Title: ●Issuing of Certificates in Lieu of Lost or Destroyed Certificates of Separation 

This final rule removes 32 CFR part 887, Issuing of Certificates in Lieu of Lost or Destroyed Certificates of Separation,” which was codified on January 14, 1988 (53 FR 876), and never updated. The content of the rule is covered in the National Archive and Records Administration (NARA) regulation at 36 CFR part 1233, Transfer, Use, and Disposition Of Records in a NARA Federal Records Center,” codified on October 2, 2009 (74 FR 51014), and most recently updated on March 30, 2018 (83 FR 13655). Part 1233 outlines the requirement to fill out a Standard Form 180, "Request Pertaining to Military Records.” NARA’s regulation also directs military veterans and their next of kin to its website that outlines procedures for requesting copies of military records held by the Services and NARA (Source: ). This removal supports a recommendation of the DoD Regulatory Reform Task Force.
