Notice of Availability of Preliminary Plan for Retrospective Analysis of Existing Rules

Through this notice, the Department of Energy (DOE) announces the availability of its preliminary plan for retrospective analysis of existing rules to make the agency’s regulatory program more effective and less burdensome in achieving its regulatory objectives. As part of its implementation of Executive Order 13563, ‘‘Improving Regulation and Regulatory Review,’’ issued by the President on January 18, 2011, DOE  sought public comments on whether any of its existing regulations should be modified, streamlined, expanded, or repealed. DOE has considered these comments in the development of its preliminary plan.
