Background Back to Top

Need for Correction

This correction is necessary because in the 2005 final regulation we inserted a new paragraph (b) in section 3602.31, without changing a subsequent cross-reference to reflect the new paragraph. The current regulations, therefore, have an inaccurate cross-reference. Inserting new paragraph (b) in the 2005 final rule without fixing the cross-reference in paragraph (d) raised the question whether an exception stated in paragraph (d) applies to volume limitations stated in paragraph (c), which was paragraph (b) before the 2005 rule inserted the new paragraph (b). This correction remedies this uncertainty.
