EPA has explained the reasons for this authorization in the direct final rule. Unless EPA receives written comments that oppose this authorization during the comment period, the direct final rule in today’s Federal Register will become effective on the date it establishes, and EPA will not take further action on this proposal.

II. Regulatory History and Information

    On January 19, 2017, DHS published the following three proposed 
rules: ``Safeguarding of Controlled Unclassified Information (HSAR Case 
2015-001),'' ``Information Technology Security Awareness Training (HSAR 
Case 2015-002),'' and ``Privacy Training (HSAR Case 2015-003)'' (82 FR 
6429, 82 FR 6446, and 82 FR 6425 respectively). The three rules propose 
to amend the HSAR in the following ways: (1) Ensure contractors 
understand their responsibilities with regard to safeguarding 
controlled unclassified information (CUI); (2) ensure contractor and 
subcontractor employees complete information technology (IT) security 
awareness training before DHS provides them with access to DHS 
information systems and information resources or contractor-owned and/
or operated information systems and information resources where CUI is 
collected, processed, stored or transmitted on behalf of the agency; 
(3) ensure that contractor and subcontractor employees sign the DHS 
Rules of Behavior before DHS provides them with access to DHS 
information systems, information resources, or contractor-owned and/or 
operated information systems and information resources where CUI is 
collected, processed, stored or transmitted on behalf of the agency; 
and (4) ensure contractor and subcontractor employees complete privacy 
training before accessing a Government system of records; handling 
personally identifiable information (PII) and/or sensitive PII 
information; or designing, developing, maintaining, or operating a 
system of records on behalf of the Government.
    Comments on these proposed rules were originally due by March 20, 
2017. However, a number of parties have requested additional time to 
review the proposed rules and submit comments. Thus, to ensure the 
public has sufficient time to review the proposed rules and submit 
comments, DHS is extending the comment periods by 30 days.
