AGENCY
: Office of Workers’
Compensation Programs, Labor.
ACTION
: Withdrawal of notice of
proposed rulemaking.
SUMMARY
: On December 14, 2020, the
Office of Workers’ Compensation
Programs (OWCP) published a notice of
proposed rulemaking in the Federal
Register proposing to revise regulations
governing electronic filing and
settlements, and establishing new
procedures for assessing and
adjudicating penalties under the
Longshore and Harbor Workers’
Compensation Act (LHWCA). Consistent
with the Presidential directive as
expressed in the memorandum of
January 20, 2021, from the Assistant to
the President and Chief of Staff, entitled
‘‘Regulatory Freeze Pending Review,’’
OWCP is withdrawing the notice of
proposed rulemaking.
DATES
: As of February 9, 2021, the
notice of proposed rulemaking
published at 85 FR 80698 on December
14, 2020, is withdrawn.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION
: On
December 14, 2020, OWCP published a
notice of proposed rulemaking entitled
Longshore and Harbor Workers’
Compensation Act: Electronic Filing,
Settlement, and Civil Money Penalty
Procedures, 85 FR 80698. The proposed
rule would revise the LHWCA
regulations governing electronic filing
and settlements, and establish new
procedures for assessing and
adjudicating penalties under the
LHWCA. The comment period for the
rule expires on February 12, 2021.
OWCP simultaneously published a
companion direct final rule. See 85 FR
80601 (Dec. 14, 2020).
A new administration assumed office
on January 20, 2021. On that same date,
the Assistant to the President and Chief
of Staff issued a memorandum entitled
‘‘Regulatory Freeze Pending Review’’ to
the Heads of Executive Departments and
Agencies. 86 FR 7424 (Jan. 28, 2021).
The purpose of the memorandum was
‘‘to ensure that the President’s
appointees or designees have the
opportunity to review any new or
pending rules.’’ Id. The memorandum
directs agencies to consider pausing or
delaying certain regulatory actions for
the purpose of reviewing questions of
fact, law, and policy raised therein.
OWCP believes that the most efficient
way to implement the memorandum in
this instance is to withdraw the notice
of proposed rulemaking. The proposed
rule is at an early stage and the
comment period is still running. Thus,
the administrative record has not yet
been fully developed. Withdrawing the
proposed rule will give the new
administration adequate time to review
the rule and determine the approach it
wants to take. Once that review is
complete, OWCP plans to issue a new
proposed rule and offer the public an
opportunity to comment on the topics
addressed at that time. OWCP is
simultaneously withdrawing the
companion direct final rule.
Accordingly, the notice of proposed
rulemaking published in the Federal
Register on December 14, 2020 (85 FR
80698) is withdrawn as of February 9,
2021.
