ACTION: Semiannual Regulatory Agenda. AGENCY: This agenda announces the proposed regulatory actions that GSA plans for the next 12 months and those that were completed since the fall 2010 edition. This agenda was developed under the guidelines of Executive Order 12866, ‘‘Regulatory Planning and Review.’’ GSA’s purpose in publishing this agenda is to allow interested persons an opportunity to participate in the rulemaking process. GSA also invites interested persons to recommend existing significant regulations for review to determine whether they should be modified or eliminated. Proposed rules may be reviewed in their entirety at the Government’s rulemaking Web site at http://www.regulations.gov. SUMMARY: Since the fall 2007 edition, the Internet has been the basic means for disseminating the Unified Agenda. The complete Unified Agenda will be available online at www.reginfo.gov, in a format that offers users a greatly enhanced ability to obtain information from the Agenda database. Because publication in the Federal Register is mandated for the regulatory flexibility agendas required by the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 602), GSA’s printed agenda entries include only: (1) Rules that are in the Agency’s regulatory flexibility agenda, in accordance with the Regulatory Flexibility Act, because they are likely to have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities; and (2) Any rules that the Agency has identified for periodic review under section 610 of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. Printing of these entries is limited to fields that contain information required by the Regulatory Flexibility Act’s Agenda requirements. Additional information on these entries is available in the Unified Agenda published on the Internet. In addition, for fall editions of the Agenda, the entire Regulatory Plan will continue to be printed in the Federal Register, as in past years, including GSA’s regulatory plan.

Unified Agenda of Federal Regulatory and Deregulatory Actions



AGENCY: General Services Administration (GSA).



ACTION: Semiannual Regulatory Agenda.



-----------------------------------------------------------------------



SUMMARY: This agenda announces the proposed regulatory actions that GSA 

plans for the next 12 months and those that were completed since the 

fall 2010 edition. This agenda was developed under the guidelines of 

Executive Order 12866, ``Regulatory Planning and Review.'' GSA's 

purpose in publishing this agenda is to allow interested persons an 

opportunity to participate in the rulemaking process. GSA also invites 

interested persons to recommend existing significant regulations for 

review to determine whether they should be modified or eliminated. 

Proposed rules may be reviewed in their entirety at the Government's 

rulemaking Web site at http://www.regulations.gov.

    Since the fall 2007 edition, the Internet has been the basic means 

for disseminating the Unified Agenda. The complete Unified Agenda will 

be available online at www.reginfo.gov, in a format that offers users a 

greatly enhanced ability to obtain information from the Agenda 

database.

    Because publication in the Federal Register is mandated for the 

regulatory flexibility agendas required by the Regulatory Flexibility 

Act (5 U.S.C. 602), GSA's printed agenda entries include only:

    (1) Rules that are in the Agency's regulatory flexibility agenda, 

in accordance with the Regulatory Flexibility Act, because they are 

likely to have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of 

small entities; and

    (2) Any rules that the Agency has identified for periodic review 

under section 610 of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.

    Printing of these entries is limited to fields that contain 

information required by the Regulatory Flexibility Act's Agenda 

requirements. Additional information on these entries is available in 

the Unified Agenda published on the Internet. In addition, for fall 

editions of the Agenda, the entire Regulatory Plan will continue to be 

printed in the Federal Register, as in past years, including GSA's 

regulatory plan.
