National Archives and Records Administration (NARA).
This final rule revises NARA's policy on the inspection of personal property in the possession of a contractor, employee, student intern, visitor, volunteer or other person on NARA properties. Because NARA's current regulations apply specifically only to visitors on NARA property, the final rule clarifies that all persons arriving on, working at, visiting, or departing from NARA property are subject to the inspection of their personal property. The final rule also amends NARA's current regulations to include additional properties under NARA control. This rule will affect members of the public, members of Federal agencies, NARA employees, NARA contract-employees and NARA volunteers.
Effective Date: Effective January 19, 2007.Start Further Info

The proposed rule was published in the September 26, 2006, Federal Register (71 FR 56919) for a 60-day comment period. Notification of user groups occurred following publication of the proposed rule. NARA received no comments on the proposed rule and therefore is issuing the final rule with no changes.
This final rule is not a significant regulatory action for the purposes of Executive Order 12866 and has not been reviewed by the Office of Management and Budget. As required by the Regulatory Flexibility Act, I certify that this rule will not have a significant impact on a substantial number of small entities because the final rule affects NARA contractors, employees, student interns, visitors, volunteers and other persons on NARA controlled property. This regulation does not have any federalism implications. This rule is not a major rule as defined in 5 U.S.C. Chapter 8, Congressional Review of Agency Rulemaking.Start List of Subjects
