Need for Correction As published, the final regulations contain errors that may prove to be misleading and ambiguous references to illustrative figures in incorporated-byreference ANSI standards. Specifically, the incorporation-by-reference provisions in 29 CFR 1910.6(e)(66) and (e)(67) and 1926.6(h)(28)–(h)(30) misidentify the vendors and locations where the public can purchase the updated ANSI Z535 standards. In addition, the references in 29 CFR 1926.200(b) and (c), ‘‘Accident prevention signs and tags,’’ to figures in ANSI Z535.2–2011 are ambiguous. These references need to be clarified because the figures they denote illustrate sign specifications that employers have the option of following.

ACTION: Final rule; confirmation of effective date. AGENCY: On June 13, 2013, OSHA published in the Federal Register (78 FR 35559) a direct final rule that revised its signage standards for general industry and construction by updating the references to national consensus standards approved by the American National Standards Institute, a clearinghouse that verifies that the criteria for approval of consensus standards have been met. OSHA stated in that Federal Register notice that it would withdraw the companion proposed rule and confirm the effective date of the direct final rule if the Agency received no significant adverse comments on the direct final rule. Since OSHA received no such significant adverse comments, the Agency now confirms that the direct final rule became effective as a final rule on September 11, 2013. DATES: The direct final rule published on June 13, 2013 (78 FR 35559), became effective as a final rule on September 11, 2013. For the purposes of judicial review, OSHA considers November 6, 2013, the date of issuance of the final rule.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Copies of this Federal Register notice: Electronic copies of this Federal Register notice are available at http:// www.regulations.gov. This Federal Register notice, as well as news releases and other relevant information, also are available at OSHA’s Web page at http://www.osha.gov. Confirmation of the effective date: On June 13, 2013, OSHA published a direct final rule (DFR) in the Federal Register that revised its signage standards for general industry at 29 CFR 1910.97, 1910.145, and 1910.261, and construction at 29 CFR 1926.200, by updating references to the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) signage protection standards (see 78 FR 35559). Specifically, the DFR updated the signage references in OSHA’s existing general industry and construction standards, including references to ANSI Z53.1–1967 (Safety Color Code for Marking Physical Hazards), Z35.1–1968 (Specifications for Accident Prevention Signs), and Z35.2– 1968 (Specifications for Accident Prevention Tags), by adding references to the latest ANSI standards, including ANSI Z535.1–2006 (R2011) (Safety Colors), Z535.2–2011 (Environmental and Facility Safety Signs), and Z535.5– 2011 (Safety Tags and Barricade Tapes (for Temporary Hazards)). Thus, the DFR allowed employers to follow either the updated ANSI standards or the older ANSI signage standards already referenced in OSHA’s existing general industry and construction standards. The DFR also incorporated by reference Part VI of the Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices, 1988 Edition, Revision 3, into 29 CFR 1926.6, E:\FR\FM\06NOR1.SGM 06NOR1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    The final regulations that are the subject of these corrections 
superseded their predecessor regulations in 29 CFR parts 1910 and 1926 
on the effective date, and affect employers required to use accident 
prevention signs and tags under the specified standards.

Need for Correction

    As published, the final regulations contain errors that may prove 
to be misleading and ambiguous references to illustrative figures in 
incorporated-by-reference ANSI standards. Specifically, the 
incorporation-by-reference provisions in 29 CFR 1910.6(e)(66) and 
(e)(67) and 1926.6(h)(28)-(h)(30) misidentify the vendors and locations 
where the public can purchase the updated ANSI Z535 standards. In 
addition, the references in 29 CFR 1926.200(b) and (c), ``Accident 
prevention signs and tags,'' to figures in ANSI Z535.2-2011 are 
ambiguous. These references need to be clarified because the figures 
they denote illustrate sign specifications that employers have the 
option of following.
