ACTION:

Meeting notice.

SUMMARY:

The purpose of this notice is to announce a meeting of the National Crime Prevention and Privacy Compact Council (Council) created by the National Crime Prevention and Privacy Compact Act of 1998 (Compact). Thus far, the Federal Government and 29 states are parties to the Compact which governs the exchange of criminal history records for licensing, employment, and similar purposes. The Compact also provides a legal framework for the establishment of a cooperative federal-state system to exchange such records.

The United States Attorney General appointed 15 persons from state and federal agencies to serve on the Council. The Council will prescribe system rules and procedures for the effective and proper operation of the Interstate Identification Index system for noncriminal justice purposes.

Matters for discussion are expected to include:

(1) Rap Back.

(2) Guiding principle documents outlining privacy rights for agencies and applicants use during fingerprint-based background checks.

(3) The National Background Check System Task Force recommendation on potential reimbursable arrangements for National Fingerprint File participants.

The meeting will be open to the public on a first-come, first-seated basis.
