In a recent regulatory update, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) announced that it would publish a proposed regulation on a nationwide Injury and Illness Prevention Program (IIPP), which has been dubbed I2P2, by the end of 2013. OSHA has been working on this rule for years now.

This month the agency said it would commence the rule's small business review under the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act (SBREFA) of 1996.

The regulatory agenda also says that a proposed Combustible Dust rule will begin its SBREFA review in March.
