Regulations of the Connecticut
Department Of Public Health

Current with materials published on the Connecticut eRegulations website

Public Act 12-92 required the secretary of the state, beginning July 1, 2013, to post an online compilation of all state agency regulations, including emergency regulations.   The public act also requires that this compilation be easily accessible to, and searchable by, the public and designates it as the “official version” of the regulations of state agencies for “all purposes, including all legal and administrative proceedings.”


The Governor’s office in conjunction with the Office of the Secretary of the State and the Department of Administrative Services, Bureau of Enterprises Services in Technology worked together to lead this effort to modernize the way state agencies create and publish regulations.  The result of this effort is the creation of the eRegulations System.  The eRegulations system serves as an official compilation of the regulations for all Connecticut State Agencies. 


The regulations listed on this page contain the Regulations of Connecticut State Agencies that specifically concern the Department of Public Health.  Copies of these regulations can be found on the new Connecticut eRegulations System website at: or by clicking on the links below.  Please click here to view the Department's notices of intent to create regulations
