The FY 2017 LSA list, statistical data on the current and some previous year’s LSAs, and the list of LSAs in Puerto Rico are available at ETA’s LSA Web site http:// www.doleta.gov/programs/lsa.cfm. mstockstill on DSK3G9T082PROD with NOTICES Petition for Exceptional Circumstance Consideration The classification procedures also provide criteria for the designation of LSAs under exceptional circumstances criteria. These procedures permit the regular classification criteria to be waived when an area experiences a significant increase in unemployment which is not temporary or seasonal and which was not reflected in the data for the 2-year reference period. Under the program’s exceptional circumstance procedures, LSA classifications can be made for civil jurisdictions, Metropolitan Statistical Areas or Combined Statistical Areas, as defined by the U.S. Office of Management and Budget. In order for an area to be classified as a LSA under the exceptional circumstance criteria, the state workforce agency must submit a petition requesting such classification to the Department of Labor’s ETA. The current criteria for an exceptional circumstance classification are, (1) An area’s unemployment rate is at least 6.93 percent for each of the three most recent months; (2) a projected unemployment rate of at least 6.93 percent for each of the next 12 months; and (3) documentation that the exceptional circumstance event has occurred. The state workforce agency may file petitions on behalf of civil jurisdictions, Metropolitan Statistical Areas, or Micropolitan Statistical Areas.

OSHA’s Web page includes information about the NRTL Program (see http:// www.osha.gov/dts/otpca/nrtl/ index.html). SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: 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 three (3) recognized testing and certification sites and thirty-nine (39) recognized testing standards to its NRTL scope of recognition. OSHA recognition of an NRTL signifies that the organization meets the PO 00000 Frm 00083 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 67001 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 submitted four applications, two dated September 24, 2014 (OSHA– 2006–0040–0025), and two dated October 1, 2014 (OSHA–2006–0040– 0026 and OSHA–2006–0040–0028), to expand its recognition to include the addition of three recognized testing and certification sites located at: SGS Tecnos S.A., C/. Trespaderne 29, Edificio Barajas 1, 28042 Madrid—Spain; SGS Fimko, Ltd., Sarkiniementie 3, FI–00210 Helsinki, Finland; and SGS Baseefa Limited, Rockhead Business Park, Staden Lane, Buxton SK17 9RZ, United Kingdom. Amendments to the October 1, 2014, applications were received on January 14, 2015 (OSHA–2006–0040– 0027), and June 16, 2016 (OSHA–2006– 0040–0029). These applications additionally requested the addition of forty-nine (49) additional test standards to SGS’s scope of recognition, in addition to the three testing and certification sites. 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 August 5, 2015, at SGS Madrid; on August 13, 2015, at SGS Baseefa; and on August 17, 2015, at SGS Fimko and recommended expansion of SGS’s recognition to include these three (3) testing sites and 39 of the 49 requested test standards. E:\FR\FM\29SEN1.SGM 29SEN1 67002 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 189 / Thursday, September 29, 2016 / Notices OSHA published the preliminary notice announcing SGS’s expansion applications in the Federal Register on July 21, 2016 (81 FR 47438). The Agency requested comments by August 5, 2016, 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 include these three recognized testing sites and thirty-nine (39) of the forty-nine (49) requested testing standards. 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. II. Final Decision and Order OSHA staff examined SGS’s expansion applications, conducted detailed on-site assessments, 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 this expansion to SGS’s scope of recognition to include three additional test sites. OSHA limits the expansion of SGS’s recognition to include the sites at SGS Madrid, Madrid, Spain; SGS Fimko, Helsinki, Finland; and SGS Baseefa, Buxton, United Kingdom 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. Additionally, OSHA is proceeding with this final notice to grant SGS’s scope to recognition to include thirtynine additional test standards to its 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.

Consequently, if a test standard also covers any products for which OSHA does not require such PO 00000 Frm 00084 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 testing and certification, an NRTL’s scope of recognition does not include these products. E:\FR\FM\29SEN1.SGM 29SEN1 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 189 / Thursday, September 29, 2016 / Notices 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background The Department of Labor, as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent (i.e., employer) burden, conducts a preclearance consultation program to provide the public with an opportunity to comment on proposed and continuing information collection requirements in accord with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA–95) (44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)). This program ensures that information is in the desired format, reporting burden (time and costs) is minimal, collection instruments are clearly understood, and OSHA’s estimate of the information collection burden is accurate. The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (the OSH Act) (29 U.S.C. 651 et seq.) authorizes information collection by employers as necessary or appropriate for enforcement of the OSH Act or for developing information regarding the causes and prevention of occupational injuries, illnesses, and accidents (29 U.S.C. 657). The OSH Act also requires that OSHA obtain such information with minimum burden upon employers, especially those operating small businesses, and to reduce to the maximum extent feasible unnecessary duplication of efforts in obtaining information (29 U.S.C. 657). The information collected is used by employers and workers whenever welding, cutting and brazing are performed. The purpose of the information is to ensure that employers evaluate hazards associated with welding and ensure that adequate measures are taken to make the process safe. E:\FR\FM\29SEN1.SGM 29SEN1

information about the NRTL Program (see http://www.osha.gov/dts/otpca/nrtl/index.html).

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 three (3) recognized testing and 
certification sites and thirty-nine (39) recognized testing standards 
to its NRTL scope of recognition.
    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 submitted four applications, two dated September 24, 2014 
(OSHA-2006-0040-0025), and two dated October 1, 2014 (OSHA-2006-0040-
0026 and OSHA-2006-0040-0028), to expand its recognition to include the 
addition of three recognized testing and certification sites located 
at: SGS Tecnos S.A., C/. Trespaderne 29, Edificio Barajas 1, 28042 
Madrid--Spain; SGS Fimko, Ltd., Sarkiniementie 3, FI-00210 Helsinki, 
Finland; and SGS Baseefa Limited, Rockhead Business Park, Staden Lane, 
Buxton SK17 9RZ, United Kingdom. Amendments to the October 1, 2014, 
applications were received on January 14, 2015 (OSHA-2006-0040-0027), 
and June 16, 2016 (OSHA-2006-0040-0029). These applications 
additionally requested the addition of forty-nine (49) additional test 
standards to SGS's scope of recognition, in addition to the three 
testing and certification sites. 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 August 5, 2015, at SGS Madrid; on August 13, 2015, at SGS 
Baseefa; and on August 17, 2015, at SGS Fimko and recommended expansion 
of SGS's recognition to include these three (3) testing sites and 39 of 
the 49 requested test standards.

[[Page 67002]]

    OSHA published the preliminary notice announcing SGS's expansion 
applications in the Federal Register on July 21, 2016 (81 FR 47438). 
The Agency requested comments by August 5, 2016, 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 
include these three recognized testing sites and thirty-nine (39) of 
the forty-nine (49) requested testing standards.
    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.

II. Final Decision and Order

    OSHA staff examined SGS's expansion applications, conducted 
detailed on-site assessments, 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 this 
expansion to SGS's scope of recognition to include three additional 
test sites. OSHA limits the expansion of SGS's recognition to include 
the sites at SGS Madrid, Madrid, Spain; SGS Fimko, Helsinki, Finland; 
and SGS Baseefa, Buxton, United Kingdom 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.
    Additionally, OSHA is proceeding with this final notice to grant 
SGS's scope to recognition to include thirty-nine additional test 
standards to its 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.

[[Page 67003]]

    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.
    Pursuant to the authority in 29 CFR 1910.7, OSHA hereby expands the 
recognition of SGS, subject to the limitations and conditions specified 
above.
