Vatican's disciplinary watchdog the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, Cardinal William Levada, had announced in November 2010 that the document was being prepared.
The letter would include "directives" relating to the "reception of victims", working with civil authorities, protecting children and the training of future priests, Levada said.
The Vatican is under pressure to produce the guidelines at the request of a US civil court which is examining the Holy See's role as "employer" in the case of a priest accused of child sex abuse.
