  SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks to extend PRA authority for
  the Powered Industrial Trucks Standard information collection. The
  Standard contains several information collection requirements
  addressing truck design, construction, and modification, as well as
  certification of training and evaluation for truck operators.
  Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 sections 2(b)(9), 6(b)(7),
  and 8(c) authorize this information collection. See 29 U.S.C.
  651(b)(9), 655(b)(7), 657(c).
      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 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 that
  does not display a valid Control Number. See 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and
  1320.6. The DOL obtains OMB approval for this information collection
  under Control Number 1218-0242. For additional substantive information
  about this ICR, see the related notice published in the Federal
  Register on September 28, 2017 (82 FR 45317).
      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 thirty (30) days of publication of this
  notice in the Federal Register. In order to help ensure appropriate
  consideration, comments should mention OMB Control Number 1218-0242.
      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.
      Agency: DOL-OSHA.
