Industrial Commission Administrative Rulemaking Process

In accordance with Governor Brad Little’s Executive Order 2020-01: Zero-Based Regulation (ZBR), the Industrial Commission will reduce regulatory burdens by removing costly, ineffective, or outdated regulations. 

Currently, the Industrial Commission is reexamining the Idaho Workers’ Compensation Administrative Rules: IDAPA 17.01.01 – Administrative Rules Under the Worker’s Compensation Law.

As part of the rulemaking process, the Commission will host multiple negotiated rulemaking meetings throughout 2024 to allow Commission stakeholders to share their feedback regarding the current administrative rules and recommend potential changes to improve the effectiveness and reduce regulatory burden.  Members of the public may participate in person or virtually via Webex. The Industrial Commission will provide live streaming of the negotiated rulemaking meetings at designated locations.

Following the conclusion of negotiated rulemaking meetings, the Industrial Commission will hold two public hearings, tentatively scheduled for September 16 and October 2, 2024, at the Industrial Commission 11321 W. Chinden Blvd. Building #2, Boise, ID 83714, to receive final public testimony and comments.
