Federal Register Notice, CBDPP Final Rule

December 8, 1999

Federal Register Notice, Final rule for 10 CFR part 850, CBDPP

The Department of Energy (DOE)  published a final rule to establish a chronic beryllium disease prevention program (CBDPP) to reduce the number of workers currently exposed to beryllium in the course of their work at DOE facilities managed by DOE or its contractors, minimize the levels of, and potential for, exposure to beryllium, and establish medical surveillance requirements to ensure early detection of the disease. This program improves and codifies provisions of a temporary CBDPP established by DOE directive in 1997.
