DTSC Emergency Regulations

DTSC adopts emergency regulations when it determines, and the Office of Administrative Law concurs, that there is an immediate need for a regulation to protect the public health and safety or the general welfare. Typically, emergency regulations stay in effect for 180 days, during which DTSC conducts its rulemaking process to permanently adopt the regulations.
