Federal Register Notices

The Federal Register is a daily publication that provides a uniform system for publishing Presidential and Federal agency documents. It is published on all official U.S. Government workdays. It is the means by which rules and regulations are codified into the Code of Federal Regulations. Also, Federal Register notices can announce: meetings, availability of applications, grant applications deadlines, availability of environmental impact statements, information collection requests, etc.

A rule (also called a regulation or rulemaking) is a document published in the Federal Register to implement or interpret law or policy. A rule is generally published first as a proposed rule and then as a final rule. Once a rule is published in final, it is codified in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) and remains in effect until it is modified by publication of another rule.
