SDO Deletion and Replacement of Test Standards SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background The NRTL Program recognizes organizations that provide productsafety testing and certification services to manufacturers. These organizations perform testing and certification for purposes of the Program, to U.S. consensus-based product-safety test standards. The products covered by the NRTL Program consist of those items for which OSHA safety standards require ‘‘certification’’ by an NRTL. The requirements affect electrical products and 38 other types of products. OSHA does not develop or issue these test standards, but generally relies on standards-development organizations (SDOs), which develop and maintain the standards using a method that provides input and consideration of views of industry groups, experts, users, consumers, governmental authorities and others having broad experience in the safety field involved. A. Addition of New Test Standards to the NRTL List of Appropriate Test Standards Periodically, OSHA will propose to add new test standards to the NRTL list of appropriate test standards following an evaluation of the test standard document. To qualify as an appropriate test standard, the Agency evaluates the document to (1) verify it represents a product category for which OSHA requires certification by an NRTL, (2) verify the document represents an end product and not a component, and (3) verify the document defines safety test specifications (not installation or operational performance specifications). OSHA becomes aware of new test standards through various avenues. For example, OSHA may become aware of new test standards by: (1) Monitoring notifications issued by certain SDOs; (2) reviewing applications by NRTLs or applicants seeking recognition to include a new test standard in their scopes of recognition; and (3) obtaining notification from manufacturers, manufacturing organizations, government agencies, or other parties that a new test standard may be appropriate to add to its list of appropriate standards. OSHA may determine to include a new test standard in the list, for example, if the test standard is for a particular type of product that another test standard also covers, covers a type of product that no standard previously covered, or is otherwise new to the NRTL Program. PO 00000 Frm 00071 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 The NRTL Program regulations require that appropriate test standards be current (29 CFR 1910.7(c)). A test standard withdrawn by a standardsdevelopment organization is no longer considered an appropriate test standard (Directive, App. C.XIV.B). It is OSHA’s policy to remove recognition of withdrawn test standards by issuing a correction notice in the Federal Register for all NRTLs recognized for the withdrawn test standards. However, SDOs frequently will designate a replacement standard for standards they withdraw. OSHA will recognize an NRTL for an appropriate replacement test standard if the NRTL has the requisite testing and evaluation capability for the replacement test standard. One method that NRTLs may use to show such capability involves an analysis to determine whether any testing and evaluation requirements of existing test standards in an NRTL’s scope are comparable (i.e., are completely or substantially identical) to the requirements in the replacement test standard. If OSHA’s analysis shows the replacement test standard does not require additional or different technical capability than an existing test standard(s), the replacement test standard is comparable to the existing test standard(s), and OSHA can add the replacement test standard to affected NRTLs’ scopes of recognition. If OSHA’s analysis shows the replacement test standard requires an additional or different technical capability, or the replacement test standard is not comparable to any existing test standards, each affected NRTL that seeks to have OSHA add the replacement test standard to the NRTL’s scope of recognition must provide information to OSHA that demonstrates technical capability. C. Other Reasons for Removal of Test Standards From the NRTL List of Appropriate Test Standards OSHA may choose to remove a test standard from the NRTL list of appropriate test standards based on an internal review in which NRTL Program staff review the NRTL list of appropriate test standards to determine if the test standards conform to the definition of an appropriate test standard defined in NRTL Program regulations and policy. There are several reasons for removing a test standard based on this review. First, a document that provides the methodology for a single test is a test method rather than an appropriate test E:\FR\FM\06NON1.SGM 06NON1 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 215 / Thursday, November 6, 2014 / Notices standard (29 CFR 1910.7(c)). As stated above, a test standard must specify the safety requirements for a specific type of product(s). A test method, however, is a ‘‘specified technical procedure for performing a test’’ (Directive, App. B). As such, a test method is not an appropriate test standard. While an NRTL may use a test method to determine if certain safety requirements are met, a test method is not itself a safety requirement for a specific product category. Second, a document that focuses primarily on usage, installation, or maintenance requirements would also not be considered an appropriate test standard (Directive, App. D.IV.B). In some cases, however, a document may also provide safety test specifications in addition to usage, installation, and maintenance requirements. In such cases, the document would be retained as an appropriate test standard based on the safety test specifications. Finally, a document may not be considered an appropriate test standard if the document covers products for which OSHA does not require testing and certification (Directive, App. D.IV.A). Similarly, a document that covers electrical-product components would not be considered an appropriate test standard. These documents apply to types of components that have limitation(s) or condition(s) on their use, in that they are not appropriate for use as end-use products. These documents also specify that these types of components are for use only as part of an end-use product. NRTLs, however, evaluate such components only in the context of evaluating whether end-use products requiring NRTL approval are safe for use in the workplace. Testing such components alone would not indicate that the end-use products containing the components are safe for use. Accordingly, as a matter of policy, OSHA considers that documents covering such components are not appropriate test standards under the NRTL Program. OSHA notes, however, that it is not proposing to delete from NRTLs’ scopes of recognition any test standards covering end-use products that contain such components.1 In addition, OSHA notes that, to conform to a test standard covering an end-use product, an NRTL must still 65993 determine that the components in the product comply with the components’ specific test standards. In making this determination, NRTLs may test the components themselves, or accept the testing of a qualified testing organization that a given component conforms to its particular test standard. OSHA reviews each NRTL’s procedures to determine which approach the NRTL will use to address components, and reviews the end-use product testing to verify the NRTL appropriately addresses that product’s components. II. Proposal To Add New Test Standards to the NRTL Program’s List of Appropriate Test Standards In this notice, OSHA proposes to add several new test standards to the NRTL Program’s list of appropriate test standards. Table 1 below lists test standards that are new to the NRTL Program. OSHA preliminarily determined that these test standards are appropriate test standards and proposes to include these test standards in the NRTL Program’s list of appropriate test standards. OSHA seeks public comment on this preliminary determination.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    The NRTL Program recognizes organizations that provide product-
safety testing and certification services to manufacturers. These 
organizations perform testing and certification for purposes of the 
Program, to U.S. consensus-based product-safety test standards. The 
products covered by the NRTL Program consist of those items for which 
OSHA safety standards require ``certification'' by an NRTL. The 
requirements affect electrical products and 38 other types of products. 
OSHA does not develop or issue these test standards, but generally 
relies on standards-development organizations (SDOs), which develop and 
maintain the standards using a method that provides input and 
consideration of views of industry groups, experts, users, consumers, 
governmental authorities and others having broad experience in the 
safety field involved.

A. Addition of New Test Standards to the NRTL List of Appropriate Test 
Standards

    Periodically, OSHA will propose to add new test standards to the 
NRTL list of appropriate test standards following an evaluation of the 
test standard document. To qualify as an appropriate test standard, the 
Agency evaluates the document to (1) verify it represents a product 
category for which OSHA requires certification by an NRTL, (2) verify 
the document represents an end product and not a component, and (3) 
verify the document defines safety test specifications (not 
installation or operational performance specifications). OSHA becomes 
aware of new test standards through various avenues. For example, OSHA 
may become aware of new test standards by: (1) Monitoring notifications 
issued by certain SDOs; (2) reviewing applications by NRTLs or 
applicants seeking recognition to include a new test standard in their 
scopes of recognition; and (3) obtaining notification from 
manufacturers, manufacturing organizations, government agencies, or 
other parties that a new test standard may be appropriate to add to its 
list of appropriate standards. OSHA may determine to include a new test 
standard in the list, for example, if the test standard is for a 
particular type of product that another test standard also covers, 
covers a type of product that no standard previously covered, or is 
otherwise new to the NRTL Program.

B. SDO Deletion and Replacement of Test Standards

    The NRTL Program regulations require that appropriate test 
standards be current (29 CFR 1910.7(c)). A test standard withdrawn by a 
standards-development organization is no longer considered an 
appropriate test standard (Directive, App. C.XIV.B). It is OSHA's 
policy to remove recognition of withdrawn test standards by issuing a 
correction notice in the Federal Register for all NRTLs recognized for 
the withdrawn test standards. However, SDOs frequently will designate a 
replacement standard for standards they withdraw. OSHA will recognize 
an NRTL for an appropriate replacement test standard if the NRTL has 
the requisite testing and evaluation capability for the replacement 
test standard.
    One method that NRTLs may use to show such capability involves an 
analysis to determine whether any testing and evaluation requirements 
of existing test standards in an NRTL's scope are comparable (i.e., are 
completely or substantially identical) to the requirements in the 
replacement test standard. If OSHA's analysis shows the replacement 
test standard does not require additional or different technical 
capability than an existing test standard(s), the replacement test 
standard is comparable to the existing test standard(s), and OSHA can 
add the replacement test standard to affected NRTLs' scopes of 
recognition. If OSHA's analysis shows the replacement test standard 
requires an additional or different technical capability, or the 
replacement test standard is not comparable to any existing test 
standards, each affected NRTL that seeks to have OSHA add the 
replacement test standard to the NRTL's scope of recognition must 
provide information to OSHA that demonstrates technical capability.

C. Other Reasons for Removal of Test Standards From the NRTL List of 
Appropriate Test Standards

    OSHA may choose to remove a test standard from the NRTL list of 
appropriate test standards based on an internal review in which NRTL 
Program staff review the NRTL list of appropriate test standards to 
determine if the test standards conform to the definition of an 
appropriate test standard defined in NRTL Program regulations and 
policy. There are several reasons for removing a test standard based on 
this review. First, a document that provides the methodology for a 
single test is a test method rather than an appropriate test

[[Page 65993]]

standard (29 CFR 1910.7(c)). As stated above, a test standard must 
specify the safety requirements for a specific type of product(s). A 
test method, however, is a ``specified technical procedure for 
performing a test'' (Directive, App. B). As such, a test method is not 
an appropriate test standard. While an NRTL may use a test method to 
determine if certain safety requirements are met, a test method is not 
itself a safety requirement for a specific product category.
    Second, a document that focuses primarily on usage, installation, 
or maintenance requirements would also not be considered an appropriate 
test standard (Directive, App. D.IV.B). In some cases, however, a 
document may also provide safety test specifications in addition to 
usage, installation, and maintenance requirements. In such cases, the 
document would be retained as an appropriate test standard based on the 
safety test specifications.
    Finally, a document may not be considered an appropriate test 
standard if the document covers products for which OSHA does not 
require testing and certification (Directive, App. D.IV.A). Similarly, 
a document that covers electrical-product components would not be 
considered an appropriate test standard. These documents apply to types 
of components that have limitation(s) or condition(s) on their use, in 
that they are not appropriate for use as end-use products. These 
documents also specify that these types of components are for use only 
as part of an end-use product. NRTLs, however, evaluate such components 
only in the context of evaluating whether end-use products requiring 
NRTL approval are safe for use in the workplace. Testing such 
components alone would not indicate that the end-use products 
containing the components are safe for use. Accordingly, as a matter of 
policy, OSHA considers that documents covering such components are not 
appropriate test standards under the NRTL Program. OSHA notes, however, 
that it is not proposing to delete from NRTLs' scopes of recognition 
any test standards covering end-use products that contain such 
components.\1\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ OSHA notes also that some types of devices covered by these 
documents, such as capacitors and transformers, may be end-use 
products themselves, and tested under other test standards 
applicable to such products. For example, the following test 
standard covers transformers that are end-use products: UL 1562 
Standard for Transformers, Distribution, Dry-Type--Over 600 Volts. 
OSHA is not proposing to delete such test standards from NRTLs' 
scopes of recognition.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In addition, OSHA notes that, to conform to a test standard 
covering an end-use product, an NRTL must still determine that the 
components in the product comply with the components' specific test 
standards. In making this determination, NRTLs may test the components 
themselves, or accept the testing of a qualified testing organization 
that a given component conforms to its particular test standard. OSHA 
reviews each NRTL's procedures to determine which approach the NRTL 
will use to address components, and reviews the end-use product testing 
to verify the NRTL appropriately addresses that product's components.

II. Proposal To Add New Test Standards to the NRTL Program's List of 
Appropriate Test Standards

    In this notice, OSHA proposes to add several new test standards to 
the NRTL Program's list of appropriate test standards. Table 1 below 
lists test standards that are new to the NRTL Program. OSHA 
preliminarily determined that these test standards are appropriate test 
standards and proposes to include these test standards in the NRTL 
Program's list of appropriate test standards. OSHA seeks public comment 
on this preliminary determination.

III. Proposal To Delete or Replace Several Test Standards From the NRTL 
Program's List of Appropriate Test Standards

    In this notice, OSHA proposes to delete several withdrawn and 
deleted test standards from the NRTL Program's list of appropriate test 
standards. OSHA also proposes to incorporate into the NRTL Program's 
list of appropriate test standards replacement test standards for some 
of the withdrawn and deleted test standards.
    Table 2 lists the test standards that OSHA proposes to delete from 
the NRTL Program's list of appropriate test standards, as well as an 
abbreviated rationale for OSHA's proposed action. For a full discussion 
of the rationale, see Sections I.B and I.C of this notice. Table 2 also 
lists corresponding replacement test standards that OSHA proposes to 
incorporate into the NRTL Program's list of appropriate test standards 
(when applicable). OSHA seeks public comment on this preliminary 
determination.
    OSHA notes also that Table 2 lists the subject test standards and 
the proposed action with regard to each of these test standards without 
indicating how the proposed action will affect individual NRTLs. 
Section IV of this notice discusses how the proposed action will affect 
individual NRTLs.

    OSHA seeks comment on whether its proposed deletions and 
incorporations are appropriate, and whether it omitted any appropriate 
replacement test standard that is comparable to a withdrawn test 
standard. If OSHA determines that it omitted any appropriate 
replacement test standard that is comparable to a withdrawn test 
standard, it will, in its final determination, incorporate that 
replacement test standard into the scope of recognition of each 
affected NRTL.

IV. Proposed Modifications to Affected NRTLs' Scopes of Recognition

    In this notice, OSHA proposes to update the scopes of recognition 
of several NRTLs. The tables in this section (Table 3 thru Table 16) 
list, for each affected NRTL, the test standard(s) that OSHA proposes 
to delete from its scope of recognition and, when applicable, the test 
standard(s) that OSHA proposes to incorporate into its scope of 
recognition to replace withdrawn (and deleted) test standards. OSHA 
seeks comment on whether the proposed deletions and incorporations are 
correct and whether the replacement standard(s) require additional or 
different technical capability.

    OSHA will incorporate into its informational Web pages the 
modifications OSHA decides to make to each NRTL's scope of recognition. 
These Web pages detail the scope of recognition for each NRTL, 
including the test standards the NRTL may use to test and certify 
products under OSHA's NRTL Program. OSHA also will add, to its 
``Current List of Appropriate Test Standards under the NRTL Program'' 
Web page, those test standards it adds to the NRTL list of appropriate 
test standards, and add, to its ``Current List of Removed Test 
Standards'' Web page, those test standards that OSHA no longer 
recognizes or permits under the NRTL Program. Access to these Web pages 
is available at http://www.osha.gov/dts/otpca/nrtl/index.html.
