The Department reviewed the certification applicable to the workers and former workers of the subject firm. New information shows that worker separations in Customer Care Pricing and Contracts (C&P), at the Albuquerque, New Mexico location are attributable to the acquisition of services from a foreign country that was the basis for the original certification. Based on these findings, the Department is amending this certification to include workers of Customer Care Pricing and Contracts (C&P) at the Albuquerque, New Mexico location of the subject firm.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Notice of Final Decision

    OSHA hereby gives notice of the expansion of the scope of 
recognition of SGS North America, Inc. (SGS), as an NRTL. SGS's 
expansion covers the addition of four 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.
    SGS submitted an application, dated May 28, 2014 (OSHA-2006-0040-
0014, Exhibit 14-3--SGS Request for Expansion), to expand its 
recognition to include four \1\ additional test standards. OSHA staff 
performed a detailed analysis of the application packet and reviewed 
other pertinent information. OSHA did not perform any on-site reviews 
in relation to this application.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ In its application, SGS initially requested expansion for 5 
standards. However, documentation for the fifth standard, UL 859, 
was submitted late and the review of SGS's capabilities for that 
standard will be handled separately.

    OSHA published the preliminary notice announcing SGS's expansion 
application in the Federal Register on

August 29, 2014 (79 FR 51615). The Agency requested comments by 
September 15, 2014, but it received no comments in response to this 
notice. OSHA now is proceeding with this final notice to grant 
expansion of SGS's scope of recognition.
    To obtain or review copies of all public documents pertaining to 
SGS'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-2006-0040 contains all materials in the record 
concerning SGS's recognition.

II. Final Decision and Order

    OSHA staff examined SGS'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 SGS 
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 SGS's 
scope of recognition. OSHA limits the expansion of SGS's recognition to 
testing and certification of products for demonstration of conformance 
to the test standards listed in Table 1 below.

    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, 
SGS must abide by the following conditions of the recognition:
    1. SGS 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. SGS must meet all the terms of its recognition and comply with 
all OSHA policies pertaining to this recognition; and
    3. SGS must continue to meet the requirements for recognition, 
including all previously published conditions on SGS'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 SGS, subject to the limitation and conditions 
specified above.

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.
