Priority: Other Significant. Major status under 5 USC 801 is undetermined.

Legal Authority: 29 USC 655(b)

CFR Citation: 29 CFR 1910 subpart S

Legal Deadline: None

Abstract: The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is planning to revise and update its 29 CFR 1910 Subpart S-Electrical Standard. OSHA will rely heavily in that process on the 2000 Edition of the National Fire Protection Association's (NFPA's) 70 E standard for Electrical Safety Requirements for Employee Workplaces. This revision will provide the first update of Subpart S-Electrical since the standard was originally published in 1981. It will thus allow the latest technological developments to be considered; several of these state-of-the-art safety developments will be addressed by OSHA for the first time. The update of Subpart S-Electrical will also at a future time permit the completion of standards covering safety-related maintenance requirements and safety requirements for special equipment. OSHA intends to complete this project in several stages. The first stage consists of changes OSHA believes to be noncontroversial, and the agency plans to publish it as a direct final rule.
