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 2012 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

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.
