In accordance with President Trump's directive from January 20, 2017 entitled "Regulatory Freeze Pending Review," this Final Rule, initially effective February 6, 2017, is delayed until March 21, 2017. This delay allows the Trump Administration time to review the regulatory actions taken by the previous Administration not yet in effect.
