Title: Code of Federal Regulations (CFR)

Code of Federal Regulations (CFR)
Contents

Code of Federal Regulations
  • The regulations first published in the Federal
    Register on a daily basis are then codified in
    the Code of Federal Regulations.
  • The regulations that are published
    chronologically in the Federal Register are
    codified and arranged by title, then by chapter
    (one agencys regulations) and finally by subject
    in the CFR.
  • The CFR is divided into 50 titles, just like the
    USCA
  • Some titles covering the same subjects are
    numbered the same in the CFR and in the USCA
    others are not.
  • Each title is divided into chapters, subchapters,
    parts, and sections.
  • A regulation is cited by title, part, and
    section, e.g., 14 CFR
    121.313 (Title 14, Part 121, Section 313).

  • The soft-cover volumes of the CFR are issued each
    year in sets on a staggered, quarterly basis
  • Titles 1 6 are current through January 1
  • Titles 17 27 are current through April 1
  • Titles 29 41 are current through July 1
  • Titles 42 50 are current through October 1
  • Each new set contains the text of all regulations
    in force as of the current through date. New
    regulations are merged with, and revoked
    regulations are deleted from, the previous set of
    regulations.
  • The color of each set of volumes is changed every
    year a current full set may contain different
    colored volumes, depending on the time of the
    year.
  • Title 3, which contains Presidential
    Proclamations and Executive Orders, is always
    white.
