PART 3—ADJUDICATION Subpart A—Pension, Compensation, and Dependency and Indemnity Compensation 1. The authority citation for part 3, subpart A continues to read as follows: ■ Authority: 38 U.S.C. 501(a), unless otherwise noted. 2. Amend § 3.321 by revising the heading of paragraph (b), and revising paragraph (b)(1), to read as follows: ■ General rating considerations: sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with RULES * * * * * (b) Extra-schedular ratings in unusual cases—(1) Disability compensation. Ratings shall be based, as far as practicable, upon the average impairments of earning capacity with the additional proviso that the Secretary shall from time to time readjust this schedule of ratings in accordance with experience. To accord justice to the exceptional case where the schedular evaluation is inadequate to rate a single service-connected disability, the Director of Compensation Service or his or her delegate is authorized to approve on the basis of the criteria set forth in this paragraph (b), an extra-schedular evaluation commensurate with the average impairment of earning capacity due exclusively to the disability. The governing norm in these exceptional cases is a finding by the Director of Compensation Service or delegatee that application of the regular schedular standards is impractical because the disability is so exceptional or unusual due to such related factors as marked interference with employment or frequent periods of hospitalization. * * * * * [FR Doc. 2017–26523 Filed 12–7–17; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 8320–01–P VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:24 Dec 07, 2017 Jkt 244001 40 CFR Part 52 Register on October 18, 2017 (82 FR 48435), on page 48439 is withdrawn effective December 8, 2017.
