Rules of Conduct and Standards of Responsibility for Appointed 
Representatives; Correction

AGENCY: Social Security Administration.

ACTION: Correcting amendments.

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

SUMMARY: On July 2, 2018, we published final rules in the Federal 
Register revising our rules of conduct and standards of responsibility 
for representatives. Those final rules reduced the amount of time to 
request Appeals Council review of a hearing officer's decision from 30 
days to 14 business days, but we inadvertently failed to make the same 
change in the parallel sections of the CFR, which details when the 
Appeals Council will dismiss a request for review. This document 
corrects the omitted sections and makes our regulations consistent.

DATES: Effective September 30, 2019.

Operations, Social Security Administration, 5107 Leesburg Pike, Falls

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: We published final rule, Rules of Conduct 
and Standards of Responsibility for Appointed Representatives, in the 
Federal Register on July 2, 2018. (83 FR 30849). Among other changes, 
the final rules reduced the amount of time to request an Appeals 
Council review of a hearing officer's decision from 30 days to 14 
business days (Sec. Sec.  404.1775 and 416.1575).\1\

    We inadvertently failed to make correlated and necessary, changes 
in the sections describing when the Appeals Council will dismiss such a 
request for review of a hearing officer's decision. Specifically, 
paragraph (c) of sections 404.1795 and 416.1595 currently reference the 
prior ``30-day time period'' instead of the new 14 business day time 
period. This correction revises the incorrect time period identified in 
404.1795 and 416.1595 to match the correct time period provided in 
404.1775(b) and 416.1575(b).
