I'm researching a federal regulation. Where do I start?

Federal regulations are rules created by agencies, boards, or commissions that carry the force of law. The Law Library of Congress has published an online research guide with information on where to find federal rules and instructions for tracing the origins and history of federal rules. Researchers can visit How to Trace Federal Regulations: A Beginner's Guide to start their research.
