Need for Correction

The regulations as published contain a nonexistent cross reference section which may confuse or mislead the public.

In § 3809.202(d), we have a cross reference to a nonexistent § 3809.800(c) which could mislead or confuse the public. Therefore, we are changing the cross reference from § 3809.800(c) to § 3809.802.
