Title 32, Subtitle B, Chapter XII of the CFR is titled “Defense Logistics Agency.” According to the Office of the Federal Register's interpretation of 1 CFR chapter I, the DLA as the sole “owner” of this chapter is the only agency that can amend these regulations. However, the DLA is not an agency separate from the Department of Defense, but a component of it.
Adding the Department of Defense to the heading of chapter XII establishes that the DLA is part of, and subordinate to, the Department of Defense with respect to authority over chapter XII. This ensures that the Department of Defense can also amend chapter XII when necessary. Therefore, the Department of Defense is updating the title of Chapter XII.
Start Amendment Part
