Subchapter 21. Telecommunication Safety Orders

Article 1. Telecommunications

Pursuant to the requirements of the Executive Order, the Board is specifically interested in seeking oral or written comments in the following areas:

(1) Are the regulations currently necessary, cost effective, and therefore be retained, modified or repealed;

(2) What are the current fiscal and economic impacts from the regulations;

(3) Do the regulations conflict or overlap with federal or local requirements; and,

(4) Are there less intrusive and more cost effective alternatives to the regulations.

Please note that the objective of this review is not to reduce the occupational safety and health in the workplace. Rather, the objective is to review current regulations for necessity, cost effectiveness or needed changes.

Your participation in the Sunset Review of Title 8 regulations and the Public Meeting process is both welcome and appreciated. In the interest of planning, the Board is requesting that persons wishing to address the Board regarding the above-referenced safety orders, contact the Board Secretary, at (916) 322-3640 no later than December 11, 1998. In addition, any written comments should also be submitted to the address listed above prior to that same date. This will afford staff and the Board Members an opportunity to review the material prior to the Public Meeting and formulate questions, if necessary.

If you have any specific questions regarding this matter, please contact John D. MacLeod, Executive Officer at (916) 322-3640.
