The New York Codes, Rules and Regulations (NYCRR), sometimes referred to as the Rules and Regulations of the State of New York, primarily contains state agency rules and regulations (sometimes called administrative law) adopted under the State Administrative Procedure Act (SAPA) after being published in the New York State Register. The NYCRR is officially compiled by the New York State Department of State's Division of Administrative Rules.[1]


The 22 Titles include one for each state department, one for miscellaneous agencies and one for the judiciary. The Office of Court Administration and the New York State Unified Court System are exempt from SAPA requirements.

The New York state judiciary is unique in that its court rules are included in what is largely a codification of executive branch regulations. All other states and the federal government maintain court rules separately from executive regulations in order to maintain the principle of separation of powers.

The NYCRR comprises the following 22 numbered titles, with the corresponding agency listed:
