Rules and Regulations
APA's regulations are found within Title 9, Subtitle Q of the New York Codes, Rules and Regulations (NYCRR).
The links to the various parts of our regulations go to a compilation on the Westlaw website. While they are believed to be accurate, they are not certified copies of the regulations and therefore should not be relied upon for legal interpretation.
Also, APA's website contains links to various guidance documents and summaries of regulations that are not the regulations themselves.
The official written regulations published by the Department of State are the official source for NYSAPA regulations. To ensure that you are viewing the most current regulations, check the weekly New York State Register for recent rule adoptions that have not yet been published in the unofficial online NYCRR.
The navigational links, headers, and footers on each page are not part of the official language of the regulation, but have been provided for the convenience of the user.
The following documents commonly meet many needs.
If you're not sure where to start, start with the Citizen's Guide. It should answer many questions or direct you to sources that will.
