About the Webinar:
The presentation will begin with some brief background on the Administrative Conference of the United States, which recently issued a recommendation to federal agencies and Congress on incorporation by reference in federal regulations. Ms. Bremer will then discuss the research underlying the recommendation and explain the recommendation’s provisions. Topics will include previous Conference work on the use of voluntary consensus standards in regulation, current federal standards policy, agency uses of voluntary consensus standards, and legal requirements for incorporation by reference. She will also discuss the Conference’s recommendations for addressing the challenge of updating incorporating regulations and ensuring that incorporated standards are reasonably available to the public. The presentation will conclude with a discussion of recent legislative action and proceedings before the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and the Office of the Federal Register (OFR).
