§2509.16   How will CNCS make guidance documents available to the public?

CNCS shall:

(a) Ensure all effective guidance documents, identified by a unique identifier which includes, at a minimum, the document's title and date of issuance or revision and its RIN, if applicable, are on its website in a single, searchable, indexed database, and available to the public in accordance with §2905.16;

(b) Note on its website that guidance documents lack the force and effect of law, except as authorized by law or as incorporated into a contract; and

(c) Publish on its website where the public can comment electronically on any guidance documents that are subject to the notice-and-comment procedures described in §2509.22 and to submit requests electronically for issuance, reconsideration, modification, or rescission of guidance documents.
