Section 63G-3-305 requires each agency to review its rules within five years of each rule’s original enactment, and then within five-year intervals. To comply with the review requirement, the agency must submit a “Five-Year Notice of Review and Statement of Continuation” by the review due date. Otherwise, an unreviewed rule expires, becomes unenforceable, and is removed from the Utah Administrative Code. Reviews may be filed ANY TIME prior to the deadline.
When filing a “Five-Year Notice of Review and Statement of Continuation,” eRules requires that the agency submit a copy of the rule text (no underlining or strike-out). Current rule text in RTF format is available from http://www.rules.utah.gov/publicat/code.htm. You may also contact the Division (801-538-3003 or 801-538-3218) to obtain a current version of a rule.
Please do not wait until the due date to file a five-year review. If there is a problem filing on that day, you could lose a rule because the deadline was missed.
The Division sends quarterly e-mail notices to agencies of rules due for review. This list below is current through 11/03/2014 indicating all of the rules that are due for review during the remainder of 2014.
