    Chapter 6A:

      Section: 34:6A-9: Rules and regulations

           The commissioner shall make and promulgate rules and regulations reasonably necessary to implement the purposes of this act. Such rules and regulations shall have the force and effect of law and shall be enforced in the manner provided in this act.

Buildings or other structures in use on the effective date of this act as a place of employment other than a place where the manufacturing of goods of any kind is carried on shall not be made to comply with the requirements of rules and regulations promulgated hereunder substantially affecting such building or other structures unless such compliance is essential to correct an unsafe or unhealthful condition which constitutes a serious and substantial threat to the health or safety of employees.

The commissioner shall before promulgation furnish a copy of proposed rules and regulations to the members of the committee for its review and recommendations. Within 90 days of the receipt of said proposed rules and regulations the committee shall provide the commissioner and the board with its written recommendations. Following receipt of the committee's recommendations or upon the expiration of 90 days, the commissioner shall furnish to every member of the board a copy of the proposed rules and regulations with or without change in his discretion and at the same time a notice of intent to promulgate proposed rules and regulations shall be published by the commissioner. This notice of intent shall state briefly the purpose of the proposed rules and regulations, shall state that a copy of the proposed rules and regulations may be obtained by any person upon written request to the department, and shall fix the date, time and place for a public hearing on the proposed rules and regulations, which date shall be not less than 21 days after the publication of the notice. All person appearing at such hearing shall be given the opportunity to be heard. Rules and regulations, as so proposed or as changed by the commissioner after such hearing, may be promulgated by the commissioner 90 days following delivery to the board to be effective on such date as the rules and regulations shall provide unless disapproved by a majority of the board and if so disapproved such rules or regulations shall not become effective. Within 30 days after the public hearing and on 30 days' notice the commissioner shall call a meeting of the board for the purpose of discussing the proposed rules and regulations. If any changes were made in the proposed rules or regulations following the public hearing, a copy of such change shall accompany such notice. At any meeting called for such purpose disapproval shall be by vote of the majority of the members of the board.
