DATES: SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION I. Abstract The National Voluntary Conformity Assessment System Evaluation (NVCASE) Program is a voluntary program to evaluate organizations that carry out activities related to laboratory testing, product certification, and quality system registration. Any interested organizations provide information to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to support their conformance with established criteria for any of these activities. The information provided is used to conduct a NVCASE evaluation. Based on NVCASE evaluations, NIST provides recognition to qualified U.S. organizations. The ultimate goal is to help U.S. manufacturers satisfy applicable product requirements mandated by other countries through conformity assessment procedures conducted in this country prior to export. NVCASE recognition (1) provides other governments with a basis for having confidence that qualifying U.S. conformity assessment bodies (CABs) are competent, and (2) facilitates the acceptance of U.S. products in foreign-regulated markets based on U.S. conformity assessment results. The NVCASE recognition program facilitates U.S. trade with Europe, Asia and the Americas under government-togovernment agreements, and facilitates the flow of U.S. products to countries in those regions. II. Method of Collection Applicants submit written information to NIST. III. Data OMB Number: 0693–0019. Form Number(s): None. Type of Review: Regular submission.
