The Office of the Federal Register presents this revised edition of the "Document Drafting Handbook.” This edition replaces the handbook published June 1980. The updated requirements in this handbook reflect recent changes in regulatory development procedures, document format, and printing technology
The handbook is designed to help Federal agencies prepare documents for publication in the Federal Register.
We have attempted to present the information in this handbook in a functional manner. The material has been divided into segments that allow the user to identify the information necessary to solve a particular problem.
Editors of this handbook were Robert D. Fox, Roy Nanovic, and Ernie Sowada.
This handbook is issued under the Federal Register Act (44 U.S.C. Chapter 15) and the regulations of the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (1 CFR 15.10). Inquiries and comments should be addressed to the Office of the Federal Register, National Archives and Records Administration, Washington, DC 20408.
