  SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

  I. Notice of Final Decision

      OSHA hereby gives notice of the expansion of the scope of
  recognition of TUV SUD America, Inc. (TUV SUD) as an NRTL. TUV SUD's
  expansion covers the addition of two recognized testing and
  certification sites to its NRTL scope of recognition.
      OSHA recognition of an NRTL signifies that the organization meets
  the requirements specified in 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.
      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.
      TUVAM submitted an application, dated May 19, 2015 (OSHA-2007-0043-
  0020), to expand its recognition to include the addition of two
  recognized testing and certification sites located at: TUV SUD,
  Ridlerstrasse 65, D-80339, Munich, Germany; and TUV SUD, Daimlerstrasse
  11, D-85748, Garching, Germany. OSHA staff performed a detailed
  analysis of the application and other pertinent information. OSHA staff
  also performed on-site reviews of TUVAM's Munich testing and
  certification facility on June 6, 2016 and TUVAM's Garching testing and
  certification facility on June 7, 2016 and recommended expansion of
  TUVAM's recognition to include these two sites.
      OSHA published the preliminary notice announcing TUVAM's expansion
  application in the Federal Register on March 9, 2017 (82 FR 13143). The
  Agency requested comments by March 24, 2017, but it received no
  comments in response to this notice. OSHA now is proceeding with this
  final notice to grant expansion of TUVAM's scope of recognition.
      To obtain or review copies of all public documents pertaining to
  TUVAM's application, go to http://www.regulations.gov or contact the Docket
  Office, Occupational Safety and Health Administration, U.S. Department
  of Labor, 200 Constitution Avenue NW., Room N-2625, Washington, DC
  20210. Docket No. OSHA-2007-0043 contains all materials in the record
  concerning TUVAM's recognition.

  II. Final Decision and Order

      OSHA staff examined TUVAM's expansion application, conducted two
  detailed on-site assessments, and examined other pertinent information.
  Based on its review of this evidence, OSHA finds that TUVAM 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 TUVAM's scope of
  recognition. OSHA limits the expansion of TUVAM's recognition to
  include the sites at TUVAM Munich, Munich, Germany and TUVAM Garching,
  Garching, Germany as listed above. OSHA's recognition of these sites
  limits TUVAM to performing product testing and certifications only to
  the test standards for which the site has the proper capability and
  programs, and for test standards in TUVAM's scope of recognition. This
  limitation is consistent with the recognition that OSHA grants to other
  NRTLs that operate multiple sites.

  A. Conditions

      In addition to those conditions already required by 29 CFR 1910.7,
  TUVAM must abide by the following conditions of the recognition:
      1. TUVAM 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. TUVAM must meet all the terms of its recognition and comply with
  all OSHA policies pertaining to this recognition; and
      3. TUVAM must continue to meet the requirements for recognition,
  including all previously published conditions on TUVAM'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
  recognition of TUVAM, subject to the limitation and conditions
  specified above.

  III. Authority and Signature

      Dorothy Dougherty, Deputy 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.

      Signed at Washington, DC, on June 15, 2017.
  Dorothy Dougherty,
  Deputy Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health.
