Regulatory Enforcement Manuals

Many agencies have developed documents, often called “enforcement manuals,” that provide agency personnel with a single, authoritative resource for enforcement-related policies. This project addresses whether and when enforcement manuals provide an effective means for agencies to communicate enforcement-related policies internally and publicly. To identify best practices, it examines the extent to which agencies have developed enforcement manuals, identifies legal and practical issues associated with their development and use, compares their contents and form of presentation, and assesses how manuals are disseminated to staff and made publicly available.
