President Trump’s regulatory moratorium captures new rules for truck drivers, tobacco products and workplace safety in Wednesday’s edition of the Federal Register.

Take a look:

Beryllium: The Department of Labor (DOL) is delaying new workplace safety standards to comply with President Trump’s regulatory moratorium.

The Labor Department’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) issued new rules to protect workers from exposure to beryllium on Jan. 9, but is now delaying the standards.

The beryllium standards will now go into effect on March 21.

Trucks: The Department of Transportation (DOT) is delaying new training requirements for entry-level truck drivers.

The Transportation Department’s Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) issued the training requirements in December, but is now delaying the rules to comply with Trump’s regulatory moratorium.

The truck driver training requirements will now go into effect on March 21.

Tobacco: The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is delaying new tobacco rules.

To comply with Trump’s regulatory moratorium, the FDA will delay new requirements for tobacco product submissions issued in December that block the agency from reviewing applications that are not written in English.

The submission requirements will now go into effect on March 21.
