In the October 29th edition of the Federal Register, the United States Department of Labor’s (USDOL) Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) issued a notice announcing that a public meeting will be held in Washington, DC on November 12th from 1 PM to 4 PM Eastern Time (EST) addressing the planned agenda and issues to be discussed as well as any proposed response to such issues by the United States at the United Nations Globally Harmonized System for the Classification and Labeling of Hazardous Chemicals (i.e., GHS) meeting to be held in December in Geneva, Switzerland.
The notice also makes mention of a similar preparatory meeting to be chaired by the United States Department of Transportation’s (USDOT) Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) that same morning from 9 AM to 12 PM at the same location; PHMSA’s notice of announcement for their meeting can therefore be anticipated to appear in the Federal Register in the immediate future.
