Rules/Regulatory
Proposed and Recently Adopted Rules

The "Proposed" section below contains copies of rules and rulemaking filing documents related to rules that DES has proposed but has not yet adopted. The date and time of the public hearing and the deadline for filing public comment is listed for each proposed rule, as is a link to the email for the staff contact for the rulemaking. Unless otherwise specifed, all rulemaking hearings are held at the DES offices at 29 Hazen Drive, Concord. Under 2011 amendments to RSA 541-A, an agency may choose to prepare and seek public comment on a Draft Final Proposal prior to filing a Final Proposal for review by the Joint Legislative Committee on Administrative Rules ("JLCAR"). If a Draft Final Proposal is prepared, it will be posted on this page with the date and time of the public hearing if one has been scheduled and the deadline for submission of written comments. Final Proposed rules are posted once the rule has been filed for review by the JLCAR.

The "Recently Adopted" section below contains copies of rules that DES has adopted but not yet certified. Until the certified text is available, the adopted text is the official text of the rules. For rulemakings that amend only a portion of a set of existing rules, the amendments posted here must be read in conjunction with the remaining rules (available at the DES Certified Rules page).

 

All documents have been saved in Adobe Acrobat Reader Adobe Acrobat Reader Symbolformat.

SPECIAL NOTE FOR COUNCIL AND BOARD RULES: New Hampshire has four environmental councils and two environmental boards.

Such inclusion on this page shall not be construed as indicating that DES has any control over the content of the rules.

 
Recently Adopted:
This section contains copies of rules that have been adopted by the Department but for which the certified text is not yet available. Until the certified text is available, this is the official text of the rules. Once the certified text is available, the certified text is the official version of the rules and will be available on the DES Certified Rules page.
