Title: Defense Base Act Waivers 
Abstract: The Defense Base Act (DBA), 42 U.S.C. section 1651 et seq., provides workersí compensation benefits for civilian employees of U.S. Government contractors injured or killed while working overseas. The DBA authorizes the Secretary of Labor to waive application of the DBA in any contract, subcontract, location, or class of employees upon the recommendation of the head of any department or agency of the U.S. Government. 42 U.S.C. section 1651(e). Over the years, DOL has granted a variety of waivers without any published rules. This proposed regulation would clarify the procedures for agencies to request waivers, including who may request a waiver, the format of a waiver request, and the supporting information required. The regulation would also explain DOLís procedures for reviewing and granting a waiver, including the factors DOL considers in granting a waiver and the conditions and limitations of any waiver granted.
