      Authority: 44 U.S.C. 3507(a)(1)(D).

  SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks to extend PRA authority for
  the Gear Certification Standard information collection requirements
  codified in regulations 29 CFR part 1919. Applicants submit an
  Application for Accreditation to Perform Gear Certification Functions
  (Form OSHA-70) in order to seek OSHA approval to test or examine
  certain equipment and material handling devices, as required under OSHA
  maritime regulations, 29 CFR part 1917 (Marine Terminals) and 29 CFR
  part 1918 (Longshoring). The OSHA uses this information to accredit
  companies to inspect and provide certification for cranes, derricks,
  and accessory gear used in the longshoring, marine terminal, and
  shipyard industries. Certain types of vessel cargo gear and shore-based
  material handling devices used in maritime operations are required to
  have accredited companies conduct examinations. The accredited company
  issues either (1) a certificate to the owner that the piece of
  equipment has passed the examination or (2) a certificate to the owner
  of any deficiency found during the examination. The owner is
  responsible for maintaining a copy of the certification record.
  Occupational Safety and Health Act sections 2(b)(9), 6, 8(c), and
  Longshoremen's and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act section

  41(a) authorize this information collection. See 29 U.S.C. 651(b)(9),
  655, 657(c); 33 U.S.C. 941(a).
      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 1218-0003.
      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 July 31, 2017. The DOL seeks to extend PRA
  authorization for this information collection for three (3) more years,
  without any change to existing requirements. The DOL notes that
  existing information collection requirements submitted to the OMB
  receive a month-to-month extension while they undergo review. For
  additional substantive information about this ICR, see the related
  notice published in the Federal Register on December 22, 2016 (81 FR
  93963).
      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 thirty (30) days of publication of this
  notice in the Federal Register. In order to help ensure appropriate
  consideration, comments should mention OMB Control Number 1218-0003.
  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.
      Agency: DOL-OSHA.
      Title of Collection: Gear Certification Standard.
      OMB Control Number: 1218-0003.
