Department of Homeland Security May 22, 2009 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Imported Directly Requirement Under the United States-Bahrain Free Trade Agreement
Document Number: E9-11986
Type: Rule
Date: 2009-05-22
Agency: Customs and Border Protection Bureau, Department of Homeland Security, Department of the Treasury
This document amends the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) regulations in title 19 of the Code of Federal Regulations (19 CFR) on an interim basis to change certain provisions relating to the requirement under the United States-Bahrain Free Trade Agreement (BFTA) that a good must be ``imported directly'' from one BFTA Party to the other Party to qualify for preferential tariff treatment. The change involves removing the condition that a good passing through the territory of an intermediate country while en route from a Party to the other Party must remain under the control of the customs authority of the intermediate country. This change more closely conforms these regulatory provisions to the BFTA and the BFTA implementing statute.

In accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974 the Department of Homeland Security proposes to establish a new Department of Homeland Security system of records notice titled, DHS/USCIS009 Compliance Tracing and Monitoring System (CTMS). CTMS collects and uses information necessary to support monitoring and compliance activities for researching and managing misuse, abuse, discrimination, breach of privacy, and fraudulent use of USCIS Verification Division's verification programs, the Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements (SAVE) and E-Verify. Additionally, the Department of Homeland Security is issuing a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking concurrent with this system of records elsewhere in the Federal Register. This newly established system will be included in the Department of Homeland Security's inventory of records systems.
Privacy Act of 1974: Implementation of Exemptions; U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services 009 Compliance Tracking and Management System (CTMS)
Document Number: E9-11966
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2009-05-22
Agency: Department of Homeland Security, Office of the Secretary
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is amending its regulations to exempt portions of a system of records from certain provisions of the Privacy Act of 1974. Specifically, DHS proposes to exempt portions of the Compliance Tracking and Management System (CTMS) from one or more provisions of the Privacy Act because of criminal, civil and administrative enforcement requirements. CTMS is a system of records that DHS will use to support the Verification Division of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). CTMS collects and uses information necessary for DHS to support monitoring and compliance activities for researching and managing misuse, abuse, discrimination, breach of privacy, and fraudulent use of information obtained through two USCIS Verification Division programs: Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements (SAVE); and E-Verify.
