ACTION: Notice of data availability & request for comment. AGENCY: SUMMARY: Notice of availability for a 30 day review and comment period is hereby given for two revised data standards—(1) Enforcement and Compliance Data Standard and (2)Tribal Identifier Data Standard. The Enforcement and Compliance Data Standard identifies and defines the major areas of enforcement and compliance information that could be used for the exchange of data among environmental agencies and other entities. The purpose of the standard is to provide a common lexicon, so that information about functionally similar activities and/or instruments can be stored. The Tribal Identifier Data Standard specifies the set of tribal names and codes necessary to constitute consistent and unambiguous identification of federally-recognized American Indian and Alaska Native entities. The Tribal Identifier Standard adopted the Bureau of Indian Affairs criteria of tribal entity identification (federally recognized tribes) and is not intended for the identification of geographic, demographic or economic tribal areas.

This standard assists and supports the development of computerized applications that use tribal identifier information.
