CHAPTER 2 OFFICIAL PUBLICATIONS AND DIRECTIVES Using  publications  and  directives  are  part of  the  daily  routine  of  any  Navy  office.  The efficiency  of  the  office  depends  on  how  well this  is  done.  This  makes  it  important  for  you to recognize various publications,   to understand   their   contents,   and   how   to   stow and  retrieve  them  as  they  are  needed.  As stated  before,  you  can’t  remember  everything; the trick is to know where to find information. In  this  chapter  we  will  tell  you  about  the publications  you  will  need  to  do  your  job  as a   Yeoman   (YN)   responsible   for   managing   a great  deal  of  information  and  providing  it  to a  great  number  of  people. GENERAL    REGULATORY PUBLICATIONS The Constitution  of  the  United  States,  the treaties   this   Nation   enters   into,   and   laws passed   by   the   Congress   comprise   the fundamental  law  governing  the  Navy.  These, however,  give  only  the  broad  outlines.  For express   directions   setting   forth   procedures under   the   law, the   Navy   has   various publications   and   official   directives. The principal general regulations, directives,  orders,  and  instructions  issued  for the   guidance   of   persons   throughout   the Department  of  the  Navy  (DON)  are  found  in the   following   sources. UNITED   STATES   NAVY REGULATIONS,   1990 Foremost   in   general   importance   among official  publications  is  the  United  States  Navy Regulations,   1990   (Navy   Regs). This regulatory  document  of  the  DON  states  policy as  to  the  duties,  responsibilities,  authority, distinctions, and   relationships   of   various commands,   officials,   and   individuals.   It outlines  the  organizational  structure  of  the 2-1 DON  and  issues  the  principles  and  policies  by which  the  Navy  is  governed.  The  chapters  set forth,  among  other  things,  the  responsibility, purpose,   authority,   and   relationship   of   each bureau  and  office  of  the  Navy  Department; headquarters   organizations;   and   the   senior executives  (military  and  civilian)  of  the  DON. The  Chief  of  Naval  Operations  (CNO)  is responsible   for   making   changes   to   N a vy Regulations,  and  the  changes  are  approved  by the  Secretary  of  the  Navy.  It  is  published  in loose-leaf   form   and   kept   in   an   adjustable binder  so  that  changes  may  be  inserted  as necessary. STANDARD   ORGANIZATION   AND REGULATIONS  OF  THE  U.S.  NAVY The Standard Organization and Regulations   of   the   U.S.   Navy   is   issued   as OPNAVINST   3120.32   by   the   CNO.   This publication  issues  regulations  and  guidance governing  the  conduct  of  all  members  of  the U.S.   Navy.   These   regulations   use   two   types of   print: the   material   in   uppercase   is regulatory,  and  the  material  printed  in  plain type   is   for   the   guidance   of   commanders, commanding   officers   (COs),   and   officers   in charge. These  regulations  apply  to  each member  of  the  Navy  individually.  Violation  of any   provision of   these   regulations   is punishable  under  the  Uniform   Code   of Military  Justice  (UCMJ). As  a  YN,  you  should  be  generally  familiar with  the  entire  publication  but  you  will  want to  be  particularly  familiar  with  chapter  3, “The Unit   Organization”;   chapter   5, “Regulations”;   chapter   6,   “Unit   Bills”;   and chapter   10,   “Unit   Directives   System.”   You will  refer  frequently  to  this  publication  during the   course   of   everyday   activities. This  is especially  true  if  you  are  serving  aboard  ship.
