I. Background

OFLC's National Office provides program leadership and policy guidance, and develops regulations and procedures to implement the responsibilities of the Secretary under the Department's foreign labor certification programs. 20 CFR 655.2(a), 656.3.

OFLC's Atlanta National Processing Center (ANPC) primarily processes labor certification applications filed by, or on behalf of, employers seeking to permanently employ foreign workers in the U.S., as well as labor condition applications or labor attestations for the E-3, H-1B, and H-1B1 visa classifications. OFLC's expanded use of technology allows for the electronic filing of employer applications and facilitates the transmission and exchange of official notifications and supporting documents. As a result, OFLC strongly urges stakeholders to continue to, or begin to, register online for submitting applications and uploading all required or responsive documents directly into the PERM Online System (https://www.plc.doleta.gov/​) or Foreign Labor Application Gateway (FLAG) System Start Printed Page 37767(https://flag.dol.gov/​), as appropriate. All mail related to these applications is currently submitted to the ANPC's physical mailing address at: U.S. Department of Labor, Employment and Training Administration, Office of Foreign Labor Certification, Atlanta National Processing Center, Harris Tower, 233 Peachtree Street NE, Suite 410, Atlanta, GA 30303.

This Notice informs the public about a change of address for ANPC. As specified below, with the exception of mail associated with the processing of applications requesting permanent labor certification subject to supervised recruitment under 20 CFR 656.21, the address change for ANPC is effective on August 25, 2021.

II. ANPC's New Address

Effective August 25, 2021, any mail, including U.S. Postal Service and other courier mail or parcel delivery packages, etc., sent to ANPC must be submitted to the following new mailing address: U.S. Department of Labor, Employment and Training Administration, Office of Foreign Labor Certification, 200 Constitution Avenue NW, Room N-5311, Washington, DC 20210.

If the required 10-day posting period for a NOF commences after September 5, 2021, employers must include the new mailing address contained in this notice. 20 CFR 656.10(d)(3)(iii).

The correct new mailing address above must be used as of August 25, 2021.
