§ 10-1-601 - Rules and regulations; orders
. Rules and regulations; orders
The administrator is authorized to promulgate, adopt, and issue rules, regulations, and orders necessary or convenient to carry out the provisions and purposes of this article. Any such rules of a substantive nature shall be promulgated only when it is determined by the administrator, in the reasonable exercise of his discretion and on the basis of his expertise and the facts, submissions, evidence, and all information before him, that such rules are needed to prohibit or control acts or practices which create the probability of actual injury to consumers. No rule shall be promulgated where it is reasonably certain that the burden of complying with such rule will outweigh the public interest in prohibiting or controlling the practice which would be so prohibited or controlled. No such rule so promulgated shall be arbitrary or capricious nor shall its promulgation be characterized by an abuse of discretion or an unwarranted exercise of discretion.
