Background

Over the years, we have published in the Federal Register several notices of proposed rulemaking (NPRMs) for which we never issued final rules, and we have decided not to pursue final rules on these NPRMs at this time. We have made some of the changes we proposed in these NPRMs in the context of other rulemaking proceedings; in other cases, we have decided not to pursue the policy we proposed in the NPRM. Consequently, as part of a comprehensive review of our regulatory processes, we are withdrawing the seven NPRMs listed below.
