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 Subtitle A and Chapter
I of Title 7 of the Code of Federal Regulations, 1949 Edison. Each section of
the Code is accompanied 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 interpreted 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 docu-
ments to related or dependent codified material.
The 1949 edition is published pursuant to Part 2 of the regulations of the
Administrative 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 (d) of the Federal Register Act as amended (50 Stat. 305; 44 U.S. C.
311 (d)). The contents 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 in Title 7 hereof would be "7 CFR 1.1”.
