BLM will issue guidance to ensure meaningful consultation with federally recognized tribal governments when assisting in the development of tribal energy resources; when implementing energy tasks which might affect trust resources and treaty rights; when energy tasks might affect areas on public land of concern to tribal communities; or when developing energy related regulatory policies on matters that significantly or uniquely affect tribal communities.

The BLM held a Trust Responsibility Workshop in September or October 2003 to promulgate field guidance.
