DOL/OSHA RIN: 1218-AC43 Publication ID: Fall 2009 
Title: Occupational Exposure to Hexavalent Chromium; Final Rule Remand 
Abstract: On February 28, 2006, OSHA published a final rule for Occupational Exposure to Hexavalent Chromium (Cr(VI)) (29 CFR 1910.1026, 29 CFR 1915.1026, 29 CFR 1926.1126). Public Citizen Health Research Group (Public Citizen) and other parties petitioned for review of the standard in the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit. The court denied the petitions for review on all but one issue. The Third Circuit remanded the employee notification requirements in the standardís exposure determination provisions for further consideration. More specifically, the court directed the Agency to provide an explanation for its decision to limit employee notice requirements to circumstances in which Cr(VI) exposures exceed the permissible exposure limit (PEL) or to take other appropriate action with respect to that paragraph of the standard. After carefully reviewing the rulemaking record on this issue, OSHA has decided to revise the notification requirements, by means of this direct final rule, to require employers to notify employees of the results of all exposure determinations, regardless of exposure level.
