Code of Federal Regulations (C.F.R.)

Code of Federal Regulations (C.F.R.) 
The “Code of Federal Regulations” (C.F.R.) consists of the administrative laws that promulgate the United States Code (U.S.C.). The U.S.C. is created by Congress and is subordinate only to the Constitution. The C.F.R. is subordinate to the U.S.C., and is created by the various executive departments and agencies to which Congress delegates limited rule-making authority. When a department or agency proposes new regulations, they are published in the Federal Register for notice and comment. Temporary and final regulations are then published in the Federal Register again, and ultimately compiled in the C.F.R.

[The official e-CFR is available online here, and is typically updated within two days after changes become effective. Cornell University Law School’s Legal Information Institute also hosts the full text of the C.F.R. here.]
