In accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974, the Department of Homeland Security proposes to establish a new system of records titled, ``Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, DHS/CBP-018 Customs Trade Partnership Against Terrorism System of Records.'' This system of records allows the Department of Homeland Security/U.S. Customs and Border Protection, DHS/CBP-018, Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism to collect and maintain records about members of the trade community related to Customs and Border Protection's Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism program. Businesses accepted into the program, called partners, agree to analyze, measure, monitor, report, and enhance their supply chains in exchange for greater security and facilitated processing offered by Customs and Border Protection. The Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism program allows Customs and Border Protection to focus its resources on higher risk businesses and thereby assists the agency in achieving its mission to secure the border and facilitate the movement of legitimate international trade. This new system of records collects and manages information, including personally identifiable information, about prospective, ineligible, current, or former trade partners in Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism, and other entities and individuals in their supply chains. This system also collects and maintains information, including personally identifiable information, regarding members of a foreign government secure supply chain program that have been recognized by Customs and Border Protection, through a mutual recognition arrangement or comparable arrangement, as being compatible with the program. The Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism program provides a Security Link Portal, which allows partners and applicants to access and manage their information. Customs and Border Protection is publishing this new system of records notice in order to notify the public about the system, permit trade partners access to the information they provide, and offer a description of how and where information is collected and maintained. Additionally, the Department of Homeland Security is issuing a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking elsewhere in the Federal Register, to exempt this system of records from certain provisions of the Privacy Act. This newly established system will be included in the Department of Homeland Security's inventory of record systems.

On Tuesday, January 29, 2013, President Obama signed the Sandy Recovery Improvement Act of 2013, which includes a provision amending the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act to provide federally recognized Indian tribal governments the option to make a request directly to the President for a Federal emergency or major disaster declaration, or to seek assistance, as they do presently, under a declaration for a State. In support of preliminary implementation of this provision, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is engaging in a comprehensive consultation effort with federally recognized Indian tribal governments. To initiate that consultation, FEMA is soliciting comments regarding FEMA procedures for declaration requests from Indian tribal governments.
