DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY, U.S. Customs and Border Protection
Effective: November 17, 2015.
19 CFR Parts 103, 161, and 175
This final rule amends the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (“CBP”) Freedom of Information Act (“FOIA”) regulations. Due to the transfer of CBP from the Department of the Treasury to the Department of Homeland Security (“DHS”), and the subsequent promulgation of DHS FOIA regulations which provide that the DHS FOIA regulations generally apply to all DHS components, most of the CBP FOIA regulations have been functionally superseded. This document sets forth that, with the exception of a regulation pertaining to the treatment of confidential commercial information, CBP will apply the DHS FOIA and Privacy Act regulations for purposes of administering the FOIA. This final rule removes outdated regulations, aligns CBP's regulatory procedures for processing FOIA requests with those of DHS, thereby creating a consistent standard among the DHS components, and brings CBP within compliance of the FOIA guidelines developed by OMB.

This rule proposes to amend the Department of Homeland Security's (DHS) regulations under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). The Department (DHS) is proposing to update and streamline the language of several procedural provisions, and to incorporate changes brought about by the amendments to the FOIA under the OPEN Government Act of 2007, among other changes.
