Important Update Regarding Filings

The Department of State now allows electronic submission of signed rule filings, notices of rulemaking hearings, withdrawals, and stays. According to rules 1360-01-01, 1360-01-02, and 1360-01-03, we will now accept three (3) original forms documents with original signatures in hard copy or a single PDF copy of the signed original form. Signatures may be affixed electronically. Notarization or certification of signatures is no longer required. Electronic filings should be emailed to publications.information@tn.gov. We still require a Word document of the forms, and the Word document must be transmitted by email to the same email address as above. If you have any questions, please contact the Division of Publications at 615-741-2650 or publications.information@tn.gov.

 

As provided by T.C.A. Title 4, Chapter 5, the rules and regulations are the current and official rules and regulations presented as the official compilation – Rules and Regulations of the State of Tennessee – and are inclusive of all amendments, repeals, and/or deletions.
