    Extension of Administrative Stay of paragraphs (m)(1)(i) through (m)(4)(ii) of Final Rule on Occupational Exposure to Formaldehyde

The administrative stay of 29 CFR 1910.1048 (m)(1)(i) through (m)(4) (ii) will be effective until 11/6/91. These paragraphs of the 12/4/87 final rule were previously stayed on 12/13/88, and the stay was extended on 8/29/89, 6/13/90, 12/17/90, 3/12/91, and 6/12/91. On 7/15/ 91, OSHA published a proposal to resolve several remaining issues on formaldehyde, including those raised by the stayed paragraphs (56 FR 32302). The public was given until 8/14/91 to comment on the proposal. Consequently the stay is being extended for an additional 90 days. While this stay is in effect, affected employers must continue to comply with the provisions of OSHA''s Hazard Communication Standard. Contact: James Foster, (202)523-8151.
