198 Wayfinding and Signing Guidelines for Airport Terminals and Landside 8.1.2 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) This is the codification of the general and permanent rules published in the Federal Regis- ter by the executive departments and agencies of the Federal Government. The CFR is divided into 50 titles that represent broad areas subject to Federal regulation.
