Odometer Disclosure Requirements
Document Number: 2016-06665
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2016-03-25
Agency: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
This notice is being issued pursuant to the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act of 2012 requiring NHTSA to prescribe regulations permitting States to adopt schemes for electronic odometer disclosure statements. To permit States to allow electronic odometer disclosures, NHTSA is proposing to amend the existing requirements to clarify that most of those requirements apply regardless of the technology used for the disclosure. NHTSA is further proposing to add a new section containing specific additional requirements that would apply only to electronic disclosures to ensure the secure creation and maintenance of the electronic records. Through this proposal NHTSA seeks to allow odometer disclosures in an electronic medium while maintaining and protecting the existing system(s) that ensure accurate odometer disclosures and aid law enforcement in prosecuting odometer fraud. NHTSA is also proposing to extend an existing exemption for vehicles more than 10 years old to 25 years.

Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Helicopters Deutschland GmbH Helicopters
Document Number: 2016-06530
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2016-03-25
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for Airbus Helicopters Deutschland GmbH (Airbus Helicopters) Model BO-105LS A-3 helicopters. This proposed AD would require inspecting the helicopter records to determine if there is a life limit for the tension-torsion (TT) straps installed in the helicopter lifting system, establishing a life limit if there is not one, and replacing each TT strap that has met or exceeded its life limit. This proposed AD is prompted by an error in the Airworthiness Limitations section of the Model BO-105LS A-3 maintenance manual. The proposed actions are intended to prevent failure of a TT strap and subsequent loss of control of a helicopter.

Type: Rule
Date: 2016-03-25
Agency: Department of Labor, Occupational Safety and Health Administration
On March 13, 2015, OSHA published in the Federal Register a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to revise its eye and face protection standards for general industry, shipyard employment, marine terminals, longshoring, and construction by updating the references to national consensus standards approved by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). OSHA received no significant objections from commenters and therefore is adopting the amendments as proposed. This final rule updates the references in OSHA's eye and face standards to reflect the most recent edition of the ANSI/International Safety Equipment Association (ISEA) eye and face protection standard. It removes the oldest-referenced edition of the same ANSI standard. It also amends other provisions of the construction eye and face protection standard to bring them into alignment with OSHA's general industry and maritime standards.

Occupational Exposure to Respirable Crystalline Silica
Document Number: 2016-04800
Type: Rule
Date: 2016-03-25
Agency: Department of Labor, Occupational Safety and Health Administration
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is amending its existing standards for occupational exposure to respirable crystalline silica. OSHA has determined that employees exposed to respirable crystalline silica at the previous permissible exposure limits face a significant risk of material impairment to their health. The evidence in the record for this rulemaking indicates that workers exposed to respirable crystalline silica are at increased risk of developing silicosis and other non-malignant respiratory diseases, lung cancer, and kidney disease. This final rule establishes a new permissible exposure limit of 50 micrograms of respirable crystalline silica per cubic meter of air (50 [mu]g/m\3\) as an 8-hour time- weighted average in all industries covered by the rule. It also includes other provisions to protect employees, such as requirements for exposure assessment, methods for controlling exposure, respiratory protection, medical surveillance, hazard communication, and recordkeeping. OSHA is issuing two separate standardsone for general industry and maritime, and the other for constructionin order to tailor requirements to the circumstances found in these sectors.
