Significant Guidance Documents

On January 18, 2007, the President issued Executive Order 13422, Amendment to Executive Order 12866 for Regulatory Planning and Review.

On that same day, the Acting Administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs within the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) issued a related document, the OMB Bulletin on Agency Good Guidance Practices (the GGP Bulletin). The primary focus of the Executive Order and GGP Bulletin is on improving the way the Federal government does business with respect to guidance documents – by increasing their quality, transparency, accountability, and coordination. Executive Order 13422 and the GGP Bulletin will ensure that guidance documents are of high quality, developed with appropriate agency review and public participation, and readily accessible by the public.

The Drug Enforcement Administration, Office of Diversion Control, has issued guidance documents which are deemed "significant" as defined by Executive Order 13422 and the GGP Bulletin. Those guidance documents are posted on the Diversion Control Program website. In addition, the Office of Diversion Control has also posted many other guidance documents on its website that are useful and helpful to the public and industry, though they do not rise to the level of "significant" guidance documents.
