Department of State Treasurer Decennial Review of Existing Rules

N.C. General Statute §150B-21.3A adopted in 2013, requires state agencies to review existing rules every 10 years. The Department of State Treasurer rules are encompassed in the subchapters of Title 20 of the North Carolina Administrative Code. The Department's rules are reviewed on a schedule established by the Rules Review Commission. The rules that are available for public comment are posted below under Decennial Rules Review. 

As required by N.C. General Statutes §150B-21.3A(c), the Department must review and make an initial determination from one of these three classifications: 
  • Necessary with substantive public interest – the agency has received public comment on the rule within the past two years or the rule affects the property interest of the regulated public, and the agency knows or suspects that any person may object to the rule. 
  • Necessary without substantive public interest – the agency determines that the rule is needed, and the rule has not had public comment in the last two years. This category includes rules that identify information that is readily available to the public, such as an address or telephone number.
  • Unnecessary – the agency determines that the rule is obsolete, redundant or otherwise not needed.

Comments regarding the Department's initial determinations will be accepted by e-mail to or by mail to:
