OSHA Instruction PUB 8-1.9 Sept 10, 1991 Directorate of Technical Support

Subject: Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL) Accreditation Program (29 CFR 1910.7)

A. Purpose. This instruction provides information on the NRTL accreditation program which is administered by the Directorate of Technical Support and implemented by the Office of Variance Determination. As a result of the new program, additional laboratory organizations are now authorized to certify products.

B. Scope. This instruction applies OSHA-wide.

C. Background. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) published a final rule, "Safety Testing or Certification of Certain Workplace Equipment and Materials; 29 CFR 1907 and 1910", in the Federal Register of April 12, 1988. This document included two important facets: the modification of the language of those provisions in 29 CFR 1910 that require product "certification" (by whatever term used) by organizations such as Underwriters Laboratories Inc. and Factory Mutual Engineering Corporation, to specify that these certifications be accomplished by a nationally recognized testing laboratory (NRTL), and; the establishment of criteria by which a testing organization could apply for and be accredited as an NRTL to test and certify these products.

While our program refers to the "recognition" of applicants, the term is used in the sense that most within the testing and certification community use "accreditation." For consistency and accuracy, we will also refer to "accrediting" rather than "recognizing" an applicant. We refer to the program, as the "NRTL accreditation program" and the laboratories that are accredited under this program are "nationally recognized testing laboratories" or "NRTLs."
Prior to June 13, 1988, Section 1910 referenced Underwriters Laboratories, Inc. (UL) and Factory Mutual Research Corporation (FM) as the only two laboratory organizations authorized to certify products for use in the workplace. UL and FM were temporarily recognized (accredited) by OSHA at the outset of the program to insure a smooth transition.
Prior to the end of this period, July 13, 1993, both must apply for and receive formal accreditation to enable them to continue to certify products under OSHA's requirements. The accreditation procedure necessitates, among other requirements, on-site investigations of the applicants' facilities. The worldwide locations and numbers of testing facilities of the Underwriters Laboratories (UL) alone, as well as the estimated number of test standards to be requested, will necessitate extensive manpower needs.
OSHA's obligations under the specific rule, 29 CFR 1910.7 -
"Definition and requirements for a nationally recognized testing laboratory," and Appendix A to 29 CFR 1910.7 - "OSHA Recognition Process for Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratories," include allowing all applicants an equal opportunity to become accredited to test and certify products requiring certification under OSHA's regulations, and to assure that each applicant satisfies the requirements for NRTL accreditation.
This instruction will provide background on Section 1910.7 and information concerning the laboratory organizations accredited to certify products. Compliance Safety and Health Officers (CSHOs) will begin to see labels other than those of UL and FM on products requiring certification since, to date, five additional organizations have been accredited.

D. Requirements for NRTL Accreditation. OSHA requires that an applicant for NRTL recognition be a combination of testing laboratory and certifying body. OSHA's recognition is based upon the applicant's ability to adequately perform both functions. The applicant's identification procedure must include testing and evaluation, quality control, follow-up procedures and control of its certification mark.

In general, most of the equipment or materials (products) which the OSHA standards require to be certified are of an electrical nature. The standards also require certification of products which are: LPG appliances; fire detection or extinguishment systems; or acetylene apparatus. Other miscellaneous products or categories of products may also require certification. A nationally recognized testing laboratory, within the context of the OSHA regulation, is an organization which can test and certify products for safety.

E. Specific Requirements for Accreditation. To be accredited as a NRTL, the applicant must meet specific requirements, including the following:

1. For each product to be certified, the NRTL must demonstrate the capability to determine its conformance with appropriate test standards. This would be determined, in part, by the adequacy of the NRTL's testing equipment and facilities, written testing procedures, calibration and quality control programs, as well as by the capability of the professional staff.
2. The NRTL must provide control procedures for identifying the certified products, provide product evaluation services to assure conformance with the test standards during the production run at the manufacturing site, and assure proper use of its identifying mark or label on the product in the field.
3. The NRTL must maintain effective procedures for producing creditable findings or reports that are objective and without bias, and for handling complaints and disputes under a fair and reasonable system.
4. Finally, any testing organization desiring NRTL status shall request that OSHA evaluate its testing and control programs against the requirements described above for any of the equipment or material test standards it may specify. The recognition procedure is detailed in Appendix A of 29 CFR 1910.7. OSHA invites and encourages public participation in the recognition procedure.
5. Recognitions are for a period of five years and OSHA maintains continuing surveillance over its NRTLs to assure conformance with the requirements of the rule as well as the terms of the recognition.

F. Review of Applicant's Request for Accreditation.

1. The review of an applicant's request for accreditation as an NRTL is as follows:
          a.   Determination of the procedural and technical
                adequacy;
b. Resolution of any legal issues with the Office the Solicitor;
c. Prompt determination of preliminary decision to grant or deny application after any requested additional information has been received and the on-site inspection report has been reviewed;
d. Assembling of the necessary technical data for preparation of a notice of the preliminary decision for publication in the Federal Register. This notice shall include mention of the supporting evidence presented by the applicant for each element of the criteria and provision for a 60 day public comment period;
e. Evaluation of technical data in conjunction with any public comments received. Determination of necessity of on-site inspection based upon any of the facts;
f. Preparation and forwarding to the applicant of a letter of recognition delineating the product(s) authorized to be listed, labeled, or accepted;
g. Assembling of the necessary technical data and preparation of the Federal Register document to include the supporting evidence assuring that the applicant has met the criteria for approval as a nationally recognized testing laboratory; and
h. Forwarding of the document recognizing the applicant as an NRTL to the Assistant Secretary for approval and publication in the Federal Register.
2. After receipt of the necessary administrative and technical data from the applicants, it generally requires an average of six months, including the 60 day Federal Register comment period and the on-site laboratory(s) evaluation, to become an NRTL.
3. As we continue to develop and refine our operating procedures to assure timely decisions for a laboratory organization seeking recognition as an NRTL, we believe that the laboratory accreditation/recognition program is a significant activity and could become a critical area. The program has the potential to expand into other safety and health areas such as: personal protective equipment, crane operations, mechanical power press operations, and the like.

G. NRTL Staff Responsibility. As mandated by the NRTL rule, the NRTL office staff will perform the following administrative and technical functions during the laboratory accreditation process:

1. Maintain case files of all NRTL applicants.
2. Maintain the list of NRTLs and the test standards for which each is accredited on the OSHA Computerized Information System (OCIS).
3. Prepare the "paper work" necessary for the administration of the program, including memoranda, letters of recognition, documents requiring publication in the Federal Register, and all of the documents for the Docket Office of the Technical Data Center.
4. Inspect the physical facilities.
5. Ascertain the availability and proper use of test equipment and materials.
6. Examine calibration/repair methods of test equipment.
7. Assure that test reports contain sufficient information to determine compliance with standards.
8. Confirm that test reports contain sufficient information to determine compliance with standards.
9. Determine that records are adequately maintained and secured.
10. Examine the quality assurance program.

H. Foreign Laboratory Organizations. This NRTL rule provides authority for foreign laboratory organizations to seek accreditation as NRTLs under the OSHA program. As a result, OSHA is required to seek counsel with the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative to determine the testing/certification accreditation practices of the foreign government. The European Communities' Free Trade Agreement becomes effective on January 1, 1993, by which time the European Organization for Testing and Certification (EOTC) is to have selected accrediting organizations ("Certified Bodies") to represent many of the nations of the world. If the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, through the Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory program, is selected as one of the accrediting organizations representing the United States, we can anticipate a considerable increase in applications for NRTL recognition from domestic and foreign laboratory organizations. We are presently engaged in discussions with members of the Office of the Trade Representative to seek guidance on issues dealing with foreign laboratory organizations seeking accreditation from OSHA. Two Canadian organizations have submitted applications for recognition as NRTLs.

I. Certification Labels. As stated, CSHOs will begin to find labels of firms other than UL and FM on products. When this occurs, OCIS may be queried to determine whether the laboratory has been accredited. For additional information, the OSHA National Office of Variance Determination may be contacted at (FTS) 523-7193 or (202) 523-7193.

J. State Plan States. When the Federal nationally recognized testing laboratory accreditation standard was adopted, the State plan States were given the choice of accepting only Federal OSHA accreditation of testing laboratories as NRTLs, or establishing their own laboratory accreditation program. However, any State establishing its own program still had to accept accreditation by NRTLs for testing of equipment and materials where State safety requirements were the same as the Federal. Any independent State program is only for different State equipment and material requirements and is limited to in-State applicability and enforcement. The State program must also be at least as effective as the Federal program. (See OSHA Instruction STP 2-1.147A). Almost all the States have chosen to accept only the Federal laboratory accreditation program.

K. Accredited Laboratories. To date, the following six laboratory organizations have been accredited by OSHA to certify certain specified products or categories of products for use in the workplace.
