Periodic Review of Existing Rules

N.C. Gen. Stat. §150B-21.3A adopted in 2013, requires state agencies to review existing rules every 10 years. The Real Estate Commission’s rules are located by subchapters in Title 21 of the NC Administrative Code, Chapter 58 and are due for review in March 2018.

The Commission is required to evaluate each of the existing rules and make an initial determination from one of these three classifications:

The Commission invites you to submit written comments on the Initial Periodic Review Determination Report to the Commission Rulemaking Coordinator, Melissa Vuotto. Public comments will be accepted from March 24, 2017, to May 30, 2017. A “public comment” is defined by G.S. 150B-21.3A(a)(5) as a written objection to all or part of a rule. Additionally, pursuant to G.S. 150B-21.3A(c)(2), in order for the Rules Review Commission to determine whether the public comment has merit, the public comment must address the specific substance of the rule and address any of the standards of Commission review, as set forth in G.S. 150B-21.9(a)
