SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION
:
I. Notice of Final Decision
OSHA hereby gives notice of the
expansion of the scope of recognition of
MET Laboratories, Inc. (MET), as a
NRTL. MET’s expansion covers the
addition of one test standard to the
NRTL scope of recognition.
OSHA recognition of a NRTL signifies
that the organization meets the
requirements specified by 29 CFR
1910.7. Recognition is an
acknowledgment that the organization
can perform independent safety testing
and certification of the specific products
covered within the scope of recognition
and is not a delegation or grant of
government authority. As a result of
recognition, employers may use

Federal Register / Vol. 87, No. 48 / Friday, March 11, 2022 / Notices
products properly approved by the
NRTL to meet OSHA standards that
require testing and certification of the
products.
The agency processes applications by
a 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 the
preliminary finding and, in the second
notice, the agency provides the 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 the scope of recognition.
These pages are available from the
agency’s website at http://
www.osha.gov/dts/otpca/nrtl/
index.html.
MET submitted one application dated
September 25, 2018 (OSHA–2006–
0028–0080), to add one test standard to
MET’s NRTL scope of recognition.
OSHA staff performed a detailed
analysis of the application packet and
reviewed other pertinent information.
OSHA did not perform any on-site
reviews in relation to the application.
OSHA published the preliminary
notice announcing MET’s expansion
application in the Federal Register on
January 26, 2022 (87 FR 4051). The
agency requested comments by February
10, 2022, but it received no comments
in response to this notice. OSHA now is
proceeding with this final notice to
grant expansion of MET’s scope of
recognition.
To obtain or review copies of all
public documents pertaining to MET’s
application, go to http://
www.regulations.gov or contact the
Docket Office, Occupational Safety and
Health Administration, U.S. Department
of Labor. Docket No. OSHA–2006–0028
contains all materials in the record
concerning MET’s recognition. Please
note: Due to the COVID–19 pandemic,
the Docket Office is closed to the public
at this time but can be contacted at (202)
693–2350 (TTY (877) 889–5627).
II. Final Decision and Order
OSHA staff examined MET’s
expansion application, the capability to
meet the requirements of the test
standard, and other pertinent
information. Based on the review of this
evidence, OSHA finds that MET meets
the requirements of 29 CFR 1910.7 for
expansion of the NRTL scope of
recognition, subject to the limitation
and conditions listed below. OSHA,
therefore, is proceeding with this final
notice to grant MET’s scope of
recognition. OSHA limits the expansion
of MET’s recognition to testing and
certification of products for
demonstration of conformance to the
test standard listed in Table 1.

1. Standard for Safety of Power
Converters for Use in Photo-
voltaic Power Systems—Part
1: General requirements.
OSHA’s recognition of any NRTL for
a particular test standard is limited to
equipment or materials for which OSHA
standards require third-party testing and
certification before using them in the
workplace. Consequently, if a test
standard also covers any products for
which OSHA does not require such
testing and certification, a NRTL’s scope
of recognition does not include these
products.
The American National Standards
Institute (ANSI) may approve the test
standards listed above as American
National Standards. However, for
convenience, the use of the designation
of the standards-developing
organization for the standard as opposed
to the ANSI designation may occur.
Under the NRTL Program’s policy (see
OSHA Instruction CPL 01–00–004,
Chapter 2, Section VIII), only standards
determined to be appropriate test
standards may be approved for NRTL
recognition. Any NRTL recognized for a
particular test standard may use either
the proprietary version of the test
standard or the ANSI version of that
standard. Contact ANSI to determine
whether a test standard is currently
ANSI-approved.
A. Conditions
In addition to those conditions
already required by 29 CFR 1910.7, MET
must abide by the following conditions
of the recognition:
1. MET must inform OSHA as soon as
possible, in writing, of any change of
ownership, facilities, or key personnel,
and of any major change in their
operations as a NRTL, and provide
details of the change(s);
2. MET must meet all the terms of the
NRTL recognition and comply with all
OSHA policies pertaining to this
recognition; and
3. MET must continue to meet the
requirements for recognition, including
all previously published conditions on
MET’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 scope
of recognition of MET, subject to the
limitations and conditions specified
above.
III. Authority and Signature
James S. Frederick, Deputy Assistant
Secretary of Labor for Occupational
Safety and Health, 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. 8–2020
(85 FR 58393, Sept. 18, 2020)), and 29
CFR 1910.7.
Signed at Washington, DC, on February 28,
2022.

Deputy Assistant Secretary of Labor for
Occupational Safety and Health.
