Current Regulatory Plan
the Unified Agenda of Regulatory and Deregulatory Actions

  • You must select an agency.

The Trump Administration's Unified Agenda of Regulatory and Deregulatory Actions reports on the actions administrative agencies plan to issue in the near and long term. Released by the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, this Agenda represents this administration's next step in fundamental regulatory reform and a reorientation toward reducing unnecessary regulatory burden 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 newly anticipated deregulatory actions that emerged from reviews already well underway. Agencies have committed to careful assessment of the costs and benefits of each regulatory and deregulatory action, and to prioritizing the maximization of net benefits of regulations. The Agenda recognizes that reform will take time and require rigorous analysis, public input, and careful consideration of a variety of important legal and social values. 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 and includes the following developments:

  • Better than 2:1 - Agencies plan to finalize three deregulatory actions for every new regulatory action in FY2018.
  • 1579 Withdrawn or Delayed Actions - Agencies continue to eliminate, delay, or streamline regulatory actions in the pipeline. In this Administration, agencies withdrew or delayed 1579 planned regulatory actions, reflecting all such changes from Fall 2016 to Fall 2017.
    • 635 regulations were withdrawn from the Unified Agenda (469 in the Spring 2017 Update to Agenda; 166 in the Fall 2017 Agenda)
    • 244 regulations were made inactive (166 in the Spring 2017 Update to Agenda; 78 in the Fall 2017 Agenda)
    • 700 regulations were added to the Long Term list (401 in the Spring 2017 Update to Agenda; 299 in the Fall 2017 Agenda)
  • System Upgrade - The Trump Administration's comprehensive regulatory reform efforts have required major changes to the regulations database. Now, the Federal regulatory database systematically identifies whether regulations are net regulatory or deregulatory.
  • Greater Transparency - Earlier this year the Administration released a non-public list of planned regulatory actions developed by the previous Administration. This action is supported by non-partisan observers such as the Administrative Conference of the United States, and the inactive list will continue to be available on, now in a newly searchable format.

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. displays editions of the Unified Agenda of Federal Regulatory and Deregulatory Actions beginning with fall 1995.
