Unified Agenda of Federal Regulatory and Deregulatory Actions

Reginfo Unified Agenda Website SnapshotUnified Agenda of Federal Regulatory and Deregulatory Actions is a semiannual compilation of information about regulations under development by federal agencies, published in the spring and fall. Executive Order (EO) 12866 "Regulatory Planning and Review" and Office of Management and Budget memoranda implementing Section 4 of that Order establish minimum standards for agencies' agendas, including specific types of information for each entry. 

In addition, the Regulatory Flexibility Act requires that agencies publish semiannual "regulatory flexibility agendas" describing regulatory actions they are developing that will have significant effects on small businesses and other small entities (5 U.S.C. 602). The Unified Agenda helps agencies fulfill all of these requirements. All federal regulatory agencies have chosen to publish their regulatory agendas as part of this publication. The fall editions of the Unified Agenda include the agency regulatory plans required by EO 12866, which identify regulatory priorities and provide additional detail about the most important significant regulatory actions that agencies expect to take in the coming year.

The Unified Agenda can be found online at http://www.reginfo.gov/public/do/eAgendaMain and a reduced print version can be found in the Federal Register.  Information regarding obtaining printed copies can also be found on the Reginfo.gov website.
