This training program covers the final rule issued on January 4, 2005 revising 49 CFR Part 24. This section of the Code of Federal Regulations contains the unified rule implementing the URA. The final rule is effective on February 3, 2005.
The final rule issued in January was effective in 30 days, on February 3, 2005. Since most everything in the final rule had been included in the Notice of Proposed Rule Making (NPRM) issued December 17, 2003 the 30-day period was deemed sufficient notice considering the changes were regulatory and had been under discussion for a full year.
