CBP is updating this system of records notice to reflect changes to its authorities, category of records, and routine uses. Specifically, these changes include expanding the category of records to permit the collection of Employer Identification Numbers (EINs) or Social Security numbers (SSNs), also known as a Federal Taxpayer Identifying Number, and business records associated with the audit from customs brokers, importers, and other parties via merchandise entry documentation. CBP is clarifying the authorities section to include updated and more narrowly tailored authorities to permit the collection of EIN or SSN.

Lastly, this notice includes non-substantive changes to simplify the formatting and text of the previously published notice. Additionally, DHS is issuing a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking to reduce the current exemptions for this system of records from certain provisions of the Privacy Act elsewhere in the Federal Register. The previously issued Final Rule for DHS/CBP-014 RAAS (Aug. 31, 2009, 74 FR 45076) remains in effect until a new Final Rule is issued. This updated system will be included in the DHS inventory of record systems.
