DOL/OSHA RIN: 1218-AC83 Publication ID: Spring 2013 
Title: ●Definition and Requirements for a Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory(Section 610 Review) 
Abstract: OSHA proposes to issue a Request for Information (RFI) for the Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL) Program. The NRTL Program was recently the subject of a GAO study, which recommended that OSHA reexamine the NRTL Program's structure and accreditation application procedures to identify and implement any alternatives that better align program design with resource levels and improve program timelines. As a result of the complexity of several issues identified in the GAO study, OSHA needs to gather more information before it can address some of the items identified and determine whether it must undertake rulemaking. The proposed RFI will solicit information on those topics identified in the GAO study as well as other topics proposed through discussions with stakeholders. Such topics include, but are not limited to, the use of a third party accreditation model, increased alignment with international standards, and allowable certification marks for the NRTL Program.
