The Department of Energy (DOE) has announced a further step to implementing the President’s Executive Order on Improving Regulatory Review.  The Executive Order directs federal agencies to review existing regulations and determine whether they are still necessary and crafted effectively to solve current problems.  Engaging the public in an open, transparent process is a crucial step in DOE’s regulatory review process.  Because public comments in response to the Request for Information (RFI) issued in January were important in the development of DOE’s plan for retrospective regulatory review, DOE issued a second RFI this week asking the public how best to streamline existing regulations.  DOE is committed to maintaining an ongoing culture of retrospective review and analysis to ensure that our rules are working for America.  Public input identifying DOE regulations that might be modified, streamlined, expanded, or repealed will help DOE ensure that its regulations effectively achieve their objectives.
