Regulations that Govern Apprenticeship
The regulations established in the Fitsgerald Act of 1937 are used by the U.S. Department of Labor—Office of Apprenticeship and all states and State Apprenticeship Agencies and are printed in the Code of Federal Regulations.
29 CFR 29 outlines labor standards, policies and procedures for the registration, cancellation and deregistration of apprenticeship programs, apprenticeship agreements, and the administration of the National Apprenticeship System. Final ruling for the most recent updates to 29 CFR 29 was on December 28, 2008.
29 CFR 30 sets forth policies and procedures to promote equality of opportunity in apprenticeship programs registered with the U.S. Department of Labor and in state apprenticeship programs registered with recognized state apprenticeship agencies.
An update to this regulation is forthcoming. The public will be afforded an opportunity to provide comments on the proposed amendment to Apprenticeship EEO regulations when the Department publishes a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) in the Federal Register.
