Patient Access to Records
Document Number: 2013-18057
Type: Rule
Date: 2013-07-29
Agency: Department of Veterans Affairs
The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) amends its regulation governing disclosure of information to veterans and other beneficiaries. The current regulation provides for a special procedure for evaluating sensitive records and determining whether an individual may gain access to his or her own records. The special procedure allows VA to prevent an individual's access to his or her own records if VA determines that such release could have an adverse effect on the physical or mental health of a requesting individual. We have determined that this special procedure is contrary to law, and therefore remove it from the current regulation.

Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2013-07-29

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is amending its regulations to provide for accreditation of third-party auditors/ certification bodies to conduct food safety audits of foreign food entities, including registered foreign food facilities, and to issue food and facility certifications, under the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). Use of accredited third-party auditors/ certification bodies and food and facility certifications will help FDA prevent potentially harmful food from reaching U.S. consumers and thereby improve the safety of the U.S. food supply. FDA also expects that these regulations will increase efficiency by reducing the number of redundant food safety audits.
