Each national park has specific local regulations called the Superintendent's Compendium. These regulations are established under the superintendent's discretionary authority under Title 54 of the Code of Federal Regulations. The Superintendent's Compendium helps provide for the enjoyment, use, and protection of the National Park of American Samoa. It is a compilation of park-specific regulations to maintain public health and safety, protect environmental or scenic values, protect natural and cultural resources, and aid in scientific research.
