This notice benefits the public in advising them where to send such requests for declassification review.

It is the policy of OPIC to act in matters relating to national security information in accordance with Executive Order 13526 and directives issued there-under by the Information Security Oversight Office (ISOO). OPIC does not have the authority to classify national security information. Documents that are originally classified outside of OPIC must be sent to that respective agency to be reviewed for declassification. Requests for classified information in OPIC's custody are forwarded to the classifying agency for review.
