Perm Has Passed OMB Review

The Office of Management and Budget (OMB), which oversees regulatory policies for the Executive Branch, completed its review of the final PERM rule on Friday, December 10, 2004. This rule had been pending at the OMB since February 23, 2004. Upon completion of the final rule, the rule is forwarded for publication in the Federal Register, a process which can be as quick as a day, or can take several weeks. In light of the lengthy period during which the rule was pending at OMB, it is anticipated that publication in the Federal Register will be prompt.

When PERM is published at the Federal Register, it will be effective after a period of time. According to the last Memo from the DOL, this period of time could be about 60 days. As soon as the PERM is put in effective, all the new Labor Certificate cases will be processed under the new rules of PERM. Our firm will have the PERM rule published as soon as it's open to public.
