Commenters needing more time to comment must submit a request in writing, stating the reasons for the request.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Notice of the Application for Expansion

    The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is providing 
notice that International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical 
Officials EGS (IAPMO) is applying for expansion of its current 
recognition as an NRTL. IAPMO requests the addition of four test 
standards to its NRTL scope of recognition.
    OSHA recognition of an NRTL signifies that the organization meets 
the requirements specified in 29 CFR 1910.7. Recognition is an 
acknowledgment that the organization can perform independent safety 
testing and certification of the specific products covered within its 
scope of recognition. Each NRTL's scope of recognition includes (1) the 
type of products the NRTL may test, with each type specified by its 
applicable test standard; and (2) the recognized site(s) that has/have 
the technical capability to perform the product-testing and product-
certification activities for test standards within the NRTL's scope. 
Recognition is not a delegation or grant of government authority; 
however, recognition enables employers to use products approved by the 
NRTL to meet OSHA standards that require product testing and 
certification.
    The Agency processes applications by an NRTL for initial 
recognition and for an expansion or renewal of this recognition, 
following requirements in Appendix A to 29 CFR 1910.7. This appendix 
requires that the Agency publish two notices in the Federal Register in 
processing an application. In the first notice, OSHA announces the 
application and provides its preliminary finding. In the second notice, 
the Agency provides its final decision on the application. These 
notices set forth the NRTL's scope of recognition or modifications of 
that scope. OSHA maintains an informational Web page for each NRTL, 
including IAPMO, which details the NRTL's scope of recognition. These 
pages are available from the OSHA Web site at http://www.osha.gov/dts/otpca/nrtl/index.html.
    IAPMO currently has one facility (site) recognized by OSHA for 
product testing and certification, with its headquarters located at: 
International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials EGS, 
5001 East Philadelphia Street, Ontario, CA 91761. A complete list of 
IAPMO's scope of recognition is available at https://www.osha.gov/dts/otpca/nrtl/iapmo.html.

II. General Background on the Application

    On January 12, 2016, IAPMO submitted an application to expand its 
recognition to include eight additional test standards (OSHA-2013-0030-
0006). OSHA staff performed a detailed analysis of the application 
packed and reviewed other pertinent information. OSHA also performed an 
on-site review of IAPMO's testing facility on March 1-2, 2016, in which 
assessors found some nonconformances with the requirements of 29 CFR 
1910.7. IAPMO addressed these issues sufficiently, and OSHA staff 
preliminarily determined that OSHA should grant the application to 
expand IAPMO's recognition to include four of the eight requested 
standards.
    Table 1 below lists the appropriate test standards found in IAPMO's 
application for expansion for testing and certification of products 
under the NRTL Program.

III. Preliminary Findings on the Application

    IAPMO submitted an acceptable application for expansion of its 
scope of recognition. OSHA's review of the application file, other 
pertinent documentation, and its detailed on-site assessment indicate 
that IAPMO can meet the requirements prescribed by 29 CFR 1910.7 for 
expanding its recognition to include the addition of these four test 
standards for NRTL testing and certification listed above. This 
preliminary finding does not constitute an interim or temporary 
approval of IAPMO's application.
    OSHA welcomes public comment as to whether IAPMO meets the 
requirements of 29 CFR 1910.7 for expansion of its recognition as an 
NRTL. Comments should consist of pertinent written documents and 
exhibits. Commenters needing more time to comment must submit a request 
in writing, stating the reasons for the request. Commenters must submit 
the written request for an extension by the due date for comments. OSHA 
will limit any extension to 10 days unless the requester justifies a 
longer period. OSHA may deny a request for an extension if the request 
is not adequately justified. To obtain or review copies of the exhibits 
identified in this notice, as well as comments submitted to the docket,

comments, will recommend to the Assistant Secretary for Occupational 
Safety and Health whether to grant IAPMO's application for expansion of 
its scope of recognition. The Assistant Secretary will make the final 
decision on granting the application. In making this decision, the 
Assistant Secretary may undertake other proceedings prescribed in 
Appendix A to 29 CFR 1910.7.
