  • John Hyrum Martinez, Director of the Publications and Services Division, Office of the Federal Register, National Archives and Records Administration


Curious about Federal regulations and where to find them? The Office of the Federal Register provides an overview of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). It is appropriate for anyone who ever gets questions about: food labelling requirements, cosmetic ingredients, Fair Labor standards, oil drilling regulations, the Physician Fee Schedule, pesticide tolerances, net neutrality, Presidential proclamations and Executive Orders, and so much more. The CFR is the codification of the general and permanent rules published in the Federal Register by the departments and agencies of the Federal Government. This webinar covers the historical background and purpose of the CFR and its associated finding aids.
