ACTION: Notice. Bureau of Labor Statistics VerDate Aug<31>2005 Occupational Safety and Health Administration Jkt 214001 SUMMARY: This notice announces the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s final decision expanding the recognition of Intertek Testing Services NA, Inc., (ITSNA) as a Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory under 29 CFR 1910.7. DATES: The expansion of recognition becomes effective on August 29, 2008. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: MaryAnn Garrahan, Director, Office of Technical Programs and Coordination Activities, NRTL Program, Occupational Safety and Health Administration, U.S. Department of Labor, 200 Constitution Avenue, NW., Room N–3655, Washington, DC 20210, or phone (202) 693–2110. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Notice of Final Decision The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) hereby gives notice that it is expanding recognition of Intertek Testing Services NA, Inc., (ITSNA) as a Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL). ITSNA’s PO 00000 Frm 00082 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 expansion covers the use of additional test standards. OSHA’s current scope of recognition for ITSNA may be found in the following informational Web page: http://www.osha.gov/dts/otpca/nrtl/ its.html. OSHA recognition of an NRTL signifies that the organization has met the legal requirements in Section 1910.7 of Title 29, Code of Federal Regulations (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 approved by the NRTL to meet OSHA standards that require testing and certification. The Agency processes applications by an 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 can be accessed from the Web site at http:// www.osha.gov/dts/otpca/nrtl/ index.html. In an earlier action involving ITSNA, OSHA issued a Federal Register notice modifying its recognition, along with the recognition of other NRTLs, by replacing or deleting test standards that standards-developing organizations previously revised or withdrew (70 FR 11273, March 8, 2005). In a subsequent Federal Register notice, OSHA granted ITSNA’s most recent application, which was for an expansion of recognition (68 FR 62479, November 4, 2003). ITSNA submitted an application, dated August 25, 2005, (see Exhibit 48– 1, as cited in the preliminary notice) to expand its recognition to include 56 additional test standards. One standard, however, is already included in ITSNA’s scope and another has been withdrawn by the standards-developing organization. The NRTL Program staff has determined that the remaining 54 standards are ‘‘appropriate test standards’’ within the meaning of 29 CFR 1910.7(c). In connection with the expansion, OSHA staff performed an onsite visit of the NRTL’s Cortland site E:\FR\FM\29AUN1.SGM 29AUN1
