Office of Regulatory Relief


Fostering Kentucky's biggest ideas.​ 

​​The K​entucky Office of Regulatory Relief (“KORR”) administers the General Regulatory Sandbox Program. Created by the General Assembly in 2022, t​he Sandbox gives businesses the chance to experiment with products, production methods or services by temporarily waiving administrative regulations. The Program allows entrepreneurs to determine if customers value products or services that are not possible under the Commonwealth's current regulatory framework. 

If a Sandbox demonstration proves successful, KORR or participants may provide recommendations to the Governor and the General Assembly on eliminating or modifying the waived administrative regulations.​

Before applying to the Sandbox, companies must first discuss their proposal with KORR for a preliminary determination of whether the Sandbox is available for the proposal.
