Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technical Advisory Committee (HTAC), 18578 [2013-07026]

Download as PDF mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 18578 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 59 / Wednesday, March 27, 2013 / Notices The combustion safety procedure in the BPI–1100–2012 standard is the most applicable to the work performed by the WAP. This method was retained in the SWS. If a suitable replacement becomes ANSI-approved it may be appropriate to modify the reference. 2. Air Sealing a. Reference Standards: DOE received comments from ACCA, RSES and AHRI requesting that references be cited for action levels, as well as the addition of industry standards along with current citations to the International Residential Code. These comments are available at regulations.gov under Docket ID: EERE– 2012–WE–0042. In reviewing the comments, it was apparent that the content required additional referencing that was also easily searchable in order to improve the comprehensiveness and usability of the SWS. Therefore, a crossreference document was developed to allow for users to identify referenced standards for individual specification lines that is included as an Appendix to the SWS titled ‘‘Appendix C: Guide to Referenced Standards’’. 3. International Residential Code (IRC) a. DOE received comments from ACCA and RSES, indicating the citation of specific sections of the 2012 IRC was not necessary. These comments are available at regulations.gov under Docket ID: EERE–2012–WE–0042. The comments identified that code sections are often revised and it would be better to cite ‘‘2012 IRC’’ versus a specific section. DOE acknowledges that code references are revised, however one of the goals of the SWS was to allow users to identify and find referenced information easily without having to purchase or search through numerous pages of referenced text. Due to the size of the IRC, it was apparent that referencing a specific section allowed the user to efficiently identify the section to refer to and be able to apply that knowledge quickly to the task. Therefore, citation of specific sections of the 2012 IRC remain in the SWS. 4. Licensed Professionals a. DOE received comments from PHCC indicating that certain tasks should be carried out by individuals licensed in a particular trade. These comments are available at regulations.gov under Docket ID: EERE– 2012–WE–0042. DOE agrees that the use of licensed professionals to perform certain tasks is an important component of maintaining work quality and safety. Given the wide range of licensure and credentialing requirements across the country, DOE made the decision to include a notification at the beginning of each detail in the SWS to alert the VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:10 Mar 26, 2013 Jkt 229001 reader that the detail may contain a task requiring a licensed or credentialed contractor. This is intended to ensure that the reader is aware of the possibility of the need for a licensed or credentialed professional and to encourage them to verify this with the authority having jurisdiction. A full comment report with responses to each comment received as well as revisions made to the content of the SWS can be found at: http:// nrel.pnnl.gov/forum.php Issued in Washington, DC, on March 5, 2013.
