Incorporation by Reference Rulemaking Comment Period Extended

Posted in on Fri, Dec 20, 2013

On November 18, 2013, the Office of the Federal Register (OFR) published an extension of the comment period for our proposal to amend our regulations governing the approval of agency requests to incorporate material by reference into the Code of Federal Regulations.  OFR has corrected the date of that extension.  Comments are due January 31, 2014.  http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2013-11-20/html/2013-27987.htm  ASSE commented on the previous stage of this rulemaking, at http://www.asse.org/en/index.php/press_releases/asse-opposes-federal-rulemaking-to-undercut-development-of-voluntary-consensus-safety-and-health-standards/
