Ohio Administrative Rules

Ohio Administrative Rules

Want to track administrative rules through your email? Sign up for an account at RuleWatch Ohio! RuleWatch Ohio allows you to track rules by a state department or by individual administrative rule. Every time a rule begins the rule-making process, RuleWatch sends you an email notification.

All rules actively going through the rule-making process are also registered with the Register of Ohio. If a rule is going through the rule-making process, the Register will include copies of the rules, copies of Public Hearing Notices, comments from the Common Sense Initiative (CSI) Office, and a Rule Summary and Fiscal Analysis (RFSA).

Each agency also has their rules under development listed on their respected website. The below links will take you directly to the rules under development pages for each agency.
