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.

Correction to final rule.
This document contains a correction to the final rule published Thursday, December 18, 2008 at 73 FR 76914, relating to the rules and procedures that govern the standards of representation and professional conduct for practitioners who appear before the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR).
Effective Date: January 5, 2009.Start Further Info

John N. Blum, Acting General Counsel, Executive Office for Immigration Review, Suite 2600, 5107 Leesburg Pike, Falls Church, Virginia 22041, telephone number (703) 305-0470 (not a toll free call).End Further Info End Preamble Start Supplemental Information
The final rule that is the subject of these corrections amends Department of Justice regulations by amending the rules and procedures for imposing disciplinary sanctions against practitioners who engage in criminal, unethical, or unprofessional conduct, or in frivolous behavior in proceedings before EOIR. The final rule increases the number of grounds for discipline and improves the clarity and uniformity of the existing rules while incorporating miscellaneous technical and procedural changes.
Need for Correction
As published, the final rule contains a typographical error that may cause confusion and therefore is in need of clarification. The instruction for 8 CFR 1003.103 says in part that the first sentence of paragraph (a)(1) is revised. However the entire paragraph is revised. The first sentence is revised to reflect the technical correction in terminology from “the Office of the General Counsel of EOIR” to “the EOIR disciplinary counsel,” and to allow for immediate suspension of a practitioner who resigns from the highest court of any State, possession, territory, or Commonwealth of the United States, or the District of Columbia, or any Federal court, while a disciplinary investigation is pending. The paragraph is further revised to incorporate the technical correction in terminology from “the Office of the General Counsel of the Service” to “DHS.”
For the reasons stated above, in the FR Doc. E8-30027, beginning on page 76914 in the Federal Register of Thursday, December 18, 2008, the following correction is made:
On page 76923, in the third column, instruction 7a. is corrected to read as follows:
7. Amend § 1003.103 by:End Amendment Part Start Amendment Part
