Please be aware that the OFFICIAL versions of all state statutes and regulations (and many of the MassDEP policies) are only available through the State Bookstore or from the Secretary of State's CMR Subscription Service .
When downloading regulations and policies from the MassDEP Web site, the copy you receive may be different from the official version for a number of reasons, including but not limited to:

  1. The download may have gone wrong and you may have lost important information.
  2. The document may not print well given your specific software/ hardware setup.
  3. If you translate our documents to another word processing program, it may miss/skip/lose important information.
  4. The file on this Web site may be out-of-date (as hard as we try to keep everything current).

If you must know that the version you have is correct and up-to-date, then purchase the document through the state bookstore, the subscription service, and/or contact the appropriate MassDEP program
