The Military Selective Service Act (Act) requires that certain males register with the Selective Service System. 50 U.S.C. App. 451 et seq. The time, place and manner of registration is to be determined by proclamation of the President and by rules and regulations. 50 U.S.C. App. 453(a). The President is permitted to delegate the authority to issue rules and regulations under the Act. 50 U.S.C. App. 460(c). On October 12, 1971, E.O. 11623 was signed delegating the authority to issue rules and regulations under the Military Selective Service Act to the Director of the Selective Service System. Proclamation 4771 of July 2, 1980, provides for individuals to comply with the registration requirement of the Military Selective Service Act by completing a Registration Card at a classified Post Office.
This Proclamation was amended by Proclamation 7275, February 22, 2000 (65 FR 9199, February 24, 2000), to provide additional means to comply with the registration requirement. The rules are being amended to reflect additional registration methods prescribed by the Director of Selective Service as authorized by Proclamation 7275. The technical amendments to the rules on registration and the duty to register will inform the public about the various means to comply with the registration requirement.
The SSS considers this rule (32 CFR Part 1615) to be a procedural rule which is exempt from the notice and comment under 5 U.S.C. 533(b)(3)(A). This rule is not a significant rule for the purpose of Executive Order 12866 and has not been reviewed by the Office of Management and Budget. As required by the Regulatory Flexibility Act, SSS certifies that these regulatory amendments will not have a significant impact on small business entities.Start List of Subjects
