Catalog of Nonregulatory Documents

[27 Pa.B. 3877]

   Pursuant to Governor Ridge's Executive Order 1996-1, agencies under the jurisdiction of the Governor must catalog and publish all non-regulatory documents such as policy statements, guidance manuals, decisions, rules and other written materials that provide compliance related information. The following compilation is the second list of the Administration's non-regulatory documents. This list will be updated and published annually on the first Saturday in August.

   This catalog is being provided to insure that the public has complete access to the information necessary to understand and comply with state regulations.
