MET Laboratories, Inc.: Grant of Expansion of Recognition and Modification to the NRTL Program's List of Appropriate Test Standards, 16630-16632 [2017-06765]

Download as PDF 16630 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 64 / Wednesday, April 5, 2017 / Notices jstallworth on DSK7TPTVN1PROD with NOTICES OSHA’s estimate of the information collection burden is accurate. The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (the OSH Act) (29 U.S.C. 651 et seq.) authorizes information collection by employers as necessary or appropriate for enforcement of the OSH Act or for developing information regarding the causes and prevention of occupational injuries, illnesses, and accidents (29 U.S.C. 657). The OSH Act also requires OSHA to obtain such information with minimum burden upon employers, especially those operating small businesses, and to reduce to the maximum extent feasible unnecessary duplication of efforts in obtaining information (29 U.S.C. 657). The EtO Standard (29 CFR 1910.1047) specifies a number of paperwork requirements. The following is a brief description of the collection of information requirements contained in the standard. The information collection requirements specified in the Ethylene Oxide Standard protect workers from the adverse health effects that may result from occupational exposure to ethylene oxide. The principal information collection requirements in the EtO Standard include conducting worker exposure monitoring, notifying workers of the exposure, implementing a written compliance program, and implementing medical surveillance of workers. Also, the examining physician must provide specific information to ensure that workers receive a copy of their medical examination results. The employer must maintain exposuremonitoring and medical records for specific periods, and provide access to these records by OSHA, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, the affected workers, and their authorized representatives and other designated parties. II. Special Issues for Comment OSHA has a particular interest in comments on the following issues: • Whether the proposed information collection requirements are necessary for the proper performance of the Agency’s functions, including whether the information is useful; • The accuracy of OSHA’s estimate of the burden (time and costs) of the information collection requirements, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; • The quality, utility, and clarity of the information collected; and • Ways to minimize the burden on employers who must comply (for example, by using automated or other technological information collection and transmission techniques). VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:11 Apr 04, 2017 Jkt 241001 III. Proposed Actions OSHA is requesting that OMB extend its approval of the information collection requirements specified in the Ethylene Oxide Standard. The Agency is requesting an overall adjustment decrease of burden hours, from 35,051 to 27,880 burden hours. The decrease in burden hours is primarily due to a decrease in the number of establishments covered by the Standard. The Agency will summarize the comments submitted in response to this notice, and will include this summary in its request to OMB. Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection. Title: Ethylene Oxide (29 CFR 1910.1047). OMB Control Number: 1218–0108. Affected Public: Business or other forprofits. Number of Respondents: 1,869. Frequency of Response: Initially, annually; on occasion. Total Responses: 148,443. Average Time per Response: Various. Burden Hours: 27,880. Estimated Cost (Operation and Maintenance): $4,250,569.

OSHA’s Web page includes information about the NRTL Program (see http:// www.osha.gov/dts/otpca/nrtl/ index.html). SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Notice of Final Decision OSHA hereby gives notice of the expansion of the scope of recognition of MET Laboratories, Inc. (MET), as a NRTL. MET’s expansion covers the addition of five test standards to its scope of recognition, including one test standard that will be added to the NRTL List of Appropriate Test Standards. OSHA recognition of an NRTL signifies that the organization meets the requirements specified by 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 and is not a delegation or grant of government authority. As a result of recognition, employers may use products properly approved by the NRTL to meet OSHA standards that require testing and certification of the products. The Agency processes applications by a NRTL for initial recognition, or for 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 and, 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 that details its scope of recognition. These pages are available from the Agency’s Web site at http:// www.osha.gov/dts/otpca/nrtl/ index.html. MET submitted five applications, four dated July 7, 2015 (OSHA–2006–0028– 0026), (OSHA–2006–0028–0027), (OSHA–2006–0028–0028), (OSHA– 2006–0028–0029) and one dated August 4, 2015 (OSHA–2006–0028–0025), to expand its recognition to include five additional test standards. OSHA staff performed a comparability analysis and reviewed other pertinent information. OSHA did not perform any on-site reviews in relation to this application. 16631 OSHA published the preliminary notice announcing MET’s expansion application in the Federal Register on November 15, 2016 (81 FR 80089). The Agency requested comments by November 30, 2016, but it received no comments in response to this notice. OSHA now is proceeding with this final notice to grant expansion of MET’s scope of recognition. To obtain or review copies of all public documents pertaining to the MET’s application, go to www.regulations.gov or contact the Docket Office, Occupational Safety and Health Administration, U.S. Department of Labor, 200 Constitution Avenue NW., Room N–2625, Washington, DC 20210. Docket No. OSHA–2006–0028 contains all materials in the record concerning MET’s recognition. II. Final Decision and Order OSHA staff examined MET’s expansion applications, its capability to meet the requirements of the test standards, and other pertinent information. Based on its review of this evidence, OSHA finds that MET meets the requirements of 29 CFR 1910.7 for expansion of its recognition, subject to the limitation and conditions listed below. OSHA, therefore, is proceeding with this final notice to grant MET’s scope of recognition. OSHA limits the expansion of MET’s recognition to testing and certification of products for demonstration of conformance to the test standards listed in Table 1 below.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Notice of Final Decision

    OSHA hereby gives notice of the expansion of the scope of 
recognition of MET Laboratories, Inc. (MET), as a NRTL. MET's expansion 
covers the addition of five test standards to its scope of recognition, 
including one test standard that will be added to the NRTL List of 
Appropriate Test Standards.
    OSHA recognition of an NRTL signifies that the organization meets 
the requirements specified by 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 and is not a delegation or grant of government 
authority. As a result of recognition, employers may use products 
properly approved by the NRTL to meet OSHA standards that require 
testing and certification of the products.
    The Agency processes applications by a NRTL for initial 
recognition, or for 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 and, 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 that details its scope of recognition. These pages are 
available from the Agency's Web site at http://www.osha.gov/dts/otpca/nrtl/index.html.
    MET submitted five applications, four dated July 7, 2015 (OSHA-
2006-0028-0026), (OSHA-2006-0028-0027), (OSHA-2006-0028-0028), (OSHA-
2006-0028-0029) and one dated August 4, 2015 (OSHA-2006-0028-0025), to 
expand its recognition to include five additional test standards. OSHA 
staff performed a comparability analysis and reviewed other pertinent 
information. OSHA did not perform any on-site reviews in relation to 
this application.
    OSHA published the preliminary notice announcing MET's expansion 
application in the Federal Register on November 15, 2016 (81 FR 80089). 
The Agency requested comments by November 30, 2016, but it received no 
comments in response to this notice. OSHA now is proceeding with this 
final notice to grant expansion of MET's scope of recognition.
    To obtain or review copies of all public documents pertaining to 
the MET's application, go to www.regulations.gov or contact the Docket 
Office, Occupational Safety and Health Administration, U.S. Department 
of Labor, 200 Constitution Avenue NW., Room N-2625, Washington, DC 
20210. Docket No. OSHA-2006-0028 contains all materials in the record 
concerning MET's recognition.

II. Final Decision and Order

    OSHA staff examined MET's expansion applications, its capability to 
meet the requirements of the test standards, and other pertinent 
information. Based on its review of this evidence, OSHA finds that MET 
meets the requirements of 29 CFR 1910.7 for expansion of its 
recognition, subject to the limitation and conditions listed below. 
OSHA, therefore, is proceeding with this final notice to grant MET's 
scope of recognition. OSHA limits the expansion of MET's recognition to 
testing and certification of products for demonstration of conformance 
to the test standards listed in Table 1 below.

    OSHA's recognition of any NRTL for a particular test standard is 
limited to equipment or materials for which OSHA standards require 
third-party testing and certification before using them in the 
workplace. Consequently, if a test standard also covers any products 
for which OSHA does not require such testing and certification, an 
NRTL's scope of recognition does not include these products.

[[Page 16632]]

    The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) may approve the 
test standards listed above as American National Standards. However, 
for convenience, we may use the designation of the standards-developing 
organization for the standard as opposed to the ANSI designation. Under 
the NRTL Program's policy (see OSHA Instruction CPL 1-0.3, Appendix C, 
paragraph XIV), any NRTL recognized for a particular test standard may 
use either the proprietary version of the test standard or the ANSI 
version of that standard. Contact ANSI to determine whether a test 
standard is currently ANSI-approved.

A. Conditions

    In addition to those conditions already required by 29 CFR 1910.7, 
MET must abide by the following conditions of the recognition:
    1. MET must inform OSHA as soon as possible, in writing, of any 
change of ownership, facilities, or key personnel, and of any major 
change in its operations as a NRTL, and provide details of the 
change(s);
    2. MET must meet all the terms of its recognition and comply with 
all OSHA policies pertaining to this recognition; and
    3. MET must continue to meet the requirements for recognition, 
including all previously published conditions on MET's scope of 
recognition, in all areas for which it has recognition.
    Pursuant to the authority in 29 CFR 1910.7, OSHA hereby expands the 
scope of recognition of MET, subject to the limitation and conditions 
specified above.
