THE REGULATORY Information Service Center (RISC)
was created in June 1981. The Center undertakes projects that will facilitate
development of and access to information about Federal regulatory and
deregulatory activities. It accomplishes this by gathering and publishing
information on Federal regulations and their effects on society. The Center
provides this information to the President, Congress, agency officials, and the
general public to help them better understand and manage the regulatory process.
The Center's principal publication is the Unified Agenda.
Since 1978, Federal agencies have been
required by Executive orders to publish agendas of regulatory and deregulatory
activities. The Regulatory Plan, which is published as part of the fall edition
of the Agenda, identifies regulatory priorities and contains additional detail
about the most important significant regulatory actions that agencies expect to
take in the coming year.
RegInfo.gov displays editions of the
Unified Agenda of Federal Regulatory and Deregulatory Actions beginning with fall 1995.
