The Department of Labor provides this guidance search tool as a single, searchable location where users may search for guidance issued by any of the Department’s agencies, including significant guidance documents under Executive Order 12866. Individual guidance documents are maintained on the various agency websites, and if you know what agency you are looking for, you may also find guidance by navigating directly to that agency’s website. The Code of Federal Regulations and the Federal Register, which are not maintained by the Department, also include some of the Department’s interpretations of law and similar material.
OMB’s Final Bulletin for Agency Good Guidance Practices establishes policies and procedures for the development, issuance, and use of significant guidance documents by Executive Branch departments, including requiring that agencies enable the public to request that significant guidance documents be created, reconsidered, modified or rescinded. To petition for a significant guidance document to be created, modified, reconsidered, or rescinded, email the Department of Labor. Petitions should identify the specific guidance document by name and include your reason(s) for the request.
