A notice of proposed rulemaking or NPRM is issued by law when a U.S government regulatory agency wishes to add, remove, or change a regulation. The FAA, FCC, NTIA, and EPA are examples of agencies which regularly do this, as part of the due process which executive agencies are bound to follow. The NPRM typically gives 60 days for public comment from any and all interested parties, and an additional 30 days for reply comments. Original comments may still be filed in the reply comments window.
