For example, 04-ORD-216 may be accessed by selecting the year 2004 and scrolling through the decisions for that year until 04-ORD-216 is located. If you wish to review OMDs or ORDs relating to a specific subject, you may search by entering a query (for example, "work sessions," "accident reports," "timely access," or "adequate notice") in the search box that appears at the right-hand top corner of the screen.
