Q. Where can I find regulations and rules?
Notices, proposed rules, final rules, and more can be found in the daily Federal Register. Federalregister.gov is a “Web 2.0” version of the Federal Register. Comments on proposed rules can be submitted via Federalregister.gov or Regulations.gov. The Code of Federal Regulations is the codification of permanent rules. An electronic version can be accessed through e-CFR.
The National Archives and Records Administration's (NARA) website provides a list of Federal Register publications that can help users locate documents.
For older federal regulations, the Law Library of Congress offers a guide to researching and tracing back regulations within the Federal Register. The Government Publication Office has older Federal Registers beginning in 1936. The Library of Congress also has a collection of digitized Federal Registers.
Additional information about the Federal Register is available through NARA'S Office of the Federal Register.
