SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Notice of Recognition and Correction

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) hereby gives notice that the recognition of Intertek Testing Services NA, Inc. (ITS) as a Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory is expanded to include the additional specific standards listed below. ITS applied for an expansion of its recognition as a NRTL for equipment or materials (standards), pursuant to 29 CFR 1910.7, which was announced on August 9, 1996 (61 FR 41659). No comments were received concerning the request for expansion. OSHA then granted the expansion of recognition for additional standards on November 20, 1996 (61 FR 59111). Through no fault of ITS, four standards were excluded, but should have been included, in the list of standards recognized. In connection with the November 20, 1996 expansion, OSHA had determined that ITS has the necessary personnel and equipment, and meets other criteria and requirements to perform testing and certification to these four standards. OSHA is therefore correcting the recognition granted on November 20, 1996, and recognizes ITS for the additional standards listed below.

ITS is recognized for the following standards when applicable to equipment or materials that will be used in environments under OSHA's jurisdiction. ITS is recognized for testing and certification of products when tested for compliance with these test standards, which are appropriate within the meaning of 29 CFR 1910.7(c):

UL 8730-1 Electrical Controls for Household and Similar Use; Part 1: General

UL 8730-2-4 Automatic Electrical Controls for Household and Similar Use; Part 2: Particular Requirements for Thermal Motor Protectors for Motor Compressors or Hermetic and Semi-Hermetic Type

UL 8730-2-7 Automatic Electrical Controls for Household and Similar Use; Part 2: Particular Requirements for Timers and Time Switches

UL 8730-2-8 Automatic Electrical Controls for Household and Similar Use; Part 2: Particular Requirements for Electrically Operated Water Valves

The recognition of these additional standards is the only recognition granted in this notice. All other conditions and requirements of ITS's recognition remain the same.

Since this correction does not fall within the public notice requirements of 29 CFR 1910.7, this is the only notice that OSHA will publish on this decision. A copy of the ITS application for expansion of recognition is available for inspection and duplication at the Docket Office, Room N-2634, Occupational Safety and Health Administration, U.S. Department of Labor, 200 Constitution Avenue, N.W., Washington, D.C. 20210, (Docket No. NRTL-1-89).

Signed at Washington, D.C. this 23rd day of December, 1997.

Charles N. Jeffress,
Assistant Secretary.
