Please note that this Web site may provide links to the text of Massachusetts General Laws (MGL) and the Code of Massachusetts Regulations (CMR). This electronic text is NOT the official version of the MGL or the CMR. The electronic version may also not reflect the most recent changes to the law.

Some of the regulations that appear on this Web site are derived from documents used by the Secretary of State in preparing the official Code of Massachusetts Regulations (CMR). Their content and format may or may not have been subsequently modified. Other regulations may appear in a format specifically created for service providers, in which case the official regulation has been modified by adding a header on every page. Although we try to keep the regulations on our Web site up-to-date, that is not always possible. In the case of any discrepancy between the version on our Web site, and the official Code of Massachusetts Regulations published by the Secretary of State, the Secretary of State's version takes precedence.
