NIOSH Public Docket
When an agency of the federal government develops a rule, a formal record of that process is kept. The record, called a “docket,” includes copies of all public comments the agency received in developing the rule, all references cited in the rule, and other relevant information.
The NIOSH Docket is a repository of policy products (documents, policy responses, testimony, and other types of NIOSH policy statements) and related materials. Any information submitted to the NIOSH Docket is considered public information. The docket includes:
- Federal Register notices
- Comments submitted in response to NIOSH requests for information
- Transcripts of public meetings
- External peer review comments
- Reports, studies, and other reference material submitted in response to the development of NIOSH policy products.
