LSC Regulations

This page contains links to the LSC regulations as published on the e-CFR page for LSC by the U.S. Government Printing Office and the Office of the Federal Register, National Archives and Records Administration.  Regulations under revision by LSC appear in the Rulemaking page.

PLEASE NOTE—due to the government shutdown, the e-CFR and federalregister.gov stopped updating on December 21, 2018. The Federal Register is only publishing limited notices that are available in print format PDFs posted at the Federal Register page of govinfo.gov.  LSC will publish current rules here, including those that are pending publication in the Federal Register.

LSC also provides all the Federal Register notices in the Regulatory History page for each regulation and additional materials from recent rulemakings on the Closed Rulemaking page.
