Regulation Basics

Regulations are administrative rules issued by governmental agencies at the federal, state, county and municipal levels. Regulations have the force of law because they are created and adopted under authority granted by statutes.

To create a binding regulation, an agency typically issues a proposed regulation, holds public hearings, and accepts public comment before ultimately issuing a binding final regulation.
