This is one of two books which constitute Title 46—Shipping, Part 146
to End, revised as of January 1, 1958. These two books replace the single
volume entitled “Title 46—Shipping, Part 146 to End, Revised 1953” and
become an integral part of the Code of Federal Regulations. In con-
solidating the material contained in the 1953 revision with subsequent
changes and additions, there have been included all rules and regulations,
general and permanent in nature, duly promulgated on or before December
31, 1957, and effective as to facts arising on and after January 1, 1958.

This volume is provided with a pocket for the insertion of cumulative
supplements which will be issued semiannually. It also contains a subject
index, and a list of sections affected which provides Federal Register cita-
tions to all changes in Parts 146 to 149 since January 1, 1949, including
those which are no longer in effect.
This book is published pursuant to Part 2 of the regulations of the Admin-
istrative Committee 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 (f) of the Federal Register Act as amended (67
Stat. 388; 44 U. S. C. 311 (f)). The contents of the Federal Register
and of the Code of Federal Regulations are by law prima facie evidence
of the text of the original documents and are required to be judicially
noticed (49 Stat. 502, 67 Stat. 388; 44 U. S. C. 307, 311 (e)). The
approved citation of the Code is "CFR.” Thus the citation “46 CFR
146.01-1” refers to section 146.01–1 of this title.
A General Preface to the Code of Federal Regulations appears in the
volume containing Titles 1–3 and also in the General Index volume.
