DHS/USCIS RIN: 1615-AC29 Publication ID: Spring 2020 
Title: Privacy Act of 1974: Implementation of Exemptions; Department of Homeland Security/U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services-018 Immigration Biometric and Background Check (IBBC) System of Records  

On July 31, 2018, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) proposed an exemption to a system of records notice in a rulemaking that was published at 83 FR 36792. The system of records notice, Immigration Biometric and Background Check System of Records, was published on July 31, 2018 at 83 FR 36950. USCIS plans to reissue the Immigration Biometric and Background Check System of Records and proposed exemptions  to address public comments.  The purpose of this system of records is to verify identity and conduct criminal and national security background checks in order to establish an individual’s eligibility for an immigration benefit or other request, and support domestic and international data sharing efforts. In the proposed rulemaking, DHS sought public comment on its proposal to exempt the system of records from one or more provisions of the Privacy Act because of criminal, civil, and administrative enforcement requirements.
