On February 9, 1994, Federal OSHA promulgated a modified final rule that included minor clarifying changes and technical amendments to the Hazard Communication standard (29 CFR 1910.1200) to help ensure full compliance with that standard. The changes and amendments are to the occupational safety and health standards for General Industry, Construction, Agriculture, Shipyard Employment and Marine Terminals. The federal modifications to Hazard Communication (29 CFR 1910.1200, 1926.59, 1928.21(a)(5), 1915.1200, and 1917.28) became effective March 11, 1994.

This final rule was adopted verbatim in North Carolina by the Commissioner of Labor with the exception of a clarifying amendment as to hazardous substance applicability at (b)(6)(ii). The effective date is August 1, 1994.Please note that in the Federal Register introductory text, no reference is made to Part 1926 in the initial listing and no reference to Part 1928 is made in the individual amendment listings, however, both sections were part of the federal amendment.

Also reference CFR 101B - Hazard Communication, CPL 02-02-079 - Inspection Procedures for the Hazard Communication Standard (HCS 2012) and CFR 101C - Hazard Communication. Additional information and resources can be found on the safety and health topic page for Hazard Communication, Ventilation and Chemical Hazards and Toxic Substances. To determine if this standard applies, go to "Do you have employees that may be exposed to any chemical under normal conditions or in foreseeable emergencies?" (Note: 29 CFR 1910.1200 is applicable to agriculture, construction, and maritime as they are identical.)
