SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Effective January 24, 2003, the Homeland Security Act of 2002 divided the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) into two new Agencies, the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATFE) in the Department of Justice. ATFE oversees Federal firearms, explosives, and arson laws and programs, and administers laws pertaining to alcohol and tobacco smuggling and diversion. TTB is responsible for administering chapters 51 (relating to distilled spirits, wine, and beer) and 52 (relating to tobacco products and cigarette papers and tubes) of title 26 U.S.C., the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (IRC). TTB also administers sections 4181 and 4182 (relating to the excise tax on firearms and ammunition) of the IRC and title 27 of the U.S.C. (relating to alcohol). After the organizational change, TTB conducted a review of its records to emcdonald on DSK2BSOYB1PROD with RULES SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:19 Oct 18, 2010 Jkt 223001 determine which records are Privacy Act systems of records. The review determined that one of the six ATF systems of records still existed within TTB, and five of ATF’s six systems of records could be removed from the Department of the Treasury’s Privacy Act systems of records inventory. As a result of this review, on September 2, 2008, the Department of the Treasury published in the Federal Register at 73 FR 51344 a notice of systems of records for the one system currently in TTB’s inventory, ‘‘Treasury/TTB .001– Regulatory Enforcement Record System.’’ The changes in organization and in TTB’s inventory of systems of records also required changes to the Department of the Treasury’s regulations in 31 CFR part 1. On September 2, 2008, the Department of the Treasury published in the Federal Register (73 FR 51218) an interim rule amending 31 CFR 1.20 and 1.36 by revising the title of the Bureau from ‘‘Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms’’ to ‘‘Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau,’’ by removing three Privacy Act systems of records from the 31 CFR 1.36, by renaming the one remaining system of records, and by retaining the prior exemption from certain provisions of the Privacy Act pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 552a(k)(2) for the one remaining, renamed system of records. The interim rule also invited the submission of public comments on the regulatory amendments, prior to the comment period closing on October 2, 2008. The Department did not receive any comments on the interim rule. Accordingly, we have determined that it is appropriate to adopt that interim rule as a final rule without change. In accordance with Executive Order 12866, it has been determined that this final rule is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ and, therefore, does not require a Regulatory Impact Analysis. The regulation will not have a substantial direct effect on the States, on the relationship between the national Government and the States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government. Therefore, it has been determined that this final rule does not have federalism implications under Executive Order 13132. Because no notice of proposed rulemaking is required, the provisions of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.) do not apply.

31 CFR Part 1


Privacy Act; Implementation

AGENCY: Office of the Secretary, Treasury.

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: The Department of the Treasury is adopting, without change, an 
interim rule that amended its regulations on the Privacy Act of 1974, 
as Amended, by removing three Privacy Act systems of records from this 
part, revising the title of the one remaining Privacy Act system of 
records relating to the functions of the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and 
Trade Bureau, and retaining the Privacy Act exemptions for TTB's one 
remaining system of records.

DATES: Effective Date: October 19, 2010.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Karen Welch, Regulations and Rulings 
Division, Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (202-453-2046) or 
Karen.Welch@ttb.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Effective January 24, 2003, the Homeland 
Security Act of 2002 divided the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and 
Firearms (ATF) into two new Agencies, the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and 
Trade Bureau (TTB) and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and 
Explosives (ATFE) in the Department of Justice. ATFE oversees Federal 
firearms, explosives, and arson laws and programs, and administers laws 
pertaining to alcohol and tobacco smuggling and diversion. TTB is 
responsible for administering chapters 51 (relating to distilled 
spirits, wine, and beer) and 52 (relating to tobacco products and 
cigarette papers and tubes) of title 26 U.S.C., the Internal Revenue 
Code of 1986, as amended (IRC). TTB also administers sections 4181 and 
4182 (relating to the excise tax on firearms and ammunition) of the IRC 
and title 27 of the U.S.C. (relating to alcohol).
    After the organizational change, TTB conducted a review of its 
records to determine which records are Privacy Act systems of records. 
The review determined that one of the six ATF systems of records still 
existed within TTB, and five of ATF's six systems of records could be 
removed from the Department of the Treasury's Privacy Act systems of 
records inventory. As a result of this review, on September 2, 2008, 
the Department of the Treasury published in the Federal Register at 73 
FR 51344 a notice of systems of records for the one system currently in 
TTB's inventory, ``Treasury/TTB .001-Regulatory Enforcement Record 
System.''
    The changes in organization and in TTB's inventory of systems of 
records also required changes to the Department of the Treasury's 
regulations in 31 CFR part 1. On September 2, 2008, the Department of 
the Treasury published in the Federal Register (73 FR 51218) an interim 
rule amending 31 CFR 1.20 and 1.36 by revising the title of the Bureau 
from ``Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms'' to ``Alcohol and 
Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau,'' by removing three Privacy Act systems 
of records from the 31 CFR 1.36, by renaming the one remaining system 
of records, and by retaining the prior exemption from certain 
provisions of the Privacy Act pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 552a(k)(2) for the 
one remaining, renamed system of records.
    The interim rule also invited the submission of public comments on 
the regulatory amendments, prior to the comment period closing on 
October 2, 2008. The Department did not receive any comments on the 
interim rule. Accordingly, we have determined that it is appropriate to 
adopt that interim rule as a final rule without change.
    In accordance with Executive Order 12866, it has been determined 
that this final rule is not a ``significant regulatory action'' and, 
therefore, does not require a Regulatory Impact Analysis. The 
regulation will not have a substantial direct effect on the States, on 
the relationship between the national Government and the States, or on 
the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels 
of government. Therefore, it has been determined that this final rule 
does not have federalism implications under Executive Order 13132.
    Because no notice of proposed rulemaking is required, the 
provisions of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.) do 
not apply.
