OSHA hereby gives notice of the expansion of the scope of recognition of TUV SUD America, Inc. (TUV SUD) as an NRTL. TUV SUD’s expansion covers the addition of two recognized testing and certification sites 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, 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. TUVAM submitted an application, dated May 19, 2015 (OSHA–2007–0043– 0020), to expand its recognition to include the addition of two recognized testing and certification sites located at: TUV SUD, Ridlerstrasse 65, D–80339, Munich, Germany; and TUV SUD, Daimlerstrasse 11, D–85748, Garching, Signed at Washington, DC, on June 15, 2017.

OSHA staff performed a detailed analysis of the application and other pertinent information. OSHA staff also performed on-site reviews of TUVAM’s Munich testing and certification facility on June 6, 2016 and TUVAM’s Garching testing and certification facility on June 7, 2016 and recommended expansion of TUVAM’s recognition to include these two sites. OSHA published the preliminary notice announcing TUVAM’s expansion application in the Federal Register on March 9, 2017 (82 FR 13143). The Agency requested comments by March 24, 2017, but it received no comments in response to this notice. OSHA now is proceeding with this final notice to grant expansion of TUVAM’s scope of recognition. To obtain or review copies of all public documents pertaining to TUVAM’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–2007–0043 contains all materials in the record concerning TUVAM’s recognition. II. Final Decision and Order OSHA staff examined TUVAM’s expansion application, conducted two detailed on-site assessments, and examined other pertinent information. Based on its review of this evidence, OSHA finds that TUVAM 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 TUVAM’s scope of recognition. OSHA limits the expansion of TUVAM’s recognition to include the sites at TUVAM Munich, Munich, Germany and TUVAM Garching, Garching, Germany as listed above. OSHA’s recognition of these sites limits TUVAM 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 TUVAM’s scope of recognition. This limitation is consistent with the recognition that OSHA grants to other NRTLs that operate multiple sites. A. Conditions In addition to those conditions already required by 29 CFR 1910.7, TUVAM must abide by the following conditions of the recognition: 1. TUVAM must inform OSHA as soon as possible, in writing, of any change of ownership, facilities, or key personnel, and of any major change in E:\FR\FM\21JNN1.SGM 21JNN1 28360 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 118 / Wednesday, June 21, 2017 / Notices its operations as an NRTL, and provide details of the change(s); 2.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Notice of Final Decision

    OSHA hereby gives notice of the expansion of the scope of 
recognition of TUV SUD America, Inc. (TUV SUD) as an NRTL. TUV SUD's 
expansion covers the addition of two recognized testing and 
certification sites 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, 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.
    TUVAM submitted an application, dated May 19, 2015 (OSHA-2007-0043-
0020), to expand its recognition to include the addition of two 
recognized testing and certification sites located at: TUV SUD, 
Ridlerstrasse 65, D-80339, Munich, Germany; and TUV SUD, Daimlerstrasse 
11, D-85748, Garching, Germany. OSHA staff performed a detailed 
analysis of the application and other pertinent information. OSHA staff 
also performed on-site reviews of TUVAM's Munich testing and 
certification facility on June 6, 2016 and TUVAM's Garching testing and 
certification facility on June 7, 2016 and recommended expansion of 
TUVAM's recognition to include these two sites.
    OSHA published the preliminary notice announcing TUVAM's expansion 
application in the Federal Register on March 9, 2017 (82 FR 13143). The 
Agency requested comments by March 24, 2017, but it received no 
comments in response to this notice. OSHA now is proceeding with this 
final notice to grant expansion of TUVAM's scope of recognition.
    To obtain or review copies of all public documents pertaining to 
TUVAM'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-2007-0043 contains all materials in the record 
concerning TUVAM's recognition.

II. Final Decision and Order

    OSHA staff examined TUVAM's expansion application, conducted two 
detailed on-site assessments, and examined other pertinent information. 
Based on its review of this evidence, OSHA finds that TUVAM 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 TUVAM's scope of 
recognition. OSHA limits the expansion of TUVAM's recognition to 
include the sites at TUVAM Munich, Munich, Germany and TUVAM Garching, 
Garching, Germany as listed above. OSHA's recognition of these sites 
limits TUVAM 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 TUVAM's scope of recognition. This 
limitation is consistent with the recognition that OSHA grants to other 
NRTLs that operate multiple sites.

A. Conditions

    In addition to those conditions already required by 29 CFR 1910.7, 
TUVAM must abide by the following conditions of the recognition:
    1. TUVAM must inform OSHA as soon as possible, in writing, of any 
change of ownership, facilities, or key personnel, and of any major 
change in

[[Page 28360]]

its operations as an NRTL, and provide details of the change(s);
    2. TUVAM must meet all the terms of its recognition and comply with 
all OSHA policies pertaining to this recognition; and
    3. TUVAM must continue to meet the requirements for recognition, 
including all previously published conditions on TUVAM'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 TUVAM, subject to the limitation and conditions 
specified above.

III. Authority and Signature

    Dorothy Dougherty, Deputy Assistant Secretary of Labor for 
Occupational Safety and Health, 200 Constitution Avenue NW., 
Washington, DC 20210, authorized the preparation of this notice. 
Accordingly, the Agency is issuing this notice pursuant to 29 U.S.C. 
657(g)(2), Secretary of Labor's Order No. 1-2012 (77 FR 3912, Jan. 25, 
2012), and 29 CFR 1910.7.

    Signed at Washington, DC, on June 15, 2017.
