III. Proposed Actions There is an adjustment decrease of 13 hours as a result of removing the burden hours for an employer to disclose records to an OSHA compliance officer during an inspection, bringing the total burden hours to zero (0). However, while no responses have in fact been received, DOL is using the figure of ‘‘10’’ responses in order to have the ICR comport to regulation 5 CFR 1320.3(c)(4)(i), which deems any rule of general applicability to involve at least 10 respondents. The Agency is, therefore, using the above per response burden to maintain a time burden as close as is possible to the actual time of no hours (1 hour). Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection. Title: Aerial Lifts (29 CFR 1926.453). OMB Control Number: 1218–0216. Affected Public: Business or other forprofits. Number of Respondents: 10. Frequency of Responses: On occasion. Total Responses: 10. Average Time per Response: 6 minutes (0.10 hour). Estimated Total Burden Hours: 1. Estimated Cost (Operation and Maintenance): $0. mstockstill on DSK3G9T082PROD with NOTICES IV.

Notice of Final Decision OSHA hereby gives notice of the expansion of the scope of recognition of Nemko North America, Inc. (NNA), as an NRTL. NNA’s expansion covers the addition of one test standard 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.

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. OSHA published the preliminary notice announcing NNA’s expansion application in the Federal Register on August 1, 2016 (81 FR 50531). The Agency requested comments by August 16, 2016, but it received no comments in response to this notice.

Final Decision and Order OSHA staff examined NNA’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 NNA 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 NNA’s scope of recognition. OSHA limits the expansion of NNA’s recognition to testing and certification of products for demonstration of conformance to the test standard listed in Table 1 below. which OSHA does not require such testing and certification, an NRTL’s scope of recognition does not include these products.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Notice of Final Decision

    OSHA hereby gives notice of the expansion of the scope of 
recognition of Nemko North America, Inc. (NNA), as an NRTL. NNA's 
expansion covers the addition of one test standard 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://

[[Page 67008]]

www.osha.gov/dts/otpca/nrtl/index.html.
    NNA submitted an application, dated June 25, 2015 (OSHA-2013-0016-
0012), to expand its recognition to include one additional test 
standard. 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.
    OSHA published the preliminary notice announcing NNA's expansion 
application in the Federal Register on August 1, 2016 (81 FR 50531). 
The Agency requested comments by August 16, 2016, but it received no 
comments in response to this notice. OSHA now is proceeding with this 
final notice to grant expansion of NNA's scope of recognition.
    To obtain or review copies of all public documents pertaining to 
the NNA'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-2013-0016 contains all materials in the record 
concerning NNA's recognition.

II. Final Decision and Order

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

                                          Requirements.
------------------------------------------------------------------------

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