SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    OSHA recognizes organizations that provide product-safety testing 
and certification services to manufacturers. These organizations 
perform testing and certification, for purposes of the NRTL Program, to 
U.S. consensus-based product-safety test standards. OSHA does not 
develop or issue these test standards, but generally relies on U.S. 
standards-development organizations (SDOs) accredited by the American 
National Standards Institute (ANSI). The products covered by the NRTL 
Program consist of those items for which OSHA safety standards require 
"certification" by an NRTL. The requirements affect electrical 
products and 38 other types of products.
    OSHA recognition of an organization as an NRTL signifies that the 
organization meets the legal requirements in OSHA regulations at 29 CFR 
1910.7 and the NRTL Program policies in CPL 1-0.3, "NRTL Program 
Policies, Procedures, and Guidelines," December 2, 1999 
("Directive"). Recognition is an acknowledgement by OSHA that the 
NRTL has the capabilities to perform independent safety testing and 
certification of the specific products covered within the NRTL's scope 
of recognition. Recognition of an NRTL by OSHA also allows employers to 
use products certified by that NRTL to meet those OSHA standards that 
require product testing and certification (29 CFR 1910.7(a)).
    An NRTL's scope of recognition consists, in part, of specific test 
standard(s) approved by OSHA for use by the NRTL. Pursuant to OSHA 
regulations, the NRTL must first request to have a test standard 
included in its scope of recognition. OSHA will grant the NRTL's 
request only if the NRTL has the capability to test and examine 
equipment \1\ and materials for workplace safety purposes and to 
determine conformance with the test standard for each relevant item of 
equipment or material that it lists, labels, or accepts (29 CFR 
1910.7(b)(1)). Capability includes proper testing equipment and 
facilities, trained staff, written testing procedures, calibration 
programs, and quality-control programs. An
organization's recognition as an NRTL is, therefore, not for products, 
but for appropriate test standards covering a type of product(s) (29 
CFR 1910.7(b)(1)).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ In this notice, OSHA uses the terms "equipment" and 
"product" or "products" interchangeably.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For OSHA to consider a test standard appropriate, the test standard 
must be current and specify the safety requirements for a specific type 
of product(s) (29 CFR 1910.7(c)). A test standard withdrawn by an SDO 
is no longer considered an appropriate test standard (Directive, App. 
C.XIV.B). It is OSHA's policy to remove acceptance of withdrawn test 
standards by issuing a correction notice in the Federal Register for 
all NRTLs recognized for the withdrawn test standards. However, OSHA 
will recognize an NRTL for an appropriate replacement test standard if 
the NRTL has the requisite testing and evaluation capability for 
implementing the replacement test standard.
    One method that NRTLs may use to show such capability involves an 
analysis to determine whether any testing and evaluation requirements 
of existing test standards in an NRTL's scope are comparable (i.e., are 
completely or substantially identical) to the requirements in the 
replacement test standard. If OSHA's analysis shows the replacement 
test standard does not require additional or different technical 
capability than an existing test standard, the replacement test 
standard is comparable to the existing test standard, and OSHA can add 
the replacement test standard to affected NRTLs' scopes of recognition.
    If OSHA's analysis shows the replacement test standard requires an 
additional or different technical capability than any existing test 
standard, then the replacement test standard is not comparable to any 
existing test standard. In such cases (i.e., when test standards are 
not comparable), each affected NRTL that seeks to have OSHA add the 
replacement test standard to the NRTL's scope of recognition must 
provide information to OSHA that demonstrates its testing and 
evaluation capability to implement that standard.
    In a November 25, 2013, Federal Register notice (78 FR 70349), OSHA 
proposed: (1) Revising its existing policies regarding the 
incorporation of new test standards into the NRTL Program's list of 
appropriate test standards and into NRTLs' scopes of recognition; and 
(2) incorporating new test standards into the NRTL Program's list of 
appropriate test standards. The comment period for the public to submit 
comments on these proposed actions ended on December 26, 2013.
    OSHA received four comments filed in a timely manner (OSHA-2013-
0012-0006, OSHA-2013-0012-0007, OSHA-2013-0012-0008, OSHA-2013-0012-
0009), and one comment filed after the comment period closed (OSHA-
2013-0012-0010), on its proposal. All comments are available for 
viewing at http://www.regulations.gov under docket number OSHA-2013-0012. In 
this final-decision notice, OSHA addresses these comments and adopts 
its proposal with limited revision that reflects some commenters' 
concerns. OSHA describes the proposal, comments, and its final decision 
in more detail below.

II. Final Decision Revising Existing OSHA Policy

A. Revision to Existing Policy for Incorporating New Test Standards 
Into the NRTL Program's List of Appropriate Test Standards

    In the November 25, 2013 Federal Register notice, OSHA proposed 
revising its existing policy regarding the incorporation of new test 
standards into the NRTL Program's list of appropriate test standards. 
Pursuant to OSHA's existing policy, OSHA incorporates test standards 
into the list of appropriate test standards only when OSHA processes an 
NRTL's application for recognition (either initial or expansion), or 
when OSHA incorporates into an NRTL's scope of recognition a comparable 
replacement test standard for a withdrawn test standard (Directive, 
Chapter 2; App. C.XIV.B). OSHA believes that the existing policy delays 
the acceptance process for valid test standards, and proposed revising 
the existing policy to expedite incorporation of new test standards 
into the NRTL Program's list of appropriate test standards and into 
NRTLs' scopes of recognition.
    OSHA becomes aware of new test standards through various avenues. 
For example, OSHA becomes aware of new test standards by: (1) 
Monitoring notifications issued by certain SDOs; (2) reviewing 
applications by NRTLs or applicants seeking recognition to include a 
new test standard in their scopes of recognition; and (3) obtaining 
notification from manufacturers, manufacturing organizations, other 
government agencies, or other parties that a new test standard may be 
appropriate to add to its list of appropriate standards. Accordingly, 
OSHA proposed to expand the existing process whereby it incorporates 
new test standards into the NRTL Program's list of appropriate test 
standards. Under the proposed policy, OSHA would not only include new 
test standards in its list of appropriate test standards under the 
conditions described by its existing policy, but would include new test 
standards in the list when OSHA determined that such test standards are 
appropriate to add to the list. OSHA may determine to include a new 
test standard in the list, for example, if the test standard is for a 
particular type of product that another test standard also covers, 
covers a type of product that no standard previously covered, or be 
otherwise new to the NRTL Program.
    Under the proposed policy, OSHA first would make a preliminary 
determination that the new test standard is appropriate under the NRTL 
Program regulations (29 CFR 1910.7(c)). The Agency then would 
periodically issue a Federal Register notice proposing to include new 
test standards that it identifies as appropriate in its list of 
appropriate test standards. When an SDO withdraws test standards, OSHA 
also may propose in a Federal Register notice that new test standards 
replace withdrawn test standards in NRTLs' scopes of recognition. After 
OSHA publishes the preliminary determination in a Federal Register 
notice, it would give the public an opportunity to comment and, after 
reviewing these comments and other record evidence, would issue, in the 
Federal Register, a final determination.
    No commenter objected to this proposed policy revision. The 
National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) and Underwriters 
Laboratories, Inc. (UL), expressed support for the proposed policy 
(OSHA-2013-0012-0008, OSHA-2013-0012-0009). Therefore, OSHA hereby 
revises the policy, as proposed.
    NEMA asked that OSHA include the effective dates of test standards 
in its list of appropriate test standards (OSHA-2013-0012-0008). In 
explaining this comment, NEMA asserted that manufacturers and NRTLs use 
the time between the publication and effective dates of a test standard 
to become informed of the new requirements. While this might be the 
case, OSHA currently does not evaluate test standards with future 
effective dates for use in the NRTL Program. OSHA accepts a test 
standard as appropriate only after the effective date of the standard.
    NEMA stated further that, in determining whether a test standard is 
appropriate, OSHA should "continue to rely primarily on U.S. standards 
developers accredited by the American National Standards Institute 
(ANSI)," which "provides reasonable assurance that the standard is a 
good standard and likely to have wide use;". NEMA then stated that 
OSHA "should only consider standards developed by organizations
considered to be primary sources that are known to produce universally 
acceptable standards representing good design."
    OSHA considers the appropriateness of test standards on a case-by-
case basis. OSHA notes, however, that the NRTL Program regulation 
constrains its discretion in this area; this regulation requires that, 
for OSHA to accept a test standard, the test standard must, at a 
minimum, "provide an adequate level of safety" (29 CFR 1910.7(d)). 
Also pursuant to the regulation, OSHA generally accepts test standards 
developed by SDOs accredited by ANSI (29 CFR 1910.7(c)). ANSI 
accreditation ensures that the SDO meets the criteria required in the 
regulation for OSHA to consider a test standard appropriate.\2\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ The NRTL Program regulation provides that an "appropriate 
test standard" is "a document which specifies the safety 
requirements for specific equipment or class of equipment and is: 
(1) [r]ecognized in the United States as a safety standard providing 
an adequate level of safety, and (2) [c]ompatible with and 
maintained current with periodic revisions of applicable national 
codes and installation standards, and (3) [d]eveloped by a standards 
developing organization under a method providing for input and 
consideration of views of industry groups, experts, users, 
consumers, governmental authorities, and others having broad 
experience in the safety field involved, or (4) [i]n lieu of 
paragraphs (c) (1), (2), and (3), the standard is currently 
designated as an American National Standards Institute (ANSI) 
safety-designated product standard or an American Society for 
Testing and Materials (ASTM) test standard used for evaluation of 
products or materials" (29 CFR 1910.7(c)).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

B. Revision to Policy for Expanding NRTLs' Scopes of Recognition

    Under existing OSHA policy, an NRTL must apply for an expansion of 
recognition, pursuant to the procedures in 29 CFR 1910.7, App. A, if 
the NRTL wants OSHA to incorporate into its scope of recognition a 
replacement test standard that is not comparable to a test standard 
that OSHA is removing from that NRTL's scope of recognition because, 
for example, an SDO withdrew the predecessor test standard. In the 
November 25, 2013, Federal Register notice, OSHA proposed modifying 
this policy to provide for an abbreviated recognition process that 
allows NRTLs currently recognized for the predecessor standard to 
submit to OSHA, in lieu of an application for expansion, only 
information that demonstrates that the NRTL has the capability to 
perform the testing and evaluation required in the areas of the 
replacement test standard that are not equivalent or comparable to the 
standard being replaced.
    Therefore, under the new policy, when OSHA becomes aware of a 
replacement test standard that is not comparable to a test standard 
that OSHA is removing from an NRTL's scope of recognition, OSHA would 
invite that NRTL, via email or letter, to submit specified information 
that OSHA believes demonstrates the requisite testing and evaluation 
capability. OSHA would include, in the letter or email, a comparability 
table for the replacement test standard that details proposed 
substantive differences between the existing and replacement test 
standards that OSHA believes the NRTL must address for OSHA to 
recognize the NRTL for the replacement standard. OSHA would follow the 
procedures specified by 29 CFR 1910.7, App. A, in determining whether 
it should incorporate the replacement test standard into the affected 
NRTL's scope of recognition. OSHA then would issue a preliminary 
determination in the Federal Register, provide the public an 
opportunity to comment on the preliminary determination, and, after 
reviewing the comments and other record evidence, issue a final 
determination in the Federal Register on whether it will incorporate 
the replacement test standard into the affected NRTL's scope of 
recognition. In making a preliminary or final determination, OSHA also 
would follow other applicable procedures specified by 29 CFR 1910.7, 
App. A, such as requesting additional information, conducting 
appropriate on-site reviews, or initiating special reviews. OSHA 
believes the proposed policy would expedite the recognition process of 
replacement test standards issued by SDOs.
    No commenter objected to the proposed policy revision. UL expressed 
support for the proposed revision (OSHA-2013-0012-0009). In its 
comments, UL asked that OSHA further revise its policy to allow the use 
of the proposed abbreviated recognition process for new test standards 
that have no relation to predecessor test standards currently in an 
NRTL's scope of recognition (as opposed to replacement test standards 
that would replace predecessor test standards that OSHA is removing 
from the NRTL's scope of recognition). UL revised the language in the 
proposed policy, in part, as follows:

    [W]hen an NRTL seeks the addition of a new standard to its 
current scope of recognition, the NRTL may submit specified 
information that demonstrates it has the requisite testing and 
evaluation capability based on standards in its current scope of 
recognition. The specified information would include reference to 
existing standards in the NRTL's scope that require the capabilities 
needed for the new standard. If necessary, the NRTL would also 
identify substantive differences in needed capability between the 
new standard and existing test standards in its scope of 
recognition. The NRTL would provide information about its 
capabilities for those substantive differences based on the current 
OSHA NRTL application for scope expansion.

(Id.) According to UL, OSHA should require the application process 
specified by 29 CFR 1910.7, App. A, only "[f]or the rare situations 
where an NRTL wishes to expand into new standards where it has little 
or none of the needed capabilities" (id.).

    OSHA is not adopting UL's revised language. Accordingly, the key 
aspects of OSHA's new policy are that OSHA can now initiate the 
recognition process when it becomes aware of a replacement test 
standard that is not comparable to a test standard that it is removing 
from an NRTL's scope of recognition, and OSHA will inform the NRTL, in 
the first instance, of substantive differences between the existing and 
replacement test standards that OSHA believes the NRTL must address for 
OSHA to recognize the NRTL for the replacement standard. Under UL's 
revised language, the NRTL, not OSHA, would initiate the recognition 
process, and the NRTL, not OSHA, would inform OSHA of its capability to 
perform the test standard.
    UL's revised language would not, therefore, significantly expedite 
the recognition process for new test standards because UL's revised 
language is substantially similar to the existing application process. 
Neither OSHA's new policy, nor UL's revised language, would permit the 
NRTL to avoid key procedural requirements of the application process. 
Indeed, UL agrees, stating in its revised language that "OSHA would 
follow the procedures specified by 29 CFR 1910.7, App. A, in 
determining whether it should incorporate the new test standard into 
the NRTL's scope of recognition" (id.). UL stated further in its 
revised language, similar to what OSHA states in its new policy, that 
"OSHA would issue a preliminary determination in the Federal Register, 
provide the public an opportunity to comment on the preliminary 
determination, and, after reviewing the comments and other record 
evidence, issue a final determination in the Federal Register on 
whether it will incorporate the new test standard into the affected 
NRTL's scope of recognition," and "in making a preliminary or final 
determination, OSHA also would follow other applicable procedures 
specified by 29 CFR 1910.7, App. A, such as requesting additional 
information, conducting appropriate on-site reviews, or initiating 
special reviews" (id.).

    OSHA notes also that its new policy preserves an NRTL's rights, 
under existing procedures, to file an application for recognition of 
new or replacement test standards. Moreover, OSHA currently allows 
NRTLs, through the existing application process, to provide 
comparability assessments as an abbreviated method to demonstrate an 
NRTL's capability to meet the requirements of an appropriate test 
standard. Using this process, the NRTL provides a detailed explanation 
of comparability as part of its application for the test standard. 
Therefore, UL's revised language is unnecessary.

III. Final Decision Adding Test Standards to the NRTL Program's List of 
Appropriate Test Standards

    Table 1, below, lists test standards that OSHA is adding to the 
NRTL Program under the new policy. OSHA preliminarily determined, as 
specified in the November 25, 2013, Federal Register notice (see 78 FR 
70349), that these test standards are appropriate test standards and 
proposed to include these test standards in the NRTL Program's list of 
appropriate test standards.
    No commenter objected to the proposal to include these test 
standards in the NRTL Program's list of appropriate test standards. UL 
and NEMA expressed support for the proposal (OSHA-2013-0012-0008, OSHA-
2013-0012-0009). OSHA, therefore, with one minor revision discussed in 
the following paragraph, is making a final determination that these 
test standards are appropriate test standards, and, therefore, is 
adding these test standards to the NRTL Program's list of appropriate 
test standards.
    In the proposal, OSHA described one test standard as AAMI ES 60601-
1, "Medical Electrical Equipment--Part 1-2: General requirements for 
Basic Safety and Essential Performance-Collateral Standard: 
Electromagnetic Compatibility (third edition)." Several commenters 
stated that OSHA listed the incorrect designation and title for this 
test standard (OSHA-2013-0012-0006, OSHA-2013-0012-0007, OSHA-2013-
0012-0009). OSHA concurs with these commenters and, in the final table, 
describes the test standard as "ANSI/AAMI ES60601-1:2005/(R)2012, 
Medical electrical equipment, Part 1: General requirements for basic 
safety and essential performance (with amendments)."
    Mr. Dale Hallerberg stated that the list of appropriate standards 
should include, in addition to ANSI/AAMI ES60601-1:2005/(R)2012, 
standards that are collateral to ANSI/AAMI ES60601-1:2005/(R)2012, such 
as ANSI/AAMI ES60601-1-2 through ANSI/AAMI ES60601-1-12 (OSHA-2013-
0012-0007). Moreover, UL asked that OSHA consider incorporating 13 
additional test standards in the NRTL Program's list of appropriate 
test standards (OSHA-2013-0012-0009). Finally, the Crane Power Line 
Safety Organization (CPLSO), in a late-filed comment, asked OSHA to 
consider incorporating CPLSO 14, which addresses testing crane 
insulating-link devices, in the NRTL Program's list of appropriate test 
standards (OSHA-2013-0012-0010). These recommended additions are beyond 
the scope of the present action. OSHA will, however, consider whether 
these recommended additions are appropriate test standards when it 
proposes additions to the list of appropriate test standards in a 
future Federal Register notice.
