SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

It has been determined that publication of this rule in the Federal Register for public comment is impracticable, unnecessary, and contrary to public interest since it is based on removing policies and procedures that are solely internal to the DON. Specifically, the subpart this rule is removing prescribes internal instructions for making available for public inspection, and copying, certain classes of documents; maintaining current indexes of documents, and publishing such indexes or making them available by other means; receiving and considering petitions of members of the public for the issuance, revision, or cancellation of documents of some classes; and, distributing the Federal Register for official use within the DON. These internal procedures will continue to be available at https://doni.documentservices.dla.mil/​Directives/​05000%20General%20Management%20Security%20and%20Safety%20Services/​05-700%20General%20External%20and%20Internal%20Relations%20Services/​5720.45C.pdf.

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