Semiannual Agenda of Regulations

AGENCY: Office of the Secretary, Labor.

ACTION: Semiannual regulatory agenda.

_______________________________________________________________________

SUMMARY: The Internet has become the means for disseminating the
entirety of the Department of Labor's semiannual regulatory agenda.
However, the Regulatory Flexibility Act requires publication of a
regulatory flexibility agenda in the Federal Register. This Federal
Register Notice contains the regulatory flexibility agenda. In
addition, the Department's Regulatory Plan, a subset of the
Department's regulatory agenda, is being published in the Federal
Register. The Regulatory Plan contains a statement of the Department's
regulatory priorities and the regulatory actions the Department wants
to highlight as its most important and significant.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Kathleen Franks, Director, Office of
Regulatory Policy, Office of the Assistant Secretary for Policy, U.S.
Department of Labor, 200 Constitution Avenue NW., Room S-2312,
Washington, DC 20210; (202) 693-5959.

Note: Information pertaining to a specific regulation can be obtained
from the agency contact listed for that particular regulation.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Executive Order 12866 requires the
semiannual publication of an agenda of regulations that contains a
listing of all the regulations the Department of Labor expects to have
under active consideration for promulgation, proposal, or review during
the coming one-year period. The entirety of the Department's semiannual
agenda is available online at www.reginfo.gov.

    The Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 602) requires DOL to
publish in the Federal Register a regulatory flexibility agenda.
The Department's Regulatory Flexibility Agenda published with this
notice, includes only those rules on its semiannual agenda that are
likely to have a significant economic impact on a substantial
number of small entities; and those rules identified for periodic
review in keeping with the requirements of section 610 of the
Regulatory Flexibility Act. Thus, the regulatory flexibility agenda
is a subset of the Department's semiannual regulatory agenda.

    The next 12-month review list for the Department of Labor is
provided below, and public comment is invited on the listing. A
brief description of each rule, the legal basis for the rule, and
the agency contact are provided with each agenda item.

Occupational Safety and Health Administration

     Methylene Chloride (RIN 1218-AC23)

    Bloodborne Pathogens (RIN 1218-AC34)

Employee Benefits Security Administration

    Plan Assets-Participant Contributions Regulations (RIN 1210-
AB11)

    In addition, the Department's Regulatory Plan, also a subset of
the Department's regulatory agenda, is being published in the
Federal Register. The Regulatory Plan contains a statement of the
Department's regulatory priorities and the regulatory actions the
Department wants to highlight as its most important and
significant.

    All interested members of the public are invited and encouraged
to let departmental officials know how our regulatory efforts can
be improved, and are invited to participate in and comment on the
review or development of the regulations listed on the agenda.

392. PROPOSAL TO RESCIND THE FORM T-1; REQUIRE SUBSIDIARY ORGANIZATION
REPORTING; REVISE INTERPRETATION REGARDING LMRDA COVERAGE OF PUBLIC
SECTOR INTERMEDIATE UNIONS

Legal Authority: 29 USC 438

Abstract: On October 2, 2008, the Department published a final rule
establishing a Form T-1, Trust Annual Report, which certain labor
organizations must file to disclose financial information regarding
trusts in which they are interested pursuant to the Labor-Management
Reporting and Disclosure Act (LMRDA). This rulemaking would propose to
rescind the Form T-1. It would instead propose that filers of Form LM-
2, Labor Organization Annual Report, report on their wholly owned,
wholly controlled and wholly financed organizations ("subsidiary
organizations") on their Form LM-2 report. Additionally, the
rulemaking would propose to change an interpretation of the LMRDA
regarding intermediate bodies. The proposed revised interpretation
would state that intermediate bodies are covered only if they are
themselves composed, in whole or part, of private sector affiliates.

396. AMENDMENT OF REGULATION RELATING TO DEFINITION OF PLAN ASSETS--

Legal Authority: 29 USC 1135

Abstract: This rulemaking will amend the regulation that defines when
participant moneys paid to or withheld by an employer for contribution
to an employee benefit plan constitute "plan assets" for purposes of
title I of ERISA and the related prohibited transaction provisions of
the Internal Revenue Code. The regulation contains an amendment to the
current regulation that will establish a safe harbor period of a
specified number of business days during which certain moneys that a
participant pays to, or has withheld by, an employer for contribution
to a plan would not constitute "plan assets."

399. OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE TO BERYLLIUM

Legal Authority: 29 USC 655(b); 29 USC 657

Abstract: In 1999 and 2001, OSHA was petitioned to issue an emergency
temporary standard by the Paper Allied-Industrial, Chemical, and Energy
Workers Union, Public Citizen Health Research Group, and others. The
Agency denied the petitions but stated its intent to begin data
gathering to collect needed information on beryllium's toxicity, risks,
and patterns of usage.
On November 26, 2002, OSHA published a Request for Information (RFI)
(67 FR 70707) to solicit information pertinent to occupational exposure
to beryllium including: Current exposures to beryllium; the
relationship between exposure to beryllium and the development of
adverse health effects; exposure assessment and monitoring methods;
exposure control methods; and medical surveillance. In addition, the
Agency conducted field surveys of selected work sites to assess current
exposures and control methods being used to reduce employee exposures
to beryllium. OSHA convened a Small Business Advocacy Review Panel
under the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act (SBREFA)
and completed the SBREFA Report in January 2008.

401. OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE TO DIACETYL AND FOOD FLAVORINGS CONTAINING
DIACETYL

Legal Authority: 29 USC 655(b); 29 USC 657

Abstract: On July 26, 2006, the United Food and Commercial Workers
International Union (UFCW) and the International Brotherhood of
Teamsters (IBT) petitioned DOL for an Emergency Temporary Standard
(ETS) for all employees exposed to diacetyl, a major component in
artificial butter flavoring. Diacetyl and a number of other volatile
organic compounds are used to manufacture artificial butter food
flavorings. These food flavorings are used by various food
manufacturers in a multitude of food products including microwave
popcorn, certain bakery goods, and some snack foods. OSHA denied the
petition on September 25, 2007, but has initiated 6(b) rulemaking.
Evidence from NIOSH and other sources indicated that employee exposure
to diacetyl and food flavorings containing diacetyl is associated with
bronchiolitis obliterans, a debilitating and potentially fatal disease
of the small airways in the lung. Severe obstructive airway disease has
been observed in the microwave popcorn industry and in food flavoring
manufacturing plants. Experimental evidence has shown that inhalation
exposure to artificial butter flavoring vapors and diacetyl damaged
tissue lining, the nose, and airways of rats and mice. OSHA published
an Advanced Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPRM) on January 21, 2009,
but withdrew the ANPRM on March 17, 2009, in order to facilitate timely
development of a standard. The Agency subsequently initiated review of
the draft proposed standard in accordance with the Small Business
Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act (SBREFA). The SBREFA Panel Report
was completed on July 2, 2009.

402. BLOODBORNE PATHOGENS (610 REVIEW) (SECTION 610 REVIEW)

Legal Authority: 5 USC 533; 5 USC 610; 29 USC 655(b)

Abstract: OSHA will undertake a review of the Bloodborne Pathogen
Standard (29 CFR 1910.1030) in accordance with the requirements of the
Regulatory Flexibility Act and section 5 of Executive Order 12866. The
review will consider the continued need for rule, whether the rule
overlaps, duplicates or conflicts with other Federal, State or local
regulations, and the degree to which technology, economic conditions or
other factors may have changed since the rule was evaluated.

403. CONFINED SPACES IN CONSTRUCTION

Legal Authority: 29 USC 655(b); 40 USC 333

Abstract: In January 1993, OSHA issued a general industry rule to
protect employees who enter confined spaces (29 CFR 1910.146). This
standard does not apply to the construction industry because of
differences in the nature of the worksite in the construction industry.
In discussions with the United Steel Workers of America on a settlement
agreement for the general industry standard, OSHA agreed to issue a
proposed rule to extend confined-space protection to construction
workers appropriate to their work environment.

404. ELECTRIC POWER TRANSMISSION AND DISTRIBUTION; ELECTRICAL PROTECTIVE
EQUIPMENT

Legal Authority: 29 USC 655(b); 40 USC 333

Abstract: Electrical hazards are a major cause of occupational death in
the United States. The annual fatality rate for power line workers is
about 50 deaths per 100,000 employees. The construction industry
standard addressing the safety of these workers during the construction
of electric power transmission and distribution lines is over 35 years
old. OSHA has developed a revision of this standard that will prevent
many of these fatalities, add flexibility to the standard, and update
and streamline the standard. OSHA also intends to amend the
corresponding standard for general industry so that requirements for
work performed during the maintenance of electric power transmission
and distribution installations are the same as those for similar work
in construction. In addition, OSHA will be revising a few miscellaneous
general industry requirements primarily affecting electric transmission
and distribution work, including provisions on electrical protective
equipment and foot protection. This rulemaking also addresses fall
protection in aerial lifts for work on power generation, transmission,
and distribution installations. OSHA published an NPRM on June 15,
2005. A public hearing was held March 6 to 14, 2006. OSHA reopened the
record to gather additional information on minimum approach distances
for specific range of voltages. The record was reopened a second time
to allow more time for comment and to gather information on minimum
approach distances for all voltages and on the newly revised Institute
of Electrical and Electronics Engineers consensus standard.
