Code of Federal Regulations
Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) is the codification of the general and
permanent rules published in the Federal Register by the executive departments
and agencies of the Federal Government. It is divided into 50 titles that
represent broad areas subject to Federal regulation. Each volume of the
CFR is updated once each calendar year and is issued on a quarterly basis.
Titles 1-16 are updated as of January 1st
Titles 17-27 are updated as of April 1st
Titles 28-41 are updated as of July 1st
Titles 42-50 are updated as of October 1st
Each title is divided into chapters, which usually bear the name of the
issuing agency. Each chapter is further subdivided into parts that cover
specific regulatory areas. Large parts may be subdivided into subparts.
All parts are organized in sections, and most citations in the CFR are
provided at the section level.
Federal statutes furnish the authority and the limits for regulations that
appear in the CFR. This means that the regulations on a subject should be read
together with any pertinent portions of the U.S. Code. [U.S. Code]
It also means that courts will, upon occasion, hold that regulations which appear in the
Code of Federal Regulations are invalid because they conflict with a Federal statute.
This front-end to the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) is generated from and links to the most recent version of the CFR placed on the Internet by the Government Printing Office. It contains the federal regulations in force as of specific revision dates which vary from title to title. That for each title is shown on its table of contents.
The Electronic Code of Federal Regulations (e-CFR) is a currently updated version of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). It is not an official legal edition of the CFR. The e-CFR is an editorial compilation of CFR material and Federal Register amendments produced by the National Archives and Records Administration's Office of the Federal Register (OFR) and the Government Printing Office. The OFR updates the material in the e-CFR on a daily basis.
Published by the Office of the Federal Register, National Archives and Records Administration (NARA), the Federal Register is the official daily publication for rules, proposed rules, and notices of Federal agencies and organizations, as well as executive orders and other presidential documents. Includes 1994 - 2011.
