DOL/OSHA RIN: 1218-AC76 Publication ID: Spring 2014 
Title: Approved State Plans for Occupational Safety and Health 
Abstract: Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) will propose a revision to each State's subpart under 29 CFR 1952 and 29 CFR 1956 to scale back the detailed descriptions of OSHA-approved State plans, including the jurisdictional explanation, purely historical data, and other unnecessary information that may be subject to change. The revised 29 CFR 1952 will retain a brief description of each State Plan and a more detailed explanation will be provided on OSHA's website. The general provisions of 29 CFR 1952 will be moved into 29 CFR 1902. Accordingly, outdated references to 29 CFR 1952 will be cleaned up throughout various OSHA regulations. The purpose of the revision to 29 CFR 1952 is to eliminate the requirement to engage in the arduous rulemaking process in order to make changes to a State plan's coverage or other descriptive language. OSHA will publish an Interim Final Rule (IFR) which will be effective immediately, but OSHA will accept public comments for 60 days and publish a finale rule after review of the comments.
