The federal Justice Department’s Consolidated Regulations are organized by regulation title. So how do you find all of the regulations passed under a given statute?
Well, there are a couple of ways, the simplest of which is to go to the act itself in the Consolidated Acts, and select the first letter of the title in the A-Z menu. The left-hand column lists all the acts beginning with that letter, along with their chapter number –
and the right-hand column has PDF links to the acts and little yellow “R” boxes. Any guesses what the R stands for?
Good guess! R is for Regulations. Clicking on the yellow box will take you directly to a complete list of the regulations made under that act. If you scroll up from the list, you will find the main Table of Contents for the act – so a second way to see the regulations would be to open the act directly and scroll down.
