Federal Register Prints Flexibility Agendas

Posted on 2/14/2012 by James Griffin

Yesterday, the Federal Register finally published the Fall 2011 Regulatory Flexibility Agendas, as required by the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 USC 602). Compared to the Unified Agenda published last month (and discussed ), the Flexibility Agendas only include rules that have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities (SEIOSNOSE) or are otherwise identified as significant rulemakings. Ever since the OMB took the lead on managing the agendas from the Federal Register, there hasn’t been much in the Flexibility Agendas that isn’t already in other sources. Department of Transportation Flexiblity Agenda (Fall 2011): PHMSA expects to continue working on new rules for lithium battery transportation, and to issue a set of miscellanous cleanup amendments later this year.
 
Here are links to the flexibility agendas for agencies in our area of EHS, and a few notes:
