Withdrawal of the proposal: On November 20, 2013, OSHA published a companion proposed rule (NPRM) along with the direct final rule (DFR) (see 78 FR 69543) revising the record requirements contained in the Mechanical Power Presses Standard. In the DFR, OSHA stated that it would withdraw the companion NPRM and confirm the effective date of the final rule if it received no significant adverse comments to the DFR by the close of the comment period, December 20, 2013. OSHA received two comments on the DFR by that date, neither of which were significant adverse comments (see ID: OSHA-2013-0010-0003 and OSHA-2013-0010-0004 in the docket for this rulemaking). Accordingly, OSHA is withdrawing the proposed rule. In addition, OSHA is publishing a separate Federal Register notice confirming the effective date of the final rule.
