Small Entities and Rulemaking

Section 610 Reviews

Section 610 of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA) requires that an agency review each rule that has or will have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities (SISNOSE) within ten years of publication of the final rule. Pursuant to Section 610 of the RFA, EPA initiates a Section 610 review in order to determine if the provisions of a rule that are related to small entities should be continued without change, rescinded, or amended to minimize adverse economic impacts on small entities. The table below lists Section 610 reviews in chronological order from the date they were begun or may begin. When EPA begins a retrospective review under Section 610, we announce it in the Federal Register. The conclusion of a review is also announced in the Federal Register. The first two columns of the table below provide the citation and link for the appropriate Federal Register notice. Where available, use the Regulation Identifier Number (RIN) after each citation to locate the appropriate entry. The third column lists the title of the rule that was reviewed. If the same rule also involved a Small Business Advocacy Review (SBAR) Panel, you will be able to click on the title to access more information. If the projected start date of a review contains an asterisk (*), that rule is subject to more than one retrospective review requirement (e.g., a Safe Drinking Water Act 6-year review or a Clean Air Act risk and technology review) and multiple retrospective reviews may be coordinated whenever practicable.
