OSHA has made a preliminary determination that the proposed modifications will improve the quality and consistency of information provided to employers and employees regarding chemical hazards and associated protective measures. The Agency anticipates this improved information will enhance the effectiveness of the HCS in ensuring that employees are apprised of the chemical hazards to which they may be exposed, and in reducing the incidence of chemical-related occupational illnesses and injuries. The proposed modifications to the standard include revised criteria for classification of chemical hazards; revised labeling provisions that include requirements for use of standardized signal words, pictograms, hazard statements, and precautionary statements; a specified format for safety data sheets; and related revisions to definitions of terms used in the standard, requirements for employee training on labels and safety data sheets. OSHA is also proposing to modify provisions of a number of other standards, including standards for flammable and combustible liquids, process safety management, and most substance-specific health standards, to ensure consistency with the modified HCS requirements.https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2009/09/30/E9-22483/hazard-communicationFR-Doc-E9-22483

EPA will provide public notice when the Agency is ready to receive direct submissions of certain documents from regulated entities in electronic form consistent with this rulemaking via an EPA electronic document receiving system. This rule does not mandate that regulated entities utilize electronic methods to submit documents in lieu of paper-based submissions. In addition, EPA is not taking final action on the electronic recordkeeping requirements at this time. States, tribes, and local governments will be able to seek EPA approval to accept electronic documents to satisfy reporting requirements under environmental programs that EPA has delegated, authorized, or approved them to administer. This rule includes performance standards against which a state's, tribe's, or local government's electronic document receiving system will be evaluated before EPA will approve changes to the delegated, authorized, or approved program to provide electronic reporting, and establishes a streamlined process that states, tribes, and local governments can use to seek and obtain such approvals.https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2005/10/13/05-19601/cross-media-electronic-reportingFR-Doc-05-19601

The proposed rule would reduce the full-shift permissible exposure limit and the excursion limit for airborne asbestos fibers, and make several nonsubstantive changes to add clarity to the standard. Exposure to asbestos has been associated with lung and other cancers, mesotheliomas, and asbestosis. This proposed rule would help assure that fewer miners who work in an environment where asbestos is present would suffer material impairment of health or functional capacity over their working lifetime.https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2005/07/29/05-14510/asbestos-exposure-limitFR-Doc-05-14510

This action corrects typographical error … On September 18, 2003 (68 FR 54790), EPA issued amendments to the national emission standards for hazardous air pollutants (NESHAP) for asbestos under section 112 of the Clean Air Act (CAA). This action corrects typographical errors in Table 1 to the amendments that were promulgated on September 18, 2003. Section 553 of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA), 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), provides that, when an agency for good cause finds that notice and public procedure are impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest, the agency may issue a rule without providing notice and an opportunity for public comment. We have determined that there is good cause for making this action final without prior proposal and opportunity for comment because the corrections to the final rule do not change the requirements of the final rule. They are minor technical corrections and are not controversial. Thus, notice and public procedure are unnecessary. We find that this constitutes good cause under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B) (see also the final sentence of section 307(d)(1) of the Clean Air Act (CAA), 42 U.S.C. 7607(d)(1), indicating that the good cause provisions of the APA continue to apply to this type of rulemaking under the CAA).https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2004/07/20/04-16447/national-emission-standards-for-hazardous-air-pollutants-for-asbestosFR-Doc-04-16447

In the October 7, 2002 direct final rule (67 FR 62395), we stated that if we received adverse comments by November 6, 2002, the direct final rule would be withdrawn and would not take effect. EPA has received adverse comments from the Dakota Resource Council, submitted with a letter dated November 6, 2002. The comments are specific to the North Dakota air pollution control rule regarding prevention of significant deterioration. Therefore, the sections of the direct final rule regarding the revisions to the North Dakota air pollution control rules are being withdrawn and all public comments received will be addressed in a subsequent final rule based on EPA's October 7, 2002 proposed rule (see 67 FR 62432). EPA will not institute a second comment period on this action. Please note that this withdrawal does not withdraw or impact the sections of EPA's October 7, 2002 direct final rule regarding notice of delegation of authority for New Source Performance Standards nor the change to the approved plan to remove the State's part 61 National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants regulations from the federally-approved SIP (and related update to the part 61 table).https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2002/12/06/02-30941/clean-air-act-approval-and-promulgation-of-air-quality-implementation-plan-revision-for-north-dakotaFR-Doc-02-30941

The purpose of this delegation is to acknowledge ODEQ and LRAPA's ability to implement a NESHAP program and to transfer primary implementation and enforcement responsibility from EPA to ODEQ and LRAPA. Although EPA will look to ODEQ and LRAPA as the leads for implementing the delegated NESHAPs in their respective jurisdictions, EPA retains authority under section 113 of the Act to enforce any applicable emission standard or requirement, if needed. With program approval, ODEQ and LRAPA may choose to request newly promulgated or updated standards by way of a streamlined request and approval process, described below. Concurrent with this direct final rule, EPA is publishing a proposed rule in today's Federal Register. If no adverse comments are received in response to the direct final rule, this rule will become final and no further activity is contemplated.

The purpose of this delegation is to acknowledge IDEQ's ability to implement a NESHAP program and to transfer primary implementation and enforcement responsibility from EPA to IDEQ for Title V sources, also referred to as ``major sources.'' Although EPA will look to IDEQ as the lead for implementing the NESHAPs delegated to IDEQ at major sources in Idaho, EPA retains authority under section 112(l)(7) of the Act to enforce any applicable emission standard or requirement for major sources, if needed. EPA also retains authority to implement and enforce these standards for non-Title V sources. With program approval, IDEQ may choose to request newly promulgated or updated standards and expand its program to include non-Title V sources by-way-of a streamlined request and approval process, described below.
