Privacy Act of 1974; Department of Homeland Security/ALL-030 Use of the Terrorist Screening Database System of Records
Document Number: 2016-01167
Type: Notice
Date: 2016-01-22
Agency: Department of Homeland Security, Office of the Secretary
In accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) proposes to update and reissue a current Department-wide system of records titled, ``Department of Homeland Security(DHS)/ALL-030 Use of the Terrorist Screening Database (TSDB) System of Records,'' 76 FR 39408, July 6, 2011. This system of records allows the DHS to maintain a synchronized copy of the Department of Justice's (DOJ) Federal Bureau of Investigation's (FBI) Terrorist Screening Database (TSDB), which includes categories of individuals covered by DOJ/FBI-019, ``Terrorist Screening Records Center System,'' 72 FR 77846, Dec. 14, 2011. DHS maintains a synchronized copy to automate and simplify the transmission of information in the Terrorist Screening Database to DHS and its components. With this updated notice, DHS is adding two new consumers, Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Automated Targeting System (ATS) and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Fraud Detection and National Security (FDNS) Directorate, to the ``DHS Watchlist Service.'' The DHS Watchlist Service is the technological mechanism used to transmit Terrorist Screening Database information from the Department of Justice to the Department of Homeland Security, and to DHS components thereafter. DHS is also clarifying an existing category of individuals, adding two new categories of individuals, and clarifying the categories of records maintained in this system. Additionally, this notice includes non- substantive changes to simplify the formatting and text of the previously published notice. DHS is also issuing a new notice of proposed rulemaking to cover the exemptions applied to these new categories of individuals covered by this system of records notice. The notice of proposed rulemaking will be published concurrently with this notice. The existing Final Rule for Privacy Act exemptions will continue to apply until the new Final Rule is published. This updated system will be included in DHS's inventory of record systems.
