EQUAL EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITY COMMISSION
Equal Employment Opportunity Commission
CFR Citation: 29 CFR Part 1611
DOCUMENT ACTION: Final rule.
Privacy Act Fee Schedule
DATES: Effective Date: March 7, 2006.
The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC or the Commission) is adopting revisions to its Privacy Act fee schedule. The updated schedule of fees conforms to EEOC's Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) fee schedule which was recently updated (70 FR 57510 of October 3, 2005).
Freedom of Information Act; implementation; Privacy Act fee schedule; revision,
On December 12, 2005, at 70 FR 73413, the
EEOC published a notice of proposed rulemaking proposing to amend 29
CFR 1611.11 which concerns the fees assessed to persons who request
records under the Privacy Act, 5 U.S.C. 552a. The changes conform the
fees charged under the Privacy Act to the fees charged under the FOIA.
See 29 CFR 1610.15, as amended by 70 FR 57510 (2005). Comments from the
public were due on or before January 11, 2006. No comments were
received. Therefore, EEOC is adopting the proposed revisions, without change, as its final rule.
Executive Order 12866
Pursuant to Executive Order 12866, EEOC has determined that the regulation will not have an annual effect on the economy of $100 million or more or adversely affect in a material way the economy, a sector of the economy, productivity, competition, jobs, the environment, public health or safety, or State or local tribal governments or communities. Therefore, a detailed costbenefit assessment of the regulation is not required.
Paperwork Reduction Act
This rule contains no new information collection requirements subject to review by the Office of Management and Budget under the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35).
Regulatory Flexibility Act
The Commission, in accordance with the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 606(b)), has reviewed this regulation and by approving it certifies that this regulation will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities.
Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995
This rule will not result in the expenditure by State, local, or
tribal governments, in the aggregate, or by the private sector, of $100
million or more in any one year, and it will not significantly or
uniquely affect small governments. Therefore, no actions were deemed
necessary under the provisions of the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995.
