DOL/OS RIN: 1290-AA30 Publication ID: Spring 2017 
Title: Department of Labor Freedom of Information Act Regulations 

This proposed rule would implement the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act, 5 U.S.C. 552, as amended. The rule would supersede the Department’s current FOIA regulations, located at 29 CFR 70, by incorporating substantive and administrative changes mandated by the Openness Promotes Effectiveness in our National Government Act of 2007 (OPEN Government Act), reflect changes in DOL’s administrative structure, and organize the regulations to more closely match those of other executive branch agencies for ease of reference. The rule will also reflect the disclosure principles established in the FOIA Policy Memoranda issued on January 12, 2009, and March 19, 2009, respectively.
