Did you know that, effective June 1, 2018, the Industrial Commission’s Rules were recodified from Title 04 Chapter 10 of the North Carolina Administrative Code to Title 11 Chapter 23 of the Administrative Code? According to the NCIC’s website, all references and citations to an Industrial Commission Rule on or after June 1, 2018, should use the new title and chapter citation. The recodification is part of the transfer of the Industrial Commission from the Department of Commerce to the Department of Insurance.

Please contact our Workers' Compensation Team with any questions about this new procedure.
