Notice to Readers Notice of Proposed Rulemaking for Respirator Certification Regulations

On May 24, 1994, CDC's National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking in the Federal Register * to modify the certification regulations for respirators used in the workplace. The proposed changes would enable manufacturers to introduce improved respirators to protect workers exposed to hazardous airborne particulates including toxic dusts, mists, and fumes and airborne infectious contaminants such as Mycobacterium tuberculosis. A public meeting to discuss the proposed changes is scheduled for June 23-24, 1994, in Washington, D.C. Additional information or a copy of the proposed rule is available from the Chief, Certification and Quality Assurance Branch, Division of Safety Research, NIOSH, CDC, telephone (304) 284-5713.
