OSHA Submits Final GHS Rule To OMB

On October 25, OSHA took the last step to officially adopt the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling (GHS) into the U.S.'s Hazard Communication Standard. On that day, OSHA submitted the final rule to The Office of Management and Budget (OMB). OMB then has up to 90 days to review and finalize the rule before it is published in the Federal Register, and becomes final.

Based on this schedule, the final rule is expected to be published in January 2012.
