Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

820 ILCS 219/25

    (820 ILCS 219/25)
    (Text of Section before amendment by P.A. 102-705)
    Sec. 25. Occupational safety and health standards.
    (a) All federal occupational safety and health standards which the United States Secretary of Labor has promulgated or modified in accordance with the federal Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 and which are in effect on the effective date of this Act shall be and are hereby made rules of the Department unless the Director promulgates an alternate standard that is at least as effective in providing safe and healthful employment and places of employment as a federal standard. Before developing and adopting an alternate standard or modifying or revoking an existing standard, the Director must consider factual information that includes:
        (1) Expert technical knowledge.
        (2) Input from interested persons, including
    
employers, employees, recognized standards-producing organizations, and the public.
    (b) All federal occupational safety and health standards which the United States Secretary of Labor promulgates or modifies in accordance with the federal Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 on or after the effective date of this Act, unless revoked by the Secretary of Labor, shall become rules of the Department within 6 months after their federal promulgation date, unless there has been in effect in this State at the time of the promulgation or modification of the federal standard an alternate State standard that is at least as effective in providing safe and healthful employment and places of employment as a federal standard. The alternate State standard shall not become effective, however, unless the Department, within 45 days after the federal promulgation date, files with the office of the Secretary of State in Springfield, Illinois, a certified copy of the rule as provided in the Illinois Administrative Procedure Act.
