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.

A notice was published in the Federal Register, January 24, 2006, (71 FR 3817) requesting comments on the possible development of United States Standards for Grades of Pea Pods. The proposed U.S. standard would provide industry with a common language and a uniform basis for trading, thus promoting the orderly and efficient marketing of pea pods. The comment period ended on March 27, 2006.
A request was received from a packer/shipper of pea pods, expressing the need for additional time to review the proposed U.S. standard. The packer/shipper requested the comment period be extended to allow them the opportunity to submit comments.
After reviewing the request, AMS is reopening and extending the comment period in order to allow sufficient time for interested persons, including the packer/shipper, to file comments.Start Signature
