Commerce Regulatory Compliance Plan

On January 18, 2011, President Obama issued a Memorandum for all Executive Departments and Agencies on Regulatory Compliance.  The Memorandum requires all agencies with regulatory compliance and administrative enforcement responsibilities to develop plans to make information related to regulatory compliance and enforcement activities accessible, downloadable and searchable online. 

The Department of Commerce’s twelve operating units and the Office of the Secretary are all involved in the regulatory process.  Three of these operating units are involved in compliance and enforcement activities:   the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), a Line Office within the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration; the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS); and the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).  Commerce is committed to making its compliance and enforcement information transparent and readily available to the public.
