The Code of Federal Regulations, 1949 Edition, contains a codification of the Federal administrative rules and regulations, general and permanent in nature, duly promulgated on or before December 31, 1948, and effective as to facts arising on and after January 1, 1949. This is the second edition of the Code of Federal Regulations. The first edition, similar in scope and arrangement, was compiled as of June 1, 1938. Reference to the first edition and the supplements thereto should be made for Federal administrative rules affecting facts or circumstances which arose prior to January 1, 1949.
Current regulatory material appearing in the daily issues of the Federal Register is keyed to this second edition and serves as a daily supplement to the Code. Each book of this second edition is provided with a pocket for the insertion of the annual cumulative supplement thereto. Each book also contains a special subject index. The General Index to the entire edition is published in a separate volume together with the General Preface to the 1949 Edition and a reprint of the general preface to the first edition of the Code of Federal Regulations.
This book contains the rules and regulations constituting Title 20 of the Code of Federal Regulations, 1949 Edition. Each section of the Code is accompanied by a citation of the source document and of the specific authority under which it was prescribed. All citations of statutory authority and of statutes interpreted or applied by the codified material are tabulated under Title 2 in this edition. This tabulation is designed to lead users from the Federal statutes codified in the United States Code to the related administrative legislation codified in this edition of the Code of Federal Regulations. Title 3 of this edition consists of a tabulation of Proclamations, Executive orders, and similar documents promulgated by the President, which are cited or otherwise included in the 1949 Edition. Title 3 therefore serves as a guide leading from such Presidential documents to related or dependent codified material.
The 1949 Edition is published as a special edition of the Federal Register, dated January 1, 1949, pursuant to Part 2 of the regulations of the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register, approved by the President October 11, 1948 (13 F. R. 5935; 1 CFR Part 2) under the authority contained in section 11 (d) of the Federal Register Act as amended (50 Stat. 305; 44 U. S. C. 311 (d)). The contents of the Federal Register and of this Code are by law prima facie evidence of the text of the original documents and are required to be judicially noticed (49 Stat. 502, 50 Stat. 304; 44 U. S. C. 307, 311 (c)).
This edition should be cited “CFR.” Thus the approved abbreviated citation of § 01.1 in Title 20 hereof would be “20 CFR 01.1."
