31 CFR Part 1

RIN 1505-AC32

Privacy Act; Implementation

AGENCY: Office of the Secretary, Treasury.

ACTION: Correcting amendments.


SUMMARY: In accordance with the requirements of the Privacy Act of 
1974, as amended, 5 U.S.C. 552a, the Department of the Treasury is 
issuing a correction to the amendment of its Privacy Act regulations 
due to inadvertently omitting an exempt system of records from this 

DATES: Effective Date: September 28, 2012.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Brian Anderson, Privacy Act Officer, 
Department of the Treasury, at 202-622-0755, or by email at 
[email protected].

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On May 15, 2012, the Department of the 
Treasury issued a final rule revising 31 CFR 1.36 to reflect the 
transition, in 2003, of the United States Customs Service, the Federal 
Law Enforcement Training Center, and United States Secret Service from 
the Department of the Treasury to the Department of Homeland Security. 
In addition, the amendments reflect the 2003 transfer of certain 
functions of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) to the 
Department of Justice, and the remaining functions reorganized as the 
Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) within the Department of 
the Treasury, as well as other housekeeping changes. The final rule was 
effective upon publication.
    The Department found that one system of records for which an 
exemption pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 552a(j)(2) is claimed had inadvertently 
been omitted from the list of systems of records in the table found in 
section (c)(1)(ii). The proposed rule for the exempt system of records 
was published on January 14, 2010, beginning at 75 FR 2086. The final 
rule exempting Treasury/DO .220--SIGTARP Hotline Database was published 
on June 28, 2010, at 75 FR 36536.
    This regulation is being published as a final rule because the 
amendments do not impose any requirements on any member of the public. 
These amendments are the most efficient means for the Treasury 
Department to implement its internal requirements for complying with 
the Privacy Act.
    Accordingly, pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B) and (d)(3), the 
Department of the Treasury finds good cause that prior notice and other 
public procedures with respect to this rule are unnecessary, and good 
cause for making this final rule effective on the date of publication 
in the Federal Register.
    Pursuant to Executive Order 12866, it has been determined that this 
final rule is not a significant regulatory action, and therefore, does 
not require a regulatory impact analysis.
    Because no notice of proposed rulemaking is required, the 
provisions of the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601-612, do not
