Explanation

The Code of Federal Regulations is a codification of the general and permanent rules published in the Federal Register by the Executive departments and agencies of the Federal Government. The Code is divided into 50 titles which represent broad areas subject to Federal regulation. Each title is divided into Chapters which usually bear the name of the issuing agency. Each Chapter is further subdivided into Parts covering specific regulatory areas. ISSUE DATES

Each volume of the Code is revised at least once each calendar year and issued on a quarterly basis approximately as follows: Title 1 through Title 16 --

as of January 1 Title 17 through Title 27

as of April 1 Title 28 through Title 41

--as of July 1 Title 42 through Title 50..

--as of October 1 Users of the Code should consult the cover of each volume to determine the revision date.

LEGAL STATUS

The contents of the Federal Register are required to be judicially noticed (44 U.S.C. 1507). The Code of Federal Regulations is prima facie evidence of the 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 of the Federal Register. These two publications must be used together to determine the latest version of any given rule.

To determine whether there have been any amendments since the revision date of the Code volume in which the user is interested in this case, July 1, 1974) the following two lists must be consulted: the cumulative “List of CFR Sections Affected” issued monthly and the “Cumulative List of Parts Affected” which appears daily in the Federal Register. These two lists will refer the user to the Federal Register page where he may find the latest amendment of any given rule. EFFECTIVE DATES

Each volume of the Code contains amendments published in the Federal Register since the last revision of that volume of the Code. Source citations for the regulations are referred to by volume number and page number of the Federal Register and date of publication. Publication dates and effective dates are usually not the same and care must be exercised by the user in determining the actual effective date. In instances where the effective date is beyond the cut-off date for the Code a note has been inserted to reflect the future effective date.

Provisions that become obsolete before the revision date stated on the cov each volume are not carried. Code users may find the text of provisions in effe a given date in the past by using the numerical list of sections affected. For the p before January 1, 1964, the user should consult the "List of Sections Affected, 1 1963" published in a separate volume. For the period beginning January 1, 19 “List of CFR Sections Affected” is published at the end of each book. GENERAL INDEX
