On the Record

"On the record" is a magical phrase in the following court case:

"Although Section 554 specifies that the governing statute must satisfy the 'on the record' requirement, those three magic words need not appear for a court to determine that formal hearings are required."
--City of W. Chicago, Ill. v. U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Comm’n
701 F.2d 632, 641 (7th Cir. 1983)

(From the book Sleight of (Learned) Hand.)
