Commerce Preliminary Plan for Retrospective Analysis of Existing Rules

On January 18, 2011, in Executive Order 13563, the President directed each agency to review their "existing significant regulations, and consider how best to promote retrospective analysis of rules that may be outmoded, ineffective, insufficient, or excessively burdensome, and to modify, streamline, expand, or repeal them in accordance with what has been learned."

In response to this directive, Commerce created and released a preliminary plan for review of its regulations on May 26, 2011.

Commerce welcomes the public's comments and feedback on this preliminary plan.  Please send your comments to with "EO 13563 retrospective plan" in the subject line of the email.  We will accept comments until midnight on July 25th.
