Notice of Final Decision OSHA hereby gives notice of the expansion of the scope of recognition of Intertek Testing Services NA, Inc. (ITSNA), as a NRTL. ITSNA’s expansion covers the addition of seven test standards 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 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. ITSNA submitted an application, dated April 21, 2015, (OSHA–2007– 0039–0026) to expand its recognition to include seven additional test standards. OSHA staff conducted a detailed analysis of the application packet and reviewed other pertinent information. OSHA did not perform any on-site reviews in relation to this application. OSHA published the preliminary notice announcing ITSNA’s expansion application in the Federal Register on August 30, 2017 (82 FR 41292). The Agency requested comments by September 15, 2017, but it received no comments in response to this notice. OSHA now is proceeding with this final notice to grant expansion of ITSNA’s scope of recognition.

Final Decision and Order OSHA staff examined ITSNA’s expansion application, its capability to meet the requirements of the test standards, and other pertinent information. Based on its review of this evidence, OSHA finds that ITSNA meets the requirements of 29 CFR 1910.7 for expansion of its recognition, subject to the specified limitation and conditions listed below. OSHA, therefore, is 56271 proceeding with this final notice to grant ITSNA’s scope of recognition.

Contact ANSI to determine whether a test standard is currently ANSI-approved. A. Conditions In addition to those conditions already required by 29 CFR 1910.7, ITSNA must abide by the following conditions of the recognition: 1. ITSNA must inform OSHA as soon as possible, in writing, of any change of ownership, facilities, or key personnel, and of any major change in its operations as a 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 Intertek Testing Services NA, Inc. (ITSNA), as a NRTL. 
ITSNA's expansion covers the addition of seven test standards 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 
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.
    ITSNA submitted an application, dated April 21, 2015, (OSHA-2007-
0039-0026) to expand its recognition to include seven additional test 
standards. OSHA staff conducted a detailed analysis of the application 
packet and reviewed other pertinent information. OSHA did not perform 
any on-site reviews in relation to this application.
    OSHA published the preliminary notice announcing ITSNA's expansion 
application in the Federal Register on August 30, 2017 (82 FR 41292). 
The Agency requested comments by September 15, 2017, but it received no 
comments in response to this notice. OSHA now is proceeding with this 
final notice to grant expansion of ITSNA's scope of recognition.

concerning ITSNA's recognition.

II. Final Decision and Order

    OSHA staff examined ITSNA's expansion application, its capability 
to meet the requirements of the test standards, and other pertinent 
information. Based on its review of this evidence, OSHA finds that 
ITSNA meets the requirements of 29 CFR 1910.7 for expansion of its 
recognition, subject to the specified limitation and conditions listed 
below. OSHA, therefore, is proceeding with this final notice to grant 
ITSNA's scope of recognition. OSHA limits the expansion of ITSNA's 
recognition to testing and certification of products for demonstration 
of conformance to the test standards listed in Table 1 below.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    OSHA's recognition of any NRTL for a particular test standard is 
limited to equipment or materials for which OSHA standards require 
third-party testing and certification before using them in the 
workplace. Consequently, if a test standard also covers any products 
for which OSHA does not require such testing and certification, a 
NRTL's scope of recognition does not include these products.
    The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) may approve the 
test standards listed above as American National Standards. However, 
for convenience, we may use the designation of the standards-developing 
organization for the standard as opposed to the ANSI designation. Under 
the NRTL Program's policy (see OSHA Instruction CPL 1-0.3, Appendix C, 
paragraph XIV), any NRTL recognized for a particular test standard may 
use either the proprietary version of the test standard or the ANSI 
version of that standard. Contact ANSI to determine whether a test 
standard is currently ANSI-approved.

A. Conditions

    In addition to those conditions already required by 29 CFR 1910.7, 
ITSNA must abide by the following conditions of the recognition:
    1. ITSNA must inform OSHA as soon as possible, in writing, of any 
change of ownership, facilities, or key personnel, and of any major 
change in its operations as a NRTL, and provide details of the 
change(s);
    2. ITSNA must meet all the terms of its recognition and comply with 
all OSHA policies pertaining to this recognition; and
    3. ITSNA must continue to meet the requirements for recognition, 
including all previously published conditions on ITSNA'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 
scope of recognition of ITSNA, subject to the limitation and conditions 
specified above.

III. Authority and Signature

    Loren Sweatt, Deputy Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational 
Safety and Health, authorized the preparation of this notice.
