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. An emergency regulation is effective immediately when it is filed with the Department of State. An initial emergency filing expires in 90 days. Emergency regulations may be re-adopted. A re-adoption is effective for 60 days from date of filing.
