Rulemaking and Review

Monitor and take part in state agency rule making.

A “rule” is a formal, written statement of law that has been established by a state agency under the authority delegated to the agency by statute. Administrative rules, once adopted, have the force of law and must be periodically reviewed. The Register of Ohio is an electronic publication that functions as a gazette to which members of the public may readily resort for notice of and information about rule-making processes.

RuleWatch Ohio provides a way to keep track of rules and regulations by email alerts.

Ohio's Common Sense Initiative (CSI) creates a regulatory framework that promotes economic development, is transparent and responsive to regulated businesses, makes compliance as easy as possible, and provides predictability for businesses.
