Privacy Act of 1974; Systems of Records
Document Number: 2019-27584
Type: Notice
Date: 2019-12-27
Agency: Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Agencies and Commissions
Pursuant to the Privacy Act of 1974 and Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circular No. A-108, notice is hereby given that the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), proposes to modify 28 and rescind 9 of its system of records notices. The proposed modifications would include incorporating, for the convenience of readers, the full text of routine uses previously described in a Prefatory Statement of General Routine Uses directly into each individual system notice to which they apply, incorporating system-breach notification routine uses into each system notice in accordance with OMB Memorandum M-17-12, narrowing the scope of one system notice to eliminate, in accordance with OMB Circular A-108, the partial duplication of a government-wide system of records notice, and eliminating a redundant routine use from one system notice. Of the proposed rescindments of system notices, six would eliminate, in accordance with OMB Circular A-108, notices that duplicate government-wide system of records notices, and three would eliminate notices that are no longer necessary because the records they cover do not qualify as Privacy Act records. Additional details are provided in the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION section of this document.

Document Number: 2019-23594
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-12-27
Agency: Securities and Exchange Commission, Agencies and Commissions
We are proposing amendments that would modernize filing fee disclosure and payment methods. We are proposing to amend most fee- bearing forms, schedules, statements, and related rules to require each fee table and accompanying disclosure to include all required information for fee calculation in a structured format. The proposed amendments would add the option for fee payment via Automated Clearing House (``ACH'') and eliminate the option for fee payment via paper checks and money orders. The proposed amendments are intended to improve filing fee preparation and payment processing by facilitating both enhanced validation through fee structuring and lower-cost, easily routable payments through the ACH payment option. Finally, the Commission proposes other amendments to enhance the efficiency of the fee process.
