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 Curtis-Strauss LLC (CSL) as a NRTL. CSL’s expansion covers the addition of five test standards to its scope of recognition. OSHA recognition of a 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 41993 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. CSL submitted an application, dated December 30, 2016, (OSHA–2009–0026– 0073) to expand its recognition to include five additional test standards. OSHA staff performed a comparability analysis of the application packet and reviewed other pertinent information. OSHA did not perform any on-site reviews in relation to this application. OSHA published the preliminary notice announcing CSL’s expansion application in the Federal Register on June 21, 2017 (82 FR 28356). The Agency requested comments by July 6, 2017, but it received no comments in response to this notice. OSHA now is proceeding with this final notice to grant expansion of CSL’s scope of recognition. To obtain or review copies of all public documents pertaining to CSL’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–2009–0026 contains all materials in the record concerning CSL’s recognition. II. Final Decision and Order OSHA staff examined CSL’s expansion application, its capability to meet the requirements of the test standards, and other pertinent information. Based on its review of this evidence, OSHA finds that CSL 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 CSL’s scope of recognition. OSHA limits the expansion of CSL’s recognition to testing and certification of products for demonstration of conformance to the test standards listed in Table 1 below.

Consequently, if a test standard also covers any products for which OSHA does not require such testing and certification, a NRTL’s scope of recognition does not include these products. 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, CSL must abide by the following conditions of the recognition: 1. CSL 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. CSL must meet all the terms of its recognition and comply with all OSHA policies pertaining to this recognition; and 3. CSL must continue to meet the requirements for recognition, including all previously published conditions on CSL’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 CSL, subject to the limitation and conditions specified above. mstockstill on DSK30JT082PROD with NOTICES III.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Notice of Final Decision

    OSHA hereby gives notice of the expansion of the scope of 
recognition of Curtis-Strauss LLC (CSL) as a NRTL. CSL's expansion 
covers the addition of five test standards to its scope of recognition.
    OSHA recognition of a 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.
    CSL submitted an application, dated December 30, 2016, (OSHA-2009-
0026-0073) to expand its recognition to include five additional test 
standards. OSHA staff performed a comparability analysis of the 
application packet and reviewed other pertinent information. OSHA did 
not perform any on-site reviews in relation to this application.
    OSHA published the preliminary notice announcing CSL's expansion 
application in the Federal Register on June 21, 2017 (82 FR 28356). The 
Agency requested comments by July 6, 2017, but it received no comments 
in response to this notice. OSHA now is proceeding with this final 
notice to grant expansion of CSL's scope of recognition.
    To obtain or review copies of all public documents pertaining to 
CSL'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-2009-0026 contains all materials in the record 
concerning CSL's recognition.

II. Final Decision and Order

    OSHA staff examined CSL's expansion application, its capability to 
meet the requirements of the test standards, and other pertinent 
information. Based on its review of this evidence, OSHA finds that CSL 
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 CSL's 
scope of recognition. OSHA limits the expansion of CSL's recognition to 
testing and certification of products for demonstration of conformance 
to the test standards listed in Table 1 below.

[[Page 41994]]

    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, a 
NRTL's scope of recognition does not include these products.
    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, 
CSL must abide by the following conditions of the recognition:
    1. CSL 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. CSL must meet all the terms of its recognition and comply with 
all OSHA policies pertaining to this recognition; and
    3. CSL must continue to meet the requirements for recognition, 
including all previously published conditions on CSL'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 CSL, subject to the limitation and conditions 
specified above.

III. Authority and Signature

    Loren Sweatt, Deputy Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational 
Safety and Health, authorized the preparation of this notice. 
Accordingly, the Agency is issuing this notice pursuant to 29 U.S.C. 
657(g)(2), Secretary of Labor's Order No. 1-2012 (77 FR 3912, Jan. 25, 
2012), and 29 CFR 1910.7.
