About Emergency Regulations: Emergency regulations are adopted to address urgent circumstances. They are effective temporarily and are not published in the Regulations of Connecticut State Agencies. Emergency regulations become effective either (1) when they are posted to the eRegulations System or (2) not more than 19 days after they are posted.

Effective Period and Renewals: Emergency Regulations are effective for 120 days or less unless renewed. All emergency regulations can be renewed once for 60 days by notifying the Secretary of the State. Certain Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) regulations can be renewed for one additional 60-day period with approval from the Legislative Regulation Review Committee.

Effective Status: Emergency regulations listed on this page with a status of "Final Approved" are considered to be in effect. However, please be aware that emergency regulations can be rendered ineffective by judicial action or when replaced by a permanent regulation. Therefore, please contact the adopting agency with any questions about whether a specific emergency regulation is currently in effect.
