Meade, MD 20755– 5235, 301–677–7085, Testing for Department of Defense (DoD) Employees Only * The Standards Council of Canada (SCC) voted to end its Laboratory Accreditation Program for Substance Abuse (LAPSA) effective May 12, 1998. Laboratories certified through that program were accredited to conduct forensic urine drug testing as required by U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) regulations. As of that date, the certification of those accredited Canadian laboratories will continue under DOT authority. The responsibility for conducting quarterly performance testing plus periodic on-site inspections of those LAPSA-accredited laboratories was transferred to the U.S. HHS, with the HHS’ NLCP contractor continuing to have an active role in the performance testing and laboratory inspection processes. Other Canadian laboratories wishing to be considered for the NLCP may apply directly to the NLCP contractor just as U.S. laboratories do. Upon finding a Canadian laboratory to be qualified, HHS will recommend that DOT certify the laboratory (Federal Register, July 16, 1996) as meeting the minimum standards of the Mandatory Guidelines published in the Federal Register on April 30, 2010 (75 FR 22809). After receiving DOT certification, the laboratory will be included in the monthly list of HHScertified laboratories and participate in the NLCP certification maintenance program.

Background Recent Changes On December 18, 2015, the President signed into law the Visa Waiver Program Improvement and Terrorist Travel Prevention Act of 2015 as part of the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2016. To meet the requirements of this new Act, DHS strengthened the security of the VWP by enhancing the ESTA application and Form I–94W. In two recent emergency submissions under the Paperwork Reduction Act, additional questions were added to ESTA and to Form I–94W that request information from applicants about countries to which they have traveled on or after March 1, 2011; countries of which they are citizens/nationals; countries for which they hold passports; and Global Entry Numbers. CBP Forms I–94 (Arrival/Departure Record) and I–94W (Nonimmigrant Visa Waiver Arrival/Departure Record) are used to document a traveler’s admission into the United States. These forms are filled out by aliens and are used to collect information on citizenship, residency, passport, and contact information. The data elements collected on these forms enable DHS to perform its mission related to the screening of alien visitors for potential risks to national security and the determination of admissibility to the United States. ESTA applies to aliens seeking to travel to the United States under the Visa Waiver Program (VWP) and requires that VWP travelers provide information electronically to CBP before embarking on travel to the United States without a visa. Travelers who are entering the United States under the VWP in the air or sea environment and who have a travel authorization obtained through ESTA are not required to complete the paper Form I–94W. Pursuant to an interim final rule published on March 27, 2013 in the Federal Register (78 FR 18457) related to Form I–94, CBP has partially automated the Form I–94 process. CBP now gathers data previously collected on the paper Form I–94 from existing automated sources in lieu of requiring passengers arriving by air or sea to submit a paper I–94 upon arrival. Passengers can access and print their Proposed Changes DHS proposes to add the following question to ESTA and to Form I–94W: ‘‘Please enter information associated with your online presence—Provider/ Platform—Social media identifier.’’ It will be an optional data field to request social media identifiers to be used by highly trained CBP personnel for vetting purposes, and applicant contact information. Collecting social media identifiers will enhance the existing vetting process and provide DHS greater clarity and visibility to possible nefarious activity and connections by providing an additional selector which analysts and investigators may use to better assess ESTA applications. Social media information may be used to validate information provided in the ESTA application, such as countries visited, purpose of travel, etc. If an applicant chooses not to fill out or answer questions regarding social media, the ESTA application can still be successfully submitted. If an applicant chooses to answer this question, DHS will have visibility of the publicly available information on those platforms, consistent with the privacy settings the applicant has set on the platforms.

Abstract

Background

    CBP Forms I-94 (Arrival/Departure Record) and I-94W (Nonimmigrant 
Visa Waiver Arrival/Departure Record) are used to document a traveler's 
admission into the United States. These forms are filled out by aliens 
and are used to collect information on citizenship, residency, 
passport, and contact information. The data elements collected on these 
forms enable DHS to perform its mission related to the screening of 
alien visitors for potential risks to national security and the 
determination of admissibility to the United States. ESTA applies to 
aliens seeking to travel to the United States under the Visa Waiver 
Program (VWP) and requires that VWP travelers provide information 
electronically to CBP before embarking on travel to the United States 
without a visa. Travelers who are entering the United States under the 
VWP in the air or sea environment and who have a travel authorization 
obtained through ESTA are not required to complete the paper Form I-
94W.
    Pursuant to an interim final rule published on March 27, 2013 in 
the Federal Register (78 FR 18457) related to Form I-94, CBP has 
partially automated the Form I-94 process. CBP now gathers data 
previously collected on the paper Form I-94 from existing automated 
sources in lieu of requiring passengers arriving by air or sea to 
submit a paper I-94 upon arrival. Passengers can access and print their 
electronic I-94 via the Web site at www.cbp.gov/I94.
    ESTA can be accessed at: https://esta.cbp.dhs.gov. Samples of CBP 
Forms I-94 and I-94W can be viewed at: http://www.cbp.gov/document/forms/form-i-94-arrivaldeparture-record and http://www.cbp.gov/document/forms/form-i-94w-visa-waiver-arrivaldeparture-record.

Recent Changes

    On December 18, 2015, the President signed into law the Visa Waiver 
Program Improvement and Terrorist Travel Prevention Act of 2015 as part 
of the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2016. To meet the 
requirements of this new Act, DHS strengthened the security of the VWP 
by enhancing the ESTA application and Form I-94W. In two recent 
emergency submissions under the Paperwork Reduction Act, additional 
questions were added to ESTA and to Form I-94W that request information 
from applicants about countries to which they have traveled on or after 
March 1, 2011; countries of which they are citizens/nationals; 
countries for which they hold passports; and Global Entry Numbers.

Proposed Changes

    DHS proposes to add the following question to ESTA and to Form I-
94W: ``Please enter information associated with your online presence--
Provider/Platform--Social media identifier.'' It will be an optional 
data field to request social media identifiers to be used by highly 
trained CBP personnel for vetting purposes, and applicant contact 
information. Collecting social media identifiers will enhance the 
existing vetting process and provide DHS greater clarity and visibility 
to possible nefarious activity and connections by providing an 
additional selector which analysts and investigators may use to better 
assess ESTA applications. Social media information may be used to 
validate information provided in the ESTA application, such as 
countries visited, purpose of travel, etc. If an applicant chooses not 
to fill out or answer questions regarding social media, the ESTA 
application can still be successfully submitted. If an applicant 
chooses to answer this question, DHS will have visibility of the 
publicly available information on those platforms, consistent with the 
privacy settings the applicant has set on the platforms.
    Current Actions: This submission is being made to extend the 
expiration date with a change to the information collected as a result 
of adding a question about social media to ESTA and to Form I-94W, as 
described in the Abstract section of this document. There are no 
changes to the burden hours or to the information collected on Form I-
94, or the I-94 Web site.
