CRE Interactive Public Docket Service

CRE has developed the Interactive Public Docket (IPD) as a way of publicizing and obtaining feedback on a variety of important regulatory issues. The goals of the IPD are to improve the federal regulatory process and to encourage sound regulatory policy by increasing public participation and analysis.

CRE Interactive Public Dockets allow for ongoing debate of regulatory issues, even after the close of official public comment periods, and with the click of a button, regulators can review the continuing policy discussion. The IPD process works as follows.

  • CRE develops background and other analytical materials and invites responses from interested stakeholders, federal officials, and the public.
  • CRE has the ability to publicize key issues through strategically placed links on a wide range of relevant websites.
  • IPD comments received are placed on the CRE Website and are ultimately analyzed in a manner similar to those reported on in the Federal Register.
  • The CRE "docket" on the issue in question can then be submitted to the agency for review.

CRE welcomes suggestions for future topics for coverage through the Interactive Public Docket.
