TITLE 44 - PUBLIC PRINTING AND DOCUMENTS

CHAPTER 15 - FEDERAL REGISTER AND CODE OF FEDERAL REGULATIONS

-HEAD-

Sec. 1505. Documents to be published in Federal Register

-STATUTE-

(a) Proclamations and Executive Orders; Documents Having General

Applicability and Legal Effect; Documents Required To Be Published

by Congress. There shall be published in the Federal Register -

(1) Presidential proclamations and Executive orders, except

those not having general applicability and legal effect or

effective only against Federal agencies or persons in their

capacity as officers, agents, or employees thereof;

(2) documents or classes of documents that the President may

determine from time to time have general applicability and legal

effect; and

(3) documents or classes of documents that may be required so

to be published by Act of Congress.

For the purposes of this chapter every document or order which

prescribes a penalty has general applicability and legal effect.

(b) Documents Authorized To Be Published by Regulations; Comments

and News Items Excluded. In addition to the foregoing there shall

also be published in the Federal Register other documents or

classes of documents authorized to be published by regulations

prescribed under this chapter with the approval of the President,

but comments or news items of any character may not be published in

the Federal Register.

(c) Suspension of Requirements for Filing of Documents; Alternate

Systems for Promulgating, Filing, or Publishing Documents;

Preservation of Originals. In the event of an attack or threatened

attack upon the continental United States and a determination by

the President that as a result of an attack or threatened attack -

(1) publication of the Federal Register or filing of documents

with the Office of the Federal Register is impracticable, or

(2) under existing conditions publication in the Federal

Register would not serve to give appropriate notice to the public

of the contents of documents, the President may, without regard

to any other provision of law, suspend all or part of the

requirements of law or regulation for filing with the Office or

publication in the Federal Register of documents or classes of

documents.

The suspensions shall remain in effect until revoked by the

President, or by concurrent resolution of the Congress. The

President shall establish alternate systems for promulgating,

filing, or publishing documents or classes of documents affected by

such suspensions, including requirements relating to their

effectiveness or validity, that may be considered under the then

existing circumstances practicable to provide public notice of the

issuance and of the contents of the documents. The alternate

systems may, without limitation, provide for the use of regional or

specialized publications or depositories for documents, or of the

press, the radio, or similar mediums of general communication.

Compliance with alternate systems of filing or publication shall

have the same effect as filing with the Office or publication in

the Federal Register under this chapter or other law or regulation.

With respect to documents promulgated under alternate systems, each

agency shall preserve the original and two duplicate originals or

two certified copies for filing with the Office when the President

determines that it is practicable.

Sec. 1507. Filing document as constructive notice; publication in

citation

-STATUTE-

A document required by section 1505(a) of this title to be

published in the Federal Register is not valid as against a person

who has not had actual knowledge of it until the duplicate

originals or certified copies of the document have been filed with

the Office of the Federal Register and a copy made available for

public inspection as provided by section 1503 of this title. Unless

otherwise specifically provided by statute, filing of a document,

required or authorized to be published by section 1505 of this

title, except in cases where notice by publication is insufficient

in law, is sufficient to give notice of the contents of the

document to a person subject to or affected by it. The publication

in the Federal Register of a document creates a rebuttable

presumption -

(1) that it was duly issued, prescribed, or promulgated;

(2) that it was filed with the Office of the Federal Register

and made available for public inspection at the day and hour

stated in the printed notation;

(3) that the copy contained in the Federal Register is a true

copy of the original; and

(4) that all requirements of this chapter and the regulations

prescribed under it relative to the document have been complied

with.

The contents of the Federal Register shall be judicially noticed

and without prejudice to any other mode of citation, may be cited

by volume and page number.

is insufficient in law, when the notice is published in the Federal

Register at such a time that the period between the publication and

the date fixed in the notice for the hearing or for the termination
