Alaska Region Environmental and Socio-Economic Analyses

Many laws and Presidential executive orders impose requirements for environmental and socio-economic analysis on the rulemaking process. Among the most important of these are the National Environmental Policy Act, which requires an analysis of the environmental impacts of regulations, the Regulatory Flexibility Act, which requires an examination of adverse impacts on small entities, and Executive Order 12866, which requires an analysis of the costs and benefits of regulations. This page provides access to important statutes and executive orders, and to analyses conducted pursuant to these for management actions in the EEZ off of Alaska.
