What is the Ohio Revised Code (ORC)?


A state's revised code is the compilation of all permanent laws and general provisions currently in force. The Ohio Revised Code (ORC) contains all laws which have been enacted by the state's legislature, signed by the Governor or ratified through the initiative process. Laws of a non-permanent nature are not included in the state's Revised Code. People can access a certified copy of the ORC online or in book format and use it as a reference, however neither should be considered to be an official publication. The only official publication listing the General Assembly's enactments is found in the Laws of Ohio.
