Document Number: E8-17126
Type: Notice
Date: 2008-07-25
Agency: Department of Homeland Security, Office of the Secretary
In accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Department of Homeland Security proposes to add the following system of records to its inventory of records systems, the Non-Federal Entity Data System. Certain States, Native American Tribes, Canadian Provinces and Territories, and other non-Federal Governmental Authorities may make available travel documents, such as Enhanced Driver's Licenses (EDLs), that may be deemed by the Secretary of DHS as denoting identity and citizenship for purposes of the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative (WHTI), upon implementation, as mandated by the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004, Pub. L. 108-458, 118 Stat. 3638 (2004). It is anticipated that all such documents will utilize facilitative technology such as Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), and contain a Machine Readable Zone (MRZ) using Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology. In certain instances, other non-federal and foreign government authorities may provide to CBP biographical information and photographs that have been voluntarily submitted to the issuing entity by individuals choosing to apply for such travel documents, with the understanding that this information will be provided to DHS and CBP. DHS will use this information to facilitate the validation of travel documents when an individual crosses the border.
Privacy Act of 1974; U.S. Customs and Border Protection-Border Crossing Information, Systems of Records
Document Number: E8-17123
Type: Notice
Date: 2008-07-25
Agency: Department of Homeland Security, Office of the Secretary
Pursuant to the Privacy Act of 1974, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) gives notice that it is establishing a distinct System of Records, Border Crossing Information (BCI). BCI will receive and maintain border crossing information on travelers who are admitted or paroled into the United States, this information includes: Certain biographical information; a photograph; certain itinerary information provided by air and sea carriers and any other forms of passenger transportation, including rail, which is or may subsequently be mandated, or is or may be provided on a voluntary basis; and the time and location of the border crossing. Previously, maintenance of this border crossing information was covered by the Treasury Enforcement Communications System (TECS) ``system of records notice.'' See 66 FR 52984, dated October 18, 2001. As part of DHS's ongoing effort to increase transparency regarding the collection of information at the Department, as well as its efforts to specifically review the personally identifiable information maintained on the TECS information technology platform, DHS and CBP have identified different data sets that call for individual notice so as to provide appropriate routine uses, retention, and exemptions to the Privacy Act. This system of records notice does not identify or create any new collection of information, rather, the Department is providing additional notice and transparency with respect to the handling of an existing collection of information, by separately noticing its collection as a distinct system of records.

This document is a republication of the Treasury Department exemption regulation (title 31, Code of Federal Regulations, part 1) which previously covered the Border Crossing Information as part of the Treasury Enforcement Communications System (TECS) System of Records Notice.

Uniform Rules of Origin for Imported Merchandise
Document Number: E8-17025
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2008-07-25
Agency: Department of Homeland Security, Department of the Treasury, Bureau of Customs and Border Protection
This document proposes to amend the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (``CBP'') Regulations to establish uniform rules governing CBP determinations of the country of origin of imported merchandise. This proposal would extend application of the country of origin rules codified in 19 CFR part 102. Those rules have proven to be more objective and transparent and provide greater predictability in determining the country of origin of imported merchandise than the system of case-by-case adjudication they would replace. The proposed change also will aid an importer's exercise of reasonable care. In addition, this document proposes to amend the country of origin rules applicable to pipe fittings and flanges, printed greeting cards, glass optical fiber, and rice preparations. Finally, this document proposes amendments to the textile regulations set forth in Sec. 102.21 to make corrections so that the regulations reflect the language of section 334(b)(5) of the Uruguay Round Agreement Act.

Disaster Assistance Directorate Policy Numbers 9100.1 and 9523.1 Snow Assistance and Severe Winter Storm Policy
Document Number: E8-16866
Type: Notice
Date: 2008-07-24
Agency: Federal Emergency Management Agency, Department of Homeland Security
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) proposes to revise its Snow Assistance and Severe Winter Storm Policy. The current policy provides the procedures and requirements for FEMA in making recommendations to the President for either a declaration of emergency or a major disaster resulting from a snowstorm. This proposed policy would maintain the current policy requirement that a county experience a ``record or near-record'' snowfall, but also would require that the State meet the requirements of a major disaster declaration. It would stipulate that the Governor must direct execution of the State emergency plan and the State must demonstrate that the capabilities of the State to effectively respond to the event are or will be exceeded. States and communities requesting aid also would be required to submit an estimate of eligible public assistance costs (estimate of public assistance divided by county and State populations, respectively), including snow assistance costs for a 48-hour period that meet or exceed the county and statewide per capita cost threshold. These proposed criteria are used by FEMA solely for consideration in making recommendations to the President and do not bind the ability of the President, in his discretion, to make declarations of emergencies or major disasters.
