SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: I. Notice of Final Decision OSHA hereby gives notice of the expansion of the scope of recognition of SGS North America, Inc. (SGS), as a NRTL. SGS’s expansion covers the addition of one recognized testing and certification site to their NRTL scope of recognition. OSHA recognition of a NRTL signifies that the organization meets the requirements in Section 1910.7 of Title 29, Code of Federal Regulations (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. 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 PO 00000 Frm 00054 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 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 the 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. SGS submitted an application, dated October 16, 2017 (OSHA–2006–0040– 0052), to expand the recognition to include the addition of one recognized testing and certification site located at: SGS Consumer and Retail France, 135, Rue Rene Descartes-CS 30584, 13857 Aix en Provence Cedex 3, France. OSHA staff performed a detailed analysis of the application and other pertinent information. OSHA staff also performed an on-site review of SGS France’s testing and certification facility on July 23–24, 2018 and recommended expansion of SGS’s recognition to include this one site. OSHA published the preliminary notice announcing SGS’s expansion application in the Federal Register on February 26, 2020 (85 FR 11117). The agency requested comments by March 12, 2020, but it received no comments in response to this notice. OSHA now is proceeding with this final notice to grant expansion of SGS’s scope of recognition. To obtain or review copies of all public documents pertaining to the SGS expansion application, go to 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–2006–0040 contains all materials in the record concerning SGS’s recognition. II. Final Decision and Order OSHA staff examined SGS’s expansion application, conducted a detailed on-site assessment, and examined other pertinent information. Based on review of this evidence, OSHA finds that SGS meets the requirements of 29 CFR 1910.7 for expansion of recognition, subject to the specified limitation and conditions. OSHA, therefore, is proceeding with this final notice to grant SGS’s scope of recognition. OSHA limits the expansion of SGS’s recognition to include the site E:\FR\FM\21SEN1.SGM 21SEN1 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 183 / Monday, September 21, 2020 / Notices in France as listed above. OSHA’s recognition of this site limits SGS to performing product testing and certifications only to the test standards for which the site has the proper capability and programs, and for test standards in SGS’s scope of recognition. This limitation is consistent with the recognition that OSHA grants to other NRTLs that operate multiple sites. A. Conditions In addition to those conditions already required by 29 CFR 1910.7, SGS also must abide by the following conditions of the recognition: 1. SGS must inform OSHA as soon as possible, in writing, of any change of ownership, facilities, or key personnel, and of any major change in the operations as a NRTL, and provide details of the change(s); 2. SGS must meet all the terms of the recognition and comply with all OSHA policies pertaining to this recognition; and 3. SGS must continue to meet the requirements for recognition, including all previously published conditions on SGS’s scope of recognition, in all areas for which it has recognition. OSHA will publish a public notice of this final decision in the Federal Register. Pursuant to the authority in 29 CFR 1910.7, OSHA hereby expands the recognition of SGS, subject to these limitations and conditions specified above. III.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Notice of Final Decision

    OSHA hereby gives notice of the expansion of the scope of 
recognition of SGS North America, Inc. (SGS), as a NRTL. SGS's 
expansion covers the addition of one recognized testing and 
certification site to their NRTL scope of recognition.
    OSHA recognition of a NRTL signifies that the organization meets 
the requirements in Section 1910.7 of Title 29, Code of Federal 
Regulations (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.
    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 the 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.
    SGS submitted an application, dated October 16, 2017 (OSHA-2006-
0040-0052), to expand the recognition to include the addition of one 
recognized testing and certification site located at: SGS Consumer and 
Retail France, 135, Rue Rene Descartes-CS 30584, 13857 Aix en Provence 
Cedex 3, France. OSHA staff performed a detailed analysis of the 
application and other pertinent information. OSHA staff also performed 
an on-site review of SGS France's testing and certification facility on 
July 23-24, 2018 and recommended expansion of SGS's recognition to 
include this one site.
    OSHA published the preliminary notice announcing SGS's expansion 
application in the Federal Register on February 26, 2020 (85 FR 11117). 
The agency requested comments by March 12, 2020, but it received no 
comments in response to this notice. OSHA now is proceeding with this 
final notice to grant expansion of SGS's scope of recognition.
    To obtain or review copies of all public documents pertaining to 
the SGS expansion application, go to 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-2006-0040 contains all materials 
in the record concerning SGS's recognition.

II. Final Decision and Order

    OSHA staff examined SGS's expansion application, conducted a 
detailed on-site assessment, and examined other pertinent information. 
Based on review of this evidence, OSHA finds that SGS meets the 
requirements of 29 CFR 1910.7 for expansion of recognition, subject to 
the specified limitation and conditions. OSHA, therefore, is proceeding 
with this final notice to grant SGS's scope of recognition. OSHA limits 
the expansion of SGS's recognition to include the site

in France as listed above. OSHA's recognition of this site limits SGS 
to performing product testing and certifications only to the test 
standards for which the site has the proper capability and programs, 
and for test standards in SGS's scope of recognition. This limitation 
is consistent with the recognition that OSHA grants to other NRTLs that 
operate multiple sites.

A. Conditions

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