This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.

Notice of availability.
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has developed Regulatory Issue Summary (RIS) 2004-09, “Status on Deferral of Active Regulation of Ground-Water Protection at In Situ Leach (ISL) Uranium Extraction Facilities,” to inform interested parties of NRC's proposal to defer active ground-water regulation at ISL facilities to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-authorized States. The NRC shares the regulatory oversight of ground-water at ISL facilities with the EPA and EPA-authorized States, under the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA). The RIS summarizes the process that the NRC plans to use to assure that EPA-authorized States' ground-water protection programs provides adequate protection of public health and safety, and the environment, equivalent to the NRC program. On February 23, 2004, the NRC issued RIS 2004-02, requesting interested parties to submit information, on a voluntary basis, regarding the proposed action. RIS 2004-09 summarizes the comments received from interested parties and supersedes RIS 2004-02 in its entirety. No specific action or written response is required to this RIS.
