Periodic Review of Existing Rules

N.C. General Statute §150B-21.3A, adopted in 2013, requires state agencies and commissions to review existing rules every 10 years. An initial review will be completed during the next five years according to the schedule set forth by the N.C. Rules Review Commission (RRC), and thereafter rules will be reviewed on a 10-year review cycle. Rules enforced by the Division of Health Service Regulation (DHSR), including those of the Commissions supported by DHSR (N.C. Medical Care Commission and the N.C. Radiation Protection Commission) are included in this new requirement and have been scheduled by the RRC (PDF, 18 KB).

As rule reviews are completed in accordance with the schedule, they will become available for public comment and links will be available on this web page.
