This rule proposes standards for temporary records so that agencies may establish appropriate processes for digitizing temporary records. Temporary records constitute the majority of Federal records; agencies retain them for a specific period of time, as established by records schedules. At the end of the scheduled retention period, temporary records are then destroyed. Digitization standards for temporary records ensure that agencies can continue to use the digital versions for the same purposes as the original records for the duration of that time period. This rule would provide agencies with guidance necessary to proceed with significant digitization and destruction projects for temporary records. We are currently developing standards for digitizing permanent records, which we will publish as a E:\FR\FM\10SEP1.SGM 10SEP1 45588 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 175 / Monday, September 10, 2018 / Proposed Rules separate rulemaking. Until these standards are published as a final rule, we recommend that agencies discuss digitization projects with their general counsel before disposing of original records. While we develop the standards necessary for digitizing permanent Federal records, agencies should continue to follow the process in the General Records Schedule, 36 CFR 1225.24, and NARA Bulletin 2010–04, Guidance Concerning Notifications for Previously Scheduled Permanent Records (https://www.archives.gov/ records-mgmt/bulletins/2010/201004.html). In addition to issuing digitization standards for temporary records, we are also removing 36 CFR 1236.1 because it restates the authorities already cited in the authority line. We are also working on revisions to the rest of this regulation regarding electronic records management, but those revisions will be reflected in future rulemakings. 1236.30 Digitizing temporary records. (a) Agencies must apply the following standards when digitally reproducing (digitizing) temporary records in order to destroy the original source records. (b) When digitizing temporary records, agencies must: (1) Capture all information contained in the source records; (2) Include all the pages or parts in the source records; (3) Ensure they can use the digital versions for the purposes the source records served; and (4) Ensure they can locate, retrieve, access, and use the digital versions for the records’ entire retention period. (c) Agencies must validate that the digital versions meet the standards in subparagraph (b). When an agency has validated that the digital versions meet these standards, the agency can destroy the original source records pursuant to a NARA-approved GRS and agencyspecific records schedule.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    In 2014, the Federal Records Act at 44 U.S.C. 3302 was amended by 
Public Law 113-87 to require NARA to issue standards for reproducing 
records digitally `with a view toward the disposal of original 
records.' The amendment applies to both temporary and permanent 
records.
    This rule proposes standards for temporary records so that agencies 
may establish appropriate processes for digitizing temporary records. 
Temporary records constitute the majority of Federal records; agencies 
retain them for a specific period of time, as established by records 
schedules. At the end of the scheduled retention period, temporary 
records are then destroyed. Digitization standards for temporary 
records ensure that agencies can continue to use the digital versions 
for the same purposes as the original records for the duration of that 
time period.
    This rule would provide agencies with guidance necessary to proceed 
with significant digitization and destruction projects for temporary 
records. We are currently developing standards for digitizing permanent 
records, which we will publish as a

[[Page 45588]]

separate rulemaking. Until these standards are published as a final 
rule, we recommend that agencies discuss digitization projects with 
their general counsel before disposing of original records.
    While we develop the standards necessary for digitizing permanent 
Federal records, agencies should continue to follow the process in the 
General Records Schedule, 36 CFR 1225.24, and NARA Bulletin 2010-04, 
Guidance Concerning Notifications for Previously Scheduled Permanent 
Records (https://www.archives.gov/records-mgmt/bulletins/2010/2010-04.html).
    In addition to issuing digitization standards for temporary 
records, we are also removing 36 CFR 1236.1 because it restates the 
authorities already cited in the authority line. We are also working on 
revisions to the rest of this regulation regarding electronic records 
management, but those revisions will be reflected in future 
rulemakings.

Regulatory Review Information

    This rule is not a significant regulatory action for the purposes 
of E.O. 12866 and a significance determination was requested from the 
Office of Management and Budget (OMB). As a result, this rule is also 
not subject to deregulatory requirements contained in E.O. 13771. It is 
also not a major rule as defined in 5 U.S.C. Chapter 8, Congressional 
Review of Agency Rulemaking. As required by the Regulatory Flexibility 
Act, we certify that this rule will not have a significant impact on a 
substantial number of small entities; it applies only to agency efforts 
to digitize temporary records. This rule also does not have any 
Federalism implications and does not contain any collections of 
information under the Paperwork Reduction Act.
