OSHA has reviewed information and documents pertaining to SDoC and met with ITIC and a few interested parties who provided some input on SDoC and their view of its advantages and disadvantages. Documents we have gathered to date, including the ITIC proposal, are available at the OSHA Docket Office. In general, these documents are available through the OSHA Web site at http:// dockets.osha.gov. After reviewing ITIC’s proposal, OSHA has decided that it needs to learn more about SDoC and the assurances behind them. Accordingly, this request is designed to obtain that information. III. Questions on Which Comment Is Requested OSHA is seeking information, data, and comment on SDoC generally, and the ITIC proposal specifically. OSHA is providing broad questions below to provide a framework for the public to respond to this RFI. However, you can provide comment or information on any aspect of the broad areas mentioned below and not just limit your answers to the specific questions posed. In responding to these questions, please explain the reasons supporting your views, and identify and provide relevant information on which you rely, including data, studies, articles, and other materials. Respondents are encouraged to address any aspect of the issue on which they believe they can contribute. Please briefly identify your background or qualification on the topic on which you are responding, where relevant. SDoC Process Note: Questions 1 through 7 pertain to regulatory or product approval systems that currently allow SDoCs. 1. What quality controls and procedures do equipment manufacturers/suppliers now follow to effectively perform, document, and issue SDoCs for their products? 2. What kinds of problems do product manufacturers and product users now encounter with their SDoCs and how are they resolved or addressed? 3. What kinds of products are now approved or not approved using SDoCs, and why? 4. Is there any reduction in the ‘‘timeto-market’’ for products? If so, how much of a reduction is there, how much is due to improvements in product VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:50 Nov 14, 2005 Jkt 208001 69359 safety, and what is the savings in costs to the manufacturer if SDoC is used instead of a third-party approval? 5. Do third-party product certifiers currently use SDoCs in approving products or play a role in issuing SDoCs, and if so how? 6. What kinds of testing and testing capabilities are required for using SDoCs? 7. Have there been any incidents involving ‘‘unapproved’’ IT equipment, or IT equipment approved through SDoC, creating hazards? products, and to handle complaints and product recalls? 14. Are there ways in which OSHA could incorporate the SDoC into its current process of NRTL approvals? SDoC Proposal 8. What has changed with respect to IT equipment in the 17 years since OSHA adopted the NRTL Program that could warrant a reconsideration of the third-party testing criterion? 9. Should OSHA consider allowing SDoC in the approval process for IT equipment, and if so, to what extent? If allowed, what restrictions, safeguards, or other requirements would be necessary to provide employers, employees, and OSHA with equivalent assurances of safety to that currently provided by NRTL testing and certification? Should OSHA require manufacturers performing SDoCs to meet all the requirements of an NRTL except independence? How, specifically, should OSHA evaluate the effects on worker safety of SDoCs versus NRTL approvals? 10. If OSHA were to adopt SDoC, should OSHA limit its use to computers, computer peripherals, and telecommunications equipment only, as suggested by ITIC, or to all IT equipment, as defined by the relevant U.S. test standard, or restrict its use to low voltage (for example, 50 volts or less) IT equipment or components? In the alternative, should OSHA allow its use for other types of equipment? If so, what criteria, requirements, or data should OSHA use to determine the types of products or components eligible for SDoCs? What types of equipment would not be suitable for SDoC? 11. What advantages or benefit would workers, employers, or OSHA derive if OSHA were to allow SDoC? What disadvantages or detriments would result? What other groups or parties would consider it beneficial or damaging, and how? 12. If allowed, should OSHA limit the use of SDoCs to particular kinds of manufacturers and, if so, what would be the selection criteria? 13. If OSHA were to adopt some form of SDoC, what kind of mechanisms would be necessary to ensure effective monitoring of manufacturers and Authority and Signature This document was prepared under the direction of Jonathan L.
