There are many ways to find federal regulations. Which method you use depends on what information you have about the regulation you are trying to locate. For example, you might have a C.F.R. citation, or a citation to a relevant statute, or just the general subject of the regulation.
You will often have to begin your research for federal regulations based on nothing more than a specific topic. When that is the case, you have several options:
- You can do a full-text search on FDSys, Lexis, Westlaw, or Bloomberg Law;
- You can use the print C.F.R. index; or
- You can use the C.F.R. index on Westlaw
