[DHS Docket No. OGC-RP-04-001]

 Unified Agenda of Federal Regulatory and Deregulatory Actions

AGENCY: Office of the Secretary, DHS.

ACTION: Semiannual regulatory agenda.

_______________________________________________________________________

SUMMARY: This notice is given pursuant to the requirements of the 
Regulatory Flexibility Act (Pub. L. 96-354, September 19, 1980) and 
Executive Order (E.O.) 12866, ``Regulatory Planning and Review'' 
(September 30, 1993), which require the publication of a semiannual 
agenda of regulations by the Department of Homeland Security 
(Department or DHS). The regulatory agenda is a semiannual summary of 
all current and projected rulemakings, and completed actions of the 
Department. This is the Department's third semi-annual agenda and 
second regulatory plan. Under the Homeland Security Act of 2002, Public 
Law 107-295 (Homeland Security Act), 22 pre-existing agencies or 
components transferred to DHS. The Department of Homeland Security is 
comprised of five major divisions or directorates: Border and 
Transportation Security; Emergency Preparedness and Response; Science 
and Technology; Information Analysis and Infrastructure Protection; and 
Management. Besides the five Directorates of DHS, several other 
critical agencies were folded into the Department or were created 
including the U.S. Coast Guard, the U.S. Secret Service, the U.S. 
Citizenship and Immigration Services, the Office of Private Sector 
Liaison, and the Office of Inspector General.

     Although DHS is relatively new, many of its components had 
active regulatory agendas that have carried into this agenda, such 
as the legacy Immigration and Nationalization Service (INS), which 
has been divided into the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration 
Services, the Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and 
the Bureau of Customs and Border Protection. Together, the latter 
components alone comprise half of the DHS regulatory agenda. The 
legacy INS rulemakings primarily set forth application or other 
process standards for obtaining benefits, privileges, or other 
attributes afforded to visa or citizen holders. Other DHS 
components, such as the U.S. Coast Guard and the Transportation 
Security Administration (TSA), have regulatory functions rooted in 
promulgating safety or security standards. DHS recently joined the 
Environmental Protection Agency Federal Partner On-line Electronic 
Docket System (EDocket). Members of the public may access this 
docket at: http://www.epa.gov/feddocket. All Coast Guard and TSA 
electronic dockets may continue to be accessed at: http://
dms.dot.gov. Since Coast Guard and TSA were originally on the 
Department of Transportation's (DOT) electronic Docketing 
Management System, those agencies will remain on that system until 
DHS fully migrates to the Federal Electronic Docketing System to 
occur sometime in late fiscal year 2005.

     The DHS agenda provides the public with information about the 
Department's regulatory practices. It is expected that this 
information will enable the public to more effectively participate 
in the Department's regulatory activities. The public is also 
invited to submit comments on any aspect of this agenda.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: 

    General

     You should direct all comments and inquiries on the agenda in 
general to the Regulations Division, Office of the General Counsel, 
Department of Homeland Security, Washington, DC 20528.

    Specific

     You should direct all comments and inquiries on the particular 
items in the agenda to the individual listed for the regulation or 
the general rulemaking contact person for the DHS components.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The semiannual agenda of the Department 
conforms to the Unified Agenda format developed by the Regulatory 
Information Service Center.

     For this edition of DHS' regulatory agenda, the most 
significant regulatory actions are included in The Regulatory Plan, 
which appears in part II of this issue of the Federal Register. The 
Regulatory Plan entries are listed in the table of contents below 
and are denoted by a bracketed bold reference, which directs the 
reader to the appropriate number in part II. DHS' Statement of 
Regulatory Priorities is also included in part II.

Dated: September 24, 2004.

 Laticia Argenti,

Deputy Associate General Counsel for Regulations.
