About the Administrative Code

Generally

The Utah Administrative Code is an official publication of the Division of Administrative Rules, mandated by Section 63G-3-402. It is Utah's equivalent to the Code of Federal Regulations. The Utah Administrative Code is "evidence of the administrative law of the state of Utah" and an "authorized compilation of the administrative law of Utah" (Section 63G-3-701). The Division of Administrative Rules codifies changes to the Utah Administrative Code on a monthly basis. The Utah Administrative Code is an electronic publication, although a paper version is available from a private publisher. 

Organization

The Utah Administrative Code is generally organized alphabetically by department, board, or commission, then agency (though various agency name changes have disturbed the alphabetical order within departments). For example, the first department is "Administrative Services," which starts with a section for "Administration" normally containing rules applying to all agencies of the department. The next agency under Administrative Services is "Administrative Rules," containing all of that division's rules, followed by "Debt Collection (Office of)," and so on. Many of the smaller departments such as "Alcoholic Beverage Control" have no division rules so all rules fall under the department designation.

Format Notes

Generally

The administrative rules that comprise the current Utah Administrative Code are available online in three formats--as individual HTML documents, as individual Rich Text Format (RTF) documents, and as compressed archives of RTF documents.   The compressed files may be viewed using Windows XP/Vista/7, or with a utility like PKUnZip, 7-Zip, or a similar program.  These zip files must be decompressed before they may be edited. 

Files containing all rules or changed rules, as of the first of a given month are available from the Administrative Code Updates page. 

Agencies Preparing Amendments

Agency rulewriters may use the RTF version to prepare an amendment to a rule or a repeal of a rule. A rulewriter may download the RTF version in two ways. To retrieve a specific rule, follow the link below to the HTML version and click the "Download the RTF file" link a the top of the page. To retrieve all of an agency's rules in RTF format, click the "compressed RTF" below. The zip file containing the RTF documents must be decompressed before the RTF files may be edited. The method for decompressing these files varies depending upon your computer's configuration. Please contact your information technology staff with questions.

Authentication

The Division of Administrative Rules has generated an MD5 hash for the Rich Text Format files (files saved with an ".rtf" extension) and compressed RTF files (files saved with a ".zip" extension) that can be downloaded from this web site. An MD5 hash is, in essence, a signature for a file. You can confirm the integrity of the files you download by comparing the MD5 hash the Division generated with one that you generate. Various software packages are available that permit you to generate an MD5 hash such as MD5Summer (graphical user interface), winMD5Sum (graphical user interface), MD5SUMS (no graphical user interface), or File Checksum Integrity Verifier (no graphical user interface). If the hashes do not match exactly, then the integrity of the file is in question. Please contact the Division of Administrative Rules immediately if the hash numbers do not match.
