Proposed Collection: Comment Request

ACTION: Notice.


SUMMARY: The Department of Labor, as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, conducts a preclearance consultation program to provide the general public and Federal agencies with an opportunity to comment on proposed and/or continuing collections of information in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA95) [U.S.C. 3506 (c)(2)(A)]. This program helps to ensure that requested data can be provided in the desired format, reporting burden (time and financial resources) is minimized, collection instruments are clearly understood, and the impact of collection requirements on respondents can be properly assessed. Currently the Occupational Safety and Health Administration is soliciting comments concerning the proposed extension of the information collection request for The 13 Carcinogens Standard Sec. 1910.1003. On March 7, 1996, OSHA published a final rule entitled Miscellaneous Minor and Technical Amendments; Final rule (61 FR 9229). As part of this final, the 13 separate carcinogen standards were combined into one standard entitled "13 carcinogens." This information collection request combines the following 13 collections into one package: Sec. 1910.1003 4-Nitrobiphenyl (1218-0085); Sec. 1910.1004 alpha-Naphthylamine (1218-0084); Sec. 1910.1006 Methylchloromethyl ether (1218-0086); Sec. 1910.1007 3,3'-Dichlorobenzidine (and its salts) (1218-0083); Sec. 1910.1008 bis-Chloromethyl ether (1218-0087); Sec. 1910.1009 beta-Naphthylamine (1218-0089); Sec. 1910.1010 Benzidine (1218-0082); Sec. 1910.1011 4-Aminodiphenyl (1218-0090); Sec. 1910.1012 Ethyleneimine (1218-0080); Sec. 1910-1013 beta-Propiolactone (1218-0079); Sec. 1910.1014 2-Acetylaminofluorene (1218-0088); Sec. 1910.1015 4-Dimethylaminoazobenzene (1218-0044); Sec. 1910.1016 N-Nitrosodimethylamine (1218-0081).
