OSHA’s Web page includes information about the NRTL Program (see http://www.osha. gov/dts/otpca/nrtl/index.html). SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: DATES: I. Notice of Final Decision The Occupational Safety and Health Administration hereby gives notice of the expansion of the scope of PO 00000 Frm 00048 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 3823 recognition of SGS North America, Inc. (SGS), as an NRTL. SGS’s expansion covers the addition of five recognized testing and certification sites and fourteen additional test standards to its NRTL scope of recognition, including one test standard that will be added to the NRTL Program List of Appropriate Test Standards. OSHA recognition of an NRTL signifies that the organization meets the requirements in Section 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. 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 currently has one facility (site) recognized by OSHA for product testing and certification, with its headquarters located at: 620 Old Peachtree Road, Suwanee, Georgia 30024. A complete list of SGS’s scope of recognition is available at: https://www.osha.gov/dts/ otpca/nrtl/sgs.html. II. General Background on the Application SGS submitted an application, dated October 1, 2014 (OSHA–2006–0040– 0023), to expand its recognition to include the addition of five recognized testing and certification sites located at: SGS–CSTC Standards Technical Services Co., Ltd.

SGS’s application also requested the addition of fourteen additional test standards to its scope of recognition. OSHA staff performed a detailed analysis of the application and other pertinent information. OSHA staff also performed on-site reviews of SGS’s testing and certification facilities on June 15, 2015 at SGS Shanghai, June 18, 2015 at SGS Ningbo, June 22, 2015 at SGS Shenzhen, June 24, 2015 at the two SGS Guangdong locations (Guangzhou and Shunde) and recommended expansion of SGS’s recognition to include these five sites and these fourteen test standards. OSHA published the preliminary notice announcing SGS’s expansion application in the Federal Register on October 13, 2015 (80 FR 61472). The Agency requested comments by October 28, 2015, 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 the 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. III. Final Decision and Order OSHA staff examined SGS’s expansion application, conducted a detailed on-site assessment, and examined 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 limitations and conditions listed below. OSHA, therefore, is proceeding with this final notice to grant SGS’s scope of recognition expansion. OSHA limits the expansion of SGS’s recognition to include the sites at Shanghai, China; Ningbo, China; Shenzhen, China; Guangzhou, China and Shunde, China as listed above. OSHA’s recognition of these sites limits SGS to performing product testing and certifications only to the test standards for which the site has the proper capability and programs, and for test standards in SGS’s scope of recognition. This limitation is consistent with the recognition that OSHA grants to other NRTLs that operate multiple sites. 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 VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:59 Jan 21, 2016 Jkt 238001 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 PO 00000 Frm 00049 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 also 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.

Electronic copies of this Federal Register notice, as well as all OSHA Federal Register notices mentioned in this document, are available on OSHA’s Web site at http:// www.osha.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background Section 18 of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (the ‘‘OSH Act;’’ 29 U.S.C. 667) provides that a state which desires to assume responsibility for the development and enforcement of occupational safety and health standards may submit for OSHA review and approval a State Plan for such development and enforcement. Regulations at 29 CFR part 1956 provide that a state may voluntarily submit a State Plan for the development and enforcement of occupational safety and health standards applicable only to employers and employees of the state and its political subdivisions. State and local government employers are PO 00000 Frm 00050 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 excluded from federal OSHA coverage under section 3(5) of the OSH Act. Under these regulations, the Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health (‘‘Assistant Secretary’’) may approve a State Plan for State and Local Government Employees, if the Plan provides for the development and enforcement of standards relating to hazards in employment covered by the Plan which are or will be at least as effective in providing safe and healthful employment and places of employment for public employees as standards promulgated and enforced by federal OSHA under section 6 of the OSH Act, giving due consideration to differences between public and private sector employment. Following initial approval, the state may begin enforcement of its safety and health standards in the public sector and receive up to 50 percent federal funding for the cost of Plan operations. A State Plan for State and Local Government Employees may receive initial approval even though at the time of submission not all essential components of the Plan are in place. Pursuant to 29 CFR 1956.2(b), the Assistant Secretary may initially approve the submission as a ‘‘developmental plan,’’ and a schedule within which the state must complete all ‘‘developmental steps’’ within a three year period is issued as part of the initial approval decision. 29 CFR part 1953 provides procedures for the review and approval of changes and progress in the development and implementation of the State Plan. When the Assistant Secretary has reviewed and approved all developmental submissions and finds that the state has satisfactorily completed all developmental steps specified in the initial approval decision, a notice certifying such completion is published in the Federal Register (see 29 CFR 1956.23 and 1902.34). Certification attests to the structural completeness of the Plan but does not render judgment as to the adequacy or effectiveness of state performance. E:\FR\FM\22JAN1.SGM 22JAN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Notice of Final Decision

    The Occupational Safety and Health Administration 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 
five recognized testing and certification sites and fourteen additional 
test standards to its NRTL scope of recognition, including one test 
standard that will be added to the NRTL Program List of Appropriate 
Test Standards.
    OSHA recognition of an NRTL signifies that the organization meets 
the requirements in Section 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.
    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 currently has one facility (site) recognized by OSHA for 
product testing and certification, with its headquarters located at: 
620 Old Peachtree Road, Suwanee, Georgia 30024. A complete list of 
SGS's scope of recognition is available at: https://www.osha.gov/dts/otpca/nrtl/sgs.html.

II. General Background on the Application

    SGS submitted an application, dated October 1, 2014 (OSHA-2006-
0040-0023), to expand its recognition to include the addition of five 
recognized testing and certification sites located at: SGS-CSTC 
Standards Technical Services Co., Ltd. Guangzhou Branch, 198 Kezhu 
Road, Scientech Park Guangzhou Economic & Technology Development 
District, Guangzhou, Guangdong, China, 510663; SGS-CSTC Standards 
Technical Services Co., Ltd. Shunde Branch, 198 Kezhu Road,

Ltd., No 588 West Jindu Road, Xinqiao Town, Songjiang District 201612, 
Shanghai, China. SGS's application also requested the addition of 
fourteen additional test standards to its scope of recognition. OSHA 
staff performed a detailed analysis of the application and other 
pertinent information. OSHA staff also performed on-site reviews of 
SGS's testing and certification facilities on June 15, 2015 at SGS 
Shanghai, June 18, 2015 at SGS Ningbo, June 22, 2015 at SGS Shenzhen, 
June 24, 2015 at the two SGS Guangdong locations (Guangzhou and Shunde) 
and recommended expansion of SGS's recognition to include these five 
sites and these fourteen test standards.
    OSHA published the preliminary notice announcing SGS's expansion 
application in the Federal Register on October 13, 2015 (80 FR 61472). 
The Agency requested comments by October 28, 2015, 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 
the 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.

III. Final Decision and Order

    OSHA staff examined SGS's expansion application, conducted a 
detailed on-site assessment, and examined 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 limitations and conditions listed below. OSHA, therefore, is 
proceeding with this final notice to grant SGS's scope of recognition 
expansion. OSHA limits the expansion of SGS's recognition to include 
the sites at Shanghai, China; Ningbo, China; Shenzhen, China; 
Guangzhou, China and Shunde, China as listed above. OSHA's recognition 
of these sites limits SGS to performing product testing and 
certifications only to the test standards for which the site has the 
proper capability and programs, and for test standards in SGS's scope 
of recognition. This limitation is consistent with the recognition that 
OSHA grants to other NRTLs that operate multiple sites. 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.

* Test standard new to the NRTL Program.

    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 also 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.

[[Page 3825]]

    OSHA also is making a final determination to add a new standard to 
the NRTL Program's list of appropriate test standards. OSHA determines 
that this test standard is an appropriate test standard. Table 2 below 
lists the test standard that will be added to the NRTL Program's list 
of Appropriate Test Standards.

                       Appropriate Test Standards
