A statute is the law as it was passed by the U.S. Congress or a state legislature. When a law is codified, the provisions of laws are arranged by topic and all superseded or repealed sections of the code are removed.
Regulations are the detailed rules that outline how statutes will be enforced and have the force of law. While legislative bodies write statutory law, administrative agencies of the executive branch of government produce regulations.
A few government agencies have the responsibility to write the regulations and enforce most of the laws affecting employee benefits.
