Title: Post-Employment Conflict of Interest Restrictions 
Abstract:

This interpretive regulation gives guidance for the Executive Branch on the various substantive restrictions of the current version of the post-Government employment conflict of interest statute 18 U.S.C. 207, which became effective January 1, 1991, pursuant to title I of the Ethics Reform Act of 1989 (Pub. L. 101-194), as amended. Parts of the regulation, dealing with procedures for waivers by the Office of Government Ethics of certain senior official constraints (based on executive agency hardship), designated senior employees, and separate Agency designations, have also previously been published in the Federal Register; such designations are periodically updated by the Office of Government Ethics. The Office of Government Ethics also continued to publish in the CFR the interpretive regulation, 5 CFR part 2637 (but now without the no-longer-effective former Senior Employee and old agency component designation listings), under the lifetime bar of the prior version of the post-employment law, which still applies to Executive Branch employees who left the Government before January 1, 1991. With the publication of the complete current post-employment law final regulation, the old part 2637 regulation has now been removed from the CFR.
