ORDER DISMISSING PETITION WITHOUT PREJUDICE
 
*1 On February 26, 2016, Wolverine World Wide, Inc. (Petitioner) filed the instant petition for reconsideration of the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) Final Rule 3245-AG50, published at 81 Fed. Reg. 4469 (Jan. 26, 2016), in which SBA set the size standard for North American Industry Classification System code 316210, Footwear Manufacturing, at 1,000 employees.
*1 Petitioner maintains that SBA's Office of Hearings and Appeals (OHA) has jurisdiction over this matter because section 869 of the 2016 National Defense Authorization Act, codified at 15 U.S.C. § 632(a)(9), expanded OHA's jurisdiction to include petitions for reconsideration of size standards. However, OHA has not yet promulgated the procedural regulations necessary to adjudicate such petitions. Accordingly, I conclude I must DISMISS the instant petition WITHOUT PREJUDICE. Petitioner may refile the matter within 30 days after OHA has published the necessary procedural regulations in 13 C.F.R. Part 134 to administer these petitions.
