This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) published a final rule in the Federal Register on May 13, 1996 (61 FR 21964), amending its medical regulations in 38 CFR part 17 by making a number of nonsubstantive changes. Specifically, section numbers were redesignated, redundant and obsolete material was removed, certain position and organizational titles were changed, and material previously deleted was restored. The document contained an error in an amendatory instruction. We removed portions of § 17.31 and inadvertently redesignated § 17.31(b)(5) as the new § 17.31, creating two sections for § 17.31. This document will correct that error by removing the second, obsolete § 17.31.
