NDEP Statutes & Regulations

The table below provides links to selected portions of the Nevada Revised Statutes (NRS - State laws) and the Nevada Administrative Code (NAC).

The Nevada Administrative Code (NAC) is the State of Nevada's code of state regulations. The LINKS to the NRSs and the NACs point directly to the Legislative Counsel Bureau's (LCB) website, and most of the links point directly to specific subsections within each webpage.

Rule Making — It's worth mentioning that NDEP is often involved in the rule making process, particularly after each biennial legislative session. In this process, regulations that are adopted by the State Environmental Commission and become "effective by date certain" may not be codified into the online NACs available on LCB's website in a timely fashion. These adopted regulations are nevertheless made available on LCB's Administrative Regulations Website.
