SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On August 11, 2009, OSHA published a direct-
final rule to update the incorporated references in its Acetylene 
Standard for general industry at 29 CFR 1910.102 (74 FR 40442). OSHA 
also published a companion proposed rule along with the direct-final 
rule (74 FR 40450). In the direct-final rule, OSHA stated that it would 
withdraw the companion proposed rule and confirm the effective date of 
the direct-final rule if it received no significant adverse comments on 
the direct final rule by September 10, 2009. OSHA received eight 
comments on the direct-final rule by that date, which it determined 
were not significant adverse comments. OSHA subsequently published a 
notice announcing this determination and confirming the effective date 
of the direct-final rule as November 9, 2009 (74 FR 57883). 
Accordingly, OSHA is not proceeding with the proposed rule and is 
withdrawing it from the rulemaking process.
