NOTICE OF REVIEW AND STATEMENT OF CONTINUATION

Concise explanation of the particular statutory provisions under which the rule is enacted and how these provisions authorize or require the rule:

Subsection 34A-1-104(1) and Section 34A-1-304 authorize the Utah Labor Commission (Commission) to adopt rules and conduct adjudicative proceedings relating to the administration of the Utah Workers' Compensation Act. Section 34A-2-422 of the Utah Workers' Compensation Act specifically prohibits any transfer of workers' compensation payment rights unless the proposed transfer is first submitted to and approved by the Commission. Therefore, in order to administer an orderly system of adjudication, it is necessary for the Commission to establish the procedural and substantive requirements for Commission approval of any request for transfer of workers compensation payment rights.

Summary of written comments received during and since the last five-year review of the rule from interested persons supporting or opposing the rule:

No written comments have been received during and since the last five-year review of this rule.

Reasoned justification for continuation of the rule, including reasons why the agency disagrees with comments in opposition to the rule, if any:

This rule remains necessary to establish the procedural and substantive requirements for Commission approval of any request for transfer of workers' compensation payment rights. Therefore, this rule should be continued.
