Executive Orders are official documents that the President issues to manage the operations of the federal government. The text of an Executive Order first appears in the Federal Register. Beginning with Executive Order 7316 of March 13, 1936, the text also appears in the annual edition of Title 3 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR).
Executive Orders are codified (arranged by subject instead of date) in the Codification of Presidential Proclamations and Executive Orders. Unfortunately, this codification has not been updated since 1989. The current status of an Executive Order can be found easily by using the Executive Orders Dispositions Tables (covers EOs from 1937 to 2017) and Executive Order Disposition Tables (covers EOs from 1994 to present).
