Title: E-Discovery Privacy Act SORN and Privacy Act Exemptions 
Abstract: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is exempting its E-Discovery system (EPA-63) from certain subsections of the affirmative access and amendment provisions of the Privacy Act under 5 U.S.C. 552a. EPA-63 is a system of records maintained by the Office of Environmental Information, Office of Information Collection, Records and Content Management Branch on behalf of the Criminal Investigation Division, Office of Criminal Enforcement, Forensics, and Training. This EPA component performs activities pertaining to the enforcement of criminal laws. Because the E-Discovery system is used for civil and criminal cases and investigations, this rulemaking seeks to exempt the system from certain affirmative access and amendment provisions under U.S.C. 552a(k)(2) for non-law enforcement agencies who bring civil and criminal enforcement actions, and U.S.C. 552a (j)(2) which is primarily for law enforcement agencies.
