FEDERAL REGISTER CITATIONS PERTAINING TO THE REGULATION OF ASBESTOS

Federal regulations governing the production and use of asbestos and asbestos-containing materials continue to focus their attention on the adverse health and environmental effects of asbestos. To obtain an appreciation of the scope of the current regulatory status of asbestos, a compilation was made of Federal Register citations pertaining to the regulation of asbestos by CPSC, DOT, EPA, FDA, MESA, and OSHA. An abstract of each citation was prepared and filed chronologically by statutory authority within the individual agencies. The resulting document, as presented here, provides a condensed source of information relating to the development of the various standards presently enforced by the agencies as well as proposals for new or modified regulations.
