Executive Memoranda Put Freeze on New Regulations
A “Freeze” on New RegulationsThe first memorandum, issued on January 20, effectively puts a “freeze” on new regulations. The executive memo directs the heads of Federal agencies to hold off on publishing any new rules until they are reviewed by “a department or agency head appointed or designated by the President after noon on January 20 2017.”
In addition, Federal agencies must withdraw any regulatory actions sent for publication but not yet published in the Federal Register, pending review. This includes the US DOT’s HM 215N Harmonization rule and revised rules for lithium batteries, announced as Final last week.
Lastly, for regulations already published but not yet in effect, regulatory agencies must postpone the effective date for 60 days.

This memo directs executive departments and agencies to support manufacturing in the United States by expediting reviews and approvals for proposals to construct or expand manufacturing facilities. In the memorandum, the President directs the Secretary of Commerce to:
- Coordinate with agencies, including the US EPA, Department of Energy, and the OMB;
- Conduct outreach to stakeholders about the impacts of Federal regulations; and
- Submit a report that identifies priority actions for streamlining permitting processes and reducing the regulatory burden on manufacturers.

Amazing instructor; real-life examples. Lion training gets better every year!
Excellent. I learned more in two days with Lion than at a 5-day program I took with another provider.
I was able to present my scenario to the instructor and worked thru the regulations together. In the past, I attended another training firm's classes. Now, I have no intention of leaving Lion!

I think LION does an excellent job of any training they do. Materials provided are very useful to my day-to-day work activities.
This was the 1st instructor that has made the topic actually enjoyable and easy to follow and understand. Far better than the "other" training providers our company has attended!

The training was impressive. I am not a fan of online training but this was put together very well. I would recommend Lion to others.
The online course was well thought out and organized, with good interaction between the student and the course.

Lion does a great job summarizing and communicating complicated EH&S-related regulations.
