Privacy Act of 1974; Department of Homeland Security/Transportation Security Administration-DHS/TSA-021 TSA Pre✓TM
Document Number: 2013-21979
Type: Notice
Date: 2013-09-10
Agency: Department of Homeland Security, Office of the Secretary
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 titled, ``Department of Homeland Security/ Transportation Security AdministrationDHS/TSA-021 TSA Pre[check]TM Application Program System of Records.'' This system of records allows the Department of Homeland Security/ Transportation Security Administration to collect and maintain records on individuals who voluntarily submit information to the Transportation Security Administration for use by the agency to perform a security threat assessment. The security threat assessment will be used to identify persons who pose a low risk to transportation security and therefore may be eligible for expedited screening at participating U.S. airport security checkpoints. Additionally, the Department of Homeland Security is issuing a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking elsewhere in the Federal Register to exempt some records from 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 systems of records.

Safety and Environmental Management System Requirements for Vessels on the U.S. Outer Continental Shelf
Document Number: 2013-21938
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2013-09-10
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
The Coast Guard intends to promulgate regulations that will require vessels engaged in OCS activities (defined in 33 CFR Chapter I, Subchapter N) to develop, implement, and maintain a vessel-specific Safety and Environmental Management System (SEMS) that incorporates the management program and principles of the American Petroleum Institute's Recommended Practice for Development of a Safety and Environmental Management Program for Offshore Operations and Facilities, Third Edition, May 2004 (API RP 75). The Coast Guard intends for this SEMS to be developed and implemented by the vessel's owner or operator and compatible with a designated lease operator's SEMS required under Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE) regulations. The Coast Guard seeks comments on whether a SEMS that incorporates the management program and principles of API RP 75 is appropriate for vessels engaged in OCS activities, would reduce risk and casualties, and improve safety on the OCS. Comments should address the feasibility of implementing a SEMS that incorporates API RP 75, the compatibility with BSEE SEMS regulations, potential methods of oversight, safety issues, costs and regulatory burdens, and other issues of concern to the regulated community and general public. The Coast Guard would use such comments to assist in developing these new regulations.
