RIN: 1290-AA24

Publication ID: Fall 2010 

Title: Redesignation of Title 20 CFR, Chapter VI 

Abstract: The current title of Chapter VI, title 20 CFR, is "Employment Standards Administration, Department of Labor." Because the Secretary of Labor dissolved the Employment Standards Administration (ESA) into its constituent components on November 8, 2009, Chapter VI must be redesignated. The rules contained in Chapter VI implement the Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act, as extended (33 U.S.C. 901 to 951), and the Black Lung Benefits Act, 30 U.S.C. 901 to 944. The Secretary has delegated authority for administering both programs to the Director, Office of Workers' Compensation Programs. 74 FR 58834 (Nov. 13, 2009). Accordingly, this final rule redesignates title 20 CFR, Chapter VI, as "Office of Workers' Compensation Program, Department of Labor."
