Nevada Administrative Code Historical Database

Per NRS 233B.062, it is the policy of the State that every regulation be made easily accessible to the public and be expressed in clear and concise language. To ensure accessibility, all permanent regulations, except those of exempted agencies (listed below), are included in the Nevada Administrative Code (hereafter "NAC"). Every effective permanent regulation adopted by an agency that is not exempt from the requirements of chapter 233B of the NRS should be in this code, which is also available on the Internet at

The Legislature publishes amendments to the NAC anywhere from 1-6 times a year. The Nevada Supreme Court Law Library keeps all superseded/historical pages from the NAC. With approval from the Legislature, this database has been created by the Law Library to provide digital access to superseded pages of the NAC from its first publication in 1980 through its most current amendments.

**Please note: This digital archive is an ongoing project; the Law Library will update the database as amendments are received. The database currently offers access to NAC Chapters 38 through 683 from 1980 through the 2014 amendments. The remaining chapters, along with the NAC amendments since 2014, will be added in the next several months.

While this database will ultimately allow for full-text searching, it will take time for the server to index each page to allow for this functionality. Under the drop down menu “Search Type,” you can also select to search by keyword if you would prefer to search that way instead of full-text. If you are searching for a specific section or Chapter and are unable to find what you are looking for, please contact the Law Library at 775-684-1640 or email us at
