This site contains the Board's decisions. All decisions are full-text searchable from the Search box at the top of every page. New decisions are typically added to this website on Friday. Indexing, a process which makes a decision available to the search engine, is performed daily. Despite this frequency, it is possible that the search engine will fail to identify a decision even though it has been posted. If you are seeking a decision that was issued recently and is not listed in your search results, please double-check the most recent list of decisions that corresponds to the category of the decision you are seeking.
Decisions and other documents on the following pages are available in Adobe Acrobat (PDF) format. They may be searched, displayed, printed, and downloaded.
