DEC Regulations

Downloadable Environmental Conservation Regulations

Important note to reader: Regulations are adopted by agencies and approved by the Executive Branch. They add detail to the general authority given in Alaska's Statutes, which are passed by the state Legislature.

The links from the headings below are to DEC regulations stored in the Legislative Affairs Agency's website. They are updated quarterly so they may not reflect current law. For links to regulations which have been recently revised, download the PDF file.

For many of the chapters there are links to the complete chapter as a PDF file.
