SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks to extend PRA authority for the Acrylonitrile (AN) Standard information collection requirements codified in regulations 29 CFR 1910.1045. The Standard is an occupational safety and health standard that protects workers from the adverse health effects that may result from exposure to AN. The AN Standard information collection requirements are essential components that protect workers from occupational exposure. Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (OSH Act) covered employers subject to the Standard and employees use the information to implement the protection the Standard requires. The information collections contained in the AN Standard include notifying a worker of AN exposures; a written compliance program; a worker medical surveillance program; and the development, maintenance, and disclosure of workers’ exposure monitoring and medical records. OSH Act sections 2(b) (9), 6, and 8(c) authorize this information collection. See 29 U.S.C. 651(b)(9), 655, and 657(c). ADDRESSES: PO 00000 Frm 00083 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 27027 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 1218–0126. 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 June 30, 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 notice published in the Federal Register on March 8, 2018 (83 FR 9868). 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 1218–0126. 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks to extend PRA authority for 
the Acrylonitrile (AN) Standard information collection requirements 
codified in regulations 29 CFR 1910.1045. The Standard is an 
occupational safety and health standard that protects workers from the 
adverse health effects that may result from exposure to AN. The AN 
Standard information collection requirements are essential components 
that protect workers from occupational exposure. Occupational Safety 
and Health Act of 1970 (OSH Act) covered employers subject to the 
Standard and employees use the information to implement the protection 
the Standard requires. The information collections contained in the AN 
Standard include notifying a worker of AN exposures; a written 
compliance program; a worker medical surveillance program; and the 
development, maintenance, and disclosure of workers' exposure 
monitoring and medical records. OSH Act sections 2(b) (9), 6, and 8(c) 
authorize this information collection. See 29 U.S.C. 651(b)(9), 655, 
and 657(c).
    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 1218-0126.
    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 June 30, 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 
notice published in the Federal Register on March 8, 2018 (83 FR 9868).
    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 1218-0126. 
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.
