ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: In this notice, OSHA announces its final decision to expand the scope of recognition for Intertek Testing Services NA, Inc., as a Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL). DATES: The expansion of the scope of recognition becomes effective on October 20, 2014. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Information regarding this notice is available from the following sources: Press inquiries: Contact Mr. Frank Meilinger, Director, OSHA Office of Communications, U.S. Department of Labor, 200 Constitution Avenue NW., Room N–3647, Washington, DC 20210; telephone: (202) 693–1999; email: Meilinger.francis2@dol.gov. General and technical information: Contact Mr. Kevin Robinson, Acting Director, Office of Technical Programs and Coordination Activities, Directorate of Technical Support and Emergency Management, Occupational Safety and Health Administration, U.S. Department of Labor, 200 Constitution Avenue NW., Room N–3655, Washington, DC 20210; telephone: (202) 693–2110; email: robinson.kevin@dol.gov. OSHA’s Web page includes information about the NRTL Program (see http://www.osha. gov/dts/otpca/nrtl/index.html). SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: OSHA hereby gives notice of the expansion of the scope of recognition of Intertek Testing Services NA, Inc. (ITSNA), as an NRTL. ITSNA’s expansion covers the addition of two test standards to its scope of recognition. OSHA recognition of an NRTL signifies that the organization meets the requirements specified by 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 of the products. The Agency processes applications by an NRTL for initial recognition, or for 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 and, 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 that details its scope of recognition. These pages are available from the Agency’s Web site at http:// www.osha.gov/dts/otpca/nrtl/ index.html. ITSNA submitted an application, dated January 29, 2014 (OSHA–2007– 0039–0017, Exhibit 1—Intertek Scope Expansion Request for AAMI ES60601 & UL 1004–1), to expand its recognition to include two additional test standards. OSHA staff performed a comparability analysis and reviewed other pertinent information. OSHA did not perform any on-site reviews in relation to this application. OSHA published the preliminary notice announcing ITSNA’s expansion application in the Federal Register on July 14, 2014 (79 FR 40782). The Agency requested comments by July 29, 2014, but it received no comments in response to this notice. OSHA now is proceeding with this final notice to grant expansion of ITSNA’s scope of recognition. To obtain or review copies of all public documents pertaining to the ITSNA’s application, go to www.regulations.gov or contact the Docket Office, Occupational Safety and Health Administration, U.S. Department of Labor, 200 Constitution Avenue NW., Room N–2625, Washington, DC 20210. Docket No. OSHA–2007–0039 contains all materials in the record concerning ITSNA’s recognition. II. Final Decision and Order OSHA staff examined ITSNA’s expansion application, its capability to meet the requirements of the test standards, and other pertinent information. Based on its review of this evidence, OSHA finds that ITSNA meets the requirements of 29 CFR 1910.7 for expansion of its recognition, subject to the limitation and conditions listed below. OSHA, therefore, is proceeding with this final notice to grant ITSNA’s scope of recognition. OSHA limits the expansion of ITSNA’s recognition to testing and certification of products for demonstration of conformance to the test standards listed in Table 1 below.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Notice of Final Decision

    OSHA hereby gives notice of the expansion of the scope of 
recognition of Intertek Testing Services NA, Inc. (ITSNA), as an NRTL. 
ITSNA's expansion covers the addition of two test standards to its 
scope of recognition.
    OSHA recognition of an NRTL signifies that the organization meets 
the requirements specified by 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 of the products.
    The Agency processes applications by an NRTL for initial 
recognition, or for 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 and, 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 that details its scope of recognition. These pages are 
available from the Agency's Web site at http://www.osha.gov/dts/otpca/nrtl/index.html.
    ITSNA submitted an application, dated January 29, 2014 (OSHA-2007-
0039-0017, Exhibit 1--Intertek Scope Expansion Request for AAMI ES60601 
& UL 1004-1), to expand its recognition to include two additional test 
standards. OSHA staff performed a comparability analysis and reviewed 
other pertinent information. OSHA did not perform any on-site reviews 
in relation to this application.
    OSHA published the preliminary notice announcing ITSNA's expansion 
application in the Federal Register on July 14, 2014 (79 FR 40782). The 
Agency requested comments by July 29, 2014, but it received no comments 
in response to this notice. OSHA now is proceeding with this final 
notice to grant expansion of ITSNA's scope of recognition.
    To obtain or review copies of all public documents pertaining to 
the ITSNA's application, go to www.regulations.gov or contact the 
Docket Office, Occupational Safety and Health Administration, U.S. 
Department of Labor, 200 Constitution Avenue NW., Room N-2625, 
Washington, DC 20210. Docket No. OSHA-2007-0039 contains all materials 
in the record concerning ITSNA's recognition.

II. Final Decision and Order

    OSHA staff examined ITSNA's expansion application, its capability 
to meet the requirements of the test standards, and other pertinent 
information. Based on its review of this evidence, OSHA finds that 
ITSNA meets the requirements of 29 CFR 1910.7 for expansion of its 
recognition, subject to the limitation and conditions listed below. 
OSHA, therefore, is proceeding with this final notice to grant ITSNA's 
scope of recognition. OSHA limits the expansion of ITSNA's recognition 
to testing and certification of products for demonstration of 
conformance to the test standards listed in Table 1 below.

         Table 1--List of Appropriate Test Standards for Inclusion in ITSNA's NRTL Scope of Recognition

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    OSHA's recognition of any NRTL for a particular test standard is 
limited to equipment or materials for which OSHA standards require 
third-party testing and certification before using them in the 
workplace. Consequently, if a test standard also covers any products 
for which OSHA does not require such testing and certification, an 
NRTL's scope of recognition does not include these products.
    The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) may approve the 
test standards listed above as American National Standards. However, 
for convenience, we may use the designation of the standards-developing 
organization for the standard as opposed to the ANSI designation. Under 
the NRTL Program's policy (see OSHA Instruction CPL 1-0.3, Appendix C, 
paragraph XIV), any NRTL recognized for a particular test standard may 
use either the proprietary version of the test standard or the ANSI 
version of that standard. Contact ANSI to determine whether a test 
standard is currently ANSI-approved.

A. Conditions

    In addition to those conditions already required by 29 CFR 1910.7,

[[Page 62677]]

ITSNA must abide by the following conditions of the recognition:
    1. ITSNA 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. ITSNA must meet all the terms of its recognition and comply with 
all OSHA policies pertaining to this recognition; and
    3. ITSNA must continue to meet the requirements for recognition, 
including all previously published conditions on ITSNA's scope of 
recognition, in all areas for which it has recognition.
    Pursuant to the authority in 29 CFR 1910.7, OSHA hereby expands the 
scope of recognition of ITSNA, subject to the limitation and conditions 
specified above.

Occupational Safety and Health, 200 Constitution Avenue NW.,
