SGIA Attends EPA Stakeholder Meeting on Executive Order 13777

On April 24, 2017 SGIA attended a stakeholder meeting held by the Environmental Protection Agency. The purpose of this meeting was to allow the public to comment on rules that should be repealed, replaced, or modified as a result of Executive Order 13777: Enforcing the Regulatory Reform Agenda. President Trump issued Executive Order 13777 on February 24, 2017. This EO directs all agency heads to designate an agency official as its Regulatory Reform Officer (RRO), who will oversee regulatory reform initiatives and policies to ensure that agencies effectively carry out regulatory reforms. This follows Executive Order 13771, signed by President Trump on January 30, 2017, which directs agencies to repeal two existing regulations for every new regulation, and to do so in such a way that the total cost of regulations does not increase. The EPA invited stakeholders from all industries to provide input on the implementation of these orders. Speakers were given the chance to comment on regulations that they considered burdensome, as well as regulations that they believed should not be repealed or modified. SGIA’s VP of Government & Business Information, Marci Kinter, addressed rules that are burdensome for the printing industry, such as national emissions standards and the spill prevention, control and countermeasure rule. SGIA will continue to monitor these important policy issues. Sign up to receive the most up-to-date regulatory and legislative information about specialty imaging.
