The rules of practice for administrative adjudications for the enforcement of the safety and health
standards contained in Subpart C of this part and the following subparts shall be the same as those published in Part 6 of this title with respect to
safety and health violations of the Service Contract Act of 1965 (69 Stat. 1035), except as provided in paragraph (b) of this section.
In the case of debarment, the findings required by section 107(d) of the Act shall be made by the
hearing examiner or the Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health, as the case may be. Whenever, as provided in section
107(d)(2), a contractor requests termination of debarment before the end of the 3-year period prescribed in that section, the request shall be filed
in writing with the Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health who shall publish a notice in the FEDERAL REGISTER that the
request has been received and afford interested persons an opportunity to be heard upon the request, and thereafter the provisions of Part 6 of this
title shall apply with respect to prehearing conferences, hearings and related matters, and decisions and orders.
