The Office of General Counsel plays a key role in all rulemaking and other public proceedings conducted by DOE. Robust public participation is essential to the rulemaking process. This participation provides DOE the benefit of the expertise from those who will be most affected by DOE’s proposed actions. It also offers the public a transparent, hands-on way of having its voice heard in the administrative process.

In addition to proposed rules and rulemaking related documents, DOE issues for comment and public notification Requests for Information, Public Meeting Notices, and other similar documents. These publications notify and solicit the public for input on various matters including DOE rules, policies, and procedures.
