Disclaimer:

The official texts of all New Hampshire state agency certified administrative rules are maintained by the Office of Legislative Services, Administrative Rules office. DES maintains its own copies of certified rules on this page for the convenience of interested persons. These copies may differ in appearance from the official texts of the rule, but are the same in substance. While DES has taken care to ensure the accuracy of these files, DES is not responsible for errors which may occur during the electronic downloading of files that alter the meaning or content of those files. DES also recognizes that errors can occur even when care is taken, and requests anyone who believes a posted rule or other document contains an error to contact the DES Legal Unit at Legal@des.nh.gov.

DES regular administrative rules adopted prior to 2012 are valid for 8 years from their effective date; regular administrative rules adopted in 2012 and beyond are valid for 10 years. Agencies are authorized under RSA 541-A to initiate a rulemaking to amend, repeal, or readopt a rule (with or without amendment) at any time. Also, RSA 541-A:14-a, I, now provides that rules which are proposed to be readopted or readopted with amendment which otherwise would expire will not expire for the duration of the rulemaking proceeding (through the effective date of the new rules) if the Rulemaking Notice and Initial Proposal are filed prior to the expiration date. Rules listed on this page are the certified rules, which may continue in effect pursuant to RSA 541-A:14-a if a rulemaking proceeding is initiated as noted. Rules marked with a red arrow (red arrow) are the subject of a rulemaking proceeding; the red arrow links to the DES Proposed and Recently Adopted Administrative Rules page. If existing rules are amended, once the amendments are adopted and prior to the consolidated rules being recertified the rules on this page must be read in conjunction with the adopted amendments.

Paper copies of DES rules may purchased from the DES Public Information Center, which can be contacted at (603) 271-2975 or info@des.nh.gov. In the prices listed below, the first figure is the price of the document and the second is shipping and handling (S/H). Where a price is listed for a Table of Contents and not for individual chapters, the price is for a complete set of the rules and individual rules are not separately available for purchase. There is no charge, however, to download or print the individual PDFs.

Council & Board Rules

SPECIAL DISCLAIMER FOR COUNCIL AND BOARD RULES: New Hampshire has four environmental councils and two environmental boards, as listed below. Each council and board has its own enabling legislation and so is separate and distinct from each other council and board. The councils and boards are also separate and distinct from the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services. DES posts the certified rules of the councils and boards on this page as a service to the councils and boards and as part of the administrative support DES is required by law to provide. Such inclusion on this page shall not be construed as indicating that DES has any control over the content of the rules.

The official texts of all New Hampshire state agency certified administrative rules are maintained by the Office of Legislative Services, Administrative Rules office. The copies posted here may differ in appearance from the official texts of the rule, but are the same in substance. While DES has taken care to ensure the accuracy of these files, DES is not responsible for errors which may occur during the electronic downloading of files that alter the meaning or context of those files. DES also recognizes that errors can occur even when care is taken, and requests anyone who believes a posted rule or other document contains an error to contact the DES Legal Unit at Legal@des.nh.gov.
