DoD Regulatory Program

Mission and Functions

The Department of Defense (DoD) Regulatory Program is administered by the Office of the Director of Administration and Management, Directorate for Oversight and Compliance, Regulatory and Advisory Committee Division (RAACD). The RAACD establishes policies and procedures for the DoD Regulatory Program, including responsibilities for reviewing and approving rule and notice requirements. Rules are required by 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 effect 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.
