SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Notice of Final Application

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) hereby gives notice of the renewal and expansion of recognition of the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) as a Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL). CSA's expansion request covers the use of additional test standards. The NRTL's scope of recognition may be found in OSHA's informational web page for the NRTL (http://www.osha.gov/dts/otpca/nrtl/csa.html).

OSHA recognition of an NRTL signifies that the organization has met the legal requirements in Section 1910.7 of Title 29, Code of Federal Regulations (29 CFR 1910.7). Recognition is an acknowledgment that the organization can perform independent safety testing and certification of the specific products covered within its scope of recognition and is not a delegation or grant of government authority. As a result of recognition, employers may use products "properly certified" by the NRTL to meet OSHA standards that require testing and certification.

The Agency processes applications by an NRTL for initial recognition or for expansion or renewal of this recognition following requirements in Appendix A to 29 CFR 1910.7. This appendix requires that the Agency publish two notices in the Federal Register in processing an application. In the first notice, OSHA announces the application and provides its preliminary finding and, in the second notice, the Agency provides its final decision on the application. These notices set forth the NRTL's scope of recognition or modifications of that scope.

CSA originated in 1919 as the Canadian Engineering Standards Association (CESA), which was changed in 1944 to the present name. In 1940, CSA began to test and certify products.

CSA received its recognition as an NRTL on December 24, 1992 (see 57 FR 61452), for a period of five years ending December 24, 1997. Appendix A to 29 CFR 1910.7 stipulates that the period of recognition of an NRTL is five years and that an NRTL may renew its recognition by applying not less than nine months, nor more than one year, before the expiration date of its current recognition. CSA submitted its renewal request on March 20, 1997 (see Exhibit 26A), within the time allotted, and CSA retains its recognition pending OSHA's final decision in this renewal process.

In July 1997, CSA acquired additional testing facilities from the American Gas Association (AGA). OSHA had recognized AGA operation of these facilities for NRTL status in 1990 (June 7, 1990, 55 FR 23312). OSHA was in the process of renewing its recognition of these facilities when CSA acquired them. Although OSHA was generally aware that CSA had made this acquisition, CSA did not officially inform OSHA until March 1999 as to how it wanted to treat these sites within its NRTL operations. The NRTL Program staff withheld action on CSA's renewal request until it received this information.

CSA has submitted a request, dated June 16, 1999 (see Exhibit 26B), to expand its recognition as an NRTL to include 195 additional test standards. The NRTL Program staff has determined that 51 of the 195 standards are not "appropriate test standards," within the meaning of 29 CFR 1910.7(c). The staff makes such determinations in processing expansion requests from any NRTL. Therefore, OSHA is approving 144 test standards for the expansion, which are listed below in the section on expansion.

OSHA published the required notice in the Federal Register on March 16, 2001, (66 FR 15281) to announce CSA's renewal and expansion requests. This notice included a preliminary finding that CSA could meet the requirements in 29 CFR 1910.7 for renewal and expansion of its recognition and invited public comment by April 2, 2001. OSHA received no comments concerning this notice.

In processing CSA's requests, OSHA performed on-site reviews of CSA's facilities listed below. NRTL Program staff recommended the renewal and expansion of CSA's recognition in the on-site review report (see Exhibit 27).

The following is a chronology of the other Federal Register notices published by OSHA concerning CSA's recognition, all of which have involved an expansion of recognition for additional sites, standards, or programs: a request announced on July 20, 1999 (64 FR 38926) and granted on November 4, 1999 (64 FR 60240) a request announced on December 10, 1993 (58 FR 64973) and granted on February 4, 1994 (59 FR 5446); a request announced on March 3, 1994 (59 FR 10173) and granted on August 9, 1994 (59 FR 40602); a request announced on December 8, 1994 (59 FR 63383) and granted on March 24, 1995 (60 FR 15595); and a request announced on July 12, 1996 (61 FR 36763) and granted on November 20, 1996 (61 FR 59110). The renewal incorporates all recognitions granted to CSA through the date of publication of this preliminary finding.

You may obtain or review copies of all public documents pertaining to the CSA application by contacting the Docket Office, Occupational Safety and Health Administration, U.S. Department of Labor, 200 Constitution Avenue, NW, Room N2625, Washington, D.C. 20210. You should refer to Docket No. NRTL-2-92, the permanent record of public information on the CSA recognition.

The current address of the CSA testing facilities already recognized by OSHA are:

Canadian Standards Association, Etobicoke (Toronto), 178 Rexdale Boulevard, Etobicoke, Ontario, M9W 1R3

CSA International, Pointe-Claire (Montreal), 865 Ellingham Street, Pointe-Claire, Quebec H9R 5E8

CSA International, Richmond (Vancouver), 13799 Commerce Parkway, Richmond, British Columbia V6V 2N9

CSA International, Edmonton, 1707-94th Street, Edmonton, Alberta T6N 1E6

CSA International, Cleveland, 8501 East Pleasant Valley Road, Cleveland, Ohio 44131 (formerly part of the American Gas Association)

CSA International, Irvine, 2805 Barranca Parkway, Irvine, California 92606 (formerly part of the American Gas Association)

Programs and Procedures

The renewal of recognition includes CSA's continued use of the following supplemental programs and procedures, based upon the criteria detailed in the March 9, 1995 Federal Register notice (60 FR 12980, 3/9/95). This notice lists nine (9) programs and procedures (collectively, programs), eight of which an NRTL may use to control and audit, but not actually to generate, the data relied upon for product certification. An NRTL's initial recognition will always include the first or basic program, which requires that all product testing and evaluation be performed in-house by the NRTL that will certify the product. OSHA has already recognized CSA for these programs, which are listed, as shown below, in OSHA's informational web page on the CSA recognition (http://www.osha.gov/dts/otpca/nrtl/csa.html).

Program 2: Acceptance of testing data from independent organizations, other than NRTLs.

Program 3: Acceptance of product evaluations from independent organizations, other than NRTLs.

Program 4: Acceptance of witnessed testing data.

Program 5: Acceptance of testing data from non-independent organizations.

Program 6: Acceptance of evaluation data from non-independent organizations (requiring NRTL review prior to marketing).

Program 7: Acceptance of continued certification following minor modifications by the client.

Program 8: Acceptance of product evaluations from organizations that function as part of the International Electrotechnical Commission Certification Body (IEC-CB) Scheme.

Program 9: Acceptance of services other than testing or evaluation performed by subcontractors or agents.

OSHA developed these programs to limit how an NRTL may perform certain aspects of its work and to permit the activities covered under a program only when the NRTL meets certain criteria. In this sense, they are special conditions that the Agency places on an NRTL's recognition. OSHA does not consider these programs in determining whether an NRTL meets the requirements for recognition under 29 CFR 1910.7. However, these programs help to define the scope of that recognition.

Final Decision and Order

The NRTL Program staff has examined the applications, the assessor's report, and other pertinent information. Based upon this examination and the assessor's recommendation, OSHA finds that the Canadian Standards Association has met the requirements of 29 CFR 1910.7 for renewal and expansion of its NRTL recognition. The renewal applies to the sites listed above. In addition, it covers the test standards listed below, and it is subject to the limitations and conditions, also listed below. Pursuant to the authority in 29 CFR 1910.7, OSHA hereby renews and expands the recognition of CSA, subject to these limitations and conditions.

Limitations

Renewal of Recognition of Facilities

OSHA limits the renewal of recognition of CSA to the 6 sites listed above. In addition, similar to other NRTLs that operate multiple sites, the Agency's recognition of any CSA testing site is limited to performing testing to the test standards for which OSHA has recognized CSA and for which the site has the proper capability and control programs.

Renewal of Recognition of Test Standards

OSHA further limits the renewal of recognition of CSA to testing and certification of products to demonstrate conformance to the test standards listed below (see Listing of Test Standards). OSHA has determined that each test standard meets the requirements for an appropriate test standard, within the meaning of 29 CFR 1910.7(c). Some of the test standards for which OSHA previously recognized CSA were no longer appropriate at the time of preparation of the preliminary notice, primarily because they had been withdrawn by the standards developing organization. As a result, we have excluded these test standards in the listing below. However, under OSHA policy, the NRTL may request recognition for comparable test standards, i.e., other appropriate test standards covering similar types of product testing. Since a number of NRTLs are affected by such withdrawn standards, OSHA will publish a separate notice to make the appropriate substitutions for CSA and other NRTLs that were recognized for these standards. The Agency has contacted these NRTLs regarding this matter.

The Agency's recognition of CSA, or any other NRTL, for a particular test standard is always limited to equipment or materials (products) for which OSHA standards require third party testing and certification before use in the workplace. An NRTL's scope of recognition excludes any product(s) falling within the scope of the test standard for which OSHA has no such requirements.

(1) These standards are approved for equipment or materials intended for use in commercial and industrial power system applications. These standards are not approved for equipment or materials intended for use in installations that are excluded from the provisions of Subpart S in 29 CFR 1910, in particular Section 1910.302(a)(2).

Note. -- Testing and certification of gas operated equipment is limited to equipment for use with "liquefied petroleum gas" ("LPG" or "LP-Gas").

The designations and titles of the above test standards were current at the time of the preparation of the notice of the preliminary finding.

Many of the test standards listed above and under the renewal section are approved as American National Standards by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). However, for convenience in compiling the list, we show the designation of the standards developing organization (e.g., UL 1950) for the standard, as opposed to the ANSI designation (e.g., ANSI/UL 1950). Under our procedures, an NRTL recognized for an ANSI-approved test standard may use either the latest proprietary version of the test standard or the latest ANSI version of that standard, regardless of which version appears in its list of test standards. Contact ANSI or the ANSI web site (www.ansi.org) and click "NSSN" to find out whether or not a standard is currently ANSI-approved.

Conditions

The Canadian Standards Association must also abide by the following conditions of the recognition, in addition to those already required by 29 CFR 1910.7:

OSHA must be allowed access to the CSA facilities and records for purposes of ascertaining continuing compliance with the terms of its recognition and to investigate as OSHA deems necessary;

If CSA has reason to doubt the efficacy of any test standard it is using under this program, it must promptly inform the organization that developed the test standard of this fact and provide that organization with appropriate relevant information upon which its concerns are based;

CSA must not engage in or permit others to engage in any misrepresentation of the scope or conditions of its recognition. As part of this condition, CSA agrees that it will allow no representation that it is either a recognized or an accredited Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL) without clearly indicating the specific equipment or material to which this recognition is tied, or that its recognition is limited to certain products;

CSA must inform OSHA as soon as possible, in writing, of any change of ownership, facilities, or key personnel, and of any major changes in its operations as an NRTL, including details;

CSA will continue to meet all the terms of its recognition and will always comply with all OSHA policies pertaining to this recognition; and

CSA will continue to meet the requirements for recognition in all areas where it has been recognized.

Signed at Washington, D.C. this 15 day of June, 2001.

R. Davis Layne,
Acting Assistant Secretary.
