NCRA ROUGH DRAFTS GUIDELINES: Summary of NCRA guidelines on providing rough drafts
An uncertified rough draft should not include a completed title page, appearance page, certificate page, any mention of the swearing in of a witness by name, footer with firm name or reporter name or CSR #.
An uncertified draft transcript should include a header or footer on each page stating "uncertified draft transcript only." A brief disclaimer may be included in the body of the text occasionally. Uncertified draft transcripts may be provided in condensed format only. Page numbers may be included.
[I know of reporters who have an include/block file inserted in the body of the text of the rough every ten lines that reads “uncertified rough draft – do not cite.” That has to be manually deleted or pulled before the final is sent. For page numbers, some reporters use R-1, R-2, or some other form to differentiate.]
A disclaimer and/or order form, such as the one attached, should be transmitted as a cover sheet or cover sheets with each uncertified draft transcript stating that the uncertified draft transcript cannot be quoted for any purpose and may not be filed with any court. A copy of the signed disclaimer and/or order form should be retained by the court reporter.
Where possible, all untranslated steno strokes and conflicts should be resolved before an uncertified draft transcript is provided to any party.

To sum up:
Clean up untranslates
No title page, no appearances, no certificate page, no sworn blurb
No reporting firm info, reporter name, or CSR number
Include disclaimer
