Small Business Administration
Under the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 (SBREFA), various federal agencies must conduct a review of regulatory actions to determine their impact on small businesses prior to publishing a proposed rule. IEC is extremely involved with the SBA and actively serves as an advisor to the agency on issues of safety that impact small businesses. IEC presently has a member seated on an SBREFA panel to represent industry members on OSHA’s proposed regulatory Injury and Illness Prevention Program (I2P2).
