SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

This notice corrects certain minor errors in the revisions to OSHA's Hazard Communication Standard, published at 77 FR 17574. The majority of these corrections change references in other OSHA standards made to “material safety data sheet” or “MSDS” to “safety data sheet” or “SDS,” which OSHA inadvertently missed in its original publication of the final rule. Other corrections include correcting values or notations in tables, and updating references to terms defined in the Hazard Communication Standard Final Rule, published on March 26, 2012.

Correction of Publication

The following corrections are made to the preamble to the final rule for the Hazard Communication Standard, published in the Federal Register on March 26, 2012 (77 FR 17574).

1. In the Preamble, on p. 17686, in the third column, the seventh paragraph Estimated Total Burden Hours: 11.3 million hours is revised to read Estimated Total Burden Hours: 10,689,248 hours.

2. In the Preamble, on p. 17755, in the third column, in the first paragraph the name “David Levine” is corrected to read “Daniel Levine”.

3. In the Preamble, on p. 17712, Table XIII-1, the “>20%” value for Specific target organ toxicity Category 3 is corrected to read “≥20%” (both columns).

4. In the Preamble, on p. 17751, Table XIII-5, Health Effects Column for Standard No. 1910.1051. “Cancer; eye and respiratory tract irritation; center nervous system effects; and flammability” is corrected to read Start Printed Page 9312“Cancer; eye and respiratory tract irritation; central nervous system effects; and flammability.”

The following table contains a summary of the codified changes made to the Hazard Communication final rule as it appeared at 77 FR 17574 and is provided for the regulated community. The changes are listed by the Federal Register page number on which they can be found, the standard being corrected, and a summary of the correction being made.

II. Exemption From Notice-and-Comment Procedures

Section 4 of the Administrative Procedure Act, 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B), provides that, when an Agency for good cause finds that notice and public procedure are impracticable, unnecessary or contrary to the public interest, the Agency may issue a final rule without providing notice and an opportunity for public comment. This rulemaking only corrects errors of a minor, mainly typographical nature and therefore does not affect or change any existing rights or obligations. OSHA has determined that there is good cause, pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B), Section 6(b) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (29 U.S.C. 655(b)), and 29 CFR 1911.5, for making this correctional amendment final without prior proposal and opportunity for comment because the rulemaking does not affect or change any existing rights or obligations, and no stakeholder is likely to object to them. For the same reasons, the Agency finds good cause under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3) to make the amendment effective upon publication.
