TABLE 2—TEST STANDARDS OSHA IS ADDING TO THE NRTL PROGRAM’S LIST OF APPROPRIATE TEST STANDARDS Test standard Test standard title ISA 60079–25 ... UL 60079–26 .... UL 60079–28 .... UL 60079–31 .... Standard Standard Standard Standard for for for for Explosive Explosive Explosive Explosive Atmospheres—Part Atmospheres—Part Atmospheres—Part Atmospheres—Part 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, the use of the designation of the standards-developing organization for the standard as opposed to the ANSI designation may occur. 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. amozie on DSK3GDR082PROD with NOTICES1 A.

SUMMARY: The Executive Office of the President seeks input from across 
sectors and disciplines on capabilities that already exist as well as 
key considerations in pursuing the Government Effectiveness Advanced 
Research (GEAR) Center initiative through a request for information 
(RFI) now available on www.Performance.gov/GEARcenter.
    The Federal Government intends to pursue a Government Effectiveness 
Advanced Research (GEAR) Center, which would be a public-private 
partnership focused on applied research that improves mission delivery, 
citizen services, and stewardship of public resources, as proposed in 
Delivering Government Solutions for the 21st Century: Reform Plan and 
Reorganization Recommendations. This non-governmental, public-private 
partnership would address operational and strategic challenges facing

researchers, academics, non-profits, and private industry across an 
array of disciplines, such as data science, organizational behavior, 
and user-centered design.
    Through applied research and live pilot testing, the GEAR Center 
would connect cutting-edge thinking with real-world challenges the 
Federal Government faces in serving Americans in the Digital Age. This 
means re-imagining possibilities for how citizens interact with the 
Government; rethinking the delivery of citizen services and data; 
reforming core processes (e.g., procurement, budget, IT investment and 
capital allocation); and exploring how the public-sector workforce can 
be developed, reskilled and redeployed in creative ways.
