Legal Authority: 29 USC 655(b)

CFR Citation: 29 CFR 1910

Legal Deadline: None

Abstract: OSHA requested information and comments on a specific proposal submitted to OSHA to permit the use of a Supplier's Declaration of Conformity (SDoC) as part of, or as an alternative to, the Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratories (NRTLs) product approval process. NTRLs are third-party (i.e., independent) organizations, and many of OSHA's workplace standards require that certain types of equipment be approved by an NRTL. Under SDoC, manufacturers self-approve their products.

Based upon the review and analysis of the information gathered during the RFI process, OSHA has confirmed that its third-party approval requirements are effective in safeguarding product safety in the workplace. OSHA has decided to take no further action on the proposal and to withdraw this agenda item from the Regulatory Agenda.
