On December 1 2015, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of Civil Rights (OCR) released a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM), a modification to EPA’s nondiscrimination regulation, allowing EPA to more strategically manage its administrative complaint docket by tailoring the appropriate resolution path to each complaint based on the unique factual pattern and legal issues presented and by clarifying EPA’s authority to conduct proactive compliance reviews and collect critical compliance data. The proposed changes bring the office’s regulation into conformance with those of more than twenty other federal agencies.
