When DOT last revised its regulations implementing the Privacy Act (62 FR 23666; May 1, 1997), we unintentionally omitted the Maritime Administration as an agency of DOT subject to these regulations. It is and has been all along; hence, this correction merely clarifies that fact.

Analysis of Regulatory Impacts

This editorial correction is not a change in the existing rule; therefore, it is not a “significant regulatory action” within the meaning of Executive Order 12866, or significant within the definition in DOT's Regulatory Policies and Procedures, 49 FR 11034 (1979). It has no economic impact. I certify that this correction will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities.

This editorial correction does not significantly affect the environment, and therefore an environmental impact statement is not required under the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969. It has also been reviewed under Executive Order 12612, Federalism, and it has been determined that it does not have sufficient implications for federalism to warrant preparation of a Federalism Assessment.

Finally, the correction does not contain any collection of information requirements requiring review under the Paperwork Reduction Act, as amended.
