Active Regulatory Process

Standard Process

The standard process is the most common and is a six to seven-step process. An Enhanced Regulatory Outreach Program (EROP) case may need additional time in between steps at any time during the process to allow for processing, drafting work, or additional reviews and approvals from outside agencies.

  1. County Manager Briefs the Board of Supervisors
  2. Stakeholder Workshop
  3. First Board of Health Meeting to initiate the regulatory change
  4. Additional Stakeholder Workshop(s) (optional)
  5. Notice of Proposed Rulemaking
  6. Second Board of Health Meeting to recommend approval of the regulatory change
  7. Public Hearing with Board of Supervisors

Expedited Process

The expedited process eliminates steps 6 from the standard process and may only be used if the proposed amendment process has included at least one stakeholder workshop and one public meeting with the Board of Health. Additionally, there must not have been any comments of opposition submitted from the public.

  1. County Manager briefs the Board of Supervisors
  2. Stakeholder Workshop
  3. Board of Health meeting with to approve expedited rulemaking process
  4. Notice of Proposed Rulemaking
  5. Public Hearing with Board of Supervisors

Incorporation by Reference

The incorporation by reference process requires only three steps. This process may be used only in the following circumstances:

  • When the rule merely changes the date of incorporation of a federal rule or statute when there has been no change in the rule since its last incorporation; or
  • An update of a previous Code of Federal Regulations incorporation by reference where there have been changes since the last date of incorporation of the federal regulations, but legal requirements compel the County adoption of the revised federal rule if the County is to retain its jurisdiction.
  1. County Manager briefs the Board of Supervisors
  2. Notice of Expedited Rulemaking
  3. Public Hearing with Board of Supervisors
