Regulatory Process

The Maricopa County Enhanced Regulatory Outreach Program (EROP) was adopted in an effort to promote consistency and transparency among selected regulatory departments. During each regulatory amendment, one of three different processes will occur. The three processes include standard, expedited and Incorporation by Reference and each type determines the number of steps that will be included.


The Standard process, which is the most common, includes steps 1 through 10. The Expedited process eliminates steps 6 and 7 and may only be used if the proposed amendment has included at least one stakeholder workshop and one citizen's board or commission meeting (public meeting). Additionally, there must not have been any comments of opposition submitted from the public for the proposed amendment. Incorporation by Reference only requires steps 1, 8, 9 and 10. This process may only be used when the rule merely changes the date of incorporation of a federal rule or statute. Please view the County-Wide Regulatory Adoption Amendment Process Flowcharts (PDF) as well as the Department-Specific Rulemaking Process Flowcharts (PDF) for more information.

Citizen Feedback


The Planning and Development Department is committed to providing multiple opportunities for stakeholder input regarding the adoption and amendment of all regulatory requirements. In the event the Department fails to observe adoption procedures pertaining to Maricopa County's Enhanced Regulatory Outreach Program policy, citizens can submit a complaint.
