SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks to extend PRA authority for 
the Portable Fire Extinguishers Standard information collection 
codified in regulations 29 CFR 1910.157(e)(3). The Standard requires an 
Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSH Act) covered employer to 
subject each portable fire extinguisher to an annual maintenance 
inspection and to record the date of the inspection. The regulation 
requires the employer to retain the inspection record for one year 
after the last entry or for the life of the shell, whichever is less, 
and to make the record available to the OSHA on request. This 
recordkeeping requirement assures employees and OSHA compliance 
officers that any portable fire extinguisher located in the workplace 
will operate normally in case of fire; in addition, this requirement 
provides evidence to an OSHA compliance officer during an inspection 
that the employer performed the required maintenance checks on the 
portable fire extinguishers. OSH Act sections 2 and 8 authorize this 
information collection. See 29 U.S.C. 651, 657.
    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 1218-0238.
    OMB authorization for an ICR cannot be for more than three (3) 
years without renewal, and the current approval for this collection is 
scheduled to expire on July 31, 2017. 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 April 24, 2017 (82 FR 
18930).
    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 1218-0238. 
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.
