SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) hereby gives notice of changes to the scope of recognition of the Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratories (NRTLs) listed below. Specifically, some of the test standards that OSHA currently includes in the scope of recognition of these NRTLs are no longer “appropriate test standards” primarily because they have been withdrawn or replaced. As a result, we will delete them from the scope of recognition of each affected NRTL, as listed below in this notice. This modification in scope will be noted by making appropriate changes to the listing of test standards in our informational Web page for each NRTL, which detail OSHA's official scope of recognition for the NRTL. These Web pages can be accessed at http://www.osha-slc.gov/​dts/​otpca/​nrtl/​index.html. In this notice, we list the test standards to be removed for each NRTL below under the heading “Withdrawn or Replaced Standards.” We provide the following information for those who may be unfamiliar with OSHA requirements concerning NRTLs.

OSHA recognition of any NRTL signifies that the organization has met the legal requirements in section 1910.7 of Title 29, Code of Federal Regulations (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 certified” by the NRTL to meet OSHA standards that require testing and certification.

In testing and certifying (i.e., approving) such products, NRTLs must demonstrate that the products conform to “appropriate test standards.” This term is defined under 29 CFR 1910.7(c) and essentially means consensus-based product safety test standards developed and maintained current by U.S.-based standards developing organizations (SDOs). Such test standards are not OSHA standards, which are general requirements that employers must meet, but, individually, specify technical safety requirements that a particular type of product must meet.

OSHA recognizes each NRTL for a particular scope of recognition, which includes a list of those product safety test standards that the NRTL may use in approving products. As a normal part of its operations, an SDO occasionally withdraws existing test standards or adopts replacement test standards. In such cases, OSHA can no longer consider the withdrawn or replaced standards as “appropriate,” and as a result, the Agency can no longer recognize NRTLs for the standard.

To substitute other test standards for those we are removing, under our policy, the NRTL may request or OSHA can provide recognition for comparable test standards, i.e., other appropriate test standards covering comparable product testing. We list these test standards below for each NRTL under the headings “Comparable Replacement Standards.” In one case (UL 1598), OSHA already includes the comparable test standard in the NRTL's scope. However, in many cases, there is no replacement standard or the NRTL did not request one prior to publication of this notice. However, if we receive such a request after publication of this notice and determine the test standard is “comparable,” as described above, OSHA will add it to the NRTL's scope of recognition and therefore to OSHA's informational web page for the NRTL.

*Note on addition of UL 3111-1 to Wyle's scope:

This test standard is comparable to UL 1244, which is currently included in Wyle's scope of recognition. Wyle requested the addition of UL 3111-1 to its scope due to the pending withdrawal of UL 1244. However, as noted in the note below, UL 3111-1 is also due to be replaced. Therefore, the following note also applies to the addition of this standard.

**Note on test standard to be withdrawn:

This standard is due to be withdrawn by the standards development organization. However, as of the date of this notice, the OSHA NRTL Program staff has not determined whether or not there will be a replacement test standard. As a result, we will not remove this standard from the scope of the NRTL upon publication of this notice. Once we make the above determination, OSHA will replace or remove this standard, as appropriate. This note applies to the following test standards : UL 1244, UL 3111-1, UL 8730-2-4, and UL 8730-2-9.

In accordance with OSHA policy pertaining to recognition of replacement standards, the Agency only publishes one Federal Register notices to note the changes to the NRTL's scope of recognition. Changes to each NRTL's recognition are limited to those described in this notice. All other terms and conditions of each NRTL's recognition remain the same.
