To be able to understand all the statutory requirements from multiple agencies and at multiple levels, one must be able to communicate and must have a fairly firm grasp of the political process within the United States. Each session of Congress enacts laws, many of which are captured and recognized as “acts”; one such act the author references regularly is the Energy Independence and Security Act (EISA) of 2007. Once an act has been passed by Congress, it must be written into U.S. code and, as a separate and parallel track, the code must be translated into a codified document that can be used by those outside of government. Most of the “laws” of the land are codified in a series of documents known as the CFRs.
