OSHA is initiating a regulatory review of its existing safety and health standards in response to the President’s Executive Order 13563, ‘‘Improving Regulations and Regulatory Review’’ (76 FR 38210). The agency conducted similar regulatory reviews of its existing standards previously as ‘‘standards improvement projects."

OSHA is issuing this request for information to initiate another of these regulatory reviews, and naming this review the Standards Improvement Project—Phase IV (SIP–IV). The purpose of SIP–IV is to improve and streamline OSHA standards by removing or revising requirements that are confusing or outdated, or that duplicate, or are inconsistent with, other standards.
