Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 184 / Tuesday, September 22, 2020 / Notices B. Sites Requested for Recognition OSHA limits DEKRA’s scope of recognition to include the two sites listed below: 1. DEKRA Certification, Inc., 405 Glenn Drive, Suite 12, Sterling, Virginia 20164; and 2. DEKRA Certification B.V. Arnhem Meander 1051, 6825 MJ Arnhem, Gelderland, Netherlands. OSHA’s recognition of these sites limits DEKRA to performing product testing and certifications only to the test standards for which the site has the proper capability and programs, and for the test standards in DEKRA’s scope of recognition. This limitation is consistent with the recognition that OSHA grants to other NRTLs that operate multiple sites. C. Conditions In addition to those conditions already required by 29 CFR 1910.7, DEKRA also must abide by the following conditions of the recognition: 1. DEKRA 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. DEKRA must meet all the terms of the recognition and comply with all OSHA policies pertaining to this recognition; and 59557 3. DEKRA must continue to meet the requirements for recognition, including all previously published conditions on DEKRA’s scope of recognition, in all areas for which it has recognition. IV. Final Decision To Add New Test Standards to the NRTL Program’s List of Appropriate Test Standards In this notice, OSHA also announces the addition of two new test standards to the NRTL Program’s List of Appropriate Test Standards. Table 2, below, lists the test standards that are new to the NRTL Program. OSHA has determined that these test standards are appropriate test standards and will include them in the NRTL Program’s List of Appropriate Test Standards.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Notice of the Applications for Expansion OSHA is providing notice that QAI Laboratories, Ltd. (QAI), is applying for expansion of recognition as a NRTL. QAI requests the addition of one test standard to the 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 applications by a NRTL for initial recognition and for an 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. 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, including QAI, 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. QAI currently has two facilities (sites) recognized by OSHA for product testing and certification, with headquarters located at: QAI Laboratories, Ltd., 3980 North Fraser Way, Burnaby, BC, Canada, V5J 5K5. A complete list of QAI’s scope of recognition is available at https:// www.osha.gov/dts/otpca/nrtl/qai.html. II. General Background on the Applications QAI submitted three applications, one dated October 16, 2017 (OSHA–2013– 0017–0015), to expand recognition to include seventeen additional test standards. This application was amended on June 12, 2019 (OSHA– 2013–0017–0016) to remove some standards from the original request and add others. This revised application was amended again on February 11, 2020 (OSHA–2013–0017–0017) to request twenty-one additional standards to be added to QAI’s NRTL scope of recognition. 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Notice of the Applications for Expansion

    OSHA is providing notice that QAI Laboratories, Ltd. (QAI), is 
applying for expansion of recognition as a NRTL. QAI requests the 
addition of one test standard to the 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 applications by a NRTL for initial recognition 
and for an 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. 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, 
including QAI, 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.
    QAI currently has two facilities (sites) recognized by OSHA for 
product testing and certification, with headquarters located at: QAI 
Laboratories, Ltd., 3980 North Fraser Way, Burnaby, BC, Canada, V5J 
5K5. A complete list of QAI's scope of recognition is available at 
https://www.osha.gov/dts/otpca/nrtl/qai.html.

II. General Background on the Applications

    QAI submitted three applications, one dated October 16, 2017 (OSHA-
2013-0017-0015), to expand recognition to include seventeen additional 
test standards. This application was amended on June 12, 2019 (OSHA-
2013-0017-0016) to remove some standards from the original request and 
add others. This revised application was amended again on February 11, 
2020 (OSHA-2013-0017-0017) to request twenty-one additional standards 
to be added to QAI's NRTL scope of recognition. OSHA staff performed a 
detailed analysis of the application packet and reviewed other 
pertinent information. OSHA did not perform any on-site reviews in

III. Preliminary Findings on the Applications

    QAI submitted acceptable applications for expansion of recognition. 
OSHA's review of the application file, and pertinent documentation, 
indicates QAI can meet the requirements prescribed by 29 CFR 1910.7 for 
expanding recognition to include the addition of these twenty-one test 
standards for NRTL testing and certification listed above. This 
preliminary finding does not constitute an interim or temporary 
approval of QAI's applications.
    OSHA welcomes public comment as to whether QAI meets the 
requirements of 29 CFR 1910.7 for expansion of recognition as a NRTL. 
Comments should consist of pertinent written documents and exhibits. 
Commenters needing more time to comment must submit a request in 
writing, stating the reasons for the request. Commenters must submit 
the written request for an extension by the due date for comments. OSHA 
will limit any extension to 10 days unless the 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-2013-0017.
    OSHA staff will review all comments to the docket submitted in a 
timely manner. After addressing the issues raised by these comments, 
the agency will make a recommendation to the Assistant Secretary for 
Occupational Safety and Health whether to grant QAI's applications for 
expansion of recognition. The Assistant Secretary will make the final 
decision on granting the applications. 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 the final decision in the 
Federal Register.
