Dockets, Electronic Dockets, and Information Centers

Dockets, Electronic Dockets, and Information Centers serve as the repository for information related to particular Agency actions, which include the regulatory and non-regulatory process. When a rulemaking or non-rulemaking action is announced, a docket is established in EPA Dockets (EDOCKET) with an assigned tracking number to accumulate materials throughout the process. Dockets may contain Federal Register documents, a variety of supporting documentation, and public comments.

Contact Information for EPA Headquarters Dockets

EPA has consolidated eight paper docket facilities previously located across the D.C. Metropolitan area to one location in EPA's Federal Triangle offices. The new EPA Docket Center (EPA/DC) includes a Public Reading Room that offers a variety of access tools, security and comfort for members of the public seeking access to hardcopy or electronic public dockets.

The EPA/DC's Public Reading Room will be open between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Eastern Standard Time (EST), Monday through Friday, excluding Federal holidays. Visitors to the Public Reading Room are required to show photographic identification and sign the Agency's visitor log. After processing through the X-ray and magnetometer machines, visitors will be given an EPA/DC badge that must be visible at all times.
