Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

820 ILCS 219/55

    (820 ILCS 219/55)
    Sec. 55. Rules generally.
    (a) The Director, from time to time, shall promulgate rules that clearly describe the persons to whom those rules apply and that clearly describe the conduct that is required of those persons. Each such rule shall, by its terms, be uniform and general in its application wherever the subject matter of the rule exists in any workplace having employees in the service of a public employer. The rules may include rules that, when applicable to products which are distributed or used in interstate commerce, are required by compelling local conditions and do not unduly burden interstate commerce.
    (b) Any standards or rules promulgated by the Director under the Safety Inspection and Education Act or the Health and Safety Act that are in full force on the effective date of this Act shall become the rules of the Department under this Act. This Act does not affect the legality of any such rules in the Illinois Administrative Code.
    (c) Any proposed standards or rules filed with the Secretary of State by the Director under the Safety Inspection and Education Act or the Health and Safety Act that are pending in the rulemaking process on the effective date of this Act shall be deemed to have been filed by the Director under this Act.
    (d) As soon as practicable after the effective date of this Act, the Director shall revise and clarify the standards or rules described in subsections (b) and (c) as necessary to reflect the provisions of this Act.
    (e) The Director of Labor shall adopt such rules as he or she may deem necessary to implement the provisions of this Act, including, but not limited to, rules dealing with the inspection of an employer's establishment.
