The (Public Link) Office of the Federal Register (F) maintains the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), which is the complete body of the rules and regulations issued by Executive Branch departments and agencies. Agencies update their regulations in the CFR by publishing proposed changes in the Federal Register, a daily gazette issued by the Office of the Federal Register for public comment. Agencies then respond to the public comments and publish final rules in the Federal Register.
The President publishes orders, proclamations, and other official Presidential actions in the Federal Register, as well.
Also, agencies take advantage of the availability of this daily Government publication to publish notices of public interest in the Federal Register.
The Federal Register has been published since 1935 and the CFR was established in 1937. There is an average of 150 documents in each issue.
