  SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

  I. Notice of Final Decision

      OSHA hereby gives notice of the expansion of the scope of
  recognition of Intertek Testing Services NA, Inc. (ITSNA), as an NRTL.
  ITSNA's expansion covers the addition of twenty-three (23) test
  standards to its scope of recognition.
      OSHA recognition of an NRTL signifies that the organization meets
  the requirements specified by 29 CFR


  1910.7. Recognition is an acknowledgment that the organization can
  perform independent safety testing and certification of the specific
  products covered within its scope of recognition, and is not a
  delegation or grant of government authority. As a result of
  recognition, employers may use products properly approved by the NRTL
  to meet OSHA standards that require testing and certification of the
  products.
      The Agency processes applications by an NRTL for initial
  recognition, or for expansion or renewal of this recognition, following
  requirements in Appendix A to 29 CFR 1910.7. This appendix requires
  that the Agency publish two notices in the Federal Register in
  processing an application. In the first notice, OSHA announces the
  application and provides its preliminary finding and, in the second
  notice, the Agency provides its final decision on the application.
  These notices set forth the NRTL's scope of recognition or
  modifications of that scope. OSHA maintains an informational Web page
  for each NRTL that details its scope of recognition. These pages are
  available from the Agency's Web site at http://www.osha.gov/dts/otpca/nrtl/index.html.
      ITSNA submitted an application, dated April 21, 2015, (OSHA-2007-
  0039-0022) to expand its recognition to include 23 additional test
  standards. OSHA staff performed a detailed analysis of the application
  packet and reviewed other pertinent information. OSHA did not perform
  any on-site reviews in relation to this application.
      OSHA published the preliminary notice announcing ITSNA's expansion
  application in the Federal Register on October 31, 2016 (81 FR 75442).
  The Agency requested comments by November 15, 2016, but it received no
  comments in response to this notice. OSHA now is proceeding with this
  final notice to grant expansion of ITSNA's scope of recognition.
      To obtain or review copies of all public documents pertaining to
  ITSNA's application, go to www.regulations.gov or contact the Docket
  Office, Occupational Safety and Health Administration, U.S. Department
  of Labor, 200 Constitution Avenue NW., Room N-3508, Washington, DC
  20210. Docket No. OSHA-2007-0039 contains all materials in the record
  concerning ITSNA's recognition.

  II. Final Decision and Order

      OSHA staff examined ITSNA's expansion application, its capability
  to meet the requirements of the test standards, and other pertinent
  information. Based on its review of this evidence, OSHA finds that
  ITSNA meets the requirements of 29 CFR 1910.7 for expansion of its
  recognition, subject to the limitation and conditions listed below.
  OSHA, therefore, is proceeding with this final notice to grant ITSNA's
  scope of recognition. OSHA limits the expansion of ITSNA's recognition
  to testing and certification of products for demonstration of
  conformance to the test standards listed in Table 1 below.

  ------------------------------------------------------------------------

      OSHA's recognition of any NRTL for a particular test standard is
  limited to equipment or materials for which OSHA standards require
  third-party testing and certification before using them in the
  workplace. Consequently, if a test standard also covers any products
  for which OSHA does not require such testing and certification, an
  NRTL's scope of recognition does not include these products.
      The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) may approve the
  test standards listed above as American National Standards. However,
  for convenience, we may use the designation of the standards-developing
  organization for the standard as opposed to the ANSI designation. Under
  the NRTL Program's policy (see OSHA Instruction CPL 1-0.3, Appendix C,
  paragraph XIV), any NRTL recognized for a particular test standard may
  use either the proprietary version of the test standard or the ANSI
  version of that standard. Contact ANSI to determine whether a test
  standard is currently ANSI-approved.


  A. Conditions

      In addition to those conditions already required by 29 CFR 1910.7,
  ITSNA must abide by the following conditions of the recognition:
      1. ITSNA must inform OSHA as soon as possible, in writing, of any
  change of ownership, facilities, or key personnel, and of any major
  change in its operations as an NRTL, and provide details of the
  change(s);
      2. ITSNA must meet all the terms of its recognition and comply with
  all OSHA policies pertaining to this recognition; and
      3. ITSNA must continue to meet the requirements for recognition,
  including all previously published conditions on ITSNA's scope of
  recognition, in all areas for which it has recognition.
      Pursuant to the authority in 29 CFR 1910.7, OSHA hereby expands the
  scope of recognition of ITSNA, subject to the limitation and conditions
  specified above.

  III. Authority and Signature

      Jordan Barab, Acting Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational
  Safety and Health, 200 Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20210,
  authorized the preparation of this notice. Accordingly, the Agency is
  issuing this notice pursuant to 29 U.S.C. 657(g)(2), Secretary of
  Labor's Order No. 1-2012 (77 FR 3912, Jan. 25, 2012), and 29 CFR
  1910.7.

      Dated: January 17, 2017.
  Jordan Barab,
  Acting Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health.
