Notice of Correction

    The Canadian Standards Association (CSA) was recognized by OSHA as 
a Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory on December 24, 1992 (57 FR 
61452). The notice which announced this recognition included a list of 
test standards that became part of CSA's scope of recognition. In 
general, NRTLs use such test standards to test and certify products 
that OSHA requires to be approved before use in the workplace. One of 
the test standards included in CSA's initial scope was UL 1563, which 
is now titled Electric Spas, Equipment Assemblies, and Associated 
Equipment. At the time, its title was Electric Hot Tubs, Spas, and 
Associated Equipment. In compliance with its regulations, OSHA renewed 
CSA's recognition on July 3, 2001 (66 FR 35271). OSHA, however, 
inadvertently omitted UL 1563 from the Federal Register notice 
published for the CSA renewal. As a result, OSHA is reinstating UL 1563 
to CSA's scope of recognition. CSA's capability to test and certify 
products to this standard has existed since the time of its recognition 
in December 1992.
    This reinstatement is the only change that OSHA is making to CSA's 
recognition through this notice. All other terms and conditions of its 
recognition remain the same.

    Signed at Washington, DC, this 10th day of October 2008.
Edwin G. Foulke, Jr.,
Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health.
