Notice of Intent To Grant an Exclusive Patent License, 62516-62517 [2019-24704]

Download as PDF 62516 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 221 / Friday, November 15, 2019 / Notices requires that the Commission maintain on its website an up-to-date list of entities that have been accredited to assess conformity with specific children’s product safety rules. Except for firewalled third party conformity assessment bodies, the Commission has chosen to accept the accreditation of third party conformity assessment bodies that meet accreditation requirements of an independent accreditation organization. To evaluate a third party conformity assessment body’s qualifications for acceptance by CPSC, information related to location, accreditation, and ownership must be collected from third party conformity assessment bodies. The CPSC uses an online collection form, CPSC Form 223, to gather information from third party conformity assessment bodies who are voluntarily seeking acceptance by CPSC. The information collected relates to location, accreditation, and ownership. CPSC staff uses this information to assess: • A third party conformity assessment body’s status as an independent third party conformity assessment body, a government-owned or government-controlled conformity assessment body, or a firewalled conformity assessment body; • Qualifications for acceptance by CPSC to test for compliance to specified children’s product safety rules; and • Eligibility for acceptance on the CPSC website. Part 1112 requires the collection of information in CPSC Form 223: • Upon initial application by a third party conformity assessment body for acceptance by CPSC; • Whenever there is a change in accreditation or ownership information; and • At least every 2 years, as part of a regular audit process. Estimated Burden: The CPSC estimates the burden of the collection of information in CPSC Form 223 is as follows: ESTIMATED ANNUAL REPORTING BURDEN Number of respondents Activity Frequency of responses Total annual responses Hours per response Total hours Initial Registration ................................................................ Re-Registration .................................................................... Changes in Information ........................................................ 40 291 6 1 1 1 40 291 6 1 1 0.25 40 291 1.5 Total .............................................................................. ........................ ........................ ........................ ........................ 332.5 These estimates are based on the following information: • Based on applications received from FY 2013, to date, we estimate the number of third party conformity assessment bodies that would register initially each year for the next 3 years to be 40. • Under 16 CFR part 1112, third party conformity assessment bodies are required to resubmit CPSC Form 223 every 2 years. Because all third party conformity assessment bodies have not submitted their first CPSC Form 223s at the same time, only about half would be expected to resubmit a CPSC Form 223 in any 1 year. • As of August 2019, 581 third party conformity assessment bodies have registered with CPSC. Approximately half (291) of these firms would be required to re-register with CPSC each year. • Under 16 CFR part 1112, third party conformity assessment bodies are required to ensure that the information submitted on CPSC Form 223 is current and must submit a new CPSC Form 223 whenever the information changes. Based on current experience with third party conformity assessment bodies, we estimate that two third party conformity assessment bodies will make revisions per year to update their information. A change in information is a change that does not require review of laboratory accreditation documents, such as scope or test methods. Examples of revised information include changes in the VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:58 Nov 14, 2019 Jkt 250001 website URL, name of the laboratory, and name of point of contact. • Therefore, the total burden is 332.5 hours, which we will round up to 333 hours. We estimate that hourly compensation for the time required for recordkeeping is $34.61 per hour (U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, ‘‘Employer Costs for Employee Compensation,’’ Table 9, total compensation for sales, office, and related workers in goodsproducing industries, March 2019: https://www.bls.gov/ect/data.htm). The total cost burden to the respondents is approximately $11,525 ($34.61 × 333 hours = $11,525). Alberta E. Mills, Secretary, Consumer Product Safety Commission.
