Trump Orders Agencies to Repeal Regulations, Reconsider Annual Compliance Costs
The FDA and other government agencies are being ordered to identify two regulations to be eliminated for each new one they propose and to reconsider the industry’s costs of compliance, according to an executive order issued by President Donald Trump.
In addition, agencies cannot propose any new regulation that isn’t currently listed in the Unified Regulatory Agenda without prior White House approval.
The “one in, two out” policy also appears to apply to agency guidance documents. The recently passed 21st Century Cures Act alone requires the agency to produce at least 10 guidance documents.
