Final rules (Federal Register)

Federal agency final rules and regulations that have general applicability and legal effect. The Rules and Regulations section of the Federal Register also includes interim rules that are issued without prior notice and are effective immediately. An interim rule is usually issued in response to an emergency situation and is usually followed by a document that affirms the interim rule as a final rule and incorporates any changes made following the issuance of the interim rule.
