DOL/OSHA RIN: 1218-AC19 Publication ID: Fall 2010 
Title: Standards Improvement Project (SIP III) 
Abstract: OSHA is continuing its efforts to remove or revise duplicative, unnecessary, and inconsistent safety and health standards. This effort builds upon the success of the Standards Improvement Project (SIP) Phase I published on June 18, 1998 (63 FR 33450), and Phase II published on January 5, 2005 (70 FR 1111). The Agency believes that such changes can reduce compliance costs and reduce the paperwork burden associated with a number of its standards. The Agency will only consider such changes if they do not diminish employee protections. To initiate the project, OSHA published an advance notice of proposed rulemaking (ANPRM) on December 21, 2006, to solicit input from the public on rules that may be addressed in Phase III of SIP. The Agency plans to include both safety and health topics in Phase III. OSHA published a NPRM on July 2, 2010. The comment period closed on September 30, 2010. The next action for this rulemaking is to publish the final rule.
