An Overview of Proposed Rulemaking 1205-AC13 National Apprenticeship System Enhancements
On December 14, 2023, the Department of Labor transmitted to the Office of the Federal Register a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) titled, “National Apprenticeship System Enhancements” (Regulatory Identifier Number 1205-AC13), which would update the regulations at 29 CFR part 29 addressing labor standards of apprenticeship and the governance of the National Apprenticeship System. The NPRM also proposes to make technical and conforming adjustments to the current text of 29 CFR part 30 (governing equal employment opportunity in apprenticeships) as appropriate. The Department of Labor issued this proposed rule to revise the regulation governing registered apprenticeship and the National Apprenticeship System in order to bolster the capacity of the National Apprenticeship System and to respond to evolving employer needs while ensuring that registered apprenticeships provide workers with equitable pathways to good jobs.
