DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE

Office of the Secretary

32 CFR Part 45

[Docket ID: DOD-2017-OS-0044]
RIN 0790-AJ88


Certificate of Release or Discharge From Active Duty (DD Form 
214/5 Series)

AGENCY: Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Personnel and 
Readiness, Department of Defense.

ACTION: Final rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This final rule removes the DoD's regulation concerning the 
certificate of release or discharge from active duty (Department of 
Defense Form (DD Form) 214/5 Series). DoD has determined that the rule 
has no impact on the general public; rather, the rule focuses on 
internal DoD management and personnel matters. Therefore, this part is 
unnecessary and can be removed from the CFR.

DATES: This rule is effective on December 13, 2017.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Kent Bauer, 703-693-4204.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: It has been determined that publication of 
this CFR part removal rule for public comment is unnecessary because it 
removes DoD internal policies and procedures that are publicly 
available on the Department's issuance website.
    DoD internal guidance concerning the Certificate of Release or 
Discharge from Active Duty (DD Form 214/5 Series) will continue to be 
published in DoD Instruction 1336.01 and made available at http://www.esd.whs.mil/Portals/54/Documents/DD/issuances/dodi/133601p.pdf. DoD 
Instruction 1336.01 will be the authorizing document for the DD Form 
214/5 Series.
    Repealing this part will reduce unnecessary Federal regulation and 
associated administrative costs. Because the rule focuses on internal 
DoD management and personnel matters, however, its repeal will not 
result in a cost savings for the public.
