Office of Management and Budget Control Numbers Under the Paperwork Reduction Act
AGENCY: Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
ACTION: Final rule.
SUMMARY: The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is announcing that the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has extended its approval for a number of information collection requirements in OSHA's health standards. OSHA sought approval under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, and, as required by that Act, is announcing the approval numbers and expiration dates for those requirements. OSHA is also correcting the approval number for one collection and correcting the citation number for two collections.
DATES: This rule is effective April 8, 1998.
FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Adrian Corsey, Directorate of Health Standards Programs, Occupational Safety and Health Administration, U.S. Department of Labor, Room N3718, 200 Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20210, telephone (202) 219-7075 extension 105.
SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The following chart lists the collections of information requirements in the health standards that have been approved by OMB recently.
|OMB control No.||Standard citation||Standard||Expiration date|
|1218-0065||1910.1020||Access to Employee Exposure and Medical Records||11/30/2000|
|1218-0092||1910.1025||Lead in General Industry||1/31/2001|
|1218-0133||1910.1001||Asbestos in General Industry||1/31/2001|
|1218-0134||1926.1101||Asbestos in Construction||12/31/2000|
|1218-0189||1926.62||Lead in Construction||11/30/2000|
|1218-0195||1915.1001||Asbestos in Shipyards||12/31/2000|
In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501-3520), OSHA provided a period of public comment on all of the collections and submitted a request for OMB approval. OMB renewed its approval for the collections of information under their existing approval number as shown above. OSHA is also correcting two errors in its tables at Sec. 1910.8 which lists OMB approval numbers for collections of information in the general industry and an error in the table in Sec. 1926.5 which lists OMB approval numbers for collections of information in the construction industry. Specifically, Sec. 1910.20 and Sec. 1910.96 should be listed as Sec. 1910.1020 and Sec. 1910.1096, respectively, and the control number assigned to the collection at Sec. 1926.1101 is 1218-0134. Under 5 CFR 1320.5(b), an Agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to a collection of information, unless the collection display's a valid OMB control number.
