Request for Comments

Before the government implements changes to various compliance processes, agencies often solicit comments, offering industry opportunities to provide feedback on the impact of proposed rule or process changes. AAFA provides comments on behalf of the industry. We also encourage you to submit comments directly. Here is where we share the requests for comments by agency and by deadline.
