PPN Search Engine is Live

The DOB publishes official Policy and Procedure notices with consistency, and over the years these notices add up. Now, with a new search engine, finding old PPNs is getting easier.

The DOB has made its database of PPNs available through its new search page. Simply enter a keyword, and you can search through PPNs going back to 1987.

The search is easy and intuitive, and there’s data for LPPN, APPN, OPPN and TPPN notices.
