Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) section 701(f)(3)(B)(i)(I), Public Health Service Act section 2701(f)(3)(B)(i)(I), and Internal Revenue Code section 9801(f)(3)(B)(i)(I) require an employer maintaining a group health plan in a State that provides medical assistance under a State Medicaid plan under Social Security Act (SSA) title XIX or child health assistance under a State child health plan under SSA title XXI in the form of premium assistance for the purchase of coverage under a group health plan to make certain disclosures. Specifically, the employer is required to notify each employee of potential opportunities currently available in the State in which the employee resides for premium assistance under Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) for health coverage of the employee or the employee’s dependents. ERISA section 701(f)(3)(B)(i)(II) requires the DOL to provide employers with model language for the CHIP notice. The model includes information on how an employee may contact the State in which the employee resides for additional information regarding potential opportunities for premium assistance, including how to apply for such assistance. This information collection is subject to the PRA. A Federal agency generally cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information, and the public is generally not required to respond to an information collection, unless it is approved by the OMB under the PRA and displays a currently valid OMB Control Number. In addition, notwithstanding any other provisions of law, no person shall generally be subject to penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information that does not display a valid Control Number. See 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and 1320.6. The DOL obtains OMB approval for this information collection under Control Number 1210–0137. OMB authorization for an ICR cannot be for more than three (3) years without renewal, and the current approval for this collection is scheduled to expire on September 30, 2013. The DOL seeks to extend PRA authorization for this information collection for three (3) more years, without any change to existing requirements. It should also be noted that existing information collection requirements submitted to the OMB receive a month-to-month extension while they undergo review.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES I. Background The Department of Labor, as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, conducts a preclearance consultation program to provide the public with an opportunity to comment on continuing information collection requirements in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA–95) (44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)). This program ensures that information is in the desired format, reporting burden (time and costs) is minimal, collection instruments are clearly understood, and OSHA’s estimate of the information collection burden is accurate. The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (the OSH Act) (29 U.S.C. 651 et seq.) authorizes information collection from employers as necessary or appropriate for enforcement of the OSH Act or for developing information regarding the causes and prevention of occupational injuries, illnesses, and accidents (29 U.S.C. 657). The OSH Act also requires OSHA to obtain such information with minimum burden upon employers, especially those operating small businesses, and to reduce to the maximum extent feasible VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:48 Oct 01, 2013 Jkt 232001 unnecessary duplication of efforts in obtaining information (29 U.S.C. 657). A number of standards issued by OSHA contain requirements that specify employers use only equipment, products, or material tested or approved by a nationally recognized testing laboratory (NRTL). These requirements ensure that employers use safe and efficacious equipment, products, or materials in complying with the standards. Accordingly, OSHA promulgated the regulation 29 CFR 1910.7, ‘‘definition and requirements for a nationally recognized testing laboratory’’ (the Regulation). The Regulation specifies procedures that organizations must follow to apply for, and to maintain, OSHA’s recognition to test and certify equipment, products, or material for this purpose. II.

Proposed Actions OSHA proposes to revise and extend the Office of Management and Budget’s (OMB) approval of the collection of information requirements specified by the Regulation on the Definition and Requirements of a Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory. In addition to extending its current approval by OMB, the Agency proposes to include optional standardized forms to facilitate and simplify the information collection process as part of its information collection process. The optional forms correspond to the application, expansion, and renewal processes defined in the NRTL Program.

AGENCY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:48 Oct 01, 2013 Jkt 232001 This notice announces the grant of a permanent variance to Avalotis Corp., Bowen Engineering Corporation, Commonwealth Dynamics, Inc., Gibraltar Chimney International, LLC, Hamon Custodis, Inc., Hoffmann, Inc., International Chimney Corporation, Karrena International Chimney, Kiewit Power Constructors Co., Matrix SME, Inc., NAES Power Contractors, Pullman Power, LLC, R and P Industrial Chimney Co., Inc., T. E. Ibberson Company, TIC—The Industrial Company (‘‘the employers’’). From 1973 to the present, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA or the Agency) granted permanent variances to a number of chimneyconstruction companies from the provisions of the OSHA standards that regulate boatswain’s chairs and hoist towers, specifically paragraph (o)(3) of 29 CFR 1926.452 and paragraphs (c)(1) through (c)(4), (c)(8), (c)(13), (c)(14)(i), and (c)(16) of 29 CFR 1926.552. These variances use temporary personnel hoist systems to transport workers to and from worksites in a personnel cage while constructing chimneys of various configurations using jump-form construction techniques and procedures. The Agency received applications from 15 employers for a variance addressing chimney and chimney-related construction that, like the previous variances, propose to use temporary personnel hoist systems to transport workers to and from worksites in a personnel cage. These variance applications, however, included conditions that address construction of chimneys and chimney-related structures using temporary hoist systems and procedures in association with two different methods of construction (i.e., jump-form and slipform construction), regardless of the structures’ configurations (i.e., tapered or straight-barreled of any diameter). OSHA consolidated these variance applications into a single application and published the application and request for comments in the Federal Register on March 21, 2013 (78 FR 17432). After considering the record as a whole, OSHA finds that these alternative conditions protect workers at least as well as the requirements specified by 29 CFR 1926.452(o)(3) and 29 CFR 1926.552(c)(1) through (c)(4), (c)(8), (c)(13), (c)(14)(i), and (c)(16). This permanent variance applies in Federal OSHA enforcement jurisdictions and in those states and territories with OSHAapproved State-Plans covering privatesector employers that have identical SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00085 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 standards and agree to the terms of the variance.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    The Department of Labor, as part of its continuing effort to reduce 
paperwork and respondent burden, conducts a preclearance consultation 
program to provide the public with an opportunity to comment on 
continuing information collection requirements in accordance with the 
Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA-95) (44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)). 
This program ensures that information is in the desired format, 
reporting burden (time and costs) is minimal, collection instruments 
are clearly understood, and OSHA's estimate of the information 
collection burden is accurate. The Occupational Safety and Health Act 
of 1970 (the OSH Act) (29 U.S.C. 651 et seq.) authorizes information 
collection from employers as necessary or appropriate for enforcement 
of the OSH Act or for developing information regarding the causes and 
prevention of occupational injuries, illnesses, and accidents (29 
U.S.C. 657). The OSH Act also requires OSHA to obtain such information 
with minimum burden upon employers, especially those operating small 
businesses, and to reduce to the maximum extent feasible unnecessary 
duplication of efforts in obtaining information (29 U.S.C. 657).
    A number of standards issued by OSHA contain requirements that 
specify employers use only equipment, products, or material tested or 
approved by a nationally recognized testing laboratory (NRTL). These 
requirements ensure that employers use safe and efficacious equipment, 
products, or materials in complying with the standards. Accordingly, 
OSHA promulgated the regulation 29 CFR 1910.7, ``definition and 
requirements for a nationally recognized testing laboratory'' (the 
Regulation). The Regulation specifies procedures that organizations 
must follow to apply for, and to maintain, OSHA's recognition to test 
and certify equipment, products, or material for this purpose.

II. Special Issues for Comment

    OSHA has a particular interest in comments on the following issues:
    1. Whether the proposed information collection requirements are 
necessary for the proper performance of the Agency's functions 
including whether is useful;
    2. The accuracy of OSHA's estimate of the burden (time and costs) 
of the information collection requirements, including the validity of 
the methodology and assumptions used;
    3. The quality, utility, and clarity of the information collected; 
and
    4. Ways to minimize the burden on organizations who must comply; 
for example, by using automated or other technological information 
collection and transmission techniques.

III. Proposed Actions

    OSHA proposes to revise and extend the Office of Management and 
Budget's (OMB) approval of the collection of information requirements 
specified by the Regulation on the Definition and Requirements of a 
Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory. In addition to extending its 
current approval by OMB, the Agency proposes to include optional 
standardized forms to facilitate and simplify the information 
collection process as part of its information collection process. The 
optional forms correspond to the application, expansion, and renewal 
processes defined in the NRTL Program. Where practicable, the forms 
will provide for automations such as drop down lists to increase ease 
of use and reduce the information collection burden. The Agency expects 
the use of the optional standardized forms to marginally reduce the 
burden hours associated with these information collection requirements. 
The Agency will summarize the comments submitted in response to this 
notice, and will include this summary in its request to OMB to extend 
and revise the approval of these information collection requirements.
    Type of Review: Revision of a currently approved collection.

Testing Laboratory (29 CFR 1910.7).
    OMB Control Number: 1218-0147.
