Submit Guidelines

NGC reaches a large audience within the United States and abroad, offering developers an effective vehicle for the dissemination of guidelines that meet the NGC Inclusion Criteria. Guideline submissions accepted for inclusion are identified on the Guidelines In Progress page. When guideline summaries are published to the NGC Web site, they are announced in our New This Week. To receive notification when new information is available including publication of your organization’s guidelines, subscribe to the New This Week Weekly E-mail. To learn more about the submission process, view the Detailed Description.
