DOL Announces Delay in Effective Date of Exposure to Beryllium Rule

 
Wednesday, March 22, 2017
 
The U.S. Department of Labor has announced a delay in the effective date of the rule titled “Occupational Exposure to Beryllium,” from March 21, 2017 to May 20, 2017.

The delay will allow the Occupational Safety and Health Administration an opportunity for further review and consideration of the rule, in keeping with a January 20, 2017, White House memorandum, titled “Regulatory Freeze Pending Review.”

OSHA published the final rule on January 9, 2017, and previously announced the effective date would be postponed to March 21, 2017. On March 1, 2017, OSHA sought comments on a further extension to May 20, 2017.

OSHA has now determined that the further delay is appropriate for the purpose of additional review into questions of law and policy.

The extension of the effective date will not affect the compliance dates of the beryllium rule.
