Indeed, being a "policy" it might be considered as being either an OPA or an EFE. However, the human resource policy relates directly to the organization as other aspects like culture, structures, systems and usually are out of control of project teams.
It might be considered that such policy is derived from a industry standard or a public regulation aiming to govern all business operations within organization regardless of being part of projects or not. A policy, as other EFE components like systems and structures, is more stable than OPA elements which are subject of more frequently updates based on lessons learned and historical information.

Hi,
Organizational Process Assets would include anything the organization has acquired that you can use in the management of the project. They include formal and informal plans, policies, procedures, and guidelines.organizations have developed a range of templates, contracts, registers, and assessment tools to assist the management of their projects.

Enterprise Environment Factors (EEFs) include all policies, practices, procedures, and legislations that exist both inside and outside of the organization that will impact the way you manage a project.Enterprise environment factors are so important that they can enhance or reduce the project management options and positively or negatively impact the project success.
That's why HR Policies are part of EEFs not OPA.

I agree with Shadav and Cristin. There is a difference between these two concepts. You better refer to their definition in PMBOK.

All policies such as HR Policy, HSE Policy, and other much more are clearly part of OPA. Only HR policies using in following two processes are part of EEF:
1) Develop Team
2) Manage Team

Since for this two processes policies are followed as input (EEF).

Policy outside project team control is EEF/ constraint.
Policy under control of project team is OPA.

Hi,
Enterprise Environment Factors (EEFs) include all policies, practices, procedures, and legislations that exist both inside and outside of the organization that will impact the way you manage a project. For example - Organizational culture, processes, & infrastructure,
Product standards ,Quality standards ,Government standards ,Codes of conduct ,Staffing guidelines etc.

Organizational Process Assets would include anything the organization has acquired that you can use in the management of the project. They include formal and informal plans, policies, procedures, and guidelines. for example -Standardized guidelines ,Proposal evaluation criteria ,Work breakdown structure templates ,Project schedule network diagram templates ,Risk templates etc.
