June 1 is the new deadline for submitting comments to the Office of the Federal Register on a petition requesting revisions to the regulations governing incorporation by reference in the Code of Federal Regulations.  More information on the petition is available in my March 8 blog post.

To submit comments, visit www.regulations.gov and search for “NARA 12-0002.” You can also submit comments by visiting the Federal Register’s website  and clicking on the green button that says “Submit a Formal Comment.” Either way, your comments will appear on www.regulations.gov.

Further information on Recommendation 2011-5, the Conference’s recently adopted recommendation addressing the complex issues raised by the practice of incorporation by reference can be found on the Incorporation by Reference project page.
