KANSAS ADMINISTRATIVE REGULATIONS (K.A.R.)

Regulations are enacted by an agency to implement or interpret legislation. Permanent regulations are filed in the Secretary of State's office and published in the Kansas Administrative Regulations (K.A.R.). Temporary regulations are published in the Kansas Register, but are not published in the K.A.R. hard copy books.

The 2018 Supplement Book 1 and Book 2 to the Kansas Administrative Regulations contains the most current version of permanent regulations filed in 2009 through 2017, and supplements the 2009 K.A.R. Volumes.

The 2009 K.A.R. contains the most current version of permanent regulations filed through December 31, 2008. A person may choose to view the PDF listings of the 2009 K.A.R. Volumes in order by Agency number or the 2009 K.A.R. Volumes in order by Agency name . Click here for a PDF listing recent agency name changes.

  • next check the current K.A.R. Supplement
  • and finally check the current K.A.R. volume
