On February 11, 1997, service on RIPS was suspended due to a hardware
failure which has rendered the system inoperable. All docketed and rulemaking data
(images and histories) stored on RIPS will not be available until service has been
restored. Any urgent request for information will be addressed on a case-by-case
basis by contacting the Reference Operations Division located at 1919 M Street, N.W.,
room 239, (202) 418-0270. Duplicates of current filings are available for viewing in
room 230. The RIPS operation will resume service once the repairs have been
completed and the system fully tested.
We apologize for any inconvenience caused by this interruption of service.
For further information you may contact Patricia Rawlings at (202) 418-0294.
