  • New York Codes, Rules and Regulations (NYCRR)

    New York Department of State's public access to the full text of the New York Codes, Rules and Regulations (NYCRR). The NYCRR primarily contains state agency rules and regulations adopted under the State Administrative Procedure Act (SAPA).

  • Emergency Regulations

    An emergency regulation is a regulation that has been adopted on an expedited, temporary basis because the Office of Children and Family Services (OCFS) has determined that it is necessary for the preservation of the public health, safety or general welfare, and that it would be contrary to the public interest to delay the adoption to comply with the ordinary process for adopting regulatory proposals.

  • Regulations Filed for Public Comment

    A proposed regulation filed for public comment is a new proposed regulation, or an amendment or repeal of an existing regulation, which OCFS is considering adopting on a permanent basis.

  • Consensus Regulations Filed for Public Comment

    A proposed regulation may be filed as a consensus regulation if the agency concludes that the proposed regulation is non-controversial based on its subject matter and its potential effect on regulated parties.

  • Final Adopted Regulations

    A final adopted regulation is a regulation that has been previously proposed and published, for which the public was afforded an opportunity for comment, and which OCFS now has adopted on a permanent basis.

  • Regulatory Agenda

    OCFS is required by the State Administrative Procedure Act (SAPA) to publish twice a year a Regulatory Agenda listing the regulatory changes it is currently considering, but for which no formal proposal filing has yet been commenced.
