AGENCY: ACTION: In accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974, as amended (5 U.S.C. 552a), the Federal Maritime Commission (‘‘Commission’’ or ‘‘FMC’’) is publishing for comment, a revised system of records that is currently maintained by the Commission. The system of records designated as FMC–7, entitled: ‘‘Licensed Ocean Freight Forwarders File-FMC’’, is being revised to: (1) Change its title; (2) clarify the location of the system; (3) clarify the categories of individuals covered by the system; (4) expand the list of categories of records in the system; (5) expand the list of routine uses of records maintained in the system; and (6) expand the list of record source categories. sroberts on PROD1PC70 with NOTICES SUMMARY: Submit an original and 15 copies of comments (paper), or e-mail comments as an attachment in DATES: VerDate Aug<31>2005 19:13 May 29, 2007 Jkt 211001 WordPerfect 10, Microsoft Word 2003, or earlier versions of these applications, no later than June 30, 2007.

VanBrakle, Secretary, Federal Maritime Commission, 800 N. Capitol Street, NW., Washington, DC 20573– 0001, (202) 523–5725, e-mail: secretary@fmc.gov. In accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974, as amended, the FMC proposes to revise the system of records designated as FMC–7 (Licensed Ocean Freight Forwarders File-FMC) by changing the system name to ‘‘Licensed Ocean Transportation Intermediaries Files (Form FMC–18)’’ and by clarifying that the system is located in the Commission’s Bureau of Certification and Licensing. The proposed modifications to the system title and location reflect changes due to statutory amendments under the Ocean Shipping Reform Act of 1998 (Pub. L. 105–258), and Commission organizational changes that have taken place since the last SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00068 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 update and publication of this system of records on June 24, 1999. 64 FR 33862. The categories of individuals covered by the system have been clarified to better identify the individuals and titles of corporate applicants. The categories of records in the system have been expanded to include the use of Social Security Numbers (or alternatively, the driver’s license numbers, passport numbers or alien registration numbers) of the stockholders, officers, and directors of individual ocean transportation intermediaries (OTIs); corporate organizational documents and business licenses; and the inclusion of surety bond information required by statute with respect to licensed OTIs. This additional information is required for the staff to be able to determine whether or not an applicant, or existing licensee, is qualified for licensing or continues to meet the regulatory requirements of an OTI. Routine uses of the information maintained in the system have been expanded to reflect that the Commission may provide or update information maintained in the U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s (CBP) Automated Commercial Environment/International Trade Data System for the purpose of verifying the licensed or registered status of OTIs under the Trade Act of 2002 and for related CBP purposes. Also, a new record source category has been added to show that staff conduct and utilize Internet Web site searches and reviews of selected commercial and government E:\FR\FM\30MYN1.SGM 30MYN1 30010 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 103 / Wednesday, May 30, 2007 / Notices database searches to access information relevant to processing OTI license applications. This new record source enables the staff to perform a more thorough search of information regarding the qualifications/character of an applicant/licensee.

ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: SUMMARY: This notice establishes the data that are available from the National Plan and Provider Enumeration System (NPPES). In addition, this notice addresses who may have access to the data or may receive data from the system, the processes for requesting and receiving data, and the conditions under which data may be disclosed. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Patricia Peyton, (410) 786–1812. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background A. Legislative and Regulatory Background The Administrative Simplification provisions of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) required the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) to adopt a standard unique health identifier for health care providers. On January 23, 2004, HHS published a final rule in the Federal Register that adopted the National Provider Identifier (NPI) as the standard unique health identifier for health care providers (69 FR 3434). The NPI final rule established the National Provider System (NPS) and requires, among other things, that the NPS disseminate data in response to PO 00000 Frm 00070 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 30011 approved requests. The NPI final rule stated that we would publish a notice in the Federal Register describing our data dissemination strategy and the process by which we would carry it out (69 FR 3456). Therefore, we are publishing this notice. B. Operational and System Background On July 28, 1998, in accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974, we published, in the Federal Register, a System of Records (SOR) notice for the National Provider System (NPS) (63 FR 40297). The NPS is the system, as described in the NPI final rule, that will be used to enumerate health care providers and house the information provided on health care providers’ applications for NPIs. The NPS is now contained within the National Plan and Provider Enumeration System (NPPES). We are in the process of revising the Privacy Act SOR notice and will soon publish an updated SOR notice. The updated SOR notice will reflect the change from NPS to NPPES and will incorporate other changes necessitated by organizational and name changes and information contained in the NPI final rule. The updated SOR notice will also contain language that will clarify its consistency with the data dissemination policy described in this notice. (The existing SOR notice, although it is being revised, supports the data dissemination policy described in this notice.) The NPPES enumerates health care providers and houses their NPIs and information from their NPI applications/updates. The NPPES also would be capable of enumerating health plans and housing their standard unique health identifiers and information from their health plan identifier applications/updates once a standard unique health identifier for health plans has been adopted. Covered entities under HIPAA are required to use NPIs to identify health care providers in standard transactions beginning no later than May 23, 2007 (small health plans have until May 23, 2008). (See the Standards for Electronic Transactions and Code Sets final rule published on August 17, 2000 (65 FR 50312), the Modifications to the Electronic Transaction and Code Sets final rule published on February 20, 2003 (68 FR 8381), and the NPI final rule published on January 23, 2004 (69 FR 3434)). Covered entities include health plans, health care clearinghouses, and those health care providers who transmit any health information in electronic form in connection with a transaction for which the Secretary has adopted a standard. The NPPES uniquely identifies health care providers by the use of an E:\FR\FM\30MYN1.SGM 30MYN1

FEDERAL MARITIME COMMISSION


Privacy Act of 1974; Systems of Records

Issued: May 24, 2007.
AGENCY: Federal Maritime Commission.

ACTION: Proposed notice of revised system of records.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: In accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974, as amended (5 
U.S.C. 552a), the Federal Maritime Commission (``Commission'' or 
``FMC'') is publishing for comment, a revised system of records that is 
currently maintained by the Commission. The system of records 
designated as FMC-7, entitled: ``Licensed Ocean Freight Forwarders 
File-FMC'', is being revised to: (1) Change its title; (2) clarify the 
location of the system; (3) clarify the categories of individuals 
covered by the system; (4) expand the list of categories of records in 
the system; (5) expand the list of routine uses of records maintained 
in the system; and (6) expand the list of record source categories.

DATES: Submit an original and 15 copies of comments (paper), or e-mail 
comments as an attachment in WordPerfect 10, Microsoft Word 2003, or 
earlier versions of these applications, no later than June 30, 2007. 
These revisions will become effective on July 9, 2007, unless the 
Commission receives comments that would result in a contrary 
determination.

ADDRESSES: Comments may be submitted to: Bryant L. VanBrakle, 
Secretary, Federal Maritime Commission, 800 N. Capitol Street, NW., 
Washington, DC 20573-0001, (202) 523-5725, e-mail: secretary@fmc.gov.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Bryant L. VanBrakle, Secretary, 
Federal Maritime Commission, 800 N. Capitol Street, NW., Washington, DC 
20573-0001, (202) 523-5725, e-mail: secretary@fmc.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974, 
as amended, the FMC proposes to revise the system of records designated 
as FMC-7 (Licensed Ocean Freight Forwarders File-FMC) by changing the 
system name to ``Licensed Ocean Transportation Intermediaries Files 
(Form FMC-18)'' and by clarifying that the system is located in the 
Commission's Bureau of Certification and Licensing. The proposed 
modifications to the system title and location reflect changes due to 
statutory amendments under the Ocean Shipping Reform Act of 1998 (Pub. 
L. 105-258), and Commission organizational changes that have taken 
place since the last update and publication of this system of records 
on June 24, 1999. 64 FR 33862. The categories of individuals covered by 
the system have been clarified to better identify the individuals and 
titles of corporate applicants. The categories of records in the system 
have been expanded to include the use of Social Security Numbers (or 
alternatively, the driver's license numbers, passport numbers or alien 
registration numbers) of the stockholders, officers, and directors of 
individual ocean transportation intermediaries (OTIs); corporate 
organizational documents and business licenses; and the inclusion of 
surety bond information required by statute with respect to licensed 
OTIs. This additional information is required for the staff to be able 
to determine whether or not an applicant, or existing licensee, is 
qualified for licensing or continues to meet the regulatory 
requirements of an OTI. Routine uses of the information maintained in 
the system have been expanded to reflect that the Commission may 
provide or update information maintained in the U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection's (CBP) Automated Commercial Environment/International Trade 
Data System for the purpose of verifying the licensed or registered 
status of OTIs under the Trade Act of 2002 and for related CBP 
purposes. Also, a new record source category has been added to show 
that staff conduct and utilize Internet Web site searches and reviews 
of selected commercial and government

[[Page 30010]]

database searches to access information relevant to processing OTI 
license applications. This new record source enables the staff to 
perform a more thorough search of information regarding the 
qualifications/character of an applicant/licensee.
    As required by 5 U.S.C. 552a(r) of the Privacy Act of 1974, as 
amended, and OMB Circular A-130, Appendix I, the Federal Maritime 
Commission has submitted a report describing the altered system of 
records covered by this notice to the Office of Management and Budget 
and to Congress.
