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.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) was established on January 24, 2003, pursuant to the Homeland Security Act of 2002, Public Law 107-296 (HSA). DHS is the result of the reorganization of 22 federal agencies, including the former Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) from the Department of Justice and the U.S. Customs Service (Customs Service) from the Department of the Treasury. Pursuant to sections 442 and 542 of the HSA, INS and the Customs Service were transferred to DHS effective March 1, 2003, and reorganized to become the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), the Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), and the Bureau of Customs and Border Protection (CBP).
DHS has decided to change the name of these components from the Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), and the Bureau of Customs and Border Protection to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). Pursuant to section 872(a)(2) of the HSA (6 U.S.C. 452(a)(2)), DHS is required to provide notice of the name change to Congress no later than 60 days before the change will be effective. DHS notified Congress on January 18, 2007.
This Notice informs the public that all official documents and future regulatory actions involving the Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement now will identify U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) as the applicable DHS component, and all references to the Bureau of Customs and Border Protection in existing documents and actions henceforth shall be construed as references to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).Start Signature
