A Key Information Resource: The Code of Federal Regulations

Are you interested in fully understanding the business of Government? One key information resource of the Federal Government is the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). Departments and agencies across the entire Federal Government update changes documented under fifty different subjects and routinely publish those changes as a series of updated rules and regulations that drive their respective public programs.

The CFR is an annual codification of the general and permanent rules published by executive departments and agencies of the Federal Government. CFRs present official and complete text of agency regulations in one organized publication that provides a comprehensive and convenient reference for anyone needing to know the text of the general and permanent Federal regulations.

The CFR is divided into 50 titles representing broad areas subject to Federal regulation such as Domestic Security, Agriculture, Banking and Finance, Aerospace and more. Public administrators make sure this critical information is always up-to-date.
