Appeal publication policy

OHA’s policy on publishing final appeal decisions.

It is OHA’s policy to publish final decisions, which include the names of the parties appearing before OHA. This policy is consistent with the best practices of the Open Government Act, which promotes transparency, the presumption of openness, and proactive disclosures.

OHA decisions are normally published without redactions on OHA’s website within a few days of issuance. A party may request the public decision be redacted by contacting OHA promptly once an appeal is filed and requesting a protective order. For information on protective orders and OHA’s treatment of confidential information, see 13 C.F.R. § 134.205.
