DOT/OST RIN: 2105-AF08 Publication ID: Spring 2022 
Title: +Transportation for Individuals With Disabilities; Service Animals and Technical Corrections 

This rulemaking updates the definition of service animal under 49 CFR 37.3 to ensure consistency across Federal regulations. The current definition leaves transportation modes other than air transportation subject to accommodating unusual service animals, such as reptiles and primates. The updated definition would be consistent with that applicable to air transportation and other industries. The rulemaking would also make a number of technical corrections needed to amend or remove outdated regulatory provisions.
