This chapter examines the key aspects and requirements of public health regulation. It focuses on how state and local public health practitioners can translate legal authority into effective public health practice and management. The chapter aims to set forth the mechanics of the administrative process; and to provide a practical context for using the administrative process to the practitioner's advantage. Understanding and effectively using the administrative process will both facilitate public health practice and invite public support for public health policies.

Keywords:   public health practice, law, public health regulation, administrative process, health policy
