SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: DOL, as part of its continuing efforts to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, conducts a pre-clearance consultation program to provide the general public and Federal agencies an opportunity to comment on proposed and/or continuing collections of information before submitting them to OMB for final approval. This program helps to ensure requested data can be provided in the desired format, reporting burden (time and financial resources) is minimized, collection instruments are clearly understood, and the impact of collection requirements can be properly assessed. ETA has requested that OMB approve an Information Collection Request pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act. If approved, this request will enable ETA to collect essential data under Training and Employment Notice (TEN) No. 3–18 concerning the operational characteristics of certain industry-recognized apprenticeship programs that are being established under the statutory authority of the Act (located at 29 U.S.C. 50).1 On June 15, 2017, President Trump issued Executive Order 13801, entitled ‘‘Expanding Apprenticeships in America,’’ which directed the Secretary of Labor (in consultation with the Secretaries of Education and Commerce) 1 Please note that the projected duties of program ‘‘certifiers’’ (as referenced in TEN 3–18) in assessing the quality and rigor of industry-recognized apprenticeship programs are the same job functions traditionally performed by accreditation bodies. Accreditation is a statement from an accreditation body—an independent organization that oversees the development of voluntary consensus standards—declaring that another entity offering credentials, education, and/or training within a program (such as an industry-recognized apprenticeship program) has met specified certification standards. Additional information on accreditation bodies can be found at the website of the American National Standards Institute: https:// www.standardsportal.org/usa_en/resources/ USaccreditation_bodies.aspx. The Department intends to elaborate further upon these accreditation duties in amending 29 CFR part 29. E:\FR\FM\20SEN1.SGM 20SEN1
