SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On August 7, 2015, OSHA published a proposed

general industry, regulating occupational exposure to beryllium and 
beryllium compounds. OSHA accepted comments concerning the proposed 
rule during the comment period, which ended on November 5, 2015. 
Commenters shared information and suggestions on a variety of topics, 
and the Non-Ferrous Founders' Society also requested that OSHA schedule 
an informal public hearing on the proposed rule.
    On December 30, 2015, OSHA published a notice of informal hearing 
and invited interested persons in the rulemaking to participate by 
providing oral testimony and documentary evidence at the informal 
hearing. The Agency requested those interested persons submit a notice 
of intent to appear and all documentary evidence by January, 29, 2016.

to March 21, 2016 at 2:00pm. If necessary, the hearing will continue
