I. Determination Regarding Southwest Research Institute
Southwest Research Institute (SWRI) requested OSHA to delete a test standard, UL 60950—Information Technology Equipment (see Exhibit OSHA-2006-0041-003), from its scope of recognition. Subsection II.D of Appendix A to 29 CFR 1910.7 provides that OSHA must inform the public of such a reduction in scope. Accordingly, OSHA hereby notifies the public that it is deleting UL 60950 from SWRI's scope of recognition as of May 30, 2013. As of May 30, 2013, OSHA will no longer accept certifications by SWRI that products conform to UL 60950, and OSHA will delete UL 60950 from SWRI's scope of recognition on the OSHA Web page.
SWRI must notify those NRTL clients for which SWRI certified that products conformed to UL 60950 that SWRI's scope of recognition no longer includes UL 60950. SWRI's notification to each affected client also must inform the client that it must now obtain its product certification services, with respect to UL 60950, from an NRTL with a scope of recognition that continues to include UL 60950. SWRI's notification to each affected client must be in writing and received by the client within two weeks of the date of this Notice.
