Final Rule on Electronic Submission of Employer Identification Number (EIN)
Action 5255
General Information
Action Summary This final rule amends the existing record keeping regulation by rescinding the requirement for establishments with 250 or more employees to electronically submit information from OSHA Forms 300 and 301. These establishments will continue to be required to maintain those records on-site and OSHA and VOSH will continue to obtain them as needed through inspections and enforcement actions. OSHA is also amending the record keeping regulation to require covered employers to submit their Employer Identification Number (EIN) electronically with their injury and illness data, which will facilitate use of the data and may help reduce duplicative employer reporting.
