I. Background

In accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974, 5 U.S.C. 552a, the Department of Transportation (DOT)/Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) proposes to retire DOT system of records titled, “Department of Transportation/Federal Aviation Administration (DOT/FAA) 813 Civil Aviation Security System of Records.”

This system was originally established to collect and maintain records on hijacking or attempted hijacking incidents at airports or aboard civil aviation aircraft, information on K-9 assignments to airports, K-9 handler evaluations and information necessary to manage the Federal Air Marshals (FAM).

Following September 11, 2001 Congress passed the Aviation and Transportation Security Act (ATSA) (Pub. L. 107-71) which established the Transportation Security Administration (TSA). The ATSA transferred the TSA from the Department of Transportation to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

The ATSA transferred responsibility for civil aviation security from the FAA to TSA on February 22, 2002. A Transfer of Function Memo (October 30, 2003) from the FAA Assistant Administrator, Office of Security and Hazardous Materials, to the FAA Freedom of Information Staff and the Director of TSA, Freedom of Information Office, memorializes the transfer of function. The memo evidences that all records maintained in accordance with the DOT/FAA 813 Civil Aviation Security System of Records notice were transferred to the TSA. The FAA kept only duplicate copies of Civil Aviation Security records that related to the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, but no longer maintains these copies.

Retiring this FAA system of records notice will have no adverse impact on individuals because the records and functions were transferred from the FAA to TSA.

SYSTEM NAME AND NUMBER:

Department of Transportation/Federal Aviation Administration (DOT/FAA) 813 Civil Aviation Security System of Records

HISTORY:

A full notice of this system of records, DOT/FAA 813 Civil Aviation Security System, was last published in the Federal Register on April 11, 2000 (65 FR 19519).
