Retrospective Review of Rules

September 2012 RRR Report

The Department prepared its final plan for the "Retrospective Review and Analysis of Existing Rules" in response to Executive Order 13563, which includes our responses to public comments and suggestions received during development of the final plan.  This is the September 2012 status report on the progress of our plan.

DOT's Review Process

Generally, each DOT agency has divided its rules into 10 different groups and analyzes one group each year.  For purposes of these reviews,  a year coincides with the fall-to-fall schedule for publication of the Regulatory Agenda.

DOT's Review Plan

DOT has long recognized the importance of regularly reviewing its existing regulations to determine whether they need to be revised or revoked.  Our 1979 Regulatory Policies and Procedures require such reviews.
