→ NMFS Plan for Review of Regulations: Notice and Request for Comments

Comments Close:

The Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA) section 610 requires that the National Marine Fisheries Service periodically review existing regulations that have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities, such as small businesses, small organizations, and small governmental jurisdictions. This notice announces the existing rules that NMFS is reviewing under the RFA. The intended effect of this document is to inform the public of the rules under review, to outline NMFS' review process, and to provide an opportunity to comment. The information compiled through this routine action will also be relevant to the regulatory reviews required under  Executive Order 13771, “Reducing Regulation and Controlling Regulatory Costs” (Jan. 30, 2017) and Executive Order 13777, “Enforcing the Regulatory Reform Agenda” (Feb. 24, 2017).
