SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The information collection requirements in

Specifically, regulations 29 CFR 1910.22(d)(1) requires that in every 
building or other structure, or part thereof, used for mercantile, 
business, industrial, or storage purposes, the loads approved by the 
building official shall be marked on plates of approved design which 
shall be supplied and securely affixed by the owner of the building, or 
his duly authorized agent, in a conspicuous place in each space to 
which they relate. Such plates shall not be removed or defaced but, if 
lost, removed, or defaced, shall be replaced by the owner or his agent.
