Notice of a Regulatory Flexibility Act Review of Lead in 
Construction

AGENCY: Occupational Safety and Health Administration, Labor.

ACTION: Extension of comment period.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is 
conducting a review of the lead in construction standard, 29 CFR 
1926.62, under Section 610 of the Regulatory Flexibility Act and 
Section 5 of Executive Order 12866 on Regulatory Planning and Review. 
On June 6 (70 FR 32739-42), OSHA requested comments for that review, 
provided background and gave information on the issues. Requests have 
been received to extend the comment period to permit the public more 
time to gather and submit information. Accordingly, OSHA is extending 
the period.

DATES: Written comments to OSHA must be sent or postmarked by November 
7, 2005.

ADDRESSES: You may submit three copies of your written comments to the 
OSHA Docket Office, Docket No. H023, Technical Data Center, Room N-
2625, U.S. Department of Labor, 200 Constitution Avenue NW., 
Washington, DC 20210; telephone (202) 693-2350. If your written 
comments are 10 pages or fewer, you may fax them to the OSHA Docket 
Office at (202) 693-1648. You do not have to send OSHA a hard copy of 
your faxed comments. Supplemental information such as studies and 
journal articles cannot be attached. Instead, three copies of each 
study, article, or other supplemental document must be sent to the OSHA 
Docket Office at the address above. These materials must clearly 
identify the associated comments to which they will be attached in the 
docket by the following information: Name of person submitting 
comments; date of comment submission; subject of comments; and docket 
number to which comments belong.

You may submit comments electronically at either of the following:
     Federal eRulemaking Portal: http://www.regulations.gov. 

Follow the instructions for submitting comments.
     OSHA Web Site: http://ecomments.osha.gov. Follow the 
instructions for submitting comments on OSHA's Web page.

Please note that you may not attach materials such as studies or 
journal articles to your electronic comments. If you wish to include 
such materials, you must submit three copies of the material to the 
OSHA Docket Office at the above address. When submitting such material 
to the OSHA Docket Office, you must clearly identify your electronic 
comments by name, date, subject, and docket number so that the Docket 
Office can attach the materials to your electronic comments.
    Note that security-related problems may result in significant 
delays in receiving comments and other materials by regular mail. 
Telephone the OSHA Docket Office at (202) 693-2350 for information 
regarding security procedures concerning delivery of materials by 
express delivery, hand delivery, and messenger service.
    All comments and submissions will be available for inspection and 
copying in the OSHA Docket Office at the address above. Most comments 
and submissions will be posted on OSHA's Web page (http://www.osha.gov).
Contact the OSHA Docket Office at (202) 693-2350 for 
information about materials not available on the OSHA Web page and for 
assistance in using this Web page to locate docket submissions. Because 
comments sent to the docket or to OSHA's Web page are available for 
public inspection, the Agency cautions interested parties against 
including in these comments personal information, such as social 
security numbers and birth dates.
