Rule Change Tracker
Use this resource to follow changes to the NCMB’s administrative rules. The table below displays proposed rules and proposed amendments to existing rules.
Rules typically go through numerous revisions before they are finally approved by the NC Rules Review Commission (RRC). The NCMB will periodically update the text posted to reflect revisions. The final text of the rule will be posted pending approval by RRC.
- The first step in the rules process is publication of the text of the proposed rule in the NC Register (Status = Published)
- The next step is a public hearing to receive written or oral comments on the proposed rule (Status = Public Hearing)
- Once comments are received and reviewed, the NCMB may make revisions to the rule based on feedback. The rule is then submitted to the NC Rules Review Commission for final approval (Status = Submitted to RRC)
