AGENCY:

ACTION:

Final rule; removal.

SUMMARY:

Under the Congressional Review Act, Congress has passed, and the President has signed, Public Law 107-5, a resolution of disapproval of OSHA's final Ergonomics Program Standard. OSHA published the ergonomics program standard on November 14, 2000 (65 FR 68262), and the standard became effective on January 16, 2001. Because Public Law 107-5 invalidates the standard, OSHA is hereby removing it from the Code of Federal Regulations.

DATES:

This action is effective April 23, 2001.

Accordingly, OSHA is hereby removing the standard from the Code of Federal Regulations.
