XIII. Environmental Impact Analysis

The National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, 42 U.S.C. 4321 et. seq., requires OSHA to determine whether this regulatory action would have a significant impact on the environment. These amendments would not increase the amount of formaldehyde found in the general environment and may decrease it as some establishments switch to low-emitting resins. Therefore, the Agency believes that these provisions would not have a significant impact on the environment. No comments made at the public hearing or submitted to the record contradict this conclusion.
