Download as PDF 67008 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 189 / Thursday, September 29, 2016 / Notices 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. 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. DEPARTMENT OF LABOR A.

    ACCSH membership: ACCSH consists of 15 members whom the Secretary 
appoints. ACCSH members generally serve staggered two-year terms, 
unless they resign, cease to be qualified, or become unable to serve, 
or the Secretary removes them (29 CFR 1912.3(e)). The Secretary may 
appoint ACCSH members to successive terms. No member of ACCSH, other 
than members who represent employers or employees, shall have an 
economic interest in any proposed rule that affects the construction 
industry (29 CFR 1912.6).
    The categories of ACCSH membership, and the number of new members 
to be appointed to replace members whose terms will expire, are:
     Five members who are qualified by experience and 
affiliation to present the viewpoint of employers in the construction 
industry--three employer representatives will be appointed;
     Five members who are similarly qualified to present the 
viewpoint of employees in the construction industry--three employee 
representatives will be appointed;
     Two representatives of State safety and health agencies--
one representative from a State safety and health agency will be 
appointed;
     Two public members, qualified by knowledge and experience 
to make a useful contribution to the work of ACCSH, such as those who 
have professional or technical experience and competence with 
occupational safety and health in the construction industry--one public 
representative will be appointed; and
     One representative designated by the Secretary of the 
Department of Health and Human Services and appointed by the 
Secretary--no new appointment will be made.
    The Department of Labor is committed to equal opportunity in the 
workplace and seeks broad-based and diverse ACCSH membership. Any 
interested person or organization may nominate one or more individuals 
for membership on ACCSH. Interested persons also are invited and 
encouraged to submit statements in support of nominees.
    Submission requirements: Nominations must include the following 
information:

and associations;

nominated membership categories;

is willing to regularly attend and participate in ACCSH meetings, and 
has no conflicts of interest that would preclude membership on ACCSH.

basis of their experience, knowledge, and competence in the field of 
occupational safety and health, particularly as it pertains to the 
construction industry. Information received through this nomination 
process, in addition to other relevant sources of information, will
