PO 00000 Frm 00038 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 The National Agricultural Workers Survey (NAWS) is an employmentbased, annual survey of the demographic, employment, and health characteristics of hired crop workers, including those who employers hire indirectly through labor contractors. The survey began in 1988. Each year the NAWS contractor interviews between 1,500 and 3,500 crop workers. The contractor interviews crop workers three times per year to account for the seasonality of agricultural employment. ETA uses NAWS data to estimate each state’s share of crop workers who are eligible for employment and training services through ETA’s National Farmworker Jobs Program. Other Federal agencies similarly use the survey’s data to estimate the number and characteristics of crop workers and their dependents who qualify to participate in or receive services from various migrant and seasonal farmworker programs. The United States Department of Agriculture routinely uses NAWS data, along with other data, to estimate changes in agricultural productivity. ETA is seeking approval to continue the NAWS, without change. The Wagner-Peyser Act, as amended (29 U.S.C. 49f (d) and 49l–2(a)) authorizes this information collection. This information collection is subject to the PRA. A Federal agency generally cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information, and the public is generally not required to respond to an information collection, unless it is approved by OMB under the PRA and displays a currently valid OMB Control Number. In addition, notwithstanding any other provisions of law, no person shall generally be subject to penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information that does not display a valid Control Number. See 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and 1320.6. Interested parties are encouraged to provide comments to the contact shown in the ADDRESSES section. To receive consideration, you must provide written comments, which DOL will summarize and include in the request for OMB approval of the final ICR. In order to help ensure appropriate consideration, comments should mention OMB Control No. 1205–0453. Submitted comments will also be a matter of public record for this ICR and posted on the internet, without redaction. DOL encourages commenters not to include personally identifiable information, confidential business data, or other sensitive statements/ information in any comments.

ACTION: Notice. jspears on DSK30JT082PROD with NOTICES AGENCY: In this notice, OSHA announces the final decision to add a new test standard to the Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratories (NRTL) Program’s list of appropriate test standards. VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:56 Jul 24, 2019 Jkt 247001 I. Background The NRTL Program recognizes organizations that provide productsafety testing and certification services to manufacturers. These organizations perform testing and certification for purposes of the program, to U.S. consensus-based product-safety test standards. The products covered by the NRTL Program consist of those items for which OSHA safety standards require ‘‘certification’’ by a NRTL. The requirements affect electrical products and 38 other types of products. OSHA does not develop or issue these test standards, but generally relies on standards development organizations (SDOs), which develop and maintain the standards using a method that provides input and consideration of views of industry groups, experts, users, consumers, governmental authorities and others having broad experience in the safety field involved. Addition of New Test Standards to the NRTL Program List of Appropriate Test Standards DEPARTMENT OF LABOR SUMMARY: The actions contained in this notice will become effective on July 25, 2019. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Information regarding this notice is available from the following sources: Press inquiries: Contact Mr. Frank Meilinger, Director, OSHA Office of Communications; telephone: (202) 693– 1999; email: meilinger.francis2@dol.gov. General and technical information: Contact Mr. Kevin Robinson, Director, Office of Technical Programs and Coordination Activities, Directorate of Technical Support and Emergency Management, Occupational Safety and Health Administration; telephone: (202) 693–2110 or email: robinson.kevin@ dol.gov. OSHA’s website includes information about the NRTL Program (see http://www.osha.gov/dts/otpca/ nrtl/index.html). SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: DATES: Periodically, OSHA will 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). OSHA becomes aware of new test standards through various avenues. For PO 00000 Frm 00039 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 35887 example, OSHA may become aware of new test standards by: (1) Monitoring notifications issued by certain SDOs; (2) reviewing applications by NRTLs or applicants seeking recognition to include a new test standard in their scopes of recognition; and (3) obtaining notification from manufacturers, manufacturing organizations, government agencies, or other parties that a new test standard may be appropriate to add to the list of appropriate standards. OSHA may determine to include a new test standard in the list, for example, if the test standard is for a particular type of product that another test standard also covers, addresses a type of product that no standard previously covered, or is otherwise new to the NRTL Program. Proposed Modification to the NRTL Program List of Appropriate NRTL Program Test Standards In a March 14, 2019, Federal Register notice (84 FR 9384, referred to in this notice as ‘‘Proposed Modification,’’ and available at www.regulations.gov under Docket ID OSHA–2013–0012–0019), OSHA proposed adding one standard to the NRTL Program List of Appropriate Test Standards. OSHA received one comment on this proposed action (available at www.regulations.gov under Docket IDs OSHA–2013–0012–0022). OSHA fully considered this comment and determined that no action was necessary. II. Final Decision To Add a New Test Standard to the NRTL Program List of Appropriate Test Standards In this notice, OSHA announces the final decision to add one new test standard, to the NRTL Program List of Appropriate Test Standards, as described in Table 1: TABLE 1—TEST STANDARDS OSHA DECIDED TO ADD TO THE NRTL PROGRAM LIST OF APPROPRIATE TEST STANDARDS Test standard ANSI/CPLSO 14–2016 ... Test standard title Crane Insulators. OSHA will add this test standard to the ‘‘Appropriate Test Standards’’ web page on OSHA’s website. Access to this web page is available at http:// www.osha.gov/dts/otpca/nrtl/ index.html. III. Authority and Signature Loren Sweatt, Acting Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health, authorized the preparation of this notice. Accordingly, the agency is issuing this notice E:\FR\FM\25JYN1.SGM 25JYN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: DOL, as part of 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 the Office of Management and

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.
    The National Agricultural Workers Survey (NAWS) is an employment-

Each year the NAWS contractor interviews between 1,500 and 3,500 crop 
workers. The contractor interviews crop workers three times per year to

for employment and training services through ETA's National Farmworker 
Jobs Program. Other Federal agencies similarly use the survey's data to 
estimate the number and characteristics of crop workers and their

various migrant and seasonal farmworker programs. The United States 
Department of Agriculture routinely uses NAWS data, along with other
