INTERNATIONAL TRADE COMMISSION


Privacy Act of 1974; System of Records

AGENCY: United States International Trade Commission (USITC).

ACTION: Notice of a new system of records.

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

SUMMARY: In accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974 (Privacy Act), the 
United States International Trade Commission (USITC or Commission) 
proposes to add a new system of records to collect information in 
response to a public health emergency. This system of records maintains 
information collected in response to a public health emergency and will 
collect information from USITC personnel (political appointees, 
employees, detailees, interns, and volunteers), contractors, visitors, 
job applicants, and others who access or seek to access the USITC 
worksite, to assist the USITC with maintaining a safe and healthy 
workplace and to protect its workforce from risks associated with 
communicable diseases.

DATES: The system of records will become effective upon publication in 
today's Federal Register, with the exception of the routine uses that 
will be effective on January 6, 2022. The USITC invites written 
comments on the routine uses and other aspects of this system of 
records. Submit any comments by January 6, 2022.

ADDRESSES: You may submit comments via the Electronic Document Filing 
System (EDIS) at https://edis.usitc.gov. All submissions must include 
the investigation number (MISC-043), along with a physical or 
electronic signature on the cover letter. Any information that you 
provide, including personal information, will be publicly available for 
viewing.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Michael O'Rourke, (202) 708-1390, 
Privacy Officer, United States International Trade Commission, 500 E 
St. SW, Washington, DC 20436, at [email protected]. Hearing-impaired 
persons can obtain information on this matter by contacting the 
Commission's TDD terminal on 202-205-1810.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: To collect and maintain contractor, visitor, 
and job applicant disclosures, the USITC is establishing ITC-4, Public 
Health and Safety Records, a system of records under the Privacy Act. 
The USITC is committed to maintaining a safe and healthy workplace and 
to protect its workforce from risks associated with a public health 
emergency. To ensure and maintain the safety of all USITC personnel, 
contractors, visitors, job applicants, and others who access or seek to 
access the USITC worksite during a public health emergency, the USITC 
may develop and institute safety measures that require the collection 
of personal information. For further information on how the USITC will 
maintain records relating to employee requests for reasonable and 
religious accommodations, please refer to ITC-3, Reasonable 
Accommodation Records.
    Records may include information on individuals' vaccination status 
and information related to accommodations based on disability or a 
sincerely held religious belief. Records may also include information 
on individuals who have been suspected or confirmed to have contracted 
a disease or illness, or who have been exposed to an individual who had 
been suspected or confirmed to have contracted a disease or illness, 
related to a declared public health emergency. Records may also include 
information on the individual circumstances surrounding the disease or 
illness, such as dates of suspected exposure, testing results, 
symptoms, treatments, and other related health status information. Any 
contact tracing that the USITC conducts will involve collecting 
information about USITC personnel, contractors, and visitors who are 
exhibiting symptoms or who have tested positive for an infectious 
disease in order to identify and notify other USITC personnel, 
contractors, and visitors with whom they may have come into contact and 
who may have been exposed.
    As required by subsection 552a(r) of the Privacy Act (5 U.S.C. 
552a(r)), the USITC has provided a report to the Office of Management 
and Budget, the Chair of the Committee on Oversight and Reform of the

associated with communicable diseases that the Secretary of the 
Department of Health and Human Services has determined to be a public 
health emergency pursuant to the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. 
247d) (Public Health Emergency). Records in this system may be

of harm to USITC personnel, contactors, and visitors, as well as to any 
others at the USITC worksite; (3) document reports that USITC

CATEGORIES OF RECORDS IN THE SYSTEM:

contacts between potentially contagious persons and others at the USITC 
worksite); testing results (negative test results, confirmed or 
unconfirmed positive test results, and documents related to the reasons 
for testing or other aspects of test results); and subsequent actions 
taken by the USITC to address an incident (identifying and contact 
information of individuals who are suspected or confirmed to have 
contracted or been exposed to a communicable disease that is the 
subject of a Public Health Emergency, individual circumstances and 
dates of suspected exposure). The USITC will use this information to 
maintain a safe and healthy workplace and to protect its workforce. 
Although the USITC does not intend to collect family medical 
information, an individual may indicate that they were exposed to 
specific family members who have been diagnosed with, or are suspected 
to have, the disease in question. To the extent that the USITC acquires
