The Department of Energy today announces the opening of the reply comment period for its Request for Information implementing Executive Order 13563, seeking public comment on how best to review its existing regulations and to identify whether any of its existing regulations should be modified, streamlined, expanded, or repealed. The Department is now interested in receiving comment on the suggestions and comments received from outside parties.  Those comments and suggestions are posted on the Office of the General Counsel website: Retrospective Review of Regulations

On January 31, 2011, the Department took two steps to launch its retrospective review of existing regulatory and reporting requirements. First, the Department issued a Request for Information (RFI) seeking public comment on how best to review its existing regulations and to identify whether any of its existing regulations should be modified, streamlined, expanded, or repealed. Second, the Department created a link on the Web page of DOE’s Office of the General Counsel to an e-mail in-box atRegulatory.Review@hq.doe.gov, which interested parties’ could use to identify to DOE - on a continuing basis - regulations that may be in need of review in the future.
