egulatory lookback review of OSHA’s Cotton Dust standard. OSHA’s lookback reviews all follow the same general format. They ascertain whether the regulation was successful, whether it is still necessary, and whether it has had a particularly negative effect on small business. The cotton dust stand was successful, the need for it still exists, and small businesses were not unduly affected by it.
