SUMMARY: On May 7, 2018, OSHA published a DFR amending the application of the beryllium standard to materials containing trace amounts of beryllium (83 FR 19936). OSHA also published a companion proposed rule proposing the same changes to the beryllium standard (83 FR 19989). In the DFR, OSHA stated that it would withdraw the companion proposed rule and confirm the effective date of the DFR if no significant adverse comments were submitted on the DFR by June 6, 2018. OSHA received seven comments in the record from Materion Brush, Inc., Mead Metals Inc., National Association of Manufacturers, Airborn, Inc., Edison Electric Institute, and two private citizens (Document ID OSHA– 2018–0003–0004 thru OSHA–2018– 0003–0010).

Statutory and Executive Order Reviews I. Background A. The Lead NAAQS Under the CAA, the EPA must establish NAAQS for six pollutants, including lead. Lead is generally emitted in the form of particles that are deposited in water, soil, and dust. People may be exposed to lead by inhaling it or by ingesting leadcontaminated food, water, soil, or dust. Once in the body, lead is quickly absorbed into the bloodstream and can result in a broad range of adverse health effects including damage to the central nervous system, cardiovascular function, kidneys, immune system, and red blood cells. Children are particularly vulnerable to lead exposure, in part because they are more likely to ingest lead and in part because their still-developing bodies are more sensitive to the effects of lead. The harmful effects to children’s developing nervous systems (including their brains) arising from lead exposure may include IQ 1 loss, poor academic achievement, long-term learning disabilities, and an increased risk of delinquent behavior. The EPA first established a lead standard in 1978 at 1.5 micrograms per meter cubed (mg/m3) as a quarterly average.2 Based on new health and scientific data, the EPA revised the federal lead standard to 0.15 mg/m3 and revised the averaging time for the standard on October 15, 2008.3 A violation of the standard occurs when ambient lead concentrations exceed 0.15 1 IQ (intelligence quotient) is a score created by dividing a person’s mental age score, obtained by administering an intelligence test, by the person’s chronological age, both expressed in terms of years and months. ‘‘Glossary of Important Assessment and Measurement Terms,’’ Philadelphia, PA: National Council on Measurement in Education. 2016. 2 See 43 FR 46246 (October 5, 1978). 3 See 73 FR 66964 (November 12, 2008) (‘‘lead NAAQS rule’’).

containing trace amounts of beryllium (83 FR 19936). OSHA also 
published a companion proposed rule proposing the same changes to the

withdraw the companion proposed rule and confirm the effective date of 
the DFR if no significant adverse comments were submitted on the DFR by

contained comments that were either supportive of the DFR or were 
considered not to be significant adverse comments (Document IDs OSHA-

also contained comments that were outside the scope of the DFR and OSHA 
is not considering portions of those submissions that are outside the 
scope (OSHA-2018-0003-0004 thru OSHA-2018-0003-0006). Accordingly, OSHA 
is not proceeding with the proposed rule and is withdrawing it from the
