This ICR seeks approval under the PRA for revisions to the Request for Information on Earnings, Dual Benefits, Dependents, and Third-Party Settlements (Form CA– 1032, Form EN–1032) information collection. The OWCP uses this collection to obtain information from a Federal Employees’ Compensation Act (FECA) claimant receiving workers’ compensation benefits over an extended period. The OWCP uses the response to determine whether the claimant is entitled to continue receiving benefits and whether the benefit amount should be adjusted. The collection is necessary to ensure the beneficiary receives correct compensation. This information collection has been classified as a revision, because OWCP has made several clarifications to the data collection. The FECA authorizes this information collection. See 5 U.S.C. 8124 and 8149. 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 1240–0016. The current approval is scheduled to expire on May 31, 2017; however, the DOL notes that existing information collection requirements submitted to the OMB receive a month-to-month extension while they undergo review. New requirements would only take effect upon OMB approval. For additional substantive information about this ICR, see the related notice published in the Federal Register on February 27, 2017 (82 FR 11946). Interested parties are encouraged to send comments to the OMB, Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs at the address shown in the ADDRESSES section by June 30, 2017. In order to help ensure appropriate consideration, comments should mention OMB Control Number 1240–0016.

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 accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA) (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 collections of information contained in the Hydrostatic Testing Provision of the Portable Fire Extinguishers Standard are necessary to reduce workers’ risk of death or serious injury by ensuring that portable fire extinguishers are in safe operating condition. The following section describes who uses the information in the certification record, as well as how they use it. sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES Test records (§ 1910.157(f)(16)) Paragraph (f)(16) requires employers to develop and maintain a certification record of hydrostatic testing of portable fire extinguishers.

III. Proposed Actions OSHA is requesting that OMB extend its approval of the information collection requirements contained in the Hydrostatic Testing Provision of the Portable Fire Extinguishers Standard for General Industry (29 CFR 1910.157(f)(16)). OSHA is proposing to increase the burden hours in the currently approved information collection request from 125,986 burden hours to 519,161 burden hours (a total increase of 393,175 hours). This increase is due to updated data showing an increase in the number of firms affected by the Standard.

PO 00000 Frm 00091 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 23611 SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Notice of the Application for Expansion The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is providing notice that Curtis-Strauss LLC (CSL), is applying for expansion of its current recognition as an NRTL. CSL requests the addition of one test standard to its NRTL scope of recognition. OSHA recognition of an NRTL signifies that the organization meets the requirements specified in 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. Each NRTL’s scope of recognition includes (1) the type of products the NRTL may test, with each type specified by its applicable test standard; and (2) the recognized site(s) that has/have the technical capability to perform the product-testing and productcertification activities for test standards within the NRTL’s scope. Recognition is not a delegation or grant of government authority; however, recognition enables employers to use products approved by the NRTL to meet OSHA standards that require product testing and certification. The Agency processes applications by an NRTL for initial recognition and for an 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. 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, including CSL, which details the NRTL’s scope of recognition. These pages are available from the OSHA Web site at http://www.osha.gov/ dts/otpca/nrtl/index.html. CSL currently has one facility (site) recognized by OSHA for product testing and certification, with its headquarters located at: Curtis-Strauss LLC, Littleton Distribution Center, One Distribution Center Circle, Suite #1, Littleton, MA 01460. A complete list of CSL’s scope of recognition is available at https:// www.osha.gov/dts/otpca/nrtl/csl.html. II.

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 accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act 
of 1995 (PRA) (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 collections of information contained in the Hydrostatic Testing 
Provision of the Portable Fire Extinguishers Standard are necessary to 
reduce workers' risk of death or serious injury by ensuring that 
portable fire extinguishers are in safe operating condition. The 
following section describes who uses the information in the 
certification record, as well as how they use it.

Test records (Sec.  1910.157(f)(16))

    Paragraph (f)(16) requires employers to develop and maintain a 
certification record of hydrostatic testing of portable fire 
extinguishers. The certification record must include the date of 
inspection, the signature of the person who performed the test, and the 
serial number (or other identifier) of the fire extinguisher that was 
tested.

Disclosure of Test Certification Records

    The certification record must be made available to the Assistant 
Secretary or his/her representative upon request. The certification 
record provides assurance to employers, workers, and OSHA compliance 
officers that the fire extinguishers have been hydrostatically tested 
in accordance with and at the intervals specified in Sec.  
1910.157(f)(16), thereby, ensuring that they will operate properly in 
the event that workers need to use them. These records also provide the 
most efficient means for the compliance officers to determine that an 
employer is complying with the hydrostatic testing provision.

II. Special Issues for Comment

    OSHA has a particular interest in comments on the following issues:
     Whether the proposed information collection requirements 
are necessary for the proper performance of the Agency's functions, 
including whether the information is useful;
     The accuracy of OSHA's estimate of the burden (time and 
costs) of the information collection requirements, including the 
validity of the methodology and assumptions used;
     The quality, utility, and clarity of the information 
collected; and
     Ways to minimize the burden on employers who must comply--
for example, by using automated or other technological information 
collection and transmission techniques.

III. Proposed Actions

    OSHA is requesting that OMB extend its approval of the information 
collection requirements contained in the Hydrostatic Testing Provision 
of the Portable Fire Extinguishers Standard for General Industry (29 
CFR 1910.157(f)(16)). OSHA is proposing to increase the burden hours in 
the currently approved information collection request from 125,986 
burden hours to 519,161 burden hours (a total increase of 393,175 
hours). This increase is due to updated data showing an increase in the 
number of firms affected by the Standard. The Agency will summarize the 
comments submitted in response to this notice and will include this 
summary in the request to OMB.
    Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection.
