ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: In this notice, OSHA announces the final decision to expand the scope of recognition for MET Laboratories, Inc., as a Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL). Additionally, OSHA announces the addition of one test standard to the NRTL Program’s List of Appropriate Test Standards. DATES: The expansion of the scope of recognition becomes effective on September 17, 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 jbell on DSK3GLQ082PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:05 Sep 16, 2019 Jkt 247001 Communications, U.S. Department of Labor; 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, U.S. Department of Labor; telephone: (202) 693–2110; email: robinson.kevin@dol.gov. OSHA’s web page includes information about the NRTL Program (see http:// www.osha.gov/dts/otpca/nrtl/ index.html). SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Notice of Final Decision OSHA hereby gives notice of the expansion of the scope of recognition of MET Laboratories, Inc. (MET), as a NRTL. MET’s expansion covers the addition of one test standard to its scope of recognition. Additionally, OSHA announces the addition of one test standard to the NRTL Program’s List of Appropriate Test Standards. 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 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 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 the scope of recognition. These pages are available from the agency’s website at http:// www.osha.gov/dts/otpca/nrtl/ index.html. MET submitted an application, dated November 8, 2016 (OSHA–2006–0028– PO 00000 Frm 00043 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 48947 0041), to expand its recognition to include four 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 previously published a Federal Register notice (83 FR 5813) on February 9, 2018, announcing this application, but referenced one of the four standards as being recognized by OSHA when that standard is not currently included in the NRTL Program’s List of Appropriate Test Standards. OSHA further published a Federal Register notice (83 FR 22291) granting recognition for three of the four additional standards requested in the application. This notice corrects the error in the previous Federal Register notice for the one remaining standard. OSHA published the preliminary notice announcing MET’s expansion application and proposed addition to the NRTL List of Appropriate Test Standards in the Federal Register on March 12, 2019 (84 FR 8900). The agency requested comments by March 27, 2019, and it received one comment (OSHA–2006–0028–0053) in response to this notice. This comment did not require a response from the agency. OSHA now is proceeding with this final notice to grant expansion of MET’s scope of recognition. To obtain or review copies of all public documents pertaining to MET’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–2006–0028 contains all materials in the record concerning MET’s recognition. II. Final Decision and Order OSHA staff examined MET’s expansion application, the capability to meet the requirements of the test standards, and other pertinent information. Based on a review of this evidence, OSHA finds that MET meets the requirements of 29 CFR 1910.7 for expansion of the recognition, subject to the specified limitation and conditions listed. OSHA, therefore, is proceeding with this final notice to grant expansion of MET’s scope of recognition. OSHA limits the expansion of MET’s scope of recognition to testing and certification of products for demonstration of conformance to the test standard listed in Table 1. E:\FR\FM\17SEN1.SGM 17SEN1
