Background The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal Register, 81 FR 19932, April 6, 2016, proposing to exempt portions of the system of records from one or more provisions of the Privacy Act because of criminal, civil, and administrative enforcement requirements. DHS reissued the ‘‘DHS/CBP–014 Regulatory Audit Archive System (RAAS) System of Records’’ in the Federal Register at 81 FR 19985, April 6, 2016, to provide notice to the public that DHS/CBP was updating the categories of records to include the capture of Employer Identification Numbers (EIN) or Social Security numbers (SSN), also known as a Federal Taxpayer Identifying Number, pursuant to 19 CFR 24.5, 19 CFR 149.3, and Executive Order 9397, as amended by Executive Order 13748. DHS is revising the previously claimed exemptions from certain requirements of the Privacy Act for DHS/CBP–014 Regulatory Audit Archive System (RAAS) System of Records. DHS/CBP is not requesting an exemption with respect to information maintained in the system as it relates to data submitted by or on behalf of a subject of an audit. The Privacy Act requires DHS to maintain an accounting of the disclosures made pursuant to all routines uses. Disclosing the fact that a law enforcement or intelligence agency has sought particular records may affect ongoing law enforcement activity. Therefore, pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 552a(k)(2), DHS will claim exemption from section (c)(3) of the Privacy Act of 1974, as amended, as is necessary and appropriate to protect this information. Some information in DHS/CBP–014 Regulatory Audit Archive System (RAAS) System of Records relates to official DHS law enforcement activities. These exemptions are needed to protect information relating to DHS law enforcement activities from disclosure to subjects or others related to these activities. Specifically, the exemptions are required to preclude subjects of these activities from frustrating these processes; to avoid disclosure of activity techniques; to protect the identities and physical safety of confidential informants and law enforcement personnel; to ensure DHS’s ability to obtain information from third parties PO 00000 Frm 00001 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 and other sources; to protect the privacy of third parties; and to safeguard classified information. Disclosure of information to the subject of the inquiry could also permit the subject to avoid detection or apprehension. The exemption proposed here is a standard law enforcement exemption exercised by a large number of federal law enforcement agencies. In appropriate circumstances, where compliance would not appear to interfere with or adversely affect the law enforcement purposes of this system and the overall law enforcement process, the applicable exemptions may be waived on a case-by-case basis. DHS/CBP invited comments on both the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) and System of Records Notice (SORN). II. Public Comments DHS received no comments on the NPRM or the SORN and will implement the rulemaking as proposed. List of Subjects in 6 CFR Part 5 Freedom of information, Privacy.

The Secretary of Homeland Security, pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 552a(k)(2), has exempted this system from the following provisions of the Privacy Act: 5 U.S.C. 552a(c)(3). Exemptions from these particular subsections are justified, on a case-bycase basis to be determined at the time a request is made, for the following reasons: (a) From subsection (c)(3) (Accounting for Disclosures) because release of the accounting of disclosures could alert the subject of an investigation of an actual or potential criminal, civil, or regulatory violation to the existence of that investigation and reveal investigative interest on the part of DHS as well as the recipient agency. Disclosure of the accounting would therefore present a serious impediment to law enforcement efforts and/or efforts to preserve national security. Disclosure of the accounting would also permit the individual who is the subject of a record to impede the investigation, to tamper with witnesses or evidence, and to avoid detection or apprehension, which would undermine the entire investigative process.

(type certificate previously held by Raytheon Aircraft Company, Hawker Beechcraft Corporation, and Beechcraft Corporation) (Textron) Model 300, 300LW, B300, and B300C airplanes. This AD was prompted by a report of a timing issue where the yaw servo software can generate a motor position fault when the pilot applies rudder input at the same time the rudder boost system is activated, which disables the rudder boost function and leads to a reduced ability of the flight crew to maintain the safe flight and landing of the airplane or loss of control of the airplane. This AD requires updating the software version of the yaw servo. The FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products. DATES: This AD is effective February 22, 2022.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background Garmin informed the FAA of a problem during flight testing with the Garmin International, Inc., G1000 integrated avionics system installed on Textron Model 300, 300LW, B300, and B300C airplanes in accordance with Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) No. SA01535WI–D. A timing issue in the yaw servo software can generate a motor position fault when the pilot applies rudder input at the same time the rudder boost system is activated, which disables the rudder boost function. The rudder boost system applies additional rudder force, using the GSA 9000 yaw servo, following loss of an engine or significant loss of thrust, which limits the rudder force required to maintain directional control of the airplane. Loss of the rudder boost system without warning before the moment rudder boost is needed could result in the inability of the flight crew to maintain the safe flight and landing of the airplane or loss of control of the airplane. The FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products. FAA’s Determination The FAA is issuing this AD because the agency has determined the unsafe condition described previously is likely to exist or develop in other products of the same type design. Related Service Information The FAA reviewed Garmin STC Service Bulletin No. 21120, Revision A, dated December 10, 2021. This service information specifies updating the software version of the GSA 9000 yaw servo to version 2.14. The FAA also reviewed Garmin Service Alert No. 21119, Revision A, dated November 18, 2021; and Garmin Service Alert No. 21119, Revision B, dated December 10, 2021. Revision A of this service information advises owners and operators of the unsafe condition previously described, while Revision B identifies the resolution by complying with Garmin STC Service Bulletin No. 21120, Revision A, dated December 10, 2021.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) U.S. Customs and 
Border Protection (CBP) published a notice of proposed rulemaking in 
the Federal Register, 81 FR 19932, April 6, 2016, proposing to exempt 
portions of the system of records from one or more provisions of the 
Privacy Act because of criminal, civil, and administrative enforcement 
requirements. DHS reissued the ``DHS/CBP-014 Regulatory Audit Archive 
System (RAAS) System of Records'' in the Federal Register at 81 FR 
19985, April 6, 2016, to provide notice to the public that DHS/CBP was 
updating the categories of records to include the capture of Employer 
Identification Numbers (EIN) or Social Security numbers (SSN), also 
known as a Federal Taxpayer Identifying Number, pursuant to 19 CFR 
24.5, 19 CFR 149.3, and Executive Order 9397, as amended by Executive 
Order 13748.
    DHS is revising the previously claimed exemptions from certain 
requirements of the Privacy Act for DHS/CBP-014 Regulatory Audit 
Archive System (RAAS) System of Records. DHS/CBP is not requesting an 
exemption with respect to information maintained in the system as it 
relates to data submitted by or on behalf of a subject of an audit. The 
Privacy Act requires DHS to maintain an accounting of the disclosures 
made pursuant to all routines uses. Disclosing the fact that a law 
enforcement or intelligence agency has sought particular records may 
affect ongoing law enforcement activity. Therefore, pursuant to 5 
U.S.C. 552a(k)(2), DHS will claim exemption from section (c)(3) of the 
Privacy Act of 1974, as amended, as is necessary and appropriate to 
protect this information.
    Some information in DHS/CBP-014 Regulatory Audit Archive System 
(RAAS) System of Records relates to official DHS law enforcement 
activities. These exemptions are needed to protect information relating 
to DHS law enforcement activities from disclosure to subjects or others 
related to these activities. Specifically, the exemptions are required 
to preclude subjects of these activities from frustrating these 
processes; to avoid disclosure of activity techniques; to protect the 
identities and physical safety of confidential informants and law 
enforcement personnel; to ensure DHS's ability to obtain information 
from third parties and other sources; to protect the privacy of third 
parties; and to safeguard classified information. Disclosure of 
information to the subject of the inquiry could also permit the subject 
to avoid detection or apprehension.
    The exemption proposed here is a standard law enforcement exemption 
exercised by a large number of federal law enforcement agencies. In 
appropriate circumstances, where compliance would not appear to 
interfere with or adversely affect the law enforcement purposes of this 
system and the overall law enforcement process, the applicable 
exemptions may be waived on a case-by-case basis.
    DHS/CBP invited comments on both the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking 
(NPRM) and System of Records Notice (SORN).

II. Public Comments

    DHS received no comments on the NPRM or the SORN and will implement 
the rulemaking as proposed.

Act

* * * * *
    25. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS)/U.S. Customs and 
Border Protection (CBP)-014 Regulatory Audit Archive System (RAAS) 
System of Records consists of electronic and paper records and will be 
used by DHS and its Components. The DHS/CBP-014 RAAS System of Records 
is a repository of information held by DHS in connection with its 
several and varied missions and functions, including, but not limited 
to, the enforcement of civil and criminal laws, and investigations, 
inquiries, and proceedings there under.

[[Page 6404]]

The DHS/CBP-014 RAAS System of Records contains information that is 
collected by, on behalf of, in support of, or in cooperation with DHS 
and its Components and may contain personally identifiable information 
collected by other federal, state, local, tribal, foreign, or 
international government agencies. The Secretary of Homeland Security, 
pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 552a(k)(2), has exempted this system from the 
following provisions of the Privacy Act: 5 U.S.C. 552a(c)(3). 
Exemptions from these particular subsections are justified, on a case-
by-case basis to be determined at the time a request is made, for the 
following reasons:
    (a) From subsection (c)(3) (Accounting for Disclosures) because 
release of the accounting of disclosures could alert the subject of an 
investigation of an actual or potential criminal, civil, or regulatory 
violation to the existence of that investigation and reveal 
investigative interest on the part of DHS as well as the recipient 
agency. Disclosure of the accounting would therefore present a serious 
impediment to law enforcement efforts and/or efforts to preserve 
national security. Disclosure of the accounting would also permit the 
individual who is the subject of a record to impede the investigation, 
to tamper with witnesses or evidence, and to avoid detection or 
apprehension, which would undermine the entire investigative process.
