SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Determination Regarding TUV SUD America, Inc.

    TUV SUD America, Inc., (TUVAM) requested that OSHA delete three 
test standards (see Exhibit 1) from its scope of recognition. 
Subsection II.D of Appendix A to 29 CFR 1910.7 provides that OSHA must 
inform the public of such a reduction in scope. Accordingly, OSHA 
hereby notifies the public that it is deleting the test standards (1) 
UL 551 Transformer-type Arc-welding Machine, (2) UL 1484 Residential 
Gas Detectors, and (3) UL 1662 Electric Chain Saws from TUVAM's scope 
of recognition as of August 23, 2013. As of August 23, 2013, OSHA will 
no longer accept certifications by TUVAM that products conform to UL 
551, UL1484, or UL 1662. OSHA will delete these standards from TUVAM's 
scope of recognition on the OSHA Web page.
    TUVAM must notify those NRTL clients for which TUVAM certified that 
the clients' products conformed to UL 551, UL 1484, and UL 1662 that 
TUVAM's scope of recognition no longer includes these standards. 
TUVAM's notification to each affected client also must inform the 
client that it must now obtain its product-certification services, with 
respect to UL 551, UL 1484, and UL 1662, from an NRTL with a scope of 
recognition that continues to include these standards. TUVAM's 
notification to each affected client must be in writing and received by 
the client within two weeks of the date of this notice.
