Administrative law encompasses rules, regulations, and administrative decisions from the executive, executive agencies, and independent regulatory agencies. In California, the term administrative law (also known as regulatory law) refers to the body of law created by the California executive and administrative agencies. The California Administrative Procedure Act (Cal. Gov’t. Code § 11340 et seq.) outlines the powers and boundaries of the administrative functions, as well as setting up an Office of Administrative Law to oversee the “orderly review of adopted regulations.” The basic working tool of regulatory law is the California Code of Regulations(CCR).
People often deal with administrative agencies and administrative law when they apply for government benefits. For example, Congress has passed laws that allow disabled individuals to receive government assistance. The Social Security Administration (SSA) is the administrative agency created to implement Congress's social security and disability laws

The Office of Administration Law publishes three primary publications for California:
1) California Code of Regulations,
2) California Code of Regulations supplement and the
3) California Regulatory Notice Register
The CCR contains regulations duly adopted pursuant to the Administrative Procedure Act (APA) by California state agencies. Generally speaking, after OAL approves a proposed regulation adopted by a state agency, it then files the regulation with the Secretary of State. The CCR is updated weekly through the publication of the CCR Supplement (Register). The CCR Supplement (Register) is commonly and historically referred to as the “Register.”
