Procedures for the Issuance of Guidance Documents (Draft)
Jul. 1, 2020
DOE proposes to establish procedures for the issuance of DOE guidance documents in accordance with Executive Order 13891-Promoting the Rule of Law Through Improved Agency Guidance Documents dated 9 October 2019. The proposed rule would establish internal agency requirements for the contents of guidance documents, and procedures for providing notice of, and soliciting public comment on, certain guidance documents. The proposed rule would also establish procedures for the public to petition DOE to modify or withdraw guidance documents. This NOPR also resolves a petition for rulemaking submitted by the New Civil Liberties Alliance (NCLA) and responds to comments submitted on that petition. DOE will accept comments regarding this NOPR on or before 31 July 2020. POC is Mr. Matthew Ring, DOE, Office of the General Counsel, Forrestal Building, GC-33, 1000 Independence Avenue SW, Washington, DC 20585, Tel: (202) 586-2555, Email: Guidance@hq.doe.gov.
