SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Form OSHA-70 is used by applicants seeking 
accreditation from the OSHA to be able to test or examine certain 
equipment and material handling devices as required under the OSHA 
maritime regulations, 29 CFR part 1917 (Marine Terminals) and 29 CFR 
part 1918 (Longshoring). The OSHA uses this information to accredit 
companies to inspect and provide certification for cranes, derricks, 
and accessory gear used in the longshoring, marine terminal, and 
shipyard industries. Certain types of vessel cargo gear and shore-based 
material handling devices used in maritime operations are required to 
have accredited companies conduct examinations.
    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 currently approved by the 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 if the collection of information does not display a 
currently valid OMB control number. See 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and 1320.6. The 
DOL obtains OMB approval for this information collection under OMB 
Control Number 1218-0003. The current OMB approval is scheduled to 
expire on January 31, 2011; however, it should be noted that 
information collections submitted to the OMB receive a month-to-month 
extension while they undergo review. For additional information, see 
the related notice published in the Federal Register on November 5, 
2010 (75 FR 68381).
    Interested parties are encouraged to send comments to the OMB, 
Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs at the address shown in 
the ADDRESSES section within 30 days of publication of this notice in 
the Federal Register. In order to ensure appropriate consideration, 
comments should reference OMB Control Number 1218-0003. The OMB 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.
