SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks to extend PRA authority for the Escape and Evacuation Plans information collection requirements codified in regulations 30 CFR 57.11053, which requires the development of an escape and evacuation plan specifically addressing the unique conditions of each underground metal and nonmetal mine and requires that revisions be made as mining progresses. The plan must be available to MSHA representatives and conspicuously posted at locations convenient to all persons on the surface VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:40 Aug 29, 2017 Jkt 241001 and underground. The mine operator and the MSHA are required jointly to review the plan at least once every six months. Federal Mine Safety and Health Act of 1977, as amended section 103(h) authorizes this information collection. See 30 U.S.C. 813(h). 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 1219–0046. 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 August 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Notice of the Application for Expansion The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is providing notice that Intertek Testing Services NA, Inc. (ITSNA), is applying for expansion of its current recognition as a NRTL. ITSNA requests the addition of seven test standards to its NRTL scope of recognition. OSHA recognition of a 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 41293 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 a 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 ITSNA, 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. ITSNA currently has fourteen facilities (sites) recognized by OSHA for product testing and certification, with its headquarters located at: Intertek Testing Services NA, Inc., 545 East Algonquin Road, Suite F, Arlington Heights, Illinois 60005. A complete list of ITSNA’s scope of recognition is available at https://www.osha.gov/dts/ otpca/nrtl/its.html. II. General Background on the Application ITSNA submitted an application, dated April 21, 2015 (OSHA–2007– 0039–0026), to expand its recognition to include seven additional test standards.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Notice of the Application for Expansion

    The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is providing 
notice that Intertek Testing Services NA, Inc. (ITSNA), is applying for 
expansion of its current recognition as a NRTL. ITSNA requests the 
addition of seven test standards to its NRTL scope of recognition.
    OSHA recognition of a 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 product-
certification 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 a NRTL for initial recognition 
and for an expansion or renewal of this recognition, following

notices set forth the NRTL's scope of recognition or modifications of 
that scope. OSHA maintains an informational Web page for each NRTL, 
including ITSNA, 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.
