KANSAS ADMINISTRATIVE REGULATIONS (K.A.R.)

Regulations are enacted by an agency to implement or interpret legislation. All regulations are filed in the secretary of state's office and published in the Kansas Administrative Regulations (K.A.R.).*

To find the current version of a regulation online follow these steps in order:

  1. Check the table of contents in the most current Kansas Register to see if a new regulation has been filed or an existing regulation has been recently amended or revoked.
  2. Consult the Index to Administrative Regulations in the most recently published Kansas Register to determine whether a regulation has been recently filed, amended or revoked.
  3. If a more recent version of a regulation does not appear in the Kansas Register Table of Contents or Index to Administrative Regulations, then examine the current K.A.R. Supplement.
  4. If a more recent version of a regulation does not appear in the previous three locations, then the regulation in the Kansas Administrative Regulations is the current version.

The 2013 Supplement to the Kansas Administrative Regulations contains the most current version of regulations filed in 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012, and supplements the 2009 K.A.R. Volumes.

The 2009 K.A.R. contains the most current version of 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 .
