Withdrawn Rulemakings
Sometimes, EPA will choose to terminate a rulemaking. The Withdrawn page lists those rulemakings that have bee withdrawn in the past year.

See Rulemakings Open for Comment
Rulemakings remain in the Proposal Phase from the time the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking is published in the Federal Register until the Final Rule is published.  During a discreet portion of this time, a rule is usually open for comment.  See a list of those rules currently open for comment. From there, you can reach Regulations.gov, where you can comment electronically on the rule.


This site provides summaries of priority rulemakings and priority retrospective reviews of existing regulations. We update most of the site at the beginning of each month, though some data is updated more frequently if it is time sensitive. The information on this site is not intended to and does not commit EPA to specific conclusions or actions. For example, after further analysis, EPA may decide the effects of a rule would be different or it may decide to terminate a rulemaking.
