OSHA’s web page includes information about the NRTL Program (see http:// www.osha.gov/dts/otpca/nrtl/ index.html). SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: amozie on DSK3GDR082PROD with NOTICES1 SUMMARY: I. Notice of Final Decision OSHA hereby gives notice of the expansion of the scope of recognition of Underwriters Laboratories, Inc., as a NRTL. UL’s expansion covers the addition of 26 test standards to its scope of recognition. OSHA recognition of a NRTL signifies that the organization meets the requirements specified by 29 CFR 1910.7. Recognition is an acknowledgment that the organization can perform independent safety testing and certification of the specific products covered within the scope of recognition and is not a delegation or grant of government authority. As a result of recognition, employers may use products properly approved by the NRTL to meet OSHA standards that require testing and certification of the products. The agency processes applications by a NRTL for initial recognition, or for expansion or renewal of this recognition, following requirements in Appendix A to 29 CFR 1910.7. This appendix requires the Agency publish two notices in the Federal Register in processing an application. In the first notice, OSHA announces the application and provides a preliminary finding and, in the second notice, the Agency provides the final decision on the application. These notices set forth the NRTL’s scope of recognition or modifications of that scope. OSHA maintains an informational web page for each NRTL that details its scope of recognition. These pages are available from the agency’s website at http:// www.osha.gov/dts/otpca/nrtl/ index.html. UL submitted an application, dated May 31, 2017, (OSHA–2009–0025–0020) to expand its recognition to include 26 additional test standards. This application was updated on November 1, 2017, (OSHA–2009–0025–0021) to include an additional standard, for a total of 27 standards. OSHA determined that one of the standards requested in UL’s application, UL 2703, ‘‘Standard for Mounting System, Mounting Devices, Clamping/Retention Devices, and Ground Lugs for Use with Flat-Plate Photovoltaic Modules and Panels,’’ does not meet the requirements for an appropriate test standard in 29 CFR 1910.7; indeed, this standard is not included on the NRTL Program’s List of Appropriate Test Standards. The types of products covered by UL 2703 do not fit into any of the categories covered by OSHA’s NRTL Program. Specifically, the standard covers mechanical products, while OSHA’s NRTL Program addresses mainly electrical end products. Accordingly, OSHA declines to add UL 2703 to the NRTL Program’s List of Appropriate Test Standards and rejects UL’s application to add the standard to its scope of recognition. OSHA staff performed a detailed analysis of the application packet and reviewed other pertinent information. OSHA did not perform any on-site reviews in relation to this application. OSHA published the preliminary notice announcing UL’s expansion application in the Federal Register on April 20, 2018, (83 FR 17568). The agency requested comments by May 7, 2018, but it received no timely comments in response to this notice. OSHA is now proceeding with this final notice to grant expansion of UL’s scope of recognition. To obtain or review copies of all public documents pertaining to UL’s application, go to http:// www.regulations.gov or contact the Docket Office, Occupational Safety and Health Administration, U.S. Department of Labor, 200 Constitution Avenue NW, Room N–3653, Washington, DC 20210. Docket No. OSHA–2009–0025 contains all materials in the record concerning UL’s recognition. II. Final Decision and Order OSHA staff examined UL’s expansion application, capability to meet the requirements of the test standards, and other pertinent information. Based on a review of this evidence, OSHA finds that UL meets the requirements of 29 CFR 1910.7 for expansion of its recognition, subject to the specified limitation and conditions listed below. OSHA, therefore, is proceeding with this final notice to grant UL’s scope of recognition. OSHA limits the expansion of UL’s recognition to testing and certification of products for demonstration of conformance to the test standards listed, below in Table 1.

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 use 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. 3. UL must continue to meet the requirements for recognition, including all previously published conditions on UL’s scope of recognition, in all areas for which it has recognition. Pursuant to the authority in 29 CFR 1910.7, OSHA hereby expands the scope of recognition of UL, subject to the limitation and conditions specified above.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Notice of Final Decision

    OSHA hereby gives notice of the expansion of the scope of 
recognition of Underwriters Laboratories, Inc., as a NRTL. UL's 
expansion covers the addition of 26 test standards to its scope of 
recognition.
    OSHA recognition of a NRTL signifies that the organization meets 
the requirements specified by 29 CFR 1910.7. Recognition is an 
acknowledgment that the organization can perform independent safety 
testing and certification of the specific products covered within the 
scope of recognition and is not a delegation or grant of government 
authority. As a result of recognition, employers may use products 
properly approved by the NRTL to meet OSHA standards that require 
testing and certification of the products.
    The agency processes applications by a NRTL for initial 
recognition, or for expansion or renewal of this recognition, following 
requirements in Appendix A to 29 CFR 1910.7. This appendix requires the 
Agency publish two notices in the Federal Register in processing an 
application. In the first notice, OSHA announces the application and 
provides a preliminary finding and, in the second notice, the Agency 
provides the final decision on the application. These notices set forth 
the NRTL's scope of recognition or modifications of that scope. OSHA 
maintains an informational web page for each NRTL that details its 
scope of recognition. These pages are available from the agency's 
website at http://www.osha.gov/dts/otpca/nrtl/index.html.
    UL submitted an application, dated May 31, 2017, (OSHA-2009-0025-
0020) to expand its recognition to include 26 additional test 
standards. This application was updated on November 1, 2017, (OSHA-
2009-0025-0021) to include an additional standard, for a total of 27 
standards. OSHA determined that one of the standards requested in UL's 
application, UL 2703, ``Standard for Mounting System, Mounting Devices, 
Clamping/Retention Devices, and Ground Lugs for Use with Flat-Plate 
Photovoltaic Modules and Panels,'' does not meet the requirements for 
an appropriate test standard in 29 CFR 1910.7; indeed, this standard is 
not included on the NRTL Program's List of Appropriate Test Standards. 
The types of products covered by UL 2703 do not fit into any of the 
categories covered by OSHA's NRTL Program. Specifically, the standard 
covers mechanical products, while OSHA's NRTL Program addresses mainly 
electrical end products. Accordingly, OSHA declines to add UL 2703 to 
the NRTL Program's List of Appropriate Test Standards and rejects UL's 
application to add the standard to its scope of recognition. OSHA staff 
performed a detailed analysis of the application packet and reviewed 
other pertinent information. OSHA did not perform any on-site reviews 
in relation to this application.
    OSHA published the preliminary notice announcing UL's expansion 
application in the Federal Register on April 20, 2018, (83 FR 17568). 
The agency requested comments by May 7, 2018, but it received no timely 
comments in response to this notice. OSHA is now proceeding with this 
final notice to grant expansion of UL's scope of recognition.
    To obtain or review copies of all public documents pertaining to 
UL's application, go to http://www.regulations.gov or contact the 
Docket Office, Occupational Safety and Health Administration, U.S. 
Department of Labor, 200 Constitution Avenue NW, Room N-3653, 
Washington, DC 20210. Docket No. OSHA-2009-0025 contains all materials 
in the record concerning UL's recognition.

II. Final Decision and Order

    OSHA staff examined UL's expansion application, capability to meet 
the requirements of the test standards, and other pertinent 
information. Based on a review of this evidence, OSHA finds that UL 
meets the requirements of 29 CFR 1910.7 for expansion of its 
recognition, subject to the specified limitation and conditions listed 
below. OSHA, therefore, is proceeding with this final notice to grant 
UL's scope of recognition. OSHA limits the expansion of UL's 
recognition to testing and certification of products for demonstration 
of conformance to the test standards listed, below in Table 1.

    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 use 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.

A. Conditions

    In addition to those conditions already required by 29 CFR 1910.7, 
UL must abide by the following conditions of the recognition:
    1. UL must inform OSHA as soon as possible, in writing, of any 
change of ownership, facilities, or key personnel, and of any major 
change in its operations as a NRTL, and provide details of the 
change(s);
    2. UL must meet all the terms of its recognition and comply with 
all OSHA policies pertaining to this recognition; and
    3. UL must continue to meet the requirements for recognition, 
including all previously published conditions on UL's scope of 
recognition, in all areas for which it has recognition.
    Pursuant to the authority in 29 CFR 1910.7, OSHA hereby expands the 
scope of recognition of UL, subject to the limitation and conditions 
specified above.
