How do I refine my search and build a multi-term search query in the CFR?


Field Search

When searching for a title number or name, part number or name, or even a section, you could get several hits in your search results because a title or part appears several times in multiple volumes across multiple years. Therefore, it is best to refine your search as best as you can, to target the results.

In the below examples, we will search for the section 160.204 in Title 33, Part 160 that displays the inclusion of Ammonium Nitrate in the Definitions. We know the final rule was in place during 2005, thus we’ll narrow our search to 2005.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Advanced Search

Using the Advanced Search option, we can add more than 3 fields to our query to refine our search. In the below example, we’re searching for Ammonium Nitrate in Title 33, Part 160, Section 160.204 during 2005.
