RMA Significant Guidance Documents

To increase the quality and transparency of agency guidance practices and to comply with OMB's "Final Bulletin for Agency Good Guidance Practices" published in the Federal Register (Jan 25, 2007) (72 FR 3432–3440), RMA lists its significant guidance documents below. "Guidance document" means an agency statement of general applicability and future effect, other than a regulatory action, that sets forth a policy on a statutory, regulatory or technical issue or an interpretation of a statutory or regulatory issue. Discussion of this definition and various guidance documents and other background information is available at:
