DC Municipal Regulations and Register

The DC Office of Documents and Administrative Issuances publishes and certifies the District of Columbia Municipal Regulations (DCMR) and the District of Columbia Register (DCR).


District of Columbia Municipal Regulations

The DCMR is the official compilation of the permanent rules, statements, and legal documents circulated by DC government executive agencies and departments, the Council of the District of Columbia, and independent entities.

The DCMR contains 31 titles and all are available at DC Register.


District of Columbia Register

The DCR is the weekly official legal bulletin published by the DC government and is the temporary supplement to the DCMR. The District of Columbia Register (DCR) since October 1, 2009 is available at DC Register.
