About | OpenRegs.com

OpenRegs.com is an alternative to the federal government’s Regulations.govregulatory dockets database. That site can be confusing and difficult to use for average citizens and experts alike. The goal of OpenRegs.com is to make the proposed and final regulations published in the Federal Register easy to find and discuss, so that citizens can become better informed and more involved in the regulatory process.

OpenRegs.com also has features not available anywhere else. These include the ability to browse by, and subscribe to, individual agencies and topics codes. Also available are discussion forums for each agency and each regulation, user-submitted related links, and much more.

Please note, though, that using OpenRegs.com is not a substitute for visitingRegulations.gov. That site is ultimately the official site. Also, if you want to see comments filed with agencies in a particular regulatory proceeding, you’ll have to visitRegulations.gov or the agency’s own site. OpenRegs.com should serve as the launching pad, research portal, and discussion community for your regulatory adventures.

Check out their new, FREE iPhone app, which will allow you to take the Federal Register with you wherever you go.
