SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: I. Notice of Final Decision OSHA hereby gives notice of the expansion of the scope of recognition of TUV SUD America, Inc. (TUVAM), as a NRTL. TUVAM’s expansion covers the addition of eight recognized test standards to the 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 its 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 its 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 its scope of recognition. These pages are available from the agency’s website at http:// www.osha.gov/dts/otpca/nrtl/ index.html. TUVAM submitted an application, dated August 29, 2019 (OSHA–2007– 0043–0032), to expand their recognition to include eight additional test standards. OSHA staff performed detailed analysis of the application packet and reviewed other pertinent information. OSHA did not perform an on-site review related to this application. OSHA published the preliminary notice announcing TUVAM’s expansion application in the Federal Register on 15725 February 3, 2021 (86 FR 8039). The agency requested comments by February 18, 2021, but it received no comments in response to this notice. OSHA now is proceeding with this final notice to grant expansion of TUVAM’s scope of recognition. To obtain or review copies of all public documents pertaining to the TUVAM 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, Washington, DC 20210.

II. Final Decision and Order OSHA staff examined TUVAM’s expansion application, and examined other pertinent information. Based on review of this evidence, OSHA finds that TUVAM 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 TUVAM’s scope of recognition.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Notice of Final Decision

    OSHA hereby gives notice of the expansion of the scope of 
recognition of TUV SUD America, Inc. (TUVAM), as a NRTL. TUVAM's 
expansion covers the addition of eight recognized test standards to the 
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 its 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 its 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 its scope of recognition. These pages are 
available from the agency's website at http://www.osha.gov/dts/otpca/nrtl/index.html.
    TUVAM submitted an application, dated August 29, 2019 (OSHA-2007-
0043-0032), to expand their recognition to include eight additional 
test standards. OSHA staff performed detailed analysis of the 
application packet and reviewed other pertinent information. OSHA did 
not perform an on-site review related to this application.
    OSHA published the preliminary notice announcing TUVAM's expansion 
application in the Federal Register on February 3, 2021 (86 FR 8039). 
The agency requested comments by February 18, 2021, but it received no 
comments in response to this notice. OSHA now is proceeding with this 
final notice to grant expansion of TUVAM's scope of recognition.
    To obtain or review copies of all public documents pertaining to 
the TUVAM 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, Washington, DC 20210. 
Docket No. OSHA-2007-0043 contains all materials in the record 
concerning TUVAM's recognition. Please note: While OSHA's Docket Office 
is continuing to accept and process submissions by regular mail, due to 
the COVID-19 pandemic, the Docket Office is closed to the public and 
not able to receive submissions to the docket by hand, express mail, 
messenger, and courier service.

II. Final Decision and Order

    OSHA staff examined TUVAM's expansion application, and examined 
other pertinent information. Based on review of this evidence, OSHA 
finds that TUVAM 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 TUVAM's 
scope of recognition. OSHA limits the expansion of TUVAM's 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, we may use the designation of the standards-developing 
organization for the standard as opposed to the ANSI designation. 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 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, 
TUVAM also must abide by the following conditions of the recognition:

[[Page 15726]]

    1. TUVAM must inform OSHA as soon as possible, in writing, of any 
change of ownership, facilities, or key personnel, and of any major 
change in its operations as a NRTL, and provide details of the 
change(s);
    2. TUVAM must meet all the terms of its recognition and comply with 
all OSHA policies pertaining to this recognition; and
    3. TUVAM must continue to meet the requirements for recognition, 
including all previously published conditions on TUVAM'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 
recognition of TUVAM, subject to the limitations and conditions 
specified above.
