EPA Records Schedule 332

Status: (to be superseded) Final, 03/31/2011

Title: Regulatory Impact Analyses Under Executive Order 12866

Program: All Programs

Applicability: Headquarters

Function: 306-114 - Regulatory Creation

NARA Disposal Authority:

This schedule authorizes the disposition of the record copy in any media (media neutral), excluding any records already in electronic form. Records designated for permanent retention must be transferred to the National Archives in accordance with NARA standards at the time of transfer.


Records consist of reports on the regulatory impact of Agency proposed rules, regulations and statutes. Information used to assess the costs and benefits of regulations is drawn primarily from existing information collections such as: national surveys (eg., Community Water Supply Survey, National Urban Pesticide Applicator Survey), state studies, U.S. Geologic Survey studies, EPA databases, and other sources.

Disposition Instructions:

Item a(1): Record copy - Nonelectronic

Item a(2): Record copy - Electronic

Item a(3): Electronic copy of records transferred to the National Archives


Copies incorporated into other files (e.g., EPA 150 for dockets) are to be retained according to the disposition instructions for the records they support.

Reasons for Disposition:

The disposition instructions have been rewritten as media neutral to allow for maintaining the record copy in EPA's electronic recordkeeping system. The retention is unchanged.

The following changes were made in the 02/29/2008 version:

Item b for other copies deleted as nonrecords in 11/02/2006 version.

Item c for electronic copies created with word processing and electronic mail applications deleted 08/18/2006 pursuant to NARA Bulletin 2006-04.
