    Withdrawal of the proposal: On November 20, 2013, OSHA published a 
companion proposed rule (NPRM) along with the direct final rule (DFR) 
(see 78 FR 69543) revising the record requirements contained in the 
Mechanical Power Presses Standard. In the DFR, OSHA stated that it 
would withdraw the companion NPRM and confirm the effective date of the 
final rule if it received no significant adverse comments to the DFR by 
the close of the comment period, December 20, 2013. OSHA received two 
comments on the DFR by that date, neither of which were significant 
adverse comments (see ID: OSHA-2013-0010-0003 and OSHA-2013-0010-0004 
in the docket for this rulemaking). Accordingly, OSHA is withdrawing 
the proposed rule. In addition, OSHA is publishing a separate Federal 
Register notice confirming the effective date of the final rule.
