SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR relates to the regulatory
requirement that a periodic inspection of resistance welding equipment
be made by qualified maintenance personnel and that a certification
record be generated and maintained. The certification shall include the
date of the inspection, the signature of the person who performed the
inspection, and the serial number or other identifier for the equipment
inspected. The record shall be made available to an OSHA inspector upon
request. The maintenance inspection ensures that welding equipment is
in safe operating condition while the maintenance record provides
evidence to workers and Agency compliance officers that employers
performed the required inspections.
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 1218-0207. The current OMB approval is scheduled to
expire on November 30, 2010; 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 August 24, 2010
(75 FR 52037).
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 the appropriate consideration,
comments should reference OMB Control Number 1218-0207. 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.
