OSHA final rule released by OMB.
The next step will be for OSHA to review and revise the Final Rule as directed by OMB prior to publication in the Federal Register. The exact date of its likely publication is not known, and depends on the extent of the changes that have been directed by OMB. If those changes are significant, for example, OSHA may feel the need to publish another Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) to gather additional comments from industry. On the other hand, if the required or suggested changes are minimal, publication could issue quickly.
ACA is closely monitoring the situation, having been active in commenting on OSHAs efforts throughout the admin^ istrative process. It is expected that the Final Rule will require adoption over time of the GHS approach to product labeling and (material) safety data sheets by U.S. manufacturers. Once additional technical details are available, ACA will notify all members, and assess appropriate and required actions.
