On June 18, 1998, federal OSHA promulgated a final rule that corrected or eliminated provisions from various standards (63 FR 33449-33469). One of the changes concerns the standard on inorganic arsenic (Ref: 29 CFR 1910.1018). Paragraphs (n)(2)(ii)(C) and (q)(2)(iii)(F), (q)(2)(iii)(G), and (q)(2)(iii)(H) are deleted to remove the requirement for sputum cytology. In addition, paragraphs (n)(3) and is revised to change the frequency of required chest x-rays for affected workers 45 years of age and older. The June 18, 1998, corrections and revisions (63 FR 33449-33469) were adopted verbatim with an effective date of October 8, 1998. 

Additional resources and information can be found on the safety and health topic page for Chemical Hazards and Toxic Substances. To determine if this rule applies, go to "Do your employees have occupational exposure to inorganic arsenic?"
