CFR 105 - Welding, Cutting and Brazing: Final Rule

PDF • 62.05 KB - December 22, 2022

On 11 April 1990, Federal OSHA published a new final rule (Federal Register) to redesign and reorganize the existing standard on Welding, Cutting and Brazing at 29 CFR 1910.252 (General Requirements). The new rule does not change the substance of the existing rule, nor does it affect the standard's present scope and application. The new rule is aimed solely at reorganizing and clarifying the format of 1910.252 to make easier substantive changes OSHA plans to make later this year. The revision is needed to bring the existing standard in line with the current state-of-the-art in welding technology and practices, and with the National Consensus Standards on which the original rule was based.

This new federal final rule at 29 CFR 1910.252, 1910.253 - Oxygen-fuel gas welding and cutting, 1910.254 - Arc welding and cutting, and 1910.255 - Resistance welding, has been adopted verbatim by the Commissioner of Labor with an effective date of 2 July, 1990.
