Authority: 44 U.S.C. 3507(a)(1)(D). This ICR seeks PRA authorization for the current information collection requirements contained in the Cranes and Derricks Standard codified at 29 CFR part 1926 subparts CC and M. These requirements mandate that a covered employer produce and maintain records documenting controls and other measures taken to protect workers from hazards related to cranes and derricks used in construction. Accordingly, a construction business with workers who operate or work in the vicinity of cranes and derricks must have, as applicable, the following documents on file and available at the job site: equipment ratings, employee training records, written authorizations from qualified individuals, and qualification program audits. During an inspection, the OSHA will have access to the records to determine compliance under conditions specified by the Standard. This ICR has been classified as a revision, because the OSHA has revised the ICR to exempt digger derricks used in construction work subject to 29 CFR part 1926 subpart V, in accordance with a Final Rule published in the Federal Register on May 29, 2013 (78 FY 32110). 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 1218–0261. The current approval is scheduled to expire on November 30, 2013; however, the DOL 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 September 13, 2013 (78 FR 56742). Interested parties are encouraged to send comments to the OMB, Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs at the address shown in the ADDRESSES sroberts on DSK5SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:56 Nov 27, 2013 Jkt 232001 section by January 2, 2014.
