A person may petition the Governor's Regulatory Review Council for review of a final rule if you believe that the final rule does not meet the requirements prescribed in A.R.S. § 41-1030 or whether an existing agency practice or substantive policy constitutes a rule pursuant to A.R.S. § 41-1033.  A substantive policy statement is advisory only.  If you believe a substantive policy statement imposes additional requirements or penalties on a regulated party as outlined in A.R.S. § 41-1033 and A.R.S. § 41-1091.

All Petitions and Appeals must be submitted to the Council electronically at grrc@azdoa.gov. For more information on your right to petition and the process, please see the Governor's Regulatory Review Council website or 602-542.2058.
