Title 392 Guidance Document - Guidance documents are written agency statements which lack the force of law but provide information or direction of general application to the public to interpret or implement statutes or agency rules or regulations.  A guidance document does not give rise to any legal right or duty and should not be treated as authority for any standard requirement, or policy.  These documents are published by DHHS in accordance with Neb. Rev. Stat. § 84-901.
