SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks to extend OMB authorization 
for information collections contained in the Derricks Standard of 
regulations 29 CFR 1910.181. The specified requirements are for marking 
the rated load on derricks, preparing certification records that verify 
the inspection of derrick ropes, and posting warning signs while the 
derrick is undergoing adjustments and repairs. Certification records 
must be maintained and disclosed upon request.
    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 1218-0222. For additional substantive information 
about this ICR, see the related notice published in the Federal 
Register on April 9, 2013 (78 FR 21157).
    OMB authorization for an ICR cannot be for more than three (3) 
years without renewal, and the current approval for this collection is 
scheduled to expire on December 31, 2013. The DOL seeks to extend PRA 
authorization for this information collection for three (3) more years, 
without any change to existing requirements. It should also be noted 
that existing information collection requirements submitted to the OMB 
receive a month-to-month extension while they undergo review.
    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 help ensure appropriate
consideration, comments should mention OMB Control Number 1218-0222. 
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.
