    to abide by

    There are some certain rules to abide by,
    or
    There are some certain rules to be abided by,

    I can't tell which one is correct so I'd appreciate if you clarify.

    Thanks in advance.

    The passive is possible, though not common: Some/certain rules must be abided by.
