Office of Management and Budget Control Numbers Under the Paperwork Reduction Act

AGENCY: Occupational Safety and Health Administration, Labor.

ACTION: Final rule.



SUMMARY: The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is adding new sections to its Safety and Health Regulations for General Industry, Construction and Shipyard Employment. These new sections will be used to consolidate and display all of the control numbers assigned by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for "approved" information collection requirements. OSHA is also identifying information collection requirements found in certain of its other regulations and displaying the OMB control number at the end of each section containing a collection of information. None of the requirements are new; they have been promulgated by OSHA at various times over the past 25 years. The display of OMB control numbers is required under the implementing rules and regulations of OMB and under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995.

EFFECTIVE DATE: February 13, 1996.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ms. Anne Cyr, Office of Information and Consumer Affairs, U.S. Department of Labor, Occupational Safety and Health Administration, Room N3647; 200 Constitution Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20210 (202-219-8148, FAX 202-219-5986).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

OSHA has a number of provisions within its occupational safety and health standards that require employers to collect or prepare information. These types of provisions are broadly classified as "information collection requirements." All information collection requirements are subject to review and approval by OMB on not more than a three-year cycle. It should be noted that OSHA cannot impose a penalty on employers for violating collection of information (recordkeeping, reporting, etc.) requirements if the agency has failed to obtain OMB approval of the requirement. When OMB approves collection of information requirements, it issues a "control number" for the collection of information provision. All agencies are required to display [show to the public] the OMB control numbers so the public will know that OMB has given the agency approval to require the information [report, record, documentation, form, etc.] to be collected. In the past, OSHA has displayed the OMB control number by printing it at the end of each section or subpart in which the requirement to collect information appeared. However, to enable the public easily and readily to identify all of the collection of information requirements, OSHA is dedicating one section in part 1910 (Safety and Health Standards for General Industry), one section in part 1915 (Shipyard Employment Standards), and one section in part 1926 (Construction Safety and Health Standards) to list those requirements and show the OMB control number. As a result of this new format, the parenthetical notes and approval/control numbers now printed at the end of the individual sections or subparts can be removed. This procedure is not being used for collections of information in 29 CFR Parts 1917, 1918, 1919, and 1928 because there are only one, two, or three collection of information requirements in each of these parts and it would serve no useful purpose to dedicate a specific section for such a small number. In these CFR parts, OSHA will continue to display the OMB control number at the end of the section which contains the information collection requirement.

None of the specific requirements to collect and provide information is new. The control numbers listed in this document were assigned previously by OMB; but not necessarily published in the regulations. This document makes no substantive change to the current OMB information collection budget or to any regulatory provision.

II. Exemption From Notice and Comment Procedures

With regard to this action, OSHA has determined that it is not necessary to provide for public notice and comment under either section 4 of the Administrative Procedures Act (5 U.S.C. 553) or under section 6(b) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act (29 U.S.C. 655(b)). This action does not affect the substantive requirements or coverage of the standards themselves. Furthermore, this document does not modify or revoke existing rights or obligations, nor does it establish new ones. With this action, the Agency is only providing information. OSHA, therefore, finds that notice and public procedure are impracticable and unnecessary within the meaning of 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B). For the same reasons, OSHA also finds that, in accordance with 29 CFR 1911.5, good cause exists for dispensing with the public notice and comment procedures prescribed in section 6(b) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act.

III. Exemption From Delayed Effective Date Requirement

Under 5 U.S.C. 553, OSHA finds that there is good cause for making this document effective upon publication in the Federal Register. This display of control numbers simply provides additional information on the existing regulatory burden without increasing that burden.
