VI. Regulatory Impact and Regulatory Flexibility Assessment

Executive Order 12291 (46 FR 13197, February 19, 1981) requires that a regulatory analysis be prepared for any proposed regulation that meets the criteria for a "major rule"; likely to result in an annual impact on the economy of $100 million or more; have a major increase on cost or prices for consumers, individual industries, federal, state, or local government agencies, or geographic regions; or, have significant adverse effects on competition, employment, investment, productivity, innovation, or on the ability of United States-based enterprises to compete with foreign-based enterprises in domestic or export markets. In addition, the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 60, et seq.) requires an analysis of whether a regulation will have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. Finally, the Occupational Safety and Health Act requires proof of economic and technological feasibility.

Consistent with these requirements, OSHA has prepared a Regulatory Impact and Regulatory Flexibility Assessment. This regulatory assessment is a supplement to the final Regulatory Impact Analysis (RIA) currently in the docket [Ex. 206].
