Lotsawa House's blub on the text reads as follows:
This popular canonical work, which is included in the Kangyur (Tōh. 591), teaches the incantation (dhāraṇī) and rituals associated with the goddess Sitātapatrā, who is renowned for her power to avert or repel all types of spirits, demons, obstacles, misfortune and disease and is thus invoked by many Tibetan Buddhists on a daily basis.

Tōh. 591, according to 84000.co is contained in the Tantra section, which would indicate to me that transmission would be required for it.

It is classified as a Dharani, why don't you email Lotsawa themselves to ask and find out.... :namaste:
