Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Government Printing Office
The CFR is a subject arrangement of the rules and regulations of all federal agencies. It is made up of 50 subject titles, and is arranged by agency. An agency's chapter is divided into subchapters, parts, subparts, and sections, searchable by keyword. This online version covers 1996 and following. You can also search specific sections for regulations since 1997. Regulations on a designated subject are often, but not always, in the same numbered title of the CFR as laws on that same subject are in the U.S. Code.
