Subtitle A–Federal Procurement Regulations System (Continued):
The Code of Federal Regulations is a codification of the general and perma nent rules published in the Federal Register by the Executive departments an agencies of the Federal Government. The Code is divided into 50 titles whic represent broad areas subject to Federal regulation. Each title is divided int chapters which usually bear the name of the issuing agency. Each chapter i further subdivided into parts covering specific regulatory areas.
Each volume of the Code is revised at least once each calendar year an issued on a quarterly basis approximately as follows: Title 1 through Title 16..........
as of January Title 17 through Title 27........
as of April Title 28 through Title 41.
as of July Title 42 through Title 50..
as of October The appropriate revision date is printed on the cover of each volume.
The contents of the Federal Register are required to be judicially noticed (4 U.S.C. 1507). The Code of Federal Regulations is prima facie evidence of th text of the original documents (44 U.S.C. 1510).
HOW TO USE THE CODE OF FEDERAL REGULATIONS
The Code of Federal Regulations is kept up to date by the individual issues o the Federal Register. These two publications must be used together to dete mine the latest version of any given rule.
To determine whether a Code volume has been amended since its revisio date (in this case, July 1, 1983), consult the "List of CFR Sections Affecte (LSA),” which is issued monthly, and the “Cumulative List of Parts Affected, which appears in the Reader Aids section of the daily Federal Register. Thes two lists will identify the Federal Register page number of the latest amend ment of any given rule.
EFFECTIVE AND EXPIRATION DATES
Each volume of the Code contains amendments published in the Federal Reg ister since the last revision of that volume of the Code. Source citations for th regulations are referred to by volume number and page number of the Federa Register and date of publication. Publication dates and effective dates are usual ly not the same and care must be exercised by the user in determining th actual effective date. In instances where the effective date is beyond the cut-of date for the Code a note has been inserted to reflect the future effective date In those instances where a regulation published in the Federal Register states
date certain for expiration, an appropriate note will be inserted following the text.
OMB CONTROL NUMBERS
The Paperwork Reduction Act of 1980 (Pub. L. 96-511) requires Federal agencies to take steps to reduce the Federal paperwork burden for individuals, small businesses and State and local governments, as well as to maximize the usefulness of information collection. One specific requirement of the Act is for Federal agencies to display an OMB control number with the information collection request.
Many agencies have begun publishing numerous OMB control numbers as amendments to existing regulations in the CFR. These OMB numbers are placed as close as possible to the applicable recordkeeping or reporting requirements.
Provisions that become obsolete before the revision date stated on the cover of each volume are not carried. Code users may find text of provisions in effect on a given date in the past by using the appropriate numerical list of sections affected. For the period before January 1, 1973, consult either the List of CFR Sections Affected, 1949-1963, or 1964-1972, published in three separate volumes. For the period beginning January 1, 1973, a “List of CFR Sections Affected” is published at the end of each CFR volume.
CFR INDEXES AND TABULAR GUIDES
A subject index to the Code of Federal Regulations is contained in a separate volume, revised annually as of January 1, entitled CFR INDEX AND FINDING AIDS. This volume contains the Parallel Table of Statutory Authorities and Agency Rules (Table I), and Acts Requiring Publication in the Federal Register (Table III). A list of CFR Titles, Chapters, and Parts and an alphabetical list of agencies publishing in the CFR are also included in this volume.
An index to the text of Presidential documents appears at the end of each compilation of Title 3, The President.
The Federal Register Index is issued monthly in cumulative form. This index is based on a consolidation of the “Contents" entries in the daily Federal Register.
A List of CFR Sections Affected (LSA) is published monthly, keyed to the revision dates of the 50 CFR titles.
