SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Notice of the Application for Expansion The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is providing notice that TUV Rheinland of North America, Inc., is applying for expansion of its current recognition as an NRTL. TUVRNA requests the addition of one test standard to its NRTL scope of recognition. TUVRNA is further requesting the removal of a recognized test standard from 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 TUVRNA, 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. TUVRNA currently has five facilities (sites) recognized by OSHA for product testing and certification, with its E:\FR\FM\27JYN1.SGM 27JYN1
