Section 2.2-4103.1 of the Code of Virginia requires annual publication in the Virginia Register of guidance document lists from state agencies. A guidance document is defined as "...any document developed by a state agency or staff that provides information or guidance of general applicability to the staff or public to interpret or implement statutes or the agency's rules or regulations..." Agencies are required to maintain a complete, current list of all guidance documents and make the full text of such documents available to the public.

This information is collected and published once each year. Please contact the appropriate agency directly for the most up-to-date information. Questions concerning documents or requests for copies of documents should be directed to the contact person listed by the agency.
