Admiralty & Maritime Law: Federal Regulations

Resources for researching the admiralty and maritime law of the United States.

Code of Federal Regulations and the Federal Register

A Regulation is a source of law that the thorough researcher will not overlook.  Generally speaking, executive agencies are, by statute, delegated sufficient authority to promulgate regulations in order to effectively enforce certain related statutes.  Research federal regulations dealing with admiralty and related issues with the following resources:

 

Code of Federal Regulations

 

Title 33:  Navigation and Navigable Waters

 

Title 46:  Shipping

 

Electronic Code of Federal Regulations (e-CFR)
