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 1218–0011.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks to extend PRA authority for 
the General Provisions and Confined and Enclosed Spaces and Other 
Dangerous Atmospheres in Shipyard Employment Standards information 
collection requirements codified in regulations 29 CFR part 1915. 
Regulations implementing the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSH 
Act) require an employer who is subject to the Standards: (1) To ensure 
a competent person conducts inspections and atmospheric testing prior 
to a worker entering a confined or enclosed space (Sec.  1915.12(a)-
(c)); (2) to warn workers not to enter a hazardous space or other 
dangerous atmosphere (Sec. Sec.  1915.12 (a)-(c), 1915.16); (3) to 
train a worker who will be entering a confined or enclosed space and 
certify such training has been provided (Sec.  1915.12(d)); (4) to 
establish and train shipyard rescue teams or arrange for outside rescue 
teams and provide them with information (Sec.  1915.12(e)); (5) to 
ensure one person on each rescue team maintains a current first aid 
training certificate (Sec.  1915.12(e)); (6) to exchange information 
regarding hazards, safety rules, and emergency procedures concerning 
these spaces and atmospheres with other employers whose workers may 
enter these spaces and atmospheres (Sec.  1915.12(f)); (7) to ensure 
testing of a space having contained a combustible or flammable liquid 
or gas or toxic, corrosive, or irritating substance, or other dangerous 
atmosphere, boundary or pipeline before cleaning or other cold work is 
started and, as necessary thereafter, while the operation is ongoing 
(Sec.  1915.13(b)(2) and (4)); (8) to post signs prohibiting ignition 
sources within or near a space that contains bulk quantities of a 
flammable or combustible liquid or gas (Sec.  1915.13(b)(10)); (9) to 
ensure a confined or enclosed space is tested before a worker performs 
hot work in the work area (Sec.  1915.14(a)); (10) to post warnings of 
testing conducted by a competent person and certificates of testing 
conducted by a Marine Chemist or Coast Guard authorized person in the 
immediate vicinity of the hot-work operation while the operation is in 
progress (Sec.  1915.14(a) and (b)); and (11) to retain the certificate 
of testing on file for at least three months after completing the 
operation (Sec.  1915.14(a)(2)). OSH Act sections 2(b), 6, and 8 
authorize this information collection. See 29 U.S.C. 651(b), 655, and 
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 1218-0011.
    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 March 31, 2018. 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
