Jkt 232001 The OWCP administers the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act. The Act provides benefits to workers injured in maritime employment on the navigable waters of the United States or in an adjoining area customarily used by an employee in loading, unloading, repairing or building a vessel. In addition, several acts extend coverage to certain other employees. Longshore Act section 30(a) requires an employer having knowledge of a disease or injury related to an employee’s employment to file a report of the disease or injury with the Secretary of Labor within 10 days after the date of injury or death. See also 20 CFR 702.201. Form LS–202 requests information the employer must report regarding the injury. Longshore Act section 30(b) requires the employer to furnish additional necessary reports regarding an employee’s injury. Form LS–210 is used as a supplementary report after the employer’s first report to report additional periods of lost-time from work. Proper filing of Forms LS– 202 and LS–210 meet the statutory requirements. This ICR has been classified as a revision, because the OWCP has augmented accessibility features on the forms, in order make it easier for persons with disabilities to provide needed information. 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 SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00114 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 4977 obtains OMB approval for this information collection under Control Number 1240–0003. The current approval is scheduled to expire on January 31, 2014; however, the DOL notes that existing information collection requirements submitted to the OMB receive a month-to-month extension while they undergo review. New requirements would only take effect upon OMB approval. For additional substantive information about this ICR, see the related notice published in the Federal Register on September 19, 2013 (77 FR 57662). Interested parties are encouraged to send comments to the OMB, Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs at the address shown in the ADDRESSES section within 30 days of publication of this notice in the Federal Register. In order to help ensure appropriate consideration, comments should mention OMB Control Number 1240– 0003. 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; • 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 other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses.

ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: In this notice, OSHA announces its final decision granting ¨ ¨ renewal of recognition of TUV SUD Product Services GmbH’s (TUVPSG) as a Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL) under 29 CFR 1910.7. SUMMARY: The renewal of recognition becomes effective on January 30, 2014. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: David W. Johnson, Director, Office of Technical Programs and Coordination Activities, NRTL Program, Occupational Safety and Health Administration, U.S. Department of Labor, 200 Constitution Avenue NW., Room N–3655, Washington, DC 20210, phone (202) 693–2110, or email at johnson.david.w@ dol.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: DATES: mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES I. Background OSHA recognition of an NRTL signifies that the organization meets the requirements in § 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 available at http://www. osha.gov/dts/otpca/nrtl/index.html. OSHA 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, VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:24 Jan 29, 2014 Jkt 232001 NRTLs 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 includes 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 key sites within the past 18 to 24 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 solicits 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. TUVPSG initially received OSHA recognition as an NRTL on July 20, 2001 (66 FR 38032), for a five-year period ending on July 20, 2006. TUVPSG submitted a timely request for renewal, dated October 10, 2005 (see Exhibit OSHA–2005–0022–0003), and retained its recognition pending OSHA’s final decision in this renewal process. The current address of the TUVPSG facility recognized by OSHA and included as ¨ ¨ part of the renewal request is TUV SUD Product Services GmbH, Ridlerstrasse 65, D–80339, Munich, Germany. OSHA evaluated TUVPSG’s application for renewal and made a preliminary determination that TUVPSG can continue to meet the requirements prescribed by 29 CFR 1910.7 for recognition. OSHA conducted an audit of TUVPSG’s facilities on April 26, 2013, and found TUVPSG to be in conformance with all applicable NRTL requirements. Accordingly, OSHA determined that it did not need to conduct an on-site review of TUVPSG’s facilities based on its evaluation of TUVPSG’s application and all other available information. OSHA published the preliminary notice announcing TUVPSG’s renewal request in the Federal Register on November 25, 2013. The Agency requested comments by December 10, 2013, but it received no comments in response to this notice. OSHA now is proceeding with this final notice to grant TUVPSG’s request for renewal of recognition. To obtain or review copies of all public documents pertaining to the TUVPSG’s application, contact the Docket Office, Occupational Safety and PO 00000 Frm 00115 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Health Administration, U.S. Department of Labor, 200 Constitution Avenue NW., Room N–2625, Washington, DC 20210. Docket No. OSHA–2005–0022 contains all materials in the record concerning TUVPSG’s recognition. II. Final Decision and Order Pursuant to the authority granted under 29 CFR 1910.7, OSHA hereby gives notice of the renewal of recognition of TUVPSG as an NRTL. OSHA NRTL Program staff reviewed the renewal request for TUVPSG and other pertinent information provided by TUVPSG. Based on this review, OSHA finds that TUVPSG meets the requirements of 29 CFR 1910.7 for renewal of its recognition, subject to the limitation and conditions listed below. OSHA limits the renewal of TUVPSG’s recognition to include the terms and conditions of TUVPSG’s individual scope of recognition. The scope of recognition for TUVPSG is available in the Federal Register notice dated July 20, 2001 (66 FR 38032) or at OSHA’s informational Web page for TUVPSG’s recognition as an NRTL on OSHA’s Web site at http://www.osha.gov/dts/otpca/ nrtl/tuvpsg.html. Conditions In addition to those conditions already required by 29 CFR 1910.7, TUVPSG also must abide by the following conditions of the recognition: 1. TUVPSG must inform OSHA as soon as possible, in writing, of any change of ownership, facilities, or key personnel, and of any major change in its operations as an NRTL, and provide details of the change(s); 2. TUVPSG must meet all the terms of its recognition and comply with all OSHA policies pertaining to this recognition; and 3. TUVPSG must continue to meet the requirements for recognition, including all previously published conditions on TUVPSG’s scope of recognition, in all areas for which it has recognition. III. Authority and Signature David Michaels, Ph.D., MPH, Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health, 200 Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20210, authorized the preparation of this notice. Accordingly, the Agency is issuing this notice pursuant to Section 8(g)(2) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (29 U.S.C. 657(g)(2)), Secretary of Labor’s Order No. 1–2012 (77 FR 3912, Jan. 25, 2012), and 29 CFR 1910.7.
