Explanation

THAT THE CODE OF FEDERAL REGULATIONS IS
The Code of Federal Regulations is a codification of the general and permanent
iles published in the Federal Register by the Executive departments and agencies
: the Federal Government. The Code is divided into 50 titles which represent
road areas subject to Federal regulation. Each title is divided into Chapters which
zually bear the name of the issuing agency. Each Chapter is further subdivided
ito Parts covering specific regulatory areas. The individual volumes of the Code
e revised as of January 1 of each year.

EGAL STATUS
The contents of the Federal Register are required to be judicially noticed (44
S.C. 1507). The Code of Federal Regulations is prima facie evidence of the text
f the original documents (44 U.S.C. 1510).

A

OW TO USE THE CODE OF FEDERAL REGULATIONS
The Code of Federal Regulations is kept up to immediate date by the individual
sues of the Federal Register. These two publications must be used together to
etermine the latest version of any given rule. By consulting the “List of CFR Sec-
ons Affected,” which is issued monthly and is cumulative and the "Cumulative
ist of Parts Affected” in the Federal Register, the user of the Code can quickly
etermine whether there have been any amendments since the preceding January 1

the provisions of the Code in which he is interested. These lists will refer the user
the Federal Register in which he may find the latest amendment of any given rule.

FFECTIVE DATES
Each volume of the Code contains amendments published during the preceding
alendar

year. Source citations for the regulations are referred to by volume number nd page number of the Federal Register and date of publication. Publication dates nd effective dates are usually not the same and care must be exercised by the user

determining the actual effective date. In instances where the effective date is eyond the cut-off date for the Code a note has been inserted to reflect the future fective date.

BSOLETE PROVISIONS
Provisions that become obsolete before January 1 are not carried. Code users
lay find the text of provisions in effect on a given date in the past by using the
umerical list of sections affected. For the period before January 1, 1964, the user
hould consult the "List of Sections Affected, 1949–1963* published in a separate
blume. For the period beginning January 1, 1964, a “List of Sections Affected"
published at the end of each book.
