Recently Adopted Administrative Rules

Recently adopted Administrative Rules pertaining to NH DHHS.

When a proposed rule is approved by the Joint Legislative Committee on Administrative Rules (JLCAR) and adopted by the Department, the ARU prepares a certified copy of the rule in collaboration with the Office of Legislative Services, which is the office that is responsible for posting the official version of the rule on their website. Depending on the effective date of the rule, and the length of the certification process, recently adopted rules may be posted here to the DHHS website. Note that the Adopted Rules posted here are for informational purposes only and may be subject to editorial changes before being considered the "official" version. All official versions of DHHS rules are located at the New Hampshire Office of Legislative Services website.
