NIOSH Docket Number 216, CDC-2013-0004
Amendments to Respirator Certification Fees
The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) proposed to revise the fee structure established in 42 CFR Part 84 (Part 84), currently used by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), within the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to charge respirator manufacturers for the examination, inspection, and testing of respirators which are submitted to NIOSH for the purpose of creating or modifying a certificate of approval. Existing regulations in Part 84, Subpart C--Fees reflect prices for respirator testing and approval that were promulgated in 1972, and have not kept pace with the actual costs of providing these services that benefit respirator manufacturers.
The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced a public meeting. The purpose of this meeting was to allow stakeholders to present information the impact of an increase on respirator fees on individual respirator manufacturers, the respirator market, or on those industries that rely on NIOSH approved respiratory equipment. The meeting was held on April 30, 2013.
