Rules

Readoption Process of Administrative Rules

In the 2013 legislative session, the General Assembly enacted Session Law 2013-413.  This law established G.S. § 150B-21.3A, “Periodic Review and Expiration of Existing Rules.”  This statute requires the Rules Review Commission (“Commission”) to establish a process and schedule for those covered agencies to ensure compliance with the law. This schedule and process requires agencies to review all of their active rules codified in the NC Administrative Code (“the Code”) every 10 years.  An overview of the process was created to capture the process and Commission progress since the law was signed on August 23, 2013.

Review and Readoption Process

The Board is taking steps to readopt and make changes to its Administrative Rules.
