Regulations.gov is a website from the United States federal government for helping citizens access documents describing federal regulations. Government agencies post notices, rules, proposed rules and requests for comment on the site. Users can search by timeframe, keyword and type of document.
The Regulations.gov API provides developers with access to the same information on the website in a programmatic interface. Search documents, retrieve specific dockets or get document information. Developers can filter search results by date, agency, docket ID and comment period.
The full documentation is available on the site as a PDF linked from the footer. The API returns data as XML or JSON and requires an API Key available upon request.
The following is a list of historical changes that were made to this asset. Typically,
once an API is published on ProgrammableWeb.com, the data we keep about that asset gets updated over the course of its life. For example, the endpoint or home page of the documentation might change.
As a means of enforcing the integrity of our data, every time a non-trivial change is made to the data we keep about an asset,
we require the entry of some changelog text before that change can be saved. This way, we have a great audit trail of all
activity surrounding the asset. For each asset, the changelogs begins with the moment an asset is approved for publication on ProgrammableWeb.
If you spot an error in our data and believe that a record needs to be updated in some way,
