The Hague Standards (Subpart F of 22 CFR Part 96) are organized in a three-tier structure: chapter, section, and subsection. This structure contains increasing levels of specificity as one moves from the chapter to the section to the sub-section.

Chapter:
The chapter provides a title that represents an aspect of management or service delivery. It is comprised of a group of sections.

Section:
The section represents a numbered section of the regulations. It is comprised of a group of sub-sections and represents an overall theme for the group of standards.

Sub-section:
The sub-section is the most measurable, specific standard for which the adoption service provider is required to demonstrate its degree of compliance. Sub-sections are represented by a letter within each section of the regulations. Some sub-sections contain multiple requirements or elements that specify the details of a particular practice.

In the following example, the chapter is Licensing and Corporate Governance, the section is 96.30, and the sub-section is 96.30 (c).
