Current Rulemakings and Notices

Please note that this page is undergoing migration to energy.gov and will not be updated again until January 2014. For the most up-to-date publications, meeting dates, and comment deadlines, please refer to regulations.gov or the individual rulemaking pages.

The Department of Energy has compiled a summary table that links to each current rulemaking and its associated product page. Each rulemaking page:

  • Provides an update on the most recent activity related to that rulemaking
  • Describes the rulemaking's purpose
  • Lists rulemaking milestones and provides links to key rulemaking documents and the rulemaking docket
  • Links to any related rulemakings
  • Describes how to participate in any public meeting (or webinar)
  • Describes how to submit public comments to the docket
  • Provides the statutory authority for the rulemaking

Links to current implementation, compliance, and enforcement (ICE) rulemakings are provided underneath the tables.
