II. The Parties' Recommendation

Following the remand, parties to the litigation developed recommendations for revisions to the standard that they believed represented a reasonable resolution of all outstanding issues. Their recommendation, presented to OSHA on June 27, 1990, proposed to (1) lower the PEL to 0.75 ppm TWA; (2) include in the standard certain provisions for MRP benefits; and (3) modify the standard's hazard communication provisions by revising labeling requirements for materials capable of releasing small amounts of formaldehyde and providing annual training in formaldehyde hazards for all employees exposed at or above 0.1 ppm (Ex. 278).

OSHA gave these recommendations careful consideration in developing the proposed amendments. On July 15, 1991, the Agency issued a proposed rule in response to the Court's remand (56 FR 32302). The proposal incorporated the substance of the recommendations of the parties to the litigation and requested public comment.
