NL 10630.110 Which Components Must Clear and Approve My Notice Language?

There are certain mandatory components that must review and clear any new or revised notice language.

Other components may also have an interest or concern with the new or revised notice language. Since the development and approval of new or revised language is a collaborative effort, you should share the notice clearance package with all pertinent agency components.

Send your notice clearance packages to the component control mailbox.
