Administrative Committee of the Federal Register Law and Legal Definition

The Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) was established in 1935 under the Federal Register Act. This was established as a permanent executive/legislative branch authority charged with overseeing the functions of the federal Register publication system. The Administrative Committee of the Federal Register is responsible for the legislative mandates of the Federal public information statutes, including the FRA, the Administrative Procedure Act, and the Freedom of Information Act. The Administrative Committee of the Federal Register maintains a uniform system for filing and publishing regulatory material and Presidential documents, and ensures that the public has ready access to the essential regulatory and organizational information of the United States Government.
