This book containing Title 31, revised as of January 1, 1965, is one of two
books which replaces the single volume entitled “Title 30—Mineral Re-
sources, and Title 31—Money and Finance: Treasury, Revised as of Jan-
uary 1, 1959," and becomes an integral part of the Code of Federal
The text in this revision is derived from the latest text of the rules and
regulations, general and permanent in nature, duly promulgated in the
Federal Register on or before December 31, 1964. Source materials from
which the text is derived are cited with the text and should be consulted to
determine the effective date of any given provision. All dates appearing
in the source citations are dates of publication in the Federal Register and
should not be construed as effective dates.
Current regulatory material appearing in the daily issues of the Federal
Register follows the numbering system used herein and serves as a daily
supplement hereto. This book contains the following finding aids: a list of
current CFR volumes; a list of superseded CFR volumes; a table of CFR
titles and chapters; an alphabetical list of CFR subtitles and chapters; and
a list of sections affected which furnishes Federal Register citations to all
changes in Title beginning January 1, 1964, including changes which are
no longer in effect.
A compilation of the list of sections affected for the entire Code of Federal
Regulations from January 1, 1949, through December 31, 1963, is published
in a separate volume entitled “List of Sections Affected, 1949–1963."
A General Explanation of the Code of Federal Regulations appears in
the volume containing Titles 1-4, in the General Index volume, and in the
volume entitled “List of Sections Affected, 1949–1963."
This volume is published pursuant to Part 30 of the regulations of the
Administrative Committee of the Federal Register revised August 18, 1964
(29 F.R. 11790; 1 CFR Part 30), under the authority contained in section
11 of the Federal Register Act (67 Stat. 388, as amended; 44 U.S.C. 311).
The contents of the Federal Register and the Code of Federal Regulations
are by law prima facie evidence of the text of the original documents and
are required to be judicially noticed (49 Stat. 502, 67 Stat. 388; 44 U.S.C.
307, 311). The approved citation of the Code is "CFR.” Thus the citation
“31 CFR 1.1” refers to section 1.1 of this Title.
