Federal Regulations: Sources for Regulations

Federal Register

The Federal Register is updated daily.  It is also indexed monthly and the monthly indexes cumulate throughout the year.  Includes all federal regulations required by Congress to be published as well as Presidential proclamations and executive orders. Each issue contains a comprehensive contents section listing by agency all documents in that issue and a guide noting which regulations were affected by these documents.  There are several ways to access the Federal Register and/or search its contents.  See the links below for more information.

Code of Federal Regulations

The Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) presents a codification of the regulations published in the Federal Register.  The CFR is divided into 50 titles (broad subject areas). Each title is in turn divided into chapters generally corresponding to issuing agencies, and into parts. An “index volume” arranged by subject and agency names identifies the appropriate title and part for the user.
