VII. State Plan States
This FEDERAL REGISTER document amends an interim final rule (section 1910.120, "Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response") in Subpart H of 29 CFR Part 1910, OSHA's general industry standards on hazardous materials. The 25 states with their own OSHA approved occupational safety and health plans must develop a comparable standard applicable to both the private and public (state and local government employees) sectors within six months of the publication date of this permanent final rule or show OSHA why there is no need for action. e.g., because an existing state standard covering this area is already "at least as effective" as the new Federal standard. These states are Alaska, Arizona, California (for state and local government employees only), Connecticut (for state and local government employees only), Hawaii, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New Mexico, New York (for state and local government employees only), North Carolina, Oregon, Puerto Rico, South Carolina, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Virgin Islands, Washington, and Wyoming. After the effective date of this final rule, until such time as a state standard is promulgated, Federal OSHA will provide interim enforcement assistance, as appropriate in these states.
