The regulations issued by Federal agencies are contained in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), which consists of 50 "titles" covering broad subject areas.  The alcohol, tobacco, and other regulations administered by TTB are contained in Title 27, Chapter I, of the Code of Federal Regulations (27 CFR Chapter I).  Each title of the CFR is divided into "chapters," then "parts," which cover a more particular subject.  Each part is further divided into "sections" containing specific regulations.

You may search, view, and print each part of 27 CFR Chapter I, or a single section of a part, free of charge using the online "e-CFR"* which is updated continually and contains the most current version of the TTB regulations.

* While the e-CFR contains an accurate version of all Federal regulations, the e-CFR is not considered to be the official version of the Code of Federal Regulations.  The official paper version of the TTB regulations in 27 CFR Chapter I is updated annually on April 1st.  Through the Federal Digital System (FDsys), you may search, view, and print the official annual edition of 27 CFR Chapter I online at no charge, or you may purchase paper copies of the annual edition from the United States Government Printing Office.  Regulatory changes made during the year after April 1st are published in the daily Federal Register, viewable and searchable here and here.
