  entitled Occupational Exposure to Beryllium, published in the Federal
  Register on January 9, 2017 (82 FR 2470). The current effective date is

  SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: OSHA published a final rule entitled
  Occupational Exposure to Beryllium on January 9, 2017 (82 FR 2470). On
  February 1, 2017, OSHA published a document in the Federal Register
  delaying the effective date of this rule from March 10, 2017 until
  March 21, 2017 (82 FR 8901 (February 1, 2017)). OSHA based this
  extension on the Presidential directive as expressed in the memorandum
  of January 20, 2017, from the Assistant to the President and Chief of
  Staff, entitled "Regulatory Freeze Pending Review" (82 FR 8346
  (January 24, 2017)) ("Memorandum"). The Memorandum directed the heads
  of Executive Departments and Agencies to temporarily postpone for sixty
  days from the date of the memorandum the effective dates of all
  regulations that had been published in the Federal Register but had not
  yet taken effect. The Memorandum also noted certain exceptions that do 
  not apply here. OSHA therefore delayed the effective date for the rule
  entitled "Occupational Exposure to Beryllium" to March 21, 2017.
      The Memorandum also directed agencies to consider further delaying
  the effective date for regulations beyond that 60-day period. After
  further review, OSHA has preliminarily determined that it is
  appropriate to further delay the effective date of this rule, for the
  purpose of further reviewing questions of fact, law, and policy raised
  therein. Therefore, in accordance with the Memorandum, OSHA proposes to
  further delay the effective date for the rule entitled "Occupational
  Exposure to Beryllium" to May 20, 2017. The proposed extension of the
  effective date will not affect the compliance dates of the beryllium
  rule.
      OSHA seeks comment by March 13, 2017 on its proposal to extend the
  effective date by 60 days to May 20, 2017.

      Signed at Washington, DC, on February 24, 2017.
  Dorothy Dougherty,
  Deputy Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health.
