Rule Revisions

The Board completes its five-year review of applicable rules in a timely manner each year. Also, each year, individual rules not slated for five-year review are amended to comply with recent legislative changes or for technical or non-substantive reasons.

The Board held a hearing regarding proposed rule revisions on November 20, 2019. You may review the proposed rule changes at the Register of Ohio website,
