    California State Plan; Level of Federal Enforcement

OSHA has determined that the California State occupational safety and health program has developed sufficiently to justify suspension of most concurrent Federal enforcement activity. On 10/5/89, OSHA entered into an agreement with California whereby concurrent Federal enforcement authority would not be initiated with regard to most Federal occupational safety and health standards in issues covered by the State''s plan. Among other areas, the agreement provides that Federal OSHA will continue to be responsible for enforcement in occupational safety and health issues not covered by the State plan and for Federal standards not yet promulgated by the State, and may reassume jurisdiction in other limited circumstances where the State is unable to fulfil its enforcement obligations. Effective Date: 10/5/89. CONTACT: James Foster 523-8184.
