ATC preferred sids/stars

So I got a question,

Is It ATIS that says what is the preferred sids/stars are or is it approach?

That would be ATIS.

Got it thanks. For some reason I thought it was approach.

The ATIS would specify the recommended STARs, but they are typically picked out by an approach controller that tells the person who controls the ATIS to put it in there.

And if you look at the SIDS/STARS in the airport menu thing you can see the preferred ones there too
