Intercountry Adoption-Reporting on Non-Convention and Convention Adoptions of Emigrating Children
Document Number: 06-7526
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2006-09-13
Agency: Department of State
The Department of State (the Department), with the joint review and approval of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), is proposing a new rule to implement the requirement in the Intercountry Adoption Act of 2000 (the IAA) to establish a Case Registry for, inter alia, emigrating children. This proposed rule would impose reporting requirements on adoption service providers, including governmental authorities who provide adoption services, in cases involving adoptions of children who will emigrate from the United States. These reporting obligations apply to all intercountry adoptions, regardless of whether they are covered under the 1993 Hague Convention on Protection of Children and Co-operation in Respect of Intercountry Adoption (the Convention). This proposed rule, although issued with the joint review and approval of DHS pursuant to section 303(d) of the IAA, only adds a new section to the Department's Convention regulations; no amendments or additions are made to DHS regulations.

Publication, Coordination, and Reporting of International Agreements: Amendments
Document Number: E6-14850
Type: Rule
Date: 2006-09-08
Agency: Department of State
The Department of State is updating the regulations implementing 1 U.S.C. 112a and 112b in order to reflect amendments to the statutes governing publication of U.S. international agreements and their transmittal to the Congress. It will not be publishing certain categories of international agreements in the compilation entitled ``United States Treaties and Other International Agreements'' or in the ``Treaties and Other International Acts Series.'' Further, the regulations are being amended to reflect adjustments to certain internal procedures within the State Department on the reporting of international agreements to Congress. Finally, the Department is adding a new requirement concerning procedures for consultation with the Secretary of State in the negotiation and conclusion of international agreements. Where an international agreement could reasonably require for its implementation the issuance of a significant domestic regulatory action, agencies proposing the agreement are to consult in a timely manner with the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), and the Department of State should confirm that timely consultations were undertaken.
