Title 47 of the Code of Federal Regulations is currently being released with the October 2010 publication date and is available from Document Center Inc. 47 CFR is released in 5 books, the most notable being the volume with Parts 0 to 19. That’s because it includes Part 15, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) rules and regulations regarding unlicensed transmissions. Why so widely used? Because nearly every telecommunications device sold in the United States, from medical devices to computers, must comply with Part 15.
The Code of Federal Regulations is the “Compendium” of U.S. regulations. Title 47 is specifically the Telecommunications regulations. Each October 1, all the regulations under the jurisdiction of the FCC (Federal Communications Commission) are “frozen” for publication in this series. Each Part is included in the 5 volumes exactly as it was in force on that date.
Changes can be made to the regulations throughout the year, by the process of being published in the Federal Register. For many folks, its much easier to get the CFR volumes with the regulations that impact them than to try to keep up with the information on a daily basis.
How did the CFR’s come into existence? They’re a result of the Reduction of Paperwork Act.
