Preface

The Code of Federal Regulations, 1949 Edition, contains a codification of the
Federal administrative rules and regulations, general and permanent in nature, duly
promulgated on or before December 31, 1948, and effective as to facts arising on
and after January 1, 1949. This is the second edition of the Code of Federal
Regulations. The first edition, similar in scope and arrangement, was compiled
as of June 1, 1938. Reference to the first edition and the supplements thereto
should be made for Federal administrative rules affecting facts or circumstances
which arose prior to January 1, 1949.

Current regulatory material appearing in the daily issues of the Federal Register
is keyed to this second edition and serves as a daily supplement to the Code. Each
book of this second edition is provided with a pocket for the insertion of the annual
cumulative supplement thereto. Each book also contains a special subject index.
The General Index to the entire edition is published in a separate volume together
with the General Preface to the 1949 Edition and a reprint of the general preface
to the first edition of the Code of Federal Regulations.

This book contains the rules and regulations constituting Titles 40, 41, and 42 of

the Code of Federal Regulations, 1949 Edition. Each section of the Code is accom-

panied by a citation of the source document and of the specific authority under

which it was prescribed. All citations of statutory authority and of statutes inter-

preted or applied by the codified material are tabulated under Title 2 in this

edition. This tabulation is designed to lead users from the Federal statutes codified

in the United States Code to the related administrative legislation codified in this

edition of the Code of Federal Regulations. Title 3 of this edition consists of a

tabulation of Proclamations, Executive orders, and similar documents promulgated

by the President, which are cited or otherwise included in the 1949 Edition. Title

3 therefore serves as a guide leading from such Presidential documents to related or

dependent codified material.

The 1949 Edition is published as a special edition of the Federal Register, dated

January 1, 1949, pursuant to Part 2 of the regulations of the Administrative Com-

mittee of the Federal Register approved by the President October 11, 1948 (13

F. R. 5935; 1 CFR Part 2), under the authority contained in section 11 (d) of the

Federal Register Act, as amended (50 Stat. 305; 44 U. S. C. 311 (d)). The con-

tents of the Federal Register and of this Code are by law prima facie evidence of

the text of the original documents and are required to be judicially noticed (49

Stat. 502, 50 Stat. 304; 44 U.S. C. 307,311 (c)).

This edition should be cited “CFR.” Thus the approved abbreviated citation
of 1.1 Title 40 hereof would be "40 CFR 1.1."
