Searching Code of Maryland Regulations (COMAR)
The Code of Maryland Regulations, often referred to as COMAR, is the official compilation of all administrative regulations issued by agencies of the state of Maryland and authorized by the General Assembly.
People often confuse the Code of Maryland Regulations (COMAR) with the Annotated Code of Maryland. COMAR regulations are Maryland State agency regulations, which are referenced by Title numbers (currently 1-36).
Annotated Code of Maryland is a compilation of the statutes enacted by the Maryland Legislature, generally organized by subject (e.g., Public Utility Articles). There are currently 36 subjects and 101 Articles in the Annotated code. Citation numbers for the Annotated Code begin with a § (“section sign”), for example §1-101.
COMAR is currently updated in print every two years, but the online version, maintained by the Maryland Division of State Documents, is updated as soon as an agency publishes or updates a regulation. The printed version is considered the official version.
