OMB Announces Conditional Approval of Declassification Rules

Yesterday the OMB web site included the announcement that the draft of the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) notice of proposed rule making (NPRM) to update its regulations on the declassification of classified documents. The OMB approval is ‘consistent with change’ meaning that OMB has asked for some changes in the NPRM.

The NPRM will implement changes to the handling of classified information mandated by President’ Executive Order 13526.

This rule will not directly affect the CFATS program because the Chemical-Terrorism Vulnerability Information (CVI) program is not ‘classified information’. The philosophy guiding the development of this rule, however, may be expected to carry over to future regulations on CVI, and other unclassified but sensitive information control programs.
