Privacy Act of 1974; System of Records
Document Number: 2018-08453
Type: Notice
Date: 2018-04-24
Agency: Department of Homeland Security
In accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) proposes to establish a new DHS system of records titled, ``Department of Homeland Security/ALL-041 External Biometric Records (EBR) System of Records.'' This system of records allows the DHS to receive, maintain, and disseminate biometric and associated biographic information from non-DHS entities, both foreign and domestic, for the following purposes pursuant to formal or informal information sharing agreements or arrangements (``external information''), or with the express approval of the entity from which the Department received biometric and associated biographic information: Law enforcement; national security; immigration screening; border enforcement; intelligence; national defense; and background investigations relating to national security positions, credentialing, and certain positions of public trust, consistent with applicable DHS authorities. Department of Homeland Security/ALL-041 External Biometric Records (EBR) System of Records (SOR) is one of two replacement system of records notices (SORN) for DHS/US-VISIT-001 DHS Automated Biometric Identification System (IDENT). This SORN applies to records provided to DHS by non-DHS entities that do not fall under existing Component/DHS SORNs. The other replacement for the IDENT SORN will be a forthcoming technical SORN focused on the technical aspects of the IDENT system. After the technical SORN is published, DHS will rescind the IDENT SORN by publishing a notice of rescindment in the Federal Register. Components are responsible for maintaining SORN coverage for biometric and associated biographic information collected by that Component. Additionally, DHS is issuing a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) to exempt this system of records from certain provisions of the Privacy Act, elsewhere in the Federal Register. This newly established system will be included in the Department of Homeland Security's inventory of record systems.

Agency: Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Customs and Border Protection
The Generalized System of Preferences (GSP) is a renewable preferential trade program that allows the eligible products of designated beneficiary developing countries to enter the United States free of duty. The GSP program expired on December 31, 2017, but has been renewed through December 31, 2020, effective April 22, 2018, with retroactive effect between January 1, 2018, through April 21, 2018, by a provision in the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2018.

Formal and informal entries that were filed electronically via the Automated Broker Interface (ABI) using Special Program Indicator (SPI) Code ``A'' as a prefix to the tariff number will be automatically processed by CBP and no further action by the filer is required to initiate the refund process. Non-ABI filers, and ABI filers that did not include SPI Code ``A'' on the entry, must timely submit a duty refund request to CBP. CBP will continue conducting verifications to ensure that GSP benefits are available to eligible entries only.

Federal Policy for the Protection of Human Subjects: Proposed Six Month Delay of the General Compliance Date While Allowing the Use of Three Burden-Reducing Provisions During the Delay Period
Document Number: 2018-08231
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-04-20
Agency: Agency for International Development, Agencies and Commissions, Department of Transportation, Social Security Administration, National Science Foundation, National Aeronautics and Space Administration, Department of Labor, Department of Housing and Urban Development, Department of Homeland Security, Department of Health and Human Services, Environmental Protection Agency, Department of Energy, Department of Education, Department of Defense, Consumer Product Safety Commission, Department of Commerce, Department of Agriculture, Department of Veterans Affairs
In a final rule published on January 19, 2017, federal departments and agencies made revisions to the Federal Policy for the Protection of Human Subjects (hereafter the ``2018 Requirements''). The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) adopted the same regulatory changes in a separate final rule published on September 18, 2017. The 2018 Requirements were scheduled to become effective on January 19, 2018, with a general compliance date of January 19, 2018 (with the exception of the revisions to the cooperative research provision). The departments and agencies listed in this document have also published an interim final rule delaying the effective date and general compliance date for the 2018 Requirements for six months, to cover the time period of January 19, 2018 until July 19, 2018. As per the interim final rule, the effective date of the 2018 Requirements is now July 19, 2018. The departments and agencies listed in this document propose delaying the general compliance date for the 2018 Requirements for an additional six months, for the time period of July 19, 2018 until January 21, 2019. This proposed rule is intended to provide additional time to regulated entities for the preparations necessary to implement the 2018 Requirements. This proposed rule, if finalized, would require regulated entities to continue to comply with the requirements of the current Federal Policy for the Protection of Human Subjects (hereafter the ``pre-2018 Requirements'') until January 21, 2019. This proposal also takes comment on whether to permit institutions to implement, for certain research studies, the following provisions in the 2018 Requirements during the period from July 19, 2018, until January 21, 2019, that the general compliance date is delayed. Those three provisions, intended to reduce burdens on regulated entities, are the 2018 Requirements' definition of ``research,'' which deems certain activities not to be research, the allowance for no annual continuing review of certain categories of research, and the elimination of the requirement that institutional review boards (IRBs) review grant applications related to the research. The way that this option is proposed, regulated entities would be required to comply with all pre- 2018 Requirements during the period that the general compliance date is delayed, except for provisions substituted by the three burden-reducing provisions of the 2018 Requirements. As described in section III, below, this flexibility is proposed only for studies for which an institution makes a choice to transition to comply with the 2018 Requirements, beginning on July 19, 2018. In order to clearly describe this proposed flexibility, including how it would impact institutions choosing to transition research to comply with the 2018 Requirements, this document proposes a redrafted transition provision.
