Significant Guidance Documents Subject to Executive Order 12866

In accordance with Executive Order 12866 on Regulatory Planning and Review and the Office of Management and Budget's (OMB) Final Bulletin for Agency Good Guidance Practices (Bulletin), the U.S. Department of Labor maintains this webpage to provide the public with a list of significant guidance documents subject to the Executive Order and Bulletin.

The OMB Bulletin establishes policies and procedures for the development, issuance, and use of significant guidance documents by Executive Branch departments. Specifically, the Bulletin defines significant guidance document, establishes standard elements for significant guidance documents, describes practices for developing and using significant guidance documents by agencies, and requires agencies to enable the public to comment on significant guidance documents or request that they be created, reconsidered, modified or rescinded.
