SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks to extend PRA authority for the Powered Platforms for Building Maintenance Standard information collection. Requirements codified in regulations 29 CFR 1910.66 provide that an Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSH Act) covered employer subject to the Standard develop and implement a written emergency action plan for each type of powered platform operation. The plan must explain the emergency procedures to follow upon encountering a disruption of the power supply, equipment failure, or other emergency. More specifically, the Standard requires the employer to develop and maintain a written emergency action plan and work plan for training; affix a load rating plate to each suspended unit; label each emergency electric operating device with instructions for use; attach a tag to one of the fastenings holding a suspension wire rope; and prepare and maintain a written certification record of the inspection and testing of each building-support structure component of a powered platform, powered platform facility, and suspension wire rope. 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 PO 00000 Frm 00103 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 45897 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 1218–0121.

AGENCY: In this notice, OSHA announces its final decision to expand the scope of recognition for TUV Rheinland of North America, Inc., as a Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL). DATES: The expansion of the scope of recognition takes place on October 2, 2017. SUMMARY: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Information regarding this notice is available from the following sources: Press inquiries: Contact Mr. Frank Meilinger, Director, OSHA Office of Communications, U.S. Department of Labor, 200 Constitution Avenue NW., Room N–3647, Washington, DC 20210; telephone: (202) 693–1999; email: meilinger.francis2@dol.gov. General and technical information: Contact Mr. Kevin Robinson, Director, Office of Technical Programs and Coordination Activities, Directorate of Technical Support and Emergency Management, Occupational Safety and Health Administration, U.S. Department of Labor, 200 Constitution Avenue NW., Room N–3655, Washington, DC 20210; telephone: (202) 693–2110; email: robinson.kevin@dol.gov. OSHA’s Web page includes information about the NRTL Program (see http:// www.osha.gov/dts/otpca/nrtl/ index.html). SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Notice of Final Decision OSHA hereby gives notice of the expansion of the scope of recognition of TUV Rheinland of North America, Inc. (TUVRNA), as a NRTL. TUVRNA’s expansion covers the addition of one test standard to its scope of recognition. OSHA recognition of a NRTL signifies that the organization meets the requirements specified by 29 CFR 1910.7. Recognition is an PO 00000 Frm 00104 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 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 of the products. The Agency processes applications by a 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. TUVRNA submitted an application, dated July 15, 2016 (OSHA–2007–0042– 0024), to expand its recognition to include one additional test standard. OSHA staff performed a comparability analysis and reviewed other pertinent information. OSHA did not perform any on-site reviews in relation to this application. OSHA published the preliminary notice announcing TUVRNA’s expansion application in the Federal Register on May 22, 2017 (82 FR 22314). The Agency requested comments by June 6, 2017, but it received no comments in response to this notice. OSHA now is proceeding with this final notice to grant expansion of TUVRNA’s scope of recognition. To obtain or review copies of all public documents pertaining to TUVRNA’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–3655, Washington, DC 20210. Docket No. OSHA–2007–0042 contains all materials in the record concerning TUVRNA’s recognition. II. Final Decision and Order OSHA staff examined TUVRNA’s expansion application, its capability to meet the requirements of the test standards, and other pertinent information.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks to extend PRA authority for 
the Powered Platforms for Building Maintenance Standard information 
collection. Requirements codified in regulations 29 CFR 1910.66 provide 
that an Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSH Act) covered employer 
subject to the Standard develop and implement a written emergency 
action plan for each type of powered platform operation. The plan must 
explain the emergency procedures to follow upon encountering a 
disruption of the power supply, equipment failure, or other emergency. 
More specifically, the Standard requires the employer to develop and 
maintain a written emergency action plan and work plan for training; 
affix a load rating plate to each suspended unit; label each emergency 
electric operating device with instructions for use; attach a tag to 
one of the fastenings holding a suspension wire rope; and prepare and 
maintain a written certification record of the inspection and testing 
of each building-support structure component of a powered platform, 
powered platform facility, and suspension wire rope. 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 1218-0121.
    OMB authorization for an ICR cannot be for more than three (3) 
years without renewal. 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 May 22, 2017 (82 FR 23312).
    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 1218-0121. 
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.
