SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Background

    This notice corrects certain minor errors in the revisions to 
OSHA's Hazard Communication Standard, published at 77 FR 17574. The 
majority of these corrections change references in other OSHA standards 
made to ``material safety data sheet'' or ``MSDS'' to ``safety data 
sheet'' or ``SDS,'' which OSHA inadvertently missed in its original 
publication of the final rule. Other corrections include correcting 
values or notations in tables, and updating references to terms defined 
in the Hazard Communication Standard Final Rule, published on March 26, 
2012.

Correction of Publication

    The following corrections are made to the preamble to the final 
rule for the Hazard Communication Standard, published in the Federal 
Register on March 26, 2012 (77 FR 17574).
    1. In the Preamble, on p. 17686, in the third column, the seventh 
paragraph Estimated Total Burden Hours: 11.3 million hours is revised 
to read Estimated Total Burden Hours: 10,689,248 hours.
    2. In the Preamble, on p. 17755, in the third column, in the first 
paragraph the name ``David Levine'' is corrected to read ``Daniel 
Levine''.
    3. In the Preamble, on p. 17712, Table XIII-1, the ``>20%'' value 
for Specific target organ toxicity Category 3 is corrected to read 
``>=20%'' (both columns).
    4. In the Preamble, on p. 17751, Table XIII-5, Health Effects 
Column for Standard No. 1910.1051. ``Cancer; eye and respiratory tract 
irritation; center nervous system effects; and flammability'' is 
corrected to read

[[Page 9312]]

``Cancer; eye and respiratory tract irritation; central nervous system 
effects; and flammability.''

II. Exemption From Notice-and-Comment Procedures

    Section 4 of the Administrative Procedure Act, 5 U.S.C. 
553(b)(3)(B), provides that, when an Agency for good cause finds that 
notice and public procedure are impracticable, unnecessary or contrary 
to the public interest, the Agency may issue a final rule without 
providing notice and an opportunity for public comment. This rulemaking 
only corrects errors of a minor, mainly typographical nature and 
therefore does not affect or change any existing rights or obligations. 
OSHA has determined that there is good cause, pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 
553(b)(3)(B), Section 6(b) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 
1970 (29 U.S.C. 655(b)), and 29 CFR 1911.5, for making this 
correctional amendment final without prior proposal and opportunity for 
comment because the rulemaking does not affect or change any existing 
rights or obligations, and no stakeholder is likely to object to them. 
For the same reasons, the Agency finds good cause under 5 U.S.C. 
553(d)(3) to make the amendment effective upon publication.

Part D: Table Relating Approximate Equivalences Among IARC, NTP RoC, 
and GHS Carcinogenicity Classifications

    The following table may be used to perform hazard 
classifications for carcinogenicity under the HCS (Sec.  1910.1200). 
It relates the approximated GHS hazard categories for 
carcinogenicity to the classifications provided by IARC and NTP, as 
described in Parts B and C of this Appendix.

                                                    Anticipated (See
                                                    Note 1).
Group 2B......................  Category 2.......  Reasonably
                                                    Anticipated (See

------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Note 1:
    1. Limited evidence of carcinogenicity from studies in humans 
(corresponding to IARC 2A/GHS 1B);
    2. Sufficient evidence of carcinogenicity from studies in 
experimental animals (again, essentially corresponding to IARC 2A/
GHS 1B);
    3. Less than sufficient evidence of carcinogenicity in humans or 
laboratory animals; however:
    a. The agent, substance, or mixture belongs to a well-defined, 
structurally-related class of substances whose members are listed in 
a previous RoC as either ``Known'' or ``Reasonably Anticipated'' to 
be a human carcinogen, or
    b. There is convincing relevant information that the agent acts 
through mechanisms indicating it would likely cause cancer in 
humans.
