List of Subjects in 28 CFR Part 16 Administrative practices and procedures, Courts, Freedom of Information Act, Government in the Sunshine Act, and the Privacy Act. Pursuant to the authority vested in the Attorney General by 5 U.S.C. 552a and delegated to me by Attorney General Order 2940–2008, 28 CFR part 16 is amended as follows: PART 16—[AMENDED] 1. The authority citation for part 16 continues to read as follows: ■ Authority: 5 U.S.C. 301, 552, 552a, 552b(g), 553; 18 U.S.C. 4203(a)(1); 28 U.S.C. 509, 510, 534; 31 U.S.C. 3717, 9701. Subpart E—Exemption of Records Systems Under the Privacy Act 2. Section 16.134 is added to subpart E to read as follows: ■ mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with RULES § 16.134 Exemption of Debt Collection Enforcement System, Justice/DOJ–016. (a) The following system of records is exempt pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 552a(j)(2) from subsections (c)(3) and (4); (d)(1), (2), (3), and (4); (e)(1), (2), (3), (4)(G), (H) and (I), (5) and (8); (f) and (g) of the Privacy Act. In addition, the system is exempt pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 552a(k)(2) from subsections (c)(3); (d)(1), (2), (3), and (4); (e)(1); (4)(G), (H), and (I); and (f). These exemptions apply only to the extent that information in this system is subject to exemption pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 552a(j)(2) or (k)(2). Where compliance would not appear to interfere with or adversely affect the law enforcement purposes of this system, or the overall law enforcement process, the applicable exemption may be waived by the DOJ in its sole discretion. (b) Exemptions from the particular subsections are justified for the following reasons: (1) From subsection (c)(3), the requirement that an accounting be made available to the named subject of a record, because certain records in this system are exempt from the access provisions of subsection (d). Also, because making available to a record subject the accounting of disclosures from records concerning him/her would specifically reveal any investigative interest in the individual. Revealing this information may thus compromise ongoing law enforcement efforts. Revealing this information may also permit the record subject to take VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:02 Apr 17, 2012 Jkt 226001 measures to impede the investigation, such as destroying evidence, intimidating potential witnesses or fleeing the area to avoid the investigation. (2) From subsection (c)(4) notification requirements because certain records in this system are exempt from the access and amendment provisions of subsection (d) as well as the access to accounting of disclosures provision of subsection (c)(3). (3) From subsections (d)(1), (2), (3), and (4) because access to the records contained in this system might compromise ongoing investigations, reveal confidential informants, or constitute unwarranted invasions of the personal privacy of third parties who are involved in a certain investigation. Amendment of the records would interfere with ongoing debt collection investigations or other law enforcement proceedings and impose an impossible administrative burden by requiring investigations to be continuously reinvestigated. (4) From subsection (e)(1) because it is not always possible to know in advance what information is relevant and necessary for law enforcement purposes. (5) From subsection (e)(2) to avoid impeding law enforcement efforts associated with debt collection by putting the subject of an investigation on notice of that fact, thereby permitting the subject to engage in conduct intended to frustrate or impede that investigation. (6) From subsection (e)(3) to avoid impeding law enforcement efforts in conjunction with debt collection by putting the subject of an investigation on notice of that fact, thereby permitting the subject to engage in conduct intended to frustrate or impede that investigation. (7) From subsection (e)(4)(G), (H) and (I) because portions of this system are exempt from the access provisions of subsection (d) pursuant to subsections (j) and (k) of the Privacy Act. (8) From subsection (e)(5) because many of the records in this system are records contributed by other agencies and the restrictions imposed by (e)(5) would limit the utility of the system. (9) From subsection (e)(8), because to require individual notice of disclosure of information due to compulsory legal process would pose an impossible administrative burden on the DOJ and may alert the subjects of law enforcement investigations, who might be otherwise unaware, to the fact of those investigations. (10) From subsections (f) and (g) to the extent that the system is exempt PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 23117 from other specific subsections of the Privacy Act. Dated: April 5, 2012.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    In OSHA's Standards Improvement Project-Phase III final rule, 
published on June 8, 2011, the Agency stated that it was amending its 
standards regulating slings for general industry, shipyard employment, 
and construction by removing outdated tables that specify safe working 
loads, and revising other provisions that referenced the outdated 
tables (see 76 FR at 33591 and 33597). To replace these tables, OSHA 
added requirements that prohibit employers from loading slings in 
excess of the recommended safe working load prescribed on 
identification markings located on, or attached to, each sling; these 
requirements also prohibit the use

[[Page 23118]]

of slings that do not have such markings.
    While OSHA removed the load-capacity tables for slings from Sec.  
1910.184 (general industry; tables N-184-1, and N-184-3 through N-184-
22) and Sec.  1915.118 (shipyard employment; tables G-1 through G-5, G-
7 through G-8, and G-10), including references to these tables in Sec.  
1915.112 and Sec.  1915.113, the Agency failed to include in the 
regulatory text provisions to remove the tables in Sec.  1926.251 
(construction; tables H-1, and H-3 through H-19), and redesignate Table 
H-2 to H-1 and Table H-20 to H-2. This notice, therefore, amends Sec.  
1926.251 by removing most of the existing tables (H-1, and H-3 through 
H-19), redesignating Table H-2 as Table H-1 and Table H-20 as Table H-
2, and revising paragraphs (b)(5) and (c)(5) to indicate the new table 
number.
