SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Commission is deleting five systems of records: CPSC-16, Equal Employment Opportunity Counseling Files; CPSC-18, Procurement Integrity Files; CPSC-19, Office of Hazard Identification and Reduction Tracking System; CPSC-21, Contractor Personnel Security System File; and CPSC-22, Management Information System. CPSC-16, Equal Employment Opportunity Counseling Files, is now covered by a government-wide system of records notice, EEOC/GOVT-1 published by the Office of Equal Opportunity, Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. CPSC-18, Procurement Integrity Files no longer exists and is being deleted. CPSC-19, Office of Hazard Identification and Reduction Tracking System contains individuals' names but does not meet the definition of a “system of records” for purposes of the Privacy Act. CPSC-22, Management Information System, is no longer maintained as a system of records although MIS codes are used in a system maintained by the Department of Interior's National Business Center and covered under their system of records notice. CPSC-21, Contractor Personnel Security System File information is merged with CPSC-20, Personnel Security File and no longer exists as a separate system of records.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission is also announcing a new system of records, CPSC-23, Equal Employment Opportunity Disability/Accommodation Files. This system will be used to maintain records of employees who initiate reasonable accommodation requests under the Rehabilitation Act, 29 U.S.C. 794, and Americans with Disabilities Act, 42 U.S.C. 12101.

The Congress and the Office of Management and Budget have been notified of the new system of records.
