QAI Laboratories, Ltd. Applications for Expansion of Recognition, 2701-2703 [2021-00502]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 8 / Wednesday, January 13, 2021 / Notices adjustments to ETA Form 671, Section II (Voluntary Disability Disclosure). ETA has added the information collection requirements that are currently approved under OMB Control Number 1205–0224 to this ICR in an effort to consolidate all information collection requirements pertaining to the registration of apprenticeship programs and apprentices into a single ICR. The adjustments to ETA Form 9039 (Complaint Form—Equal Employment Opportunity in Apprenticeship Programs) include minor, nonsubstantive textual edits, and technical corrections indicating that the regulatory requirements governing registered apprenticeship programs are now contained in 29 CFR part 29, subpart A. ETA will submit a request to discontinue the ICR approved under OMB Control Number 1205–0224 once approval is granted by OMB on this ICR. ETA has also added a new information collection instrument, ETA Form 9186 (State Apprenticeship Agency (SAA) Self-Assessment Report for Program Data and Apprentice Demographics), to this ICR. If approved, this form will be completed by the SAAs that currently do not use DOL/ ETA’s Registered Apprenticeship Partners Information Database System (RAPIDS) to administer Registered Apprenticeship in their respective state/ territory. This collection will enable ETA to calculate more precisely the total number of registered apprenticeship programs and apprentices on a nationwide basis. 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. Comments must be written to receive consideration, and they will be summarized and included in the request for OMB approval of the final ICR. In order to help ensure appropriate consideration, comments should mention OMB Control Number 1205– 0223. Submitted comments will also be a matter of public record for this ICR and posted on the internet, without VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:08 Jan 12, 2021 Jkt 253001 redaction. DOL encourages commenters not to include personally identifiable information, confidential business data, or other sensitive statements/ information in any comments. DOL is particularly interested in comments that: • Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; • Evaluate the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; • Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and • Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, (e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses). Agency: DOL–ETA. Type of Review: REVISION. Title of Collection: Registration and Equal Employment Opportunity in Apprenticeship Programs. Forms: ETA Form 671, ETA Form 9039, and ETA Form 9186. OMB Control Number: 1205–0223. Affected Public: Individuals/ households, state/local/tribal governments, Federal government, private sector (businesses or other forprofits, and, not-for-profit institutions). Estimated Number of Respondents: 651,093. Frequency: Varies. Total Estimated Annual Responses: 957,452. Estimated Average Time per Response: Varies. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 521,964 hours. Total Estimated Annual Other Cost Burden: $0. John Pallasch, Assistant Secretary for Employment and Training.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: I. Notice of Final Decision OSHA hereby gives notice of the expansion of the scope of recognition for QAI to cover the addition of twentyone test standards to the NRTL scope of recognition. OSHA’s 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. E:\FR\FM\13JAN1.SGM 13JAN1 2702 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 8 / Wednesday, January 13, 2021 / Notices The agency processes NRTL applications 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 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, detailing 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. 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. OSHA published the preliminary notice announcing QAI’s expansion applications in the Federal Register on September 22, 2020 (85 FR 59557). The agency requested comments by October 7, 2020, but it received no comments in response to this notice. OSHA is now proceeding with this final notice to grant expansion of QAI’s scope of recognition. To obtain or review copies of all public documents pertaining to QAI’s applications, go to www.regulations.gov or contact the Docket Office, Occupational Safety and Health Administration at 202–693–2350. Docket No. OSHA–2013–0017 contains all materials in the record concerning QAI’s recognition. II. Final Decision and Order OSHA examined QAI’s expansion applications, the capability to meet the requirements of the test standards, and other pertinent information. Based on a review of this evidence, OSHA finds that QAI meets the requirements of 29 CFR 1910.7 for expansion of the scope of recognition, subject to the conditions listed below. OSHA, therefore, is proceeding with this final notice to grant the expansion of QAI’s scope of recognition. OSHA limits the expansion of QAI’s scope of recognition to testing and certification of products for demonstration of conformance to the test standards listed in Table 1.

OSHA’s recognition of any NRTL for a particular test standard is limited to equipment or materials for which OSHA standards require third-party testing and certification before using them in the workplace. Consequently, if a test standard also covers any products for which OSHA does not require such VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:08 Jan 12, 2021 Jkt 253001 testing and certification, a NRTL’s scope of recognition does not include these products. The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) may approve the test standards listed above as American National Standards. However, for convenience, the designation of the PO 00000 Frm 00066 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 standards-developing organization for the standard as opposed to the ANSI designation may be used. Under the NRTL Program’s policy (see OSHA Instruction CPL 1–0.3, Appendix C, paragraph XIV), any NRTL recognized for a particular test standard may use either the proprietary version of the test E:\FR\FM\13JAN1.SGM 13JAN1 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 8 / Wednesday, January 13, 2021 / Notices standard or the ANSI version of that standard. Contact ANSI to determine whether a test standard is currently ANSI-approved. A. Conditions In addition to those conditions already required by 29 CFR 1910.7, QAI must abide by the following conditions of the recognition: 1. QAI 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. QAI must meet all the terms of the recognition and comply with all OSHA policies pertaining to this recognition; and 3. QAI must continue to meet the requirements for recognition, including all previously published conditions on QAI’s scope of recognition, in all areas for which it has recognition. Pursuant to the authority in 29 CFR 1910.7, OSHA hereby expands the scope of recognition of QAI, subject to the conditions specified in this notice. III.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Notice of Final Decision

    OSHA hereby gives notice of the expansion of the scope of 
recognition for QAI to cover the addition of twenty-one test standards 
to the NRTL scope of recognition.
    OSHA's 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.

[[Page 2702]]

    The agency processes NRTL applications 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 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, 
detailing 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.
    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. OSHA published the preliminary notice 
announcing QAI's expansion applications in the Federal Register on 
September 22, 2020 (85 FR 59557). The agency requested comments by 
October 7, 2020, but it received no comments in response to this 
notice. OSHA is now proceeding with this final notice to grant 
expansion of QAI's scope of recognition.
    To obtain or review copies of all public documents pertaining to 
QAI's applications, go to www.regulations.gov or contact the Docket 
Office, Occupational Safety and Health Administration at 202-693-2350. 
Docket No. OSHA-2013-0017 contains all materials in the record 
concerning QAI's recognition.

II. Final Decision and Order

    OSHA examined QAI's expansion applications, the capability to meet 
the requirements of the test standards, and other pertinent 
information. Based on a review of this evidence, OSHA finds that QAI 
meets the requirements of 29 CFR 1910.7 for expansion of the scope of 
recognition, subject to the conditions listed below. OSHA, therefore, 
is proceeding with this final notice to grant the expansion of QAI's 
scope of recognition. OSHA limits the expansion of QAI's scope of 
recognition to testing and certification of products for demonstration 
of conformance to the test standards listed in Table 1.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

    OSHA's recognition of any NRTL for a particular test standard is 
limited to equipment or materials for which OSHA standards require 
third-party testing and certification before using them in the 
workplace. Consequently, if a test standard also covers any products 
for which OSHA does not require such testing and certification, a 
NRTL's scope of recognition does not include these products.
    The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) may approve the 
test standards listed above as American National Standards. However, 
for convenience, the designation of the standards-developing 
organization for the standard as opposed to the ANSI designation may be 
used. Under the NRTL Program's policy (see OSHA Instruction CPL 1-0.3, 
Appendix C, paragraph XIV), any NRTL recognized for a particular test 
standard may use either the proprietary version of the test

[[Page 2703]]

standard or the ANSI version of that standard. Contact ANSI to 
determine whether a test standard is currently ANSI-approved.

A. Conditions

    In addition to those conditions already required by 29 CFR 1910.7, 
QAI must abide by the following conditions of the recognition:
    1. QAI 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. QAI must meet all the terms of the recognition and comply with 
all OSHA policies pertaining to this recognition; and
    3. QAI must continue to meet the requirements for recognition, 
including all previously published conditions on QAI's scope of 
recognition, in all areas for which it has recognition.
    Pursuant to the authority in 29 CFR 1910.7, OSHA hereby expands the 
scope of recognition of QAI, subject to the conditions specified in 
this notice.
