1.5 Internal Policies and Procedures

1. Internal policies and procedures that affect only the day - to - day operations of a diocesan department, office or other agency are not considered in this document unless the subject, nature or text of a diocesan norm requires otherwise.

2. No norm of any kind may be established by any authority subject to the diocesan bishop that conflicts with a policy or a procedure that he has issued or approved, unless he has made express provision to the contrary.

3. The publication of any reference manual or similar work for outside distribution by a diocesan department, office, or committee requires the prior review of the chancellor for compliance with diocesan norms and Church law as well as coordination with other diocesan structures. Then, the chancellor is to present it to the diocesan bishop for his determination of approval or other action.
