On April 1, 2020, the Board published a notice of proposed rulemaking to amend the Board's Privacy Act Rule, with a 30-day public comment period ending on May 1, 2020 and concurrently, in a separate notice, established BGFRS-43 as a new system of records.
The rulemaking proposed to add BGFRS-43 to the Board's list of exempt systems of records pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 552a(k)(2), which exempts the listed system of record from certain provisions of the Privacy Act to the extent the system contains investigatory material compiled for law enforcement purposes. The Board did not receive any comments on the proposed amendment to the Privacy Act Rule and therefore, Start Printed Page 73604the Board is adopting the proposed rule as final, without modification.
Accordingly, the Board is amending 12 CFR 261a.12(b) to redesignate paragraph (b)(11) referencing BGFRS/OIG-1 Investigative Records as paragraph (b)(12) and adding “BGFRS-43, Security Sharing Platform” as new paragraph (b)(11).
Regulatory Flexibility Act
In accordance with 5 U.S.C. 605, the Board certifies that this rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities because it applies only to internal personnel matters of the agency.
Administrative Procedure Act
This rule is exempt from the rulemaking provisions of the Administrative Procedure Act, 5 U.S.C. 553, and the Congressional Review Act, pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 804(3)(B) and (C), because it is a rule relating to agency management or personnel and a rule of agency procedure that does not substantially affect the rights or obligations of non-agency parties.
