The New Jersey Administrative Code (abbreviated N.J.A.C. in legal citations) is the collection of all rules and regulations made by the executive branch agencies of the State of New Jersey.

Responsibility for the compilation, publication, and updating of the New Jersey Administrative Code lies with the New Jersey Office of Administrative Law (OAL).[1] All rules and regulations must be made in accordance with the New Jersey Administrative Procedure Act and the OAL's Rules for Agency Rulemaking, which are codified at in Title 1, Chapter 30 of the Code. Newly proposed rules are published for comment in another publication of the OAL, the New Jersey Register, which is the state counterpart to the Federal Register. The New Jersey Register is published twice a month. Once the new rules are officially adopted, they are published in the Code.[2]


The appendices to the Code also contain tables correlating rules and statutes, the executive orders of the State's governors, and a definition table.
