Citing to the NMAC

The proper way to cite the NMAC is established in 1.24.10.9 NMAC. There are three options: full citation, modified full citation, and short-form citation. Most people use the short-form citation.

Full citation consists of the name of the part, followed by a comma, a space, the name of the issuing agency, followed by a comma, a space, the title number, followed a period, the chapter number, followed by a period, the part number, a space and the initials “NMAC.” The citation shall be followed by the effective date in parentheses.
For example: Rights and Responsibilities of the Public Schools and Public School Students, New Mexico Board of Education, 6.11.2 NMAC (8/15/97 as amended through 11/30/2000)

Modified full citation is similar to the full citation but the name of the issuing agency is omitted.
For example: Rights and Responsibilities of the Public Schools and Public School Students, 6.11.2 NMAC (8/15/97 as amended through 11/30/2000)

Short-form citation consists of the title, chapter, and part number separated by periods and followed by “NMAC.”
For example: 6.11.2 NMAC

If a citation goes to the section level, the section number is placed after the part number and before “NMAC.”
For example: 6.11.2.12 NMAC

If a citation goes below the section level, the designations precede the citation. For example: Subparagraph (a) of Paragraph (2) of Subsection D of 6.11.2.12 NMAC.
