The Application Programming Interface (API) is a web service for accessing data from By adding parameters to the base API URL (,
users can request Document Search results or metadata for a specific Docket or Document.
The data is output in XML and JSON formats, which can be used for data analyses, building
custom reports, integrations, and other programmatic access to data.

 Available APIs
 API                           Base URL
 Document Search     
 Get Docket Information
 Get Document Information
 Note: In order to use the API URLs, an API Key is required. See the first section of
 this document for how to obtain an API Key.

Any of the above APIs can be used with JSON output by replacing “.xml’ at the end with
“.json”, will produce JSON output for search.

How do I become authorized to access the API?
In order to use the API, an API Key is needed, which is provided upon request. You can
request an API key through the Contact Us form. In the Subject field, please
enter “API Key Request” and be sure to include your First and Last name, your Email address,
and note your Organization in the body of the comment form.
Please Note: Your key will be associated with this email address, please use one for
organization wide access.

What should I know about data before I get started? contains data and documents from over 300 Federal agencies; because of
differences in agency policy and practice, not all agencies use in the same
way. For example, all Rules and Proposed Rules from agencies should appear on, however some agencies choose not to post their notices on
Many agencies receive comments through, but individual agencies choose
whether to post all, some, or none of the comments received back out on If
an agency received several thousand form letter comments that were identical, they may post
them back out individually, or just post one noting that it’s representative of all the others.

You may find that data quantity and quality varies as the data extends back in time. Agencies
joined the program at different times beginning in 2003, and agencies have been created,
disbanded, or merged during that time period. Some agencies have brought pre-2003 data into Note specifically that common identifiers as Regulatory Identification

Number (RIN) is not present on all rulemaking documents, and that the Federal Register ID is
padded with preceding zeros to ensure a consistent five character field.

Data will change over the course of the day. The latest issue of the Federal Register is
generally posted by 9:30am, and the date dimensions (e.g., posted today, closing today, etc.,)
are generally updated at this time as well. Agencies post public submissions and other
documents throughout the day. For this reason counts may vary and may age quickly,
depending on site activity and time.

The Federal Regulatory community is working together to encourage consistent practices and
improve the utility and quality of data provided by

Formatting your URL
All requests start with the base URL (see details below for each API option) and are followed
by query parameters, which take the form argument=value, where the arguments and values
are URL encoded according to RFC3986.

Linking to
How can I provide a link from my website to a specific document on supports linking to the document details screen by using the Document ID,
which is available from the API as the <documentId> element.


Using the Document ID the URL to is!documentDetail;D=FDIC-2012-0013-0001
Where D= the <documentId>.

You can also use the Document ID to directly link to the Submit a Comment page, for example:!submitComment;D=FDIC-2012-0013-0001

How can I link to using the FR Numbers published by the
Federal Register?
The Document Detail screen supports an alternative FR URL parameter where FR = FR
number. For Example:!documentDetail;FR=2012-02630

Note that linking by FR number is only supported on the Document Details screen. The
Submit a Comment screen will not accept the FR URL parameter.
