SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Dipping and Coating Operations Standard
requires employers to post a conspicuous sign near each piece of
electrostatic detearing equipment that notifies employees of the
minimum safe distance they must maintain between goods undergoing
electrostatic detearing and the electrodes or conductors of the
equipment used in the process. See 29 CFR 1910.126(g)(4). 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 1218-0237. For additional substantive information
about this ICR, see the related notice published in the Federal
Register on April 9, 2013 (78 FR 21159).
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 1218-0237.
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.
