SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Notice of the Application for Expansion The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is providing notice that Underwriters Laboratories, Inc., (UL) is applying for expansion of its current recognition as a Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL). UL requests the addition of multiple test standards to their NRTL scope of recognition. OSHA recognition of an NRTL signifies that the organization meets the requirements specified in Title 29, Code of Federal Regulations, Section 1910.7 (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. Recognition enables employers to use products approved by the NRTL to meet OSHA standards that require product testing and certification. The Agency processes applications by an NRTL for initial recognition and for an expansion or renewal of this recognition, following requirements in Appendix A to 29 CFR 1910.7. This appendix requires that the Agency publish two notices in the Federal Register in processing an application. In the first notice, OSHA announces the application and provides its preliminary finding. In the second notice, the Agency provides its final decision on the application. These notices set forth the NRTL’s scope of recognition or modifications of that scope. OSHA maintains an informational Web page for each NRTL, including UL, which details the NRTL’s scope of recognition. These pages are available from the OSHA Web site at http://www.osha.gov/ dts/otpca/nrtl/index.html. Each NRTL’s scope of recognition has three elements: (1) The type of products the NRTL may test, with each type specified by its applicable test standard; (2) the recognized site(s) that has/have the technical capability to perform the product-testing and productcertification activities for test standards within the NRTL’s scope; and (3) the supplemental program(s) that the NRTL may use. Each of these elements allows the NRTL to rely on other parties to perform activities necessary for product testing and certification. 73209 UL currently has 34 facilities (sites) recognized by OSHA for product testing and certification, with its headquarters located at: Underwriters Laboratories Inc., 333 Pfingsten Road, Northbrook, IL 60062. A complete list of UL sites recognized by OSHA is available at http://www.osha.gov/dts/otpca/nrtl/ ul.html. II. General Background on the Application and Request UL submitted an application, dated March 26, 2013 (Ex. 1: UL Application), to expand its recognition to include multiple additional test standards. The Office of Technical Programs and Coordination Activities (OTPCA) staff performed a comparability analysis and reviewed other pertinent information. OSHA did not perform any on-site reviews in relation to this application. The OTPCA staff determined that 23 of these standards are ‘‘appropriate test standards’’ within the meaning of 29 CFR 1910.7(c). Table 1 below lists appropriate test standards found within UL’s application for expansion for testing and certification of products under the NRTL Program.

Preliminary Finding on the Application and Request 1–2012 (77 FR 3912, Jan. 25, 2012), and 29 CFR 1910.7. UL submitted an acceptable application for expansion of its scope of recognition. OSHA’s review of the application file, and its comparability analysis, indicate that UL can meet the requirements prescribed by 29 CFR 1910.7 for expanding its recognition to include 23 test standards for NRTL testing and certification. This preliminary finding does not constitute an interim or temporary approval of UL’s application and request. OSHA welcomes public comment as to whether UL meets the requirements of 29 CFR 1910.7 for expansion of its 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. Commenters must submit the written request for an extension by the due date for comments. OSHA will limit any extension to 10 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 UL’s application and request, including pertinent documents (e.g., exhibits) and 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–2009–0025. The OTPCA staff will review all comments to the docket submitted in a timely manner and, after addressing the issues raised by these comments, will recommend to the Assistant Secretary for Occupational Safety and Health whether to grant UL’s application for expansion of its scope of recognition. The Assistant Secretary will make the final decision on granting the application and request. In making this decision, the Assistant Secretary 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. Signed at Washington, DC, on December 2, 2013.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Notice of the Application for Expansion

    The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is 
providing notice that Underwriters Laboratories, Inc., (UL) is applying 
for expansion of its current recognition as a Nationally Recognized 
Testing Laboratory (NRTL). UL requests the addition of multiple test 
standards to their NRTL scope of recognition.
    OSHA recognition of an NRTL signifies that the organization meets 
the requirements specified in Title 29, Code of Federal Regulations, 
Section 1910.7 (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. 
Recognition enables employers to use products approved by the NRTL to 
meet OSHA standards that require product testing and certification.
    The Agency processes applications by an NRTL for initial 
recognition and for an expansion or renewal of this recognition, 
following requirements in Appendix A to 29 CFR 1910.7. This appendix 
requires that the Agency publish two notices in the Federal Register in 
processing an application. In the first notice, OSHA announces the 
application and provides its preliminary finding. In the second notice, 
the Agency provides its final decision on the application. These 
notices set forth the NRTL's scope of recognition or modifications of 
that scope. OSHA maintains an informational Web page for each NRTL, 
including UL, which details the NRTL's scope of recognition. These 
pages are available from the OSHA Web site at http://www.osha.gov/dts/otpca/nrtl/index.html.
    Each NRTL's scope of recognition has three elements: (1) The type 
of products the NRTL may test, with each type specified by its 
applicable test standard; (2) the recognized site(s) that has/have the 
technical capability to perform the product-testing and product-
certification activities for test standards within the NRTL's scope; 
and (3) the supplemental program(s) that the NRTL may use. Each of 
these elements allows the NRTL to rely on other parties to perform 
activities necessary for product testing and certification.
    UL currently has 34 facilities (sites) recognized by OSHA for 
product testing and certification, with its headquarters located at: 
Underwriters Laboratories Inc., 333 Pfingsten Road, Northbrook, IL 
60062. A complete list of UL sites recognized by OSHA is available at 
http://www.osha.gov/dts/otpca/nrtl/ul.html.

II. General Background on the Application and Request

    UL submitted an application, dated March 26, 2013 (Ex. 1: UL 
Application), to expand its recognition to include multiple additional 
test standards. The Office of Technical Programs and Coordination 
Activities (OTPCA) staff performed a comparability analysis and 
reviewed other pertinent information. OSHA did not perform any on-site 
reviews in relation to this application. The OTPCA staff determined 
that 23 of these standards are ``appropriate test standards'' within 
the meaning of 29 CFR 1910.7(c).
    Table 1 below lists appropriate test standards found within UL's 
application for expansion for testing and certification of products 
under the NRTL Program.

III. Preliminary Finding on the Application and Request

    UL submitted an acceptable application for expansion of its scope 
of recognition. OSHA's review of the application file, and its 
comparability analysis, indicate that UL can meet the requirements 
prescribed by 29 CFR 1910.7 for expanding its recognition to include 23 
test standards for NRTL testing and certification. This preliminary 
finding does not constitute an interim or temporary approval of UL's 
application and request.
    OSHA welcomes public comment as to whether UL meets the 
requirements of 29 CFR 1910.7 for expansion of its 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. Commenters must submit 
the written request for an extension by the due date for comments. OSHA 
will limit any extension to 10 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 UL's application and request, including 
pertinent documents (e.g., exhibits) and 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-2009-0025.
    The OTPCA staff will review all comments to the docket submitted in 
a timely manner and, after addressing the issues raised by these 
comments, will recommend to the Assistant Secretary for Occupational 
Safety and Health whether to grant UL's application for expansion of 
its scope of recognition. The Assistant Secretary will make the final 
decision on granting the application and request. In making this 
decision, the Assistant Secretary 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.
