OpenRegs.com is an alternative to the federal government's Regulations.gov regulatory 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. Also available user-submitted related links and much more. We hope you'll explore the site and join the conversation.
Please note, though, that using OpenRegs.com is not a substitute for visiting Regulations.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 visit Regulations.gov or the agency's own site. OpenRegs.com should serve as the launching pad, research portal, and discussion community for your regulatory adventures. Enjoy!
OpenRegs.com is an easy-to-navigate regulatory portal. Every day, federal agencies issue dozens of rules that affect you, your business, and your family. We make it easy to keep track of proposed and final regulations and to submit comments to the agencies. Learn more
