The comment period is being extended for this 60 day period.

On September 20, 1991 OSHA published a Request for Information (RFI) on indoor air quality issues. The issues on which comment is requested are organized into five broad categories: (1) Definition of and Health Effects Pertaining to Indoor Air Quality; (2) Monitoring and Exposure Assessment; (3) Controls; (4) Local Policies and Practices; and (5) Potential Content of Regulation. Specifically, information is requested on the definition of and the health effects attributable to poor indoor air quality; ventilation systems performance; protocols for assessing indoor air quality; mitigation methods; building maintenance programs; and the potential contents of a regulation should the Agency determine that such action is appropriate.
EXTENSION OF THE COMMENT PERIOD
OSHA received a written request to extend the comment period 60 days on its Request for Information (RFI) on Indoor Air Quality issues. The requestor found that the amount and complexity of information requested in the RFI could not be adequately addressed in the amount of time originally given (120 days). The Agency agreed to the request for additional time. Comments should be postmarked no later than March 20, 1992.
