OSHA is requesting comment on a new segment being proposed under its Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL) program.
The new segment, the
Satellite Notification and Acceptance Program, or “SNAP,” is a voluntary
program that specifies the criteria and conditions under which any NRTL may
control and audit certain facilities in order to perform particular functions
at those facilities.
The program segment would
allow NRTLs to use facilities referred to as “SNAP sites,” which they would
control and audit, in order to perform so-called “certification functions,”
according to theFederal Registernotice. NRTLs would
need to meet certain criteria and conditions to be approved by OSHA for SNAP.
