A number of OSHA issued standards contain requirements that specify employers use only equipment, products, or material tested or approved by a NRTL. These requirements ensure that employers use safe and efficacious equipment, products, or materials in complying with the standards. Accordingly, the OSHA promulgated its Program Regulation for Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratories, 29 CFR 1910.7 (the Regulation). The Regulation specifies procedures that an organization must follow to apply for and to maintain OSHA recognition to test and certify equipment, products, or material for safe use in the workplace. The OSHA has also developed standardized optional use forms to facilitate and simplify the information SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Jkt 241001 PO 00000 Frm 00036 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 collection process. The forms correspond to the application, expansion, and renewal processes defined in the NRTL Program.

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 1218–0147. OMB authorization for an ICR cannot be for more than three (3) years without renewal, and 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. For additional substantive information about this ICR, see the related notice published in the Federal Register on December 28, 2016 (81 FR 95650). Interested parties are encouraged to send comments to the OMB, Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs at the address shown in the ADDRESSES section within thirty (30) days of publication of this notice in the Federal Register.

    Authority: 44 U.S.C. 3507(a)(1)(D).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks to extend PRA authority for 
the Definition and Requirements for a Nationally Recognized Testing 
Laboratory (NRTL) information collection. A number of OSHA issued 
standards contain requirements that specify employers use only 
equipment, products, or material tested or approved by a NRTL. These 
requirements ensure that employers use safe and efficacious equipment, 
products, or materials in complying with the standards. Accordingly, 
the OSHA promulgated its Program Regulation for Nationally Recognized 
Testing Laboratories, 29 CFR 1910.7 (the Regulation). The Regulation 
specifies procedures that an organization must follow to apply for and 
to maintain OSHA recognition to test and certify equipment, products, 
or material for safe use in the workplace. The OSHA has also developed 
standardized optional use forms to facilitate and simplify the 
information collection process. The forms correspond to the 
application, expansion, and renewal processes defined in the NRTL 
Program. Occupational Safety and Health Act sections 2(b)(3), (9), and 
(12) and 8(c) and (g) authorize this information collection. See 29 
U.S.C. 651(b)(3), (9), (12); 657(c) and (g).
    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 1218-0147.
    OMB authorization for an ICR cannot be for more than three (3) 
years without renewal, and 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. For additional 
substantive information about this ICR, see the related notice 
published in the Federal Register on December 28, 2016 (81 FR 95650).
    Interested parties are encouraged to send comments to the OMB, 
Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs at the address shown in 
the ADDRESSES section within thirty (30) days of publication of this 
notice in the Federal Register. In order to help ensure appropriate 
consideration, comments should mention OMB Control Number 1218-0147. 
The OMB is particularly interested in comments that:
     Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is 
necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, 
including whether the information will have practical utility;
     Evaluate the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the 
burden of the proposed collection of information, including the 
validity of the methodology and assumptions used;
     Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the 
information to be collected; and
     Minimize the burden of the collection of information on 
those who

are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated, 
electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or 
other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic 
submission of responses.
