What is a general notice?

A general notice is any announcement that an agency wishes to make to registered public users of the Town Hall and for publication in the Virginia Register. Basically, there must be some kind of relationship between a general notice and a regulation.
Examples of general notices include (1) announcing the release of a new guidance document that interprets some provision of a regulation, or (2) advising persons that a regulation is being amended through an exempt process and that no public hearing will be held.
A general notice is not appropriate for announcing (1) details relating to meetings or (2) the publication in the Virginia Register of a regulatory stage, e.g., NOIRA, proposed, or final stage, because the Town Hall automatically sends email notification of these events.
