Pa's Independent Regulatory Review Commission (IRRC) has approved the final draft of the Act 37 Rules & Regulations. Act 37 was signed into Law in July 2009. The approval of the regulations will allow the Commonwealth of Pa to fully implement the law. While some aspects of the law are already in effect, the majority of the law will be implemented in 180 days after they appear in the PA Bulletin. EMMCO West will be conducting town hall meetings in the upcoming months to provide more information. Download Final Regulations
