The Rules Committee is responsible for crafting the official rules of the Republican Party, including the rules that govern the Republican National Convention. It is different from the RNC Standing Committee on Rules.

The temporary rules are sent to the following convention’s committee 30 days prior to the date of the convention itself along with a list of changes to the rules recommended by the Republican National Committee’s Standing Committee on Rules. Only the convention Rules Committee has the authority to set convention rules, and it has the power to decide for itself whether or not to adopt the changes recommended by the RNC’s Standing Committee on Rules.

The full name of the Rules Committee is the Convention Committee on Rules and Order of Business. It is one of four major committees that holds meetings at the Republicans’ quadrennial conventions. The other three are the Credentials Committee, the Platform Committee, and the Permanent Organization Committee. Source
