In the law of the United States, the Code of Laws of the United States of America[1] (variously abbreviated to Code of Laws of the United States, United States Code, U.S. Code, U.S.C., or USC) is the official compilation and codification of the general and permanent federal statutes.[2] It contains 53 titles (Titles 1–54, excepting Title 53, which is reserved for a proposed title on small business).[3][4] The main edition is published every six years by the Office of the Law Revision Counsel of the House of Representatives, and cumulative supplements are published annually.[2][5][6] The official version of these laws appears in the United States Statutes at Large, a chronological, uncodified compilation.
