    Termination of Operational Status Agreement for North Carolina State Plan

Pursuant to paragraph 8 of the Operational Status Agreement, which was entered into under section 18 of the Occupational Safety and Health Act (the Act) by the State of North Carolina and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) in 1975, OSHA hereby announces the termination, effective October 24, 1991, of that agreement and the reinstitution of limited concurrent Federal jurisdiction to the degree necessary to assure occupational safety and health protection to employees of the State of North Carolina. This reinstitution of enforcement authority will assist the State of North Carolina, which will continue to operate its own occupational safety and health program. Federal enforcement will be exercised in specifically defined areas, including safety and health complaints and referrals brought to OSHA''s attention; referrals from North Carolina Governor Martin''s "hot line;" and, as requested by the State of North Carolina, all currently pending and new discrimination complaints under section 11(c) of the Act, 29 U. S.C. 660(c), filed either with OSHA or North Carolina''s OSHA program. For information, contact James Foster (202) 523-8148.
