Beta eCFR Comment Period

The Office of the Federal Register is developing a new Electronic Code of Federal Regulations (eCFR) website, and the Illinois Tech community is invited to review the beta site.

New features include the ability to:

  • Show which sections have been recently updated.
  • Display historical versions of text.
  • Compare different versions of the text.
  • Link references between content within the CFR and to the Federal Register.
  • Link references within the content to the United States Code.
  • Jump directly to text by entering a citation in the “Go to CFR Reference” box.
  • Create a My eCFR account to receive notifications when selected areas of the eCFR are updated.

In addition, the text is presented in a new, more readable format with the ability to create links to lower levels of the codification.

The “Getting Started” page is recommended for a more comprehensive introduction to the main features of the new site.

If you have a question or comment about the website, click the Help Button (lower right-hand corner of every page). Suggestions to improve the website are welcome.

The new site is available at: (The current site remains available at

No end date for the comment period has been publicized.
