Regulatory Development and Retrospective Review Tracker

Rules by Projected Publication Date

This page lists the date (mm/yyyy) on which the next stage of a rule is projected to publish in the Federal Register (FR). For example, if the next stage EPA expects to publish is a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM), we list below the future date on which we expect to publish the NPRM in the FR. This date is subject to change during development of the rule. Any subsequent dates (e.g., the date we expect to publish the Final Rule) will not appear on this list until the NPRM actually publishes. Also, this list does not include rules that have been finalized already and therefore do not have a forthcoming publication date. To see final rules, go to the Rulemakings by Phase: Final Rule Published page.

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.
