Administrative Rules

The Legislative and Policy Outreach Team responsible for coordinating the process for proposed changes to DPI administrative rules. Further information on proposed rules by the agency that are currently in process can be found below.

What is a Rule?

Under Wis. Stat. 227.01 (13), an administrative rule is defined as "a regulation, standard, statement of policy, or general order of general application which has the effect of law and which is issued by an agency to implement, interpret, or make specific legislation enforced or administered by the agency or to govern the organization or procedure of the agency." Rules may be required because of legislation or court decision, or may be modified through an agency's own initiative. However, agencies such as DPI are only permitted to promulgate an administrative rule if they have the statutory authority to do so. Promulgation activity for administrative rules can take 12-14 months to complete and must be conducted in accordance with Wis. Stat. ch. 227.
