Administrative Rules
The State Bureau of Investigation rules are located by subchapters in Title 14B of the North Carolina Administrative Code.

Periodic Review of Existing Administrative Rules

  • N.C. Gen. Stat. §150B-21.3A, adopted in 2013, requires state agencies to review existing rules every 10 years. SBI rules will be reviewed on a schedule established by the North Carolina Rules Review Commission. As SBI rules are reviewed and become available for public comment, they will be made available here on the SBI website.
  • Public Comment: If you would like to receive notices regarding rules undergoing rules review that are open for public comment under N.C. Gen. Stat. §150B-21.3A; or leave public comment about these rules, please use the SBI Contact Us form.

    Public comment is defined by G.S. 150B-21.3A(a)(5) as a written objection to all or part of a rule. Additionally, pursuant to G.S. 150B-21.3A(c)(2), in order for the Rules Review Commission to determine whether the public comment has merit, the public comment must address the specific substance of the rule and address any of the standards of Commission review, as set forth in G.S. 150B-21.9(a).
