DOJ/BOP RIN: 1120-AB71 Publication ID: Fall 2023 
Title: Inmate Discipline Program: Disciplinary Segregation and Prohibited Act Code Changes 

In this document, the Bureau of Prisons (Bureau) proposes to amend its inmate discipline regulations in 28 CFR part 541 to reduce the potential length of the disciplinary segregation sanction. We also propose to make changes to the list of prohibited act codes to reflect changes in inmate conduct requiring disciplinary action.  Once the proposed rule is published, the Bureau looks forward to public participation and engagement with this rulemaking by way of submission of comments.  This particular rulemaking represents the culmination of years of thoughtful consideration of feedback the Department of Justice has offered the Bureau on subjects like the imposition of disciplinary segregation as part of disciplinary sanctions.
