These standards will help you assess and improve the quality of your agency's written policy and other advice, and whether it is fit for purpose. The advice may be for a minister, Cabinet or other decision-makers, and may be jointly provided with other agencies.
Depending on the issue and the nature of the advice the paper provides, sometimes not all of the standards will be applicable. Oral advice should also meet the spirit of these standards, but not necessarily their detail.
