The first thing you do is to find the docket number from EPA’s website. Let’s use the case of the latest proposed SPCC rgulations as an example. You go to www.epa.gov/oilspill/spcc_oct07.htm and find out its Docket ID No. (EPA-HQ-OPA-2007-0584).
You then go to www.regulations.gov and key in the docket number and you will be able to find all the supporting documents used by EPA to justify its proposed regulations as well as all the comments that have been submitted by the general public.
You can also subscribe to www.regulations.gov’s server and it will email you any new developments or activities that are related to this proposed rule.
This is an excellent way to stay on top of any proposed regulations.
