Question 440: In order to terminate a declaration of

pregnancy, i.e., due to termination of the pregnancy or

otherwise, must the female worker inform the licensee or

employer in writing?

Answer: No. There is no requirement in the regulation

the declaration of pregnancy is required to be in writing,

it would be a good practice to terminate the declaration in

the same manner. (References: 10 CFR 20.1208, 10 CFR
