Web Site:

This site contains the official U.S. government Federal Register (FR) as published by GPO. Online databases are provided for the 1995, 1996, and 1997 FR (Volumes 60, 61, and 62). FR sections include: Contents and Preliminary Pages; Final Rules and Regulations; Proposed Rules; Notices; Presidential Documents; Sunshine Act Meetings; Reader Aids; and Corrections.

          Since the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) is updated only once a year, the FR should be used to stay current (the online FR is updated daily - providing the most up-to-date system available).

          As an example, when working on 40 CFR Part 265 and using the CFR as a regulations source, there should be a check of the FR to see if any new changes have been published in the FR since 40 CFR Part 265 was last posted online. If the look back period is to July 1, 1997 simply select "1997 Federal Register", and if looking for final regulations select "Final Rules and Regulations", under "Issue Date" type in 07/01/97 to "current date" (date range since the last CFR update), under "Search Terms" type in "40 cfr part 265", and submit query. The hits will include all revisions to 40 CFR Part 265 since the CFR was last posted online (matching what's published in the List of CFR Sections Affected) - thereby providing up-to-date and comprehensive coverage. Note that FR sections that simply reference 40 CFR Part 265 (versus revising it) are also referenced in the query results. Subject based searches are also available.

          Searches at this site are significantly faster during low traffic periods - such as when the West Coast has not started the work day. Alternative GPO FR sites may provide faster searches and are available through Federal Depository Library Gateways. An example gateway is referenced in this category of EnviroSources - see "Federal Register - University of California Official Site". GPO plans to add more speed to the existing service.
