Mission and Functions

The Department of Defense (DoD) Regulatory Program and the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD) Federal Register Program (Non-Acquisition) are administered by the Information Management Division (IMD), Executive Services Directorate, Washington Headquarters Services. IMD establishes policies and procedures for the DoD Regulatory and OSD Federal Register Programs, including responsibilities for reviewing and approving rule and notice requirements. Rules are required by law, are necessary to interpret the law, or are made necessary by compelling public need, such as material failures of private markets to protect or improve the health and safety of the public, the environment, or the well-being of the American people. Rules apply to and have legal affect on the public.  Notices announce information of public interest, such as meetings or a statement of availability.

This web site provides a listing of DoD rules and guidance for processing rules and notices for publication in the Federal Register and codification in the Code of Federal Regulations.
