Alaska Statutes are passed by the legislature. Regulations (also called the Alaska Administrative Code) are rules adopted by the department to implement, interpret, and make specific the statutes. Both statutes and regulations have the force of law.

AS 08.11 and regulations 12 AAC 07 specifically apply to audiologists and speech-language pathologists. AS 08.01 - 08.03 and regulations 12 AAC 02 apply to all professions regulated by the division.
