Upcoming Regulatory Notices

New Jersey State Regulations

New Jersey State regulations, called rules, implement the statutes that are the legal basis for operating State programs and services.  Rules utilized by the Department of Human Services are codified at Title 10 of the New Jersey Administrative Code.

The New Jersey Administrative Code, an official publication of the State of New Jersey, compiles all effective rules adopted by State agencies and filed with the Office of Administrative Law.

The New Jersey Administrative Code is available from LexisNexis, the publisher licensed by the NJ Office of Administrative Law. A searchable online version of the Code is available at LexisNexis.  LexisNexis provides free on-line public access to the New Jersey Administrative Code and the New Jersey Register at

Copies of rules are provided here as a courtesy and are not the official versions. Though every effort is made to ensure that the text provided here is identical to the official, legally effective versions of rule, if any discrepancies exist between the text at this website and the official version of the rules, the official version will govern.

If you would like to be notified by e-mail of rulemaking proposed by the DHS Division of Mental Health and Addiction Services (DMHAS), you can be added to the DMHAS electronic mailing list by clicking here.
