Then they are reprinted in the cumulative first volume of annual edition of CFR (that first volume is saved even though the other volumes are replaced year after year). The Executive Orders also get reprinted in the non-govt (West Publ.) US Code Congressional & Admin. News (USCCAN) and in the monthly advance sheets for the non-govt US Code Annotated (West) and the US Code Service (Lexis), and probably some other non-govt publications, and also kept on file in WestLaw and Lexis internet legal research services, and probably also wind up in the official notes of the US Code (which would also put them in the corresponding sections of the USCA and USCS).
This E.O. was printed in the Fed.Reg. the one requisite time. So yes, it's official and it will be included in the index (altho I don't know if the index adds anything to its official-ness).
So it shows up, easy to be found in what we are here calling the "Index". They have been showing up, every week practically in perfect sequential order for years. And the day I issue a Directive that Executive Orders are a thing of the past because the War is over, they stop.

What gets me is that the Federal Register is public notice. And you say that people being able to find things in the Federal Register is not important? It was until 1/30/17 when I informed the President.
Could you please Copy and Paste your post with embedded links. It is very cumbersome for the layman to imagine such a complicated process. Especially now that the Fed Reg has quit publishing EO's in the "Index".
