Supplements are proposed Administrative Code changes submitted to the Legislative Council by agencies. Supplements are prepared and presented to the Administrative Rules Committee quarterly.
The Legislative Council publishes the Administrative Code which is the codification of all rules of state administrative agencies, as that term is defined by North Dakota Century Code Section 28-32-02. Many state agencies are not administrative agencies as defined by Section 28-32-02. Although rules of those agencies are not required to be published in the Administrative Code, some agencies have consented to placing their rules in the code. Those agencies are identified with an explanatory note on the title page for that agency. The Administrative Code was initially published July 1, 1978. The Administrative Code is updated with quarterly changes. The Administrative Code is published in a CD-ROM version, for which subscriptions may be obtained from the Secretary of State, and an Internet version, available here. The Internet version is derived from the database prepared by the North Dakota Legislative Council. It may vary in some respects from the text in the CD-ROM version. Updates generally will appear in the Internet version sooner than in the CD-ROM version.
