Arizona Administrative Code
Title 4 - Professions and Occupations
Chapter 1 - Board of Accountancy

State agencies, boards and commissions, are given rulemaking authority from the State Legislature. Executive agencies carry out state laws through the development and enforcement of regulations. Authorized by statute, regulations (sometimes called rules or administrative laws) have the effect of law. Regulations are designed to increase flexibility and efficiency in the operation of laws. Many of the actual working provisions of statutes are embodied in regulations. Regulations are developed and enacted through a rule-making process, which includes public input. The Board holds open meetings and public hearings, allowing citizens to participate in the creation of regulations. It provides a unique opportunity for citizens to influence and shape their laws directly.

Pursuant to A.R.S. § 41-1033, any person may file a petition with the Governor's Regulatory Review Council for review of a final rule based on the person's belief that the final rule does not meet the requirements of A.R.S. § 41-1030. A person may also petition the Governor's Regulatory Review Council to request review of an existing agency practice, substantive policy statement, final rule or regulatory requirement that is not specifically authorized by statute pursuant to title 32 based on the person's belief that the existing agency practice, substantive policy statement, final rule or regulatory licensing requirement is unduly burdensome or is not demonstrated to specifically fulfill a public health, safety or welfare concern.
