 Rules and Regulations of the State of Georgia

The Office of the Secretary of State now provides an electronic version of the Rules and Regulations of the State of Georgia. NOTE: The Rules and Regulations of the State of Georgia is a compilation of the rules and regulations of state agencies that have been filed with the Office of Secretary of State pursuant the Georgia Administrative Procedures Act, O.C.G.A.§ 50-13-1 et seq.  

This page is a service offered by the Georgia Secretary of State to provide information for public use to Georgia citizens. This service is hosted, formatted, and updated by Lawriter, LLC. Recently, Lawriter discovered that one of its competitors, Fastcase, was electronically mining the data from this site and reselling it to their subscribers without paying publishing fees that all other resellers are paying. Scraping data from this site to avoid paying publishing fees and then reselling it makes it more difficult for the Secretary of State to cover the costs of hosting, formatting, updating, and otherwise running this site. In an effort to stop resellers from scraping the website to avoid paying publishing fees and therefore preserving the feasibility of offering this public service, certain functionality (such as copy & paste and printing) has been turned off. We apologize for any inconvenience. If you are a government user, please contact the Secretary of State’s office for further assistance. Pursuant to OCGA 50-13-7, resellers of this data may subscribe to the official compilation of the Rules and Regulations of the State of Georgia at the price fixed by the Secretary of State. If resellers abide with this requirement, full functionality of this public use site can be restored.

The electronic version of the Rules and Regulations on this website should not be regarded as the official copy. An “official” compilation of the Rules and Regulations of the State of Georgia may be obtained from the designated legal publisher of this publication:
