Authority: 44 U.S.C. 3507(a)(1)(D). This ICR seeks to extend PRA authority for the Cotton Dust Standard information collection codified in regulations 29 CFR 1910–1043. The purpose of the Standard and its information collection requirements is to provide protection for employees from the adverse health effects associated with occupational exposure to cotton dust. An Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSH Act) covered employer subject to the Standard must monitor employee exposure, reduce employee exposure to within permissible exposure limits, provide employees with medical examinations and training, and establish and maintain employee exposure monitoring and medical records. OSH Act sections 2(b)(9), 6, and 8(c) authorize this information collection. See 29 U.S.C. 651(b)(9), 655, and 657(c). 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 obtains OMB approval for this information collection under Control Number 1218–0061.

The DOL seeks to extend PRA authorization for this information collection for three (3) more years, without any change to existing requirements. The DOL notes that existing information collection requirements submitted to the OMB receive a month-to-month extension while they undergo review.

The notice was published in the Federal Register on December 31, 2014 (79 FR 78911). Pursuant to 29 CFR 90.18(c), reconsideration may be granted under the following circumstances: (1) If it appears on the basis of facts not previously considered that the determination complained of was erroneous; (2) If it appears that the determination complained of was based on a mistake in the determination of facts not previously considered; or (3) If in the opinion of the Certifying Officer, a misinterpretation of facts or of the law justified reconsideration of the decision. The initial investigation resulted in a negative determination based on the findings that the subject firm did not import high explosive mortar rounds and demolition charges or shift production to a foreign country of such articles. In the request for reconsideration, the Kansas Department of Commerce alleged workers at the subject firm had been impacted by foreign competition as production that could have taken place at the subject firm had instead been awarded to a firm in Canada. According to 29 CFR 90.2, increased imports means that imports have increased either absolutely or relative to domestic production compared to a representative base period. The representative base period shall be one year consisting of the four quarters immediately preceding the date which is twelve months prior to the date of the petition. This petition was filed in October 2014. Therefore, the period under investigation is 2012, 2013, E:\FR\FM\19MRN1.SGM 19MRN1 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 53 / Thursday, March 19, 2015 / Notices January through September 2013, and January through September 2014. During the reconsideration investigation, the Department collected additional information from the subject firm and the customer of the subject firm. The information obtained confirmed that neither the subject firm nor its customer increased imports of articles like or directly competitive with high explosive mortar rounds and demolition charges. Additionally, the production of such articles did not shift to a foreign country in the period under investigation. Therefore, after careful review of the request for reconsideration, the Department determines that 29 CFR 90.18(c) has not been met.

Day & Zimmermann, Inc., Kansas Division, Parsons, Kansas; Notice 
of Negative Determination on Reconsideration

    On December 17, 2014, the Department of Labor issued an Affirmative 
Determination Regarding Application for Reconsideration for the workers 
and former workers of Day & Zimmermann, Inc., Parsons, Kansas. The 
notice was published in the Federal Register on December 31, 2014 (79 
FR 78911).
    Pursuant to 29 CFR 90.18(c), reconsideration may be granted under 
the following circumstances:
    (1) If it appears on the basis of facts not previously considered 
that the determination complained of was erroneous;
    (2) If it appears that the determination complained of was based on 
a mistake in the determination of facts not previously considered; or
    (3) If in the opinion of the Certifying Officer, a 
misinterpretation of facts or of the law justified reconsideration of 
the decision.
    The initial investigation resulted in a negative determination 
based on the findings that the subject firm did not import high 
explosive mortar rounds and demolition charges or shift production to a 
foreign country of such articles.
    In the request for reconsideration, the Kansas Department of 
Commerce alleged workers at the subject firm had been impacted by 
foreign competition as production that could have taken place at the 
subject firm had instead been awarded to a firm in Canada.
    According to 29 CFR 90.2, increased imports means that imports have 
increased either absolutely or relative to domestic production compared 
to a representative base period. The representative base period shall 
be one year consisting of the four quarters immediately preceding the 
date which is twelve months prior to the date of the petition. This 
petition was filed in October 2014. Therefore, the period under 
investigation is 2012, 2013,

[[Page 14413]]

January through September 2013, and January through September 2014.
    During the reconsideration investigation, the Department collected 
additional information from the subject firm and the customer of the 
subject firm.
    The information obtained confirmed that neither the subject firm 
nor its customer increased imports of articles like or directly 
competitive with high explosive mortar rounds and demolition charges. 
Additionally, the production of such articles did not shift to a 
foreign country in the period under investigation.
    Therefore, after careful review of the request for reconsideration, 
the Department determines that 29 CFR 90.18(c) has not been met.

Conclusion

    After careful review, I determine that the requirements of Section 
222 of the Act, 19 U.S.C. 2272, have not been met and, therefore, deny 
the petition for group eligibility of Day & Zimmermann, Inc., Parsons, 
Kansas, to apply for adjustment assistance, in accordance with Section 
223 of the Act, 19 U.S.C. 2273.

    Signed in Washington, DC on this 26th day of February 2015.
