Facility management informed the controllers that 2 new approachs to our primary airport were not to be used as we had not been briefed and our maps do not depict said approachs. These approachs do not overlay current approachs; have new fixes and new missed approach procedures. RNAV (GPS) 32. RNAV (GPS) 14. I just checked and discovered these approachs became effective 15 days earlier. This is the second time in the last yr that new approachs have gone into effect within our airspace and the facility was not notified beforehand so that the controllers could be properly briefed.
