The MMED Rules are written in response to direction and authority provided by statute. All rules undergo the due process detailed by the Colorado Administrative Procedures Act - which require an opportunity for the public to comment and request changes prior to their adoption by the State Licensing Authority. Any proposed rules must also undergo scrutiny by the Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies, the State Attorney General's Office and the Legislative Legal Services Office.
The initial draft of the current rules are the product of a collaborate process in which MMED staff facilitated a workgroup made of up industry stakeholders. The draft of rules generated by this workgroup then followed due process via the Administrative Procedures Act, during which public comments led to the modification of some of the rules prior to their adoption by the State Licensing Authority.
