SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Background

    The Department of Labor, as part of its continuing effort to reduce 
paperwork and respondent (i.e., employer) burden, conducts a 
preclearance consultation program to provide the public with an 
opportunity to comment on proposed and continuing information 
collection requirements in accord with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 
1995 (PRA) (44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)). This program ensures that 
information is in the desired format, reporting burden (time and costs) 
is minimal, collection instruments are clearly understood, and OSHA's 
estimate of the information collection burden is accurate. The 
Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (the OSH Act) (29 U.S.C. 651 
et seq.) authorizes information collection by employers as necessary or 
appropriate for enforcement of the OSH Act or for developing 
information regarding the causes and prevention of occupational 
injuries, illnesses, and accidents (29 U.S.C. 657). The OSH Act also 
requires that OSHA obtain such information with minimum burden upon 
employers, especially those operating small businesses, and to reduce 
to the maximum extent feasible unnecessary duplication of efforts in 
obtaining information (29 U.S.C. 657).
    Certification of repair (Sec.  1910.177(d)(3)(iv)). This paragraph 
requires that when restraining devices and barriers are removed from 
service because they are defective, they shall not be returned to 
service until they are repaired and reinspected. If the repair is 
structural, the manufacturer or a Registered Professional Engineer must 
certify that the strength requirements specified in Sec.  
1910.177(d)(3)(i) of the Standard have been met.
    The certification records are used to assure that equipment has 
been properly repaired. The certification records also provide the most 
efficient means for OSHA compliance officers to determine that an 
employer is complying with the Standard.
    Marking or tagging of wheel components (1910.177(e)(2)). This 
paragraph requires that defective wheels and wheel components ``be 
marked or tagged unserviceable and removed from the service area.'' 
Under this requirement, OSHA is providing employers with sufficient 
information from which they can derive the wording to use in marking 
the object or constructing a tag. Therefore, this provision imposes no 
paperwork burden because it falls within the portion of 5 CFR 
1320(c)(2) that states, ``The public disclosure of information 
originally supplied by the Federal government to the recipient for the 
purpose of disclosure to the public is not included within this 
definition [of `collection of information']''.

II. Special Issues for Comment

    OSHA has a particular interest in comments on the following issues:
     Whether the proposed information collection requirements 
are necessary for the proper performance of the Agency's functions, 
including whether the information is useful;
     The accuracy of OSHA's estimate of the burden (time and 
costs) of the information collection requirements, including the 
validity of the methodology and assumptions used;
     The quality, utility, and clarity of the information 
collected; and
     Ways to minimize the burden on employers who must comply. 
For example, by using automated or other technological information 
collection and transmission techniques.

collection requirements contained in the Standard on Servicing Multi-

will summarize the comments submitted in response to this notice and 
will include this summary in the request to OMB.

    Title: Servicing Multi-Piece and Single Piece Rim Wheels (29 CFR
