SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks to maintain PRA authority for 
information collections contained in the Presence Sensing Device (PSD) 
Initiation Standard. Regulations 29 CFR 1910.217(h) sets standards for 
using a PSD in a mechanical power-press safety system. A PSD (e.g., a 
photoelectric field or curtain) automatically stops the stroke of a 
mechanical power press when the device detects an operator entering a 
danger zone near the press. The PSD initiation standard contains a 
number of information collection requirements, including: Certifying 
brakemonitor adjustments, alternatives to photoelectric PSDs, safety 
system design and installation, and worker training; annual 
recertification of safety systems; establishing and maintaining the 
original certification and validation records, as well as the most 
recent recertification and revalidation records; affixing labels to 
test rods and to certified and recertified presses; and notifying an 
OSHA-recognized third-party validation organization when a safety 
system component fails, the employer modifies the safety system, or a 
point-of-operation injury occurs. Occupational Safety and Health Act 
sections 6(b)(7), 29 U.S.C. 655(b)(7), and 8(c), 29 U.S.C. 657(c), 
authorize this information collection.
    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 1218-0143.
    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 December 31, 2013. The DOL seeks to extend PRA 
authorization for this information collection for three (3) more years, 
without any change to existing requirements. The DOL also notes that 
existing information collection requirements submitted to the OMB 
receive a month-to-month extension while they undergo review. For 
additional substantive information about this ICR, see the related 
notice published in the Federal Register on April 9, 2013, (78 FR 
21155).
    Interested parties are encouraged to send comments to the OMB,

The OMB is particularly interested in comments that:
     Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is 
necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, 
including whether the information will have practical utility;
     Evaluate the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the 
burden of the proposed collection of information, including the 
validity of the methodology and assumptions used;

techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting 
electronic submission of responses.
