DOL/OWCP RIN: 1240-AA09 Publication ID: Spring 2014 
Title: ●Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act: Transmission of Documents and Information 
Abstract: The current regulations implementing the Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act and its extensions unnecessarily restrict the methods by which injured workers, their survivors, employers, insurance carriers, and the Office of Workers' Compensation Programs may communicate. They also do not address electronic communication methods (e.g., facsimile, e-mail, etc.). Establishing parameters for electronic communications has become increasingly important as more private individuals and businesses have adopted electronic means as their preferred method of communication. The proposed rule will add electronic communication options that are consistent with the statute and compatible with the Department's electronic infrastructure, and broaden the acceptable methods of non-electronic communications.
