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.
Pursuant to the authority vested in me under the Foreign Missions Act (FMA), 22 U.S.C. 4301 et seq., and specifically 22 U.S.C. 4304(b) and (c), and by the authority vested in me under the FMA and Delegation of Authority No. 147 of September 13, 1982, and Delegation of Authority No. 198 of September 16, 1992, I hereby determine that it is reasonably necessary on the basis of reciprocity or otherwise to adjust for costs and procedures of obtaining benefits for missions of the United States abroad that the benefit of obtaining zoning approval and permit issuances associated with the construction of the People's Republic of China's diplomatic and consular facilities and residences in the United States, be predicated on the payment of surcharges, calculated by the Department's Office of Foreign Missions (OFM) to reflect the fee the U.S. Embassy in Beijing and its consular posts are required to pay the Beijing Service Bureau for Diplomatic Missions, or its regional counterparts, for the provision of services associated with the filing and approval matters pertaining to the construction of diplomatic or consular facilities in China. The authority to regulate foreign mission benefits under the FMA has been delegated to the Director of the Office of Foreign Missions (Delegation of Authority No. 214).Start Signature
