Regulations

Regulations are the rules set by executive agencies to specify how laws in Congress are to be executed.

  • Regulations are first proposed by the agency and listed in the Federal Register and at Regulations.gov for public comment.
  • The agency considers the comments, makes any necessary revisions, and then sets a final rule that is recorded in the Code of Federal Regulations.
  • The agency then works to ensure compliance and enforcement of those regulations.
