(c) Availability of Agreements to Parties.— The Secretary shall submit a copy of a compliance agreement to each person who filed a complaint referred to in section 6716 (b), or, if an agreement under subsection (a)(1), each person who filed a complaint with a governmental authority, about a failure to comply with section 6711 (a) or (b).
