FPS Rulemaking Activity

FPS Rulemaking Activity

Information relating to rulemaking actions by the Facilities Planning and Safety Program can be accessed below and includes information about temporary rules, proposed rules out for public comment and recently filed new and amended rules. Persons or communities who may be affected by FPS regulatory functions and who may be interested in serving on a Rulemaking Advisory Committee (RAC) may apply to serve on a RAC. RACs are an important process that allow members of the public and communities to provide input and suggestion during the development of new rules or amending existing rules.
