The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) semi-annual regulatory agenda is now available. This agenda provides summary descriptions of significant and not significant regulations being developed by USDA agencies in conformance with Executive Order 12866, “Regulatory Planning and Review.”

The agenda also describes regulations affecting small entities as required by section 602 of Public Law 96-354, the Regulatory Flexibility Act and identifies regulatory actions that are being reviewed in compliance with section 610(c) of the law.

USDA has attempted to list all regulations and regulatory reviews pending at the time of publication except for minor and routine or repetitive actions. There is no legal significance to the omission of an item from this listing.  Also, the dates shown for the steps of each action are estimated and are not commitments to act on or by the date shown.
