SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Notice of the Application for Expansion OSHA is providing notice that CSA is applying for expansion of current recognition as a NRTL. CSA requests the addition of one test standard to NRTL scope of recognition. OSHA recognition of a NRTL signifies that the organization meets the requirements specified in 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. Each NRTL’s scope of recognition includes (1) the type of products the NRTL may test, with each type specified by the applicable test standard; and (2) the recognized site(s) that has/have the technical capability to perform the product-testing and productcertification activities for test standards within the NRTL’s scope. Recognition is not a delegation or grant of government authority; however, recognition enables employers to use products approved by the NRTL to meet OSHA standards that require product testing and certification. The agency processes an application by a NRTL for initial recognition and for an expansion or renewal of this recognition, following requirements in Appendix A, 29 CFR 1910.7. This appendix requires that 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. In the second notice, the agency provides 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, including CSA, which details the NRTL’s scope of recognition. These pages are available from the OSHA website at http://www.osha.gov/ dts/otpca/nrtl/index.html. CSA currently has six facilities (sites) recognized by OSHA for product testing and certification. Canadian Standards Association is located at, 178 Rexdale Boulevard, Etobicoke, Ontario, M9W 1R3, Canada. A complete list of CSA’s scope of recognition is available at https://www.osha.gov/dts/otpca/nrtl/ csa.html. II. General Background on the Application CSA submitted an application, dated May 23, 2017 (OSHA–2006–0042–0012), to expand recognition to include seven additional test standards. 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 a Federal Register notice (82 FR 60051) announcing this application, but referenced one incorrect standard in the listing of appropriate test standards (UL 498A). OSHA further published a Federal Register notice (83 FR 22289) granting recognition for the six additional standards requested in the application. This notice revises the previous Federal Register notice for the one remaining standard (UL 498A). UL 498A is already included in the list of appropriate test standards and in CSA’s scope of recognition. Table 1 lists the appropriate test standard found in CSA’s application for expansion for testing and certification of products under the NRTL Program. TABLE 1—PROPOSED LIST OF APPROPRIATE TEST STANDARD FOR INCLUSION IN CSA’S NRTL SCOPE OF RECOGNITION Test standard UL 489A * ........................ Test standard title Standard for Circuit Breakers for Use in Communications Equipment. * Represents the standard that OSHA proposes to add to the NRTL Program’s List of Appropriate Test Standards. III. Proposal To Add New Test Standard to the NRTL Program’s List of Appropriate Test Standards Periodically, OSHA will propose to add new test standards to the NRTL List of Appropriate Test Standards following an evaluation of the test standard document. To qualify as an appropriate test standard, the agency evaluates the document to (1) verify it represents a product category for which OSHA requires certification by a NRTL, (2) verify the document represents an end product and not a component, and (3) verify the document defines safety test specifications (not installation or operational performance specifications). In this notice, OSHA proposes to add one new test standard to the NRTL Program’s List of Appropriate Test Standards. Table 2 lists the test standard that is new to the NRTL Program. OSHA preliminarily determined that this test standard is an appropriate test standard and proposes to include it in the NRTL Program’s List of Appropriate Test Standards. OSHA seeks public comment on this preliminary determination.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Notice of the Application for Expansion

    OSHA is providing notice that CSA is applying for expansion of 
current recognition as a NRTL. CSA requests the addition of one test 
standard to NRTL scope of recognition.
    OSHA recognition of a NRTL signifies that the organization meets 
the requirements specified in 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. Each NRTL's scope of recognition includes (1) the 
type of products the NRTL may test, with each type specified by the 
applicable test standard; and (2) the recognized site(s) that has/have 
the technical capability to perform the product-testing and product-
certification activities for test standards within the NRTL's scope. 
Recognition is not a delegation or grant of government authority; 
however, recognition enables employers to use products approved by the 
NRTL to meet OSHA standards that require product testing and 
certification.
    The agency processes an application by a NRTL for initial 
recognition and for an expansion or renewal of this recognition, 
following requirements in Appendix A, 29 CFR 1910.7. This appendix 
requires that 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. In the second notice, 
the agency provides 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, 
including CSA, which details the NRTL's scope of recognition. These 
pages are available from the OSHA website at http://www.osha.gov/dts/otpca/nrtl/index.html.
    CSA currently has six facilities (sites) recognized by OSHA for 
product testing and certification. Canadian Standards Association is 
located at, 178 Rexdale Boulevard, Etobicoke, Ontario, M9W 1R3, Canada. 
A complete list of CSA's scope of recognition is available at https://www.osha.gov/dts/otpca/nrtl/csa.html.

II. General Background on the Application

    CSA submitted an application, dated May 23, 2017 (OSHA-2006-0042-
0012), to expand recognition to include seven additional test 
standards. 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 a 
Federal Register notice (82 FR 60051) announcing this application, but 
referenced one incorrect standard in the listing of appropriate test 
standards (UL 498A). OSHA further published a Federal Register notice 
(83 FR 22289) granting recognition for the six additional standards 
requested in the application. This notice revises the previous Federal 
Register notice for the one remaining standard (UL 498A). UL 498A is 
already included in the list of appropriate test standards and in CSA's 
scope of recognition.
    Table 1 lists the appropriate test standard found in CSA's 
application for expansion for testing and certification of products 
under the NRTL Program.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
* Represents the standard that OSHA proposes to add to the NRTL
  Program's List of Appropriate Test Standards.

III. Proposal To Add New Test Standard to the NRTL Program's List of 
Appropriate Test Standards

    Periodically, OSHA will propose to add new test standards to the 
NRTL List of Appropriate Test Standards following an evaluation of the 
test standard document. To qualify as an appropriate test standard, the 
agency evaluates the document to (1) verify it represents a product 
category for which OSHA requires certification by a NRTL, (2) verify 
the document represents an end product and not a component, and (3) 
verify the document defines safety test specifications (not 
installation or operational performance specifications).
    In this notice, OSHA proposes to add one new test standard to the 
NRTL Program's List of Appropriate Test Standards. Table 2 lists the 
test standard that is new to the NRTL Program. OSHA preliminarily 
determined that this test standard is an appropriate test standard and 
proposes to include it in the NRTL Program's List of Appropriate Test 
Standards. OSHA seeks public comment on this preliminary determination.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

IV. Preliminary Findings on the Application

    CSA submitted an acceptable application for expansion of scope of 
recognition. OSHA's review of the application file, and pertinent 
documentation, indicate that CSA can meet the requirements prescribed 
by 29 CFR 1910.7 for expanding recognition to include the addition of 
this one test standard for NRTL testing and certification listed above. 
This preliminary finding does not constitute an interim or temporary 
approval of CSA's application.
    OSHA welcomes public comment as to whether CSA meets the 
requirements of 29 CFR 1910.7 for expansion of recognition as a NRTL. 
Comments should consist of pertinent written

requester justifies a longer period. OSHA may deny a request for an 
extension if the request is not adequately justified. To obtain or 
review copies of the exhibits identified in this notice, as well as 
comments submitted to the docket, contact the Docket Office, at the 
above address. These materials also are available online at http://www.regulations.gov under Docket No. OSHA-2006-0042.
    OSHA staff will review all comments to the docket submitted in a 
timely manner and, after addressing the issues raised by these 
comments, will make a recommendation to the Assistant Secretary for 
Occupational Safety and Health whether to grant CSA's application for 
expansion of its scope of recognition. The Assistant Secretary will 
make the final decision on granting the application. In making this 
decision, the Assistant Secretary may undertake other proceedings 
prescribed in Appendix A to 29 CFR 1910.7.
    OSHA will publish a public notice of its final decision in the 
Federal Register.
