proposed rule to revise the Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) to 
conform with the United Nations' (UN) Globally Harmonized System of

published a correction notice for the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking 
(NPRM) on November 5, 2009 (74 FR 57278). The deadline for submitting 
written comments and hearing requests was December 29, 2009. On

hold informal public hearings in Washington, DC; Pittsburgh, PA; and

hearings was January 18, 2010, and the deadline for requesting more

    OSHA received numerous requests to appear at the Washington, DC,

timely notices for the Los Angeles hearing have been given the 
opportunity to appear at either the Washington, DC, or Pittsburgh 
locations.

hearings, please see the notice of hearing published at 74 FR 68756 and
