TÜV SÜD America, Inc.: Request for Renewal of Recognition, 66072-66074 [2013-26284]

Download as PDF 66072 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 213 / Monday, November 4, 2013 / Notices McConnell.Sheila.A@dol.gov (email); 202–693–9440 (voice); or 202–693–9441 (facsimile). SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: TKELLEY on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES I. Background Section 103(h) of the Federal Mine Safety and Health Act of 1977 (Mine Act), 30 U.S.C. 813, authorizes MSHA to collect information necessary to carry out its duty in protecting the safety and health of miners. Title 30 CFR 77.1900 requires underground coal mine operators to submit for approval a plan that will provide for the safety of workmen in each slope or shaft that is commenced or extended from the surface to the underground coal mine. Each slope or shaft sinking operation is unique in that each operator uses different methods and equipment and encounters different geological strata which make it impossible for a single set of regulations to ensure the safety of the miners under all circumstances. This makes an individual slope or shaft sinking plan necessary. The plan must be consistent with prudent engineering design. Plans include the name and location of the mine; name and address of the mine operator; a description of the construction work and methods to be used in construction of the slope or shaft, and whether all or part of the work will be performed by a contractor; the elevation, depth and dimensions of the slope or shaft; the location and elevation of the coalbed; the general characteristics of the strata through which the slope or shaft will be developed; the type of equipment which the operator proposes to use; the system of ventilation to be used; and safeguards for the prevention of caving during excavation. II. Desired Focus of Comments MSHA is particularly interested in comments that: • Evaluate whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information has practical utility; • Evaluate the accuracy of the MSHA’s estimate of the burden of the collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; • Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and • Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:07 Nov 01, 2013 Jkt 232001 other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses. This information collection request is available on MSHA’s Web site listed in order of OMB number at http:// www.msha.gov/regs/fedreg/ informationcollection/ informationcollection.asp. The information collection request will be available on MSHA’s Web site for 60 days after the publication date of this notice, and on http:// www.regulations.gov. Because comments will not be edited to remove any identifying or contact information, MSHA cautions the commenter against including any information in the submission that should not be publicly disclosed. The public may also examine publicly available documents at MSHA, Office of Standards, Regulations, and Variances, 1100 Wilson Boulevard, Room 2350, Arlington VA 22209–3939 by signing in at the receptionist’s desk on the 21st floor. Questions about the information collection requirements may be directed to the person listed in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section of this notice. III. Current Actions This request for collection of information contains provisions for the Extension of the Information Collection Request Submitted for Public Comment and Recommendations; Slope and Shaft Sinking Plans, 30 CFR 77.1900. MSHA does not intend to publish the results from this information collection and is not seeking approval to not display the expiration date for the OMB approval of this information collection. There are no certification exceptions identified and this information collection and the collection of this information does not employ statistical methods.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    OSHA recognition of an NRTL signifies that the organization meets 
the requirements in Sec.  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 properly approved by the NRTL 
to meet OSHA standards that require testing and certification. OSHA 
maintains an informational Web site for each NRTL that details its 
scope of recognition. These pages are available on our Web site at 
http://www.osha.gov/dts/otpca/nrtl/index.html.
    The Agency processes applications by an NRTL for renewal of 
recognition following requirements in Appendix A to 29 CFR 1910.7. OSHA 
conducts renewals in accordance with the procedures in 29 CFR 1910.7, 
App. II.C. In accordance with these procedures, NRTLs would submit a 
renewal request to OSHA, not less than nine months, or no more than one 
year, before the expiration date of its current recognition. A renewal 
request would include a request for renewal and any additional 
information the NRTL wishes to submit to demonstrate its continued 
compliance with the terms of its recognition and 29 CFR 1910.7. If OSHA 
has not conducted an on-site assessment of the NRTL headquarters and 
any key sites within the past 18 months, it will schedule the necessary 
on-site assessments prior to the expiration date of the NRTL's 
recognition. Upon review of the submitted material and, as necessary, 
the successful completion of the on-site assessment, OSHA announces its 
preliminary decision to grant or deny renewal in the Federal Register 
and solicit comments from the public. OSHA then publishes a final 
Federal Register notice responding to any comments and renewing the 
NRTL's recognition for a period of five years, or denying the renewal 
of recognition.
    T[Uuml]V S[Uuml]D America, Inc. (TUVAM) initially received OSHA 
recognition as a NRTL on January 25, 2002 (65 FR 26637), for a five-
year period ending on January 25, 2007. TUVAM submitted a timely 
request for renewal, dated March 7, 2006 (see Exhibit 1), and retained 
its recognition pending OSHA's final decision in this renewal process. 
The current addresses of TUVAM facilities recognized by OSHA and 
included as part of the renewal request are:
    1. T[Uuml]V S[Uuml]D America, Inc. (TUVAM), 10 Technology Drive, 
Peabody, Massachusetts 01960;
    2. T[Uuml]V S[Uuml]D America, Inc., 10040 Mesa Rim Road, San Diego, 
California 92121; and
    3. T[Uuml]V S[Uuml]D America, Inc., 1775 Old Highway 8 NW., Suite 
104, New Brighton, Minnesota 55112.

II. Notice of Preliminary Findings

    OSHA is providing notice that TUVAM is applying for renewal of its 
current recognition as a NRTL. This renewal covers TUVAM's existing 
NRTL scope of recognition. TUVAM submitted an acceptable application 
for renewal of its recognition as an NRTL on March 7, 2006. OSHA 
evaluated TUVAM's application for renewal and preliminarily determined 
that TUVAM can continue to meet the requirements prescribed by 29 CFR 
1910.7 for recognition. Accordingly, OSHA is making a determination 
that it does not need to conduct an on-site review of TUVAM's 
facilities based on its evaluations of TUVAM's application and all 
other available information, including its most recent audit of TUVAM's 
facilities conducted on August 17, 2012 (Peabody, MA), and April 27, 
2012 (San Diego, CA), in which the auditors found TUVAM to be in 
conformance with all applicable NRTL requirements. This preliminary 
finding does not constitute an interim or temporary approval of the 
application.
    OSHA welcomes public comment as to whether TUVAM meets the 
requirements of 29 CFR 1910.7 for renewal of their recognition as an 
NRTL. Comments should consist of pertinent written documents and 
exhibits. Commenters needing more time to comment must submit a request 
in writing, stating the reasons for the request. OSHA must receive the 
written request for an extension by the due date for comments. OSHA 
will limit any extension to 30 days unless the requester justifies a 
longer period. OSHA may deny a request for an extension if it is not 
adequately justified. To obtain or review copies of the publicly 
available information in TUVAM's application and other pertinent 
documents (including exhibits), as well as all submitted comments, 
contact the Docket Office, Room N-2625, Occupational Safety and Health 
Administration, U.S. Department of Labor, at the above address; these 
materials also are available online at http://www.regulations.gov under 
Docket No. OSHA-2007-0043.
    The NRTL Program staff will review all comments to the docket 
submitted in a timely manner and, after addressing the issues raised by 
these comments, will recommend whether to grant TUVAM's application for 
renewal. The Assistant Secretary will make the final decision on 
granting the application and, in making this decision, may undertake 
other proceedings prescribed in Appendix A to 29 CFR 1910.7. OSHA will 
publish a public notice of this final decision in the Federal Register.
