An agenda will be provided prior to the meeting. We have attached the two petitions and will post further meeting documents prior to the meeting for stakeholder discussion at this meeting.

2015 - 2016

The Standards Board conducted the rulemaking process on Sexually Transmitted Infections (STI) and did not vote to adopt a final proposal. Instead, at its February 2016, meeting the Board voted to send the proposal back to the Division and reinitiate the rulemaking process with stakeholder involvement. For the details of that rulemaking process and final decisions of Board on the STI rulemaking, visit the Standards Board website.

October 2013

Final Advisory Committee Draft. In October 2013 a draft of a possible regulation has been forwarded to the Standards Board staff for their review.

Advisory committee meeting to discuss — Bloodborne Pathogens in the Adult Film Industry

An agenda for that meeting is attached. We have also attached two files that we have developed for the purpose of facilitating discussion at this meeting. The first is a draft containing possible language that could be proposed as a new section in the California Code of Regulations, which would specifically address sexually transmitted pathogens in the adult entertainment industry. The other file, entitled Attachment A, contains modifications that could be made to that language if a proposal were to permit the use of alternative control measures for oral sex. Please understand that neither of these files represents a rulemaking proposal from Cal/OSHA. The drafts are provided so that we can focus this meeting on the issues represented in the drafts.
