Rules and Regulations

The FCC rules and regulations are codified in Title 47 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). They are initially published in the Federal Register. After October 1 of each year, the GPO compiles all the changes, additions, and deletions to the FCC rules and publishes an updated CFR. This page links to the October 1, 2014 edition.

The links are provided here for your convenience.

The FCC does not maintain a database of its rules nor does it print or stock copies of the rules and regulations. To order a copy of Title 47 of the Code of Federal Regulations or to subscribe to the Federal Register visit GPO Ordering Information.

You can also check the Federal Register to review rule changes since October 1, 2014. You can also view an electronic version of the most current CFR (eCFR). Please note, however, that this site contains this user notice:

The Electronic Code of Federal Regulations (e-CFR) is a current, daily updated version of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). It is not an official legal edition of the CFR. The e-CFR is an unofficial editorial compilation of CFR material and Federal Register amendments.
