SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background: As requested by the USTR, the Commission will conduct an investigation and prepare a report that catalogs trade-related barriers that SMEs perceive as disproportionately affecting U.S. SMEs exporting to the UK, compared to larger U.S. exporters to the UK. In identifying these barriers to exporting, the USTR indicated in his letter that the Commission may consider information and definitions contained in the three Commission reports on SMEs released in 2010, the Commission report on Trade Barriers that U.S. Small- and Medium-sized Enterprises Perceive as Affecting Exports to the European Union released in 2014, any relevant literature, and information gathered from SMEs and others throughout the investigation. The letter also said that the report should cover barriers faced by U.S. SMEs exporting manufactured products, agricultural goods, and services, focusing primarily on barriers identified by U.S. SMEs that have experience in exporting to the UK either directly or through supply chains. The letter said that the investigation, to the degree practicable, should identify barriers by economic sector and should focus on sectors with high concentrations of SMEs. In addition, USTR asked that the Commission base its report on available information, including information furnished by SMEs and interested parties following the Commission’s notice of investigation. The USTR said that the Commission, to the extent applicable, should provide qualitative distinctions among the identified traderelated barriers. Additionally, the letter VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:56 Sep 05, 2018 Jkt 244001 said that the report may include suggestions gathered from SMEs or the relevant literature for actions that would help address some of the identified barriers and enhance the participation of U.S. SMEs in U.S.-UK trade.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Thomas Mockler or Christie Garner, Directorate of Standards and Guidance, OSHA, U.S. Department of Labor, telephone (202) 693–2222. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background The Department of Labor, as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent (i.e., employer) burden, conducts a preclearance process to provide the public with an opportunity to comment on proposed and continuing information collection requirements in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA–95) (44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)). This program ensures that information is in the desired format, the reporting burden (time and costs) is minimal, the collection instruments are clearly understood, and OSHA’s estimate of the information collection burden is accurate. The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (OSH Act) (29 U.S.C. 651 et seq.) authorizes information collection by employers as necessary or appropriate for enforcement of the OSH Act or for developing information regarding the causes and prevention of occupational injuries, illnesses, and accidents (see 29 U.S.C. 657). The OSH Act also requires OSHA to obtain such information with a minimum burden upon employers, especially those operating small businesses, and to reduce to the maximum extent feasible unnecessary duplication of effort in obtaining said information (see 29 U.S.C. 657). II. Special Issues for Comment OSHA has a particular interest in comments on the following issues: • Whether the proposed information collection requirements are necessary PO 00000 Frm 00078 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 45283 for the proper performance of the agency’s functions, including whether the information is useful; • The accuracy of OSHA’s estimate of the burden (time and costs) of the information collection requirements, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; • The quality, utility, and clarity of the information collected; and • Ways to minimize the burden on employers who must comply—for example, by using automated or other technological information collection and transmission techniques. The information collection requirements specified in the Cadmium in General Industry Standard protect workers from the adverse health effects that may result from their exposure to cadmium. The major information collection requirements of the standard include: conducting worker exposure monitoring, notifying workers of their cadmium exposures, implementing a written compliance program, implementing medical surveillance of workers, providing examining physicians with specific information, ensuring that workers receive a copy of their medical surveillance results, maintaining workers’ exposure monitoring and medical surveillance records for specific periods, and providing access to these records to the workers who are the subject of the records, the worker’s representative, and other designated parties. The agency is requesting a burden hour adjustment decrease of 2,636 (from 75,998 to 73,362 hours). The agency estimates a decrease of exposed workers in the cross-industry sectors as well as in the specific-industry sectors. On the other hand, the number of plants is estimated to increase slightly in both sectors. As a result, the operation and maintenance costs have increased from $4,799,475 to $5,453,858, a total increase of $654,383, due to increased costs for exposure monitoring sampling and medical exams. III. Proposed Actions Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection. Title: Cadmium in General Industry (29 CFR 1910.1027). OMB Control Number: 1218–0185. Affected Public: Business or other forprofits. Number of Respondents: 50,679. Frequency: On occasion; Quarterly; Biennially; Semi-annually; Annually. Average Time per Response: Varies. Estimated Number of Responses: 208,899. Estimated Total Burden Hours: 73,362. E:\FR\FM\06SEN1.SGM 06SEN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
    Background: As requested by the USTR, the Commission will conduct 
an investigation and prepare a report that catalogs trade-related 
barriers that SMEs perceive as disproportionately affecting U.S. SMEs 
exporting to the UK, compared to larger U.S. exporters to the UK. In 
identifying these barriers to exporting, the USTR indicated in his 
letter that the Commission may consider information and definitions 
contained in the three Commission reports on SMEs released in 2010, the 
Commission report on Trade Barriers that U.S. Small- and Medium-sized 
Enterprises Perceive as Affecting Exports to the European Union 
released in 2014, any relevant literature, and information gathered 
from SMEs and others throughout the investigation. The letter also said 
that the report should cover barriers faced by U.S. SMEs exporting 
manufactured products, agricultural goods, and services, focusing 
primarily on barriers identified by U.S. SMEs that have experience in 
exporting to the UK either directly or through supply chains. The 
letter said that the investigation, to the degree practicable, should 
identify barriers by economic sector and should focus on sectors with 
high concentrations of SMEs.
    In addition, USTR asked that the Commission base its report on 
available information, including information furnished by SMEs and 
interested parties following the Commission's notice of investigation. 
The USTR said that the Commission, to the extent applicable, should 
provide qualitative distinctions among the identified trade-related 
barriers. Additionally, the letter said that the report may include 
suggestions gathered from SMEs or the relevant literature for actions 
that would help address some of the identified barriers and enhance the 
participation of U.S. SMEs in U.S.-UK trade. As requested, the 
Commission expects to transmit its report to the USTR by July 31, 2019.
