The draft version of division standards and guidelines shall be forwarded to the Executive Office. The draft version of division standards and guidelines shall be forwarded to the Executive Office for publication in The APA Monitor providing notice of a 90-day comment period and Instructions for receipt of comments. All standards and guidelines shall be forwarded to the Executive Office for legal review.
If the legal review reveals undue risks to APA, a Division shall not promulgate such standard or guideline until the CEO determines that a subsequent draft does not expose APA to undue legal risk. The legal review will be conducted in a timely manner.
