The Trump Administration's Unified Agenda of Regulatory and Deregulatory Actions (Agenda) reports on the actions administrative agencies plan to issue in the near and long term. Released by the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, the Agenda demonstrates this Administration's ongoing commitment to fundamental regulatory reform and a reorientation toward reducing unnecessary regulatory burdens on the American people.
By amending and eliminating regulations that are ineffective, duplicative, and obsolete, the Administration can promote economic growth and innovation and protect individual liberty.
Fulfilling longstanding principles to review and assess existing regulations, the Agenda includes the withdrawal and reconsideration of numerous regulatory actions, as well as new deregulatory actions. Agencies are committed to careful assessment of the costs and benefits of each regulatory and deregulatory action and to ensuring that the benefits of regulations substantially justify the costs. The Agenda recognizes that reform will take time and require rigorous analysis, public input, and careful consideration of legal requirements. To this end, the Agenda provides greater information and transparency about regulatory actions proposed by agencies.
The Agenda represents ongoing progress toward the goals of more effective and less burdensome regulation. This Spring Agenda update reflects the following broad regulatory reform priorities:

Introduction to the Unified Agenda of Federal Regulatory and Deregulatory Actions
Obtaining Printed Copies
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.
