Federal Register in XML

Metadata Updated: February 3, 2018

The Federal Register is the official daily publication for rules, proposed rules, and notices of Federal agencies and organizations, as well as executive orders and other presidential documents. Published by the Office of the Federal Register (OFR), National Archives and Records Administration (NARA), it is updated daily and is available Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays. GPO's Federal Digital System (FDsys) contains Federal Register issues from 1994 to the present. The current XML data set is not yet an official format of the Federal Register. Only the PDF and Text versions have legal status as parts of the official online format of the Federal Register. The XML-structured files are derived from SGML-tagged data and printing codes, which may produce anomalies in display. In addition, the XML data does not yet include image files. Users who require a higher level of assurance may wish to consult the official version of the Federal Register on FDsys.gov. The FDsys data set includes digitally signed Federal Register PDF files, which may be relied upon as evidence in a court of law.
