VII. Environmental Impact Assessment

OSHA has reviewed the final rule in accordance with the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4321 3et seq.), the regulations of the Council on Environmental Quality (40 U.S.C. part 1500), and the Department of Labor's NEPA procedures (29 CFR part 11). As noted earlier in this preamble, the final rule imposes the same requirements on employers as the standards it replaces; consequently, the final rule has no additional impact on the environment, including no impact on the release of materials that contaminate natural resources or the environment, beyond the impact imposed by OSHA's former standards regulating dipping and coating operations.
