Publication Management

NWCG publications are the primary vehicle by which NWCG standards are transmitted. Publications include standards, guides, job aids, position taskbooks, training curricula, and other documents. These publications are distributed through hardcopy print, web pages, mobile device applications, and other digital media.

The committees and subgroups responsible for developing NWCG standards manage the publication cycle, which includes needs assessment, development, issuance, maintenance, evaluation, and revision.

All NWCG publications are approved by the Executive Board.
