Notice of a new system of records.


NCUA proposes to add a new system of records titled “Credit Union Service Organization Registry System” to its inventory of records systems subject to the Privacy Act of 1974 (5 U.S.C. 552a), as amended. This action is necessary to meet the requirements of the Privacy Act that federal agencies publish in the Federal Register a notice of the existence and character of records it maintains that are retrieved by an individual identifier (5 U.S.C. 552a(e)(4)).


Submit comments on or before August 31, 2015. This action will be effective without further notice on September 8, 2015 unless comments are received that would result in a contrary determination.


You may submit comments by any of the following methods, but please send comments by one method only:
