Final rule.


This final rule removes the Department of the Army's regulation concerning participation of Army bands on and off post. This part has been superseded by requirements which direct appropriate participation of U.S. military bands on and off post. This part conveys internal Army policy and procedures and is unnecessary. Therefore, this part should be removed from the CFR.


This rule is effective on August 27, 2018.

Public comment on the removal of 32 CFR part 508 is not required because the regulation involves a matter relating to agency management and personnel, and because the regulation is a general statement of policy.

DoD internal guidance will continue to be published in Army Regulation 220-90, “Army Music,” available at​ProductMaps/​PubForm/​AR.aspx.

This rule is not significant under Executive Order (E.O.) 12866, “Regulatory Planning and Review,” therefore, E.O. 13771, “Reducing Regulation and Controlling Regulatory Costs” does not apply.
