When an agency of the federal government develops a regulation, it is generally required to keep a formal record of that process. The record, called a "Docket," includes copies of all public comments the agency received in developing the regulation, copies of all references cited in the regulation, and other relevant information. The Docket is open to the public, which can view and obtain copies of any of its contents.
