Title: Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) Program 

The Department of Defense is revising 32 CFR part 103 by finalizing two interim final rules that published on September 27, 2016, at 81 FR 66185-66189 and 81 FR 66424-66460 into this one final rule, deleting all guidance internal to DoD, and incorporating those policy provisions from 32 CFR part 105 that directly affect DoD's obligations to provide Sexual Assault Prevention and response (SAPR) services to certain members of the public, who are adult victims of sexual assault.  With the publication of this rule, 32 CFR part 103 will be the only part that outlines the Department’s obligations to provide SAPR services to certain members of the public. After this rule is codified, 32 CFR part 105 will be removed.  

No changes to DoD’s SAPR program are being made as a result of this rule. The revision of 32 CFR part 103 supports a recommendation of the DoD Regulatory Reform Task Force.
