ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: This notice announces the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s final decision expanding the recognition of the Canadian Standards Association as a Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory under 29 CFR 1910.7. DATES: The expansion of recognition becomes effective on October 25, 2010. 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: SUMMARY: Notice of Final Decision The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) hereby gives notice that it is expanding recognition of the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) as a Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL). CSA’s expansion covers the use of additional test standards. OSHA’s current scope of recognition for CSA may be found in the following informational Web page: http://www.osha.gov/dts/otpca/nrtl/ csa.html. OSHA recognition of an NRTL signifies that the organization has met the legal requirements specified in 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 PO 00000 Frm 00072 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 65517 government authority. As a result of recognition, employers may use products approved by the NRTL to meet OSHA standards that require product 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 are available from the Web site at http:// www.osha.gov/dts/otpca/nrtl/ index.html. Each NRTL’s scope of recognition has three elements: (1) The type of products the NRTL may test, with each type specified by its applicable test standard; (2) the recognized site(s) that has/have the technical capability to perform the testing and certification activities for test standards within the NRTL’s scope; and (3) the supplemental program(s) that the NRTL may use, each of which allows the NRTL to rely on other parties to perform activities necessary for product testing and certification. CSA submitted an application, dated June 25, 2008, to expand its recognition to include five additional test standards. The NRTL Program staff determined that four of these standards (listed below) are ‘‘appropriate test standards’’ within the meaning of 29 CFR 1910.7(c). In connection with this request, NRTL Program staff did not perform any onsite review of CSA’s recognized sites. The staff only performed a comparability analysis,1 and recommended expansion of CSA’s recognition to include the additional four test standards listed below. The Agency subsequently accepted this recommendation, and published a preliminary notice announcing the expansion application in the Federal Register on April 26, 2010 (75 FR 21666). Comments were requested by May 11, 2010, but OSHA received no comments in response to this notice. OSHA is now proceeding 1 This analysis involves determining whether the testing and evaluation requirements of test standards already in an NRTL’s scope are comparable to the requirements in the standards requested by the NRTL.

Western Digital Technologies, Inc., Corporate Headquarters/Hard 
Drive Development Division, Lake Forest, CA; Notice of Affirmative 
Determination Regarding Application for Reconsideration

    By application dated September 14, 2010, workers requested 
administrative reconsideration of the negative determination regarding 
workers' eligibility to apply for Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) 
applicable to workers and former workers of the subject firm. The 
Department's Notice of negative determination was issued on August 5, 
2010 and published in the Federal Register on August 23, 2010 (75 FR 
51849). The workers are engaged in activity related to the supply of 
engineering services.
    The negative determination was based on the findings that the 
subject firm did not increase imports services supplied by the worker's 
firm and that there has not been a shift to a foreign country in the 
supply of services by the subject firm. The investigation also revealed 
that the subject firm does not supply a service that was directly used 
in the production of an article by a firm that employed a worker group 
eligible to apply for TAA.
    The request for reconsideration alleges that increased imports of 
articles (disk drives) that were produced directly using the services 
supplied by the subject workers (engineering) contributed importantly 
to separations at the subject firm.
    The Department has carefully reviewed the request for 
reconsideration and the existing record, and has determined that the 
Department will conduct further investigation to determine if the 
workers meet the eligibility requirements of the Trade Act of 1974, as 
amended.

Conclusion

    After careful review of the application, I conclude that the claim 
is of sufficient weight to justify reconsideration of the U.S. 
Department of Labor's prior decision. The application is, therefore, 
granted.

    Signed at Washington, DC, this 7th day of October 2010.
