Question # 908

908. Executive Order 13148 requires federal agencies to comply with EPCRA section 313 and section 6607 of PPA. What is a “federal agency?”
“Federal agency” is equivalent to an “Executive agency” as defined in 5 USC 105. Title 5 USC 105 defines an “Executive agency” as “an Executive department [including military departments under the auspices of the Department of Defense], a Government corporation and an independent establishment.” Examples of federal agencies are the Department of Defense (DOD), the Department of Interior (DOI), the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA), and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).
