              the Federal Register (44 U.S.C. 1510).

          It is prohibited to use NARA's official seal and the stylized Code

              Archivist of the United States or the Archivist's designee. 
              Any person using NARA's official seals and logos in a manner 
              inconsistent with the provisions of 36 CFR part 1200 is

                               EXPLANATION

    The Code of Federal Regulations is a codification of the general and 
permanent rules published in the Federal Register by the Executive 
departments and agencies of the Federal Government. The Code is divided 
into 50 titles which represent broad areas subject to Federal 
regulation. Each title is divided into chapters which usually bear the 
name of the issuing agency. Each chapter is further subdivided into 
parts covering specific regulatory areas.
    Each volume of the Code is revised at least once each calendar year 
and issued on a quarterly basis approximately as follows:

Title 1 through Title 16.................................as of January 1
Title 17 through Title 27..................................as of April 1
Title 28 through Title 41...................................as of July 1
Title 42 through Title 50................................as of October 1

    The appropriate revision date is printed on the cover of each 
volume.

LEGAL STATUS

    The contents of the Federal Register are required to be judicially 
noticed (44 U.S.C. 1507). The Code of Federal Regulations is prima facie 
evidence of the text of the original documents (44 U.S.C. 1510).

HOW TO USE THE CODE OF FEDERAL REGULATIONS

    The Code of Federal Regulations is kept up to date by the individual 
issues of the Federal Register. These two publications must be used 
together to determine the latest version of any given rule.
    To determine whether a Code volume has been amended since its 
revision date (in this case, January 1, 2005), consult the ``List of CFR 
Sections Affected (LSA),'' which is issued monthly, and the ``Cumulative 
List of Parts Affected,'' which appears in the Reader Aids section of 
the daily Federal Register. These two lists will identify the Federal 
Register page number of the latest amendment of any given rule.

EFFECTIVE AND EXPIRATION DATES

    Each volume of the Code contains amendments published in the Federal 
Register since the last revision of that volume of the Code. Source 
citations for the regulations are referred to by volume number and page 
number of the Federal Register and date of publication. Publication 
dates and effective dates are usually not the same and care must be 
exercised by the user in determining the actual effective date. In 
instances where the effective date is beyond the cut-off date for the 
Code a note has been inserted to reflect the future effective date. In 
those instances where a regulation published in the Federal Register 
states a date certain for expiration, an appropriate note will be 
inserted following the text.

OMB CONTROL NUMBERS

    The Paperwork Reduction Act of 1980 (Pub. L. 96-511) requires 
Federal agencies to display an OMB control number with their information 
collection request.

[[Page vi]]

Many agencies have begun publishing numerous OMB control numbers as 
amendments to existing regulations in the CFR. These OMB numbers are 
placed as close as possible to the applicable recordkeeping or reporting 
requirements.

OBSOLETE PROVISIONS

    Provisions that become obsolete before the revision date stated on 
the cover of each volume are not carried. Code users may find the text 
of provisions in effect on a given date in the past by using the 
appropriate numerical list of sections affected. For the period before 
January 1, 2001, consult either the List of CFR Sections Affected, 1949-
1963, 1964-1972, 1973-1985, or 1986-2000, published in 11 separate 
volumes. For the period beginning January 1, 2001, a ``List of CFR 
Sections Affected'' is published at the end of each CFR volume.

CFR INDEXES AND TABULAR GUIDES

    A subject index to the Code of Federal Regulations is contained in a 
separate volume, revised annually as of January 1, entitled CFR Index 
and Finding Aids. This volume contains the Parallel Table of Statutory 
Authorities and Agency Rules (Table I). A list of CFR titles, chapters, 
and parts and an alphabetical list of agencies publishing in the CFR are 
also included in this volume.
    An index to the text of ``Title 3--The President'' is carried within 
that volume.
    The Federal Register Index is issued monthly in cumulative form. 
This index is based on a consolidation of the ``Contents'' entries in 
the daily Federal Register.
    A List of CFR Sections Affected (LSA) is published monthly, keyed to 
the revision dates of the 50 CFR titles.

REPUBLICATION OF MATERIAL

    There are no restrictions on the republication of textual material 
appearing in the Code of Federal Regulations.

edition of the Federal Register to present a compact and practical code 
called the ``Code of Federal Regulations'', to contain each Federal

Sec. 8.2  Orderly development.

section, the Director shall consult with each agency directly affected 
by the proposed change.



Sec. 8.3  Periodic updating.

    (a) Criteria. Each book of the Code shall be updated at least once 
each calendar year. If no change in its contents has occurred during the 
year, a simple notation to that effect may serve as the supplement for 
that year. More frequent updating of any unit of the Code may be made 
whenever the Director of the Federal Register determines that the 
content of the unit has been substantially superseded or otherwise 
determines that such action would be consistent with the intent and 
purpose of the Administrative Committee as stated in Sec. 8.1.

period under a staggered publication system to be determined by the 
Director of the Federal Register.
    (c) Cutoff dates. Each updated title of the Code will reflect each 
amendment to that title published as a codified regulation in the 
Federal Register on or before the ``As of'' date. Thus, each title 
updated as of July 1 each year will reflect all amendatory documents 
appearing in the daily Federal Register on or before July 1.

chapter shall be assigned to the regular schedule. Unless the issuing 
agency makes special arrangements otherwise, or the Office determines 
that the document requires a deferred schedule (see 1 CFR 17.7), receipt

received, processed and assigned a publication date. Emergency filing 
for public inspection is considered a special arrangement under

Sec. 18.13  Withdrawal or correction of filed documents.

    (a) A document that has been filed for public inspection with the 
Office of the Federal Register but not yet published, may be withdrawn 
from publication or corrected by the submitting agency. Withdrawals or

require agency withdrawal of the document from publication.
    (b) Both the originally filed document and the withdrawing or 
correcting letter shall remain on file. The original document and the 
withdrawing or correcting letter will be retained by the Office of the 
Federal Register after the public inspection period expires.

[54 FR 9681, Mar. 7, 1989]



Sec. 18.15  Correction of errors in printing.

    (a) Typographical or clerical errors made in the printing of the 
Federal Register shall be corrected by insertion of an appropriate 
notation or a reprinting in the Federal Register published without 
further agency documentation, if the Director of the Federal Register 
determines that--
    (1) The error would tend to confuse or mislead the reader; or
    (2) The error would affect text subject to codification.
    (b) The issuing agency shall review published documents and notify 
the Office of the Federal Register of printing errors found in published 
documents.

Sec. 18.16  Reinstatement of expired regulations.

    Agencies may reinstate regulations removed from the Code of Federal 
Regulations data base which have expired by their own terms only by 
republishing the regulations in full text in the Federal Register.

[54 FR 9681, Mar. 7, 1989]



Sec. 18.17  Effective dates and time periods.

    (a) Each document submitted for publication in the Federal Register 
that includes an effective date or time period should either set forth a 
date certain or a time period measured by a certain number of days after 
publication in the Federal Register. When a document sets forth a time 
period measured by a certain number of days after publication, Office of 
the Federal Register staff will compute the date to be inserted in the 
document as set forth in paragraph (b) of this section.
    (b) Dates certain will be computed by counting the day after the 
publication day as one, and by counting each succeeding day, including 
Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays. However, where the final count would 
fall on a Saturday, Sunday, or holiday, the date certain will be the 
next succeeding Federal business day.
    (c) In the event an effective date is dependent upon Congressional 
action, or an act of Congress or a dispositive Federal court decision 
establishes or

[[Page 25]]

changes the effective date of an agency's regulation, the issuing agency 
shall promptly publish a document in the Federal Register announcing the 
effective date.

Regulations part affected by the document; and
    (2) Place the list of index terms as the last item in the 
Supplementary Information portion of the preamble for the document.
    (b) Federal Register Thesaurus. To prepare its list of index terms, 
each agency shall use terms contained in the Federal Register Thesaurus 
of Indexing Terms. Agencies may include additional terms not contained 
in the Thesaurus as long as the appropriate Thesaurus terms are also 
used. Copies of the Federal Register Thesaurus of Indexing Terms are 
available from the Office of the Federal Register, National Archives and 
Records Administration, Washington, D.C. 20408.

[37 FR 23611, Nov. 4, 1972, as amended at 50 FR 12468, Mar. 28, 1985; 54 
FR 9682, Mar. 7, 1989]



Sec. 20.2  Preparation of agency statements.

    In accordance with schedules established under Sec. 20.7 each agency 
shall submit for publication in the Manual an official draft of the 
information required by Sec. 9.2 of this chapter and this part 20.



Sec. 20.3  Organization.

    (a) Information about lines of authority and organization may be 
reflected in a chart if the chart clearly delineates the agency's 
organizational structure. Charts must be prepared so as to be perfectly 
legible when reduced to the size of a Manual page. Charts that do not 
meet this requirement will not be included in the Manual.
    (b) Listings of heads of operating units should be arranged whenever 
possible to reflect relationships between units.
    (c) Narrative descriptions of organizational structure or hierarchy 
that duplicate information conveyed by charts or by lists of officials 
will not be published in the Manual.

Sec. 20.4  Description of program activities.

    (a) Descriptions should clearly state the public purposes that the 
agency serves, and the programs that carry out those purposes.

Sec. 20.6  Form, style, arrangement and apportionment of space.

    The form, style, and arrangement of agency statements and other

with information about their Government on a timely basis. Therefore, 
agencies must comply with the deadline dates established by the Director 
of the Federal Register for transmittal of statements and charts and for 
the verification of proofs. Failure to do so may result in publication 
of an outdated statement or the omission of important material, thus 
depriving members of the public of information they

Federal Register finds that the regulation meets any of the following 
exceptions:
    (1) The reference is required by court order, statute, Executive 
order or reorganization plan.

the exclusive legal authority to regulate in a subject matter area, but 
the referencing agency needs to apply those regulations in its own 
programs.
    (3) The reference is informational or improves clarity rather than 
being regulatory.
    (4) The reference is to test methods or consensus standards produced 
by a Federal agency that have replaced or preempted private or voluntary 
test methods or consensus standards in a subject matter area.
    (5) The reference is to the Department level from a subagency.

                                Placement



Sec. 21.43  Placing and amending authority citations.

    (a) The requirements for placing authority citations vary with the 
type of amendment the agency is making in a document. The agency shall 
set out the full text of the authority citation for each part affected 
by the document.
    (1) If a document sets out an entire CFR part, the agency shall 
place the complete authority citation directly after the table of 
contents and before the regulatory text.
    (2) If a document amends only certain sections within a CFR part, 
the agency shall present the complete authority citation to this part as 
the first item in the list of amendments.
    (i) If the authority for issuing an amendment is the same as the 
authority listed for the whole CFR part, the agency shall simply restate 
the authority.
    (ii) If the authority for issuing an amendment changes the authority 
citation for the whole CFR part, the agency shall revise the authority 
citation in its entirety. The agency may specify the particular 
authority under which certain sections are amended in the revised

Large shall refer to the section of the public law and the volume and 
page of the U.S. Statutes at Large to which they have been assigned. The 
page number shall refer to the page on which the section cited begins. 
For example:

    Authority: Sec. 5, Pub. L. 89-670, 80 Stat. 935 (49 U.S.C. 1654); 
sec. 313, Pub. L. 85-726, 72 Stat. 752 (49 U.S.C. 1354).

    Authority: 5 U.S.C. 552(a).

    Source: 47 FR 34108, Aug. 6, 1982, unless otherwise noted.



Sec. 51.1  Policy.

    (a) Section 552(a) of title 5, United States Code, provides, in 
part, that ``matter reasonably available to the class of persons 
affected thereby is deemed published in the Federal Register when 
incorporated by reference therein with the approval of the Director of 
the Federal Register.''
    (b) The Director will interpret and apply the language of section 
552(a) together with other requirements which govern publication in the 
Federal Register and the Code of Federal Regulations. Those requirements 
which govern publication include--
    (1) The Federal Register Act (44 U.S.C. 1501 et seq.)
    (2) The Administrative Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. 551 et seq.);
    (3) The regulations of the Administrative Committee of the Federal 
Register under the Federal Register Act (1 CFR Ch. I); and
    (4) The acts which require publication in the Federal Register (See 
CFR volume entitled ``CFR Index and Finding Aids.'')
    (c) The Director will assume in carrying out the responsibilities 
for incorporation by reference that incorporation by reference--
    (1) Is intended to benefit both the Federal Government and the 
members of the class affected; and
    (2) Is not intended to detract from the legal or practical 
attributes of the system established by the Federal Register Act, the 
Administrative Procedure Act, the regulations of the Administrative 
Committee of the Federal Register, and the acts which require 
publication in the Federal Register.
    (d) The Director will carry out the responsibilities by applying the 
standards of part 51 fairly and uniformly.
    (e) Publication in the Federal Register of a document containing an 
incorporation by reference does not of itself constitute an approval of 
the incorporation by reference by the Director.
    (f) Incorporation by reference of a publication is limited to the 
edition of the publication that is approved. Future amendments or 
revisions of the publication are not included.



Sec. 51.3  When will the Director approve a publication?

    (a) The Director will approve the incorporation by reference of a 
publication when the following requirements are met:
    (1) The publication is eligible for incorporation by reference (See 
Sec. 51.7).
    (2) The language of incorporation meets the requirements of this 
part (See Sec. 51.9).
    (3) The publication is on file with the Office of the Federal 
Register.
    (4) The Director has received a written request from the agency to 
approve the incorporation by reference of the publication.
    (b) The Director will notify the agency of the approval or 
disapproval of an incorporation by reference within 20 working days 
after the agency has met all the requirements for requesting approvals 
(See Sec. 51.5).



Sec. 51.5  How does an agency request approval?

    (a) Formal approval of a publication for incorporation by reference 
applies to a final rule document. For timely approval by the Director of 
the Federal Register, the agency must--
    (1) Make a written request for approval at least 20 working days 
before the agency intends to submit the final rule document for 
publication;
    (2) Send with the written request a copy of the final rule document 
that uses the proper language of incorporation; and
    (3) Ensure that a copy of the publication is on file at the Office 
of the Federal Register.

[[Page 38]]

    (b) Agencies may consult with the Office of the Federal Register at 
any time with respect to the requirements of this part.



Sec. 51.7  What publications are eligible?

    (a) A publication is eligible for incorporation by reference under 5 
U.S.C. 552(a) if it--
    (1) Conforms to the policy stated in Sec. 51.1;
    (2) Is published data, criteria, standards, specifications, 
techniques, illustrations, or similar material;
    (3) Substantially reduces the volume of material published in the 
Federal Register; and
    (4) Is reasonably available to and usable by the class of persons 
affected by the publication. In determining whether a publication is 
usable, the Director will consider--
    (i) The completeness and ease of handling of the publication; and
    (ii) Whether it is bound, numbered, and organized.
    (b) The Director will assume that a publication produced by the same 
agency that is seeking its approval is inappropriate for incorporation 
by reference. A publication produced by the agency may be approved, if, 
in the judgment of the Director, it meets the requirements of paragraph 
(a) and possesses other unique or highly unusual qualities. A 
publication may be approved if it cannot be printed using the Federal 
Register/Code of Federal Regulations printing system.
    (c) The following materials are not appropriate for incorporation by 
reference:
    (1) Material published previously in the Federal Register.
    (2) Material published in the United States Code.



Sec. 51.9  What is the proper language of incorporation?

    (a) The language incorporating a publication by reference shall be 
as precise and complete as possible and shall make it clear that the 
incorporation by reference is intended and completed by the final rule 
document in which it appears.
    (b) The language incorporating a publication by reference is precise 
and complete if it--
    (1) Uses the words ``incorporated by reference;''
    (2) States the title, date, edition, author, publisher, and 
identification number of the publication;
    (3) Informs the user that the incorporated publication is a 
requirement;
    (4) Makes an official showing that the publication is in fact 
available by stating where and how copies may be examined and readily 
obtained with maximum convenience to the user; and
    (5) Refers to 5 U.S.C. 552(a).
    (c) If the Director approves a publication for incorporation by 
reference, the agency must--
    (1) Include the following under the DATES caption of the preamble to 
the final rule document (See 1 CFR 18.12 Preamble requirements):

    The incorporation by reference of certain publications listed in the 
regulations is approved by the Director of the Federal Register as of --
----.

    (2) Includes the term ``incorporation by reference'' in the list of 
index terms (See 1 CFR 18.20  Identification of subjects in agency 
regulations).



Sec. 51.11  How does an agency change or remove an approved incorporation?

    (a) An agency that seeks approval for a change to a publication that 
is approved for incorporation by reference must--
    (1) Publish notice of the change in the Federal Register and amend 
the Code of Federal Regulations;
    (2) Ensure that a copy of the amendment or revision is on file at 
the Office of the Federal Register; and
    (3) Notify the Director of the Federal Register in writing that the 
change is being made.
    (b) If a regulation containing an incorporation by reference fails 
to become effective or is removed from the Code of Federal Regulations, 
the agency must notify the Director of the Federal Register in writing 
of that fact within 5 working days of the occurrence.

                   CHAPTER IV--MISCELLANEOUS AGENCIES




  --------------------------------------------------------------------


  Editorial Note: Federal agencies are required to publish regulations 
implementing the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 
552(a)), the Privacy Act of 1974 (Pub. L. 93-579, 5 U.S.C. 552a), the 
Government in the Sunshine Act (Pub. L. 94-409, 5 U.S.C. 552b), and 
section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended by section 119 
of the Rehabilitation, Comprehensive Services, and Developmental 
Disabilities Amendments of 1978 (29 U.S.C. 794). While most agencies 
have existing chapter assignments in the Code of Federal Regulations, a 
few agencies do not. Since certain of these agencies are unlikely to be 
issuing regulations other than those relating to the acts mentioned 
above, the Director of the Office of the Federal Register has grouped 
these miscellaneous agencies into this chapter as an efficient means of 
administering the CFR system.
Part                                                                Page

Sec. 425.1  Purpose and scope.

    This part sets forth the President's Commission on White House 
Fellowships procedures under the Privacy Act of 1974 as required by 5 
U.S.C. 552a(f). Information to applicants regarding the implementation 
of this Act is contained in the White House Fellowships Application 
Instructions.



Sec. 425.2  Procedures for notification of existence of records pertaining to individuals.

    (a) The system of records, as defined in the Privacy Act of 1974, 
maintained by the President's Commission on White House Fellowships is 
listed annually in the Federal Register as required by that Act. Any 
person who wishes to know whether a system of records contains a record 
pertaining to him or her may either appear in person at Room 1308, 1900 
E Street, NW., on work days between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. or 
may write to the President's Commission on White House Fellowships 
Administrative Officer, Washington, DC 20415 (Phone 202-382-4661). It is 
recommended that requests be made in writing.
    (b) Requests for notification of the existence of a record should 
state, if the requester is other than the individual to whom the record 
pertains, the relationship of the requester to that individual. (Note 
that requests will not be honored by the Commission pursuant to the 
Privacy Act unless made: (1) By the individual to whom the record 
pertains or (2) by such individual's legal guardian if the individual 
has been declared to be incompetent due to physical or mental incapacity 
or age by a court of competent jurisdiction.)
    (c) The Commission will acknowledge requests for the existence of 
records within 10 working days from the time it receives the request and 
will normally notify the requester of the existence or non-existence of 
records within 30 working days from receipt of request.
    (d) No special identity verification is required for individuals who 
wish to know whether a specific system of records pertains to them.

[40 FR 52416, Nov. 10, 1975; 40 FR 56651, Dec. 4, 1975, as amended at 40 
FR 59187, Dec. 22, 1975]



Sec. 425.3  Procedure for requests for access to or disclosure of records pertaining to individuals.

    (a) Any person may request review of records pertaining to him by 
appearing at Room 1308, 1900 E Street, NW., Washington, DC on work days 
between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. or by writing to the 
Commission on White House Fellowships Administrative Officer, 
Washington, DC 20415. (See paragraph (b) of this section for 
identification requirements.) The Commission will strive either to make 
the record available within 15 working days of the request or to inform 
the requester of the need for additional identification.
    (b) In the case of persons making requests by appearing at the 
Commission, reasonable identification such as employment identification 
cards, drivers licenses, or credit cards will normally be accepted as 
sufficient evidence of identity in the absence of any indications to the 
contrary.
    (c) Charges for copies of records will be at the rate of $0.10 per 
photocopy of each page. No charge will be made unless the charge as 
computed above would exceed $3 for each request or related series of 
requests. If a fee in excess of $25 would be required, the requester 
shall be notified and the fee must be tendered before the records will 
be copied. Remittances shall be in the form either of a personal check 
or bank draft drawn on a bank in the

[[Page 42]]

United States, or a money order. Remittances shall be made payable to 
the order of the Treasury of the United States and mailed or delivered 
to the Administrative Officer, President's Commission on White House 
Fellowships, 1900 E Street, NW., Washington, DC 20415.
    (d) Individuals will not be denied access to records pertaining to 
them.

[40 FR 52416, Nov. 10, 1975; 40 FR 56651, Dec. 4, 1975, as amended at 40 
FR 59187, Dec. 22, 1975]



Sec. 425.4  Correction of records.

    (a) An individual may request that a record or records pertaining to 
him or her be amended or corrected. Such requests shall be submitted in 
writing to the Administrative Officer at the Commission's business 
address.
    (b) The signature of the requester will be sufficient identification 
for requesting correction of records.
    (c) A request for amendment shall contain an exact description of 
the item or items sought to be amended and specific reasons for the 
requested amendment, as well as the individual's birthdate for purposes 
of verification of records.
    (d) Within 10 working days after receipt of a request to amend a 
record, the Administrative Officer shall transmit to the requester a 
written acknowledgement of receipt of request. No acknowledgement is 
required if the request can be reviewed and processed with notification 
to the individual of compliance or denial within the ten-day period. 
Requester will be notified within 30 days whether or not his or her 
request has been granted.
    (e) If the Administrative Officer determines that the requested 
amendment is appropriate to insure that the record is:
    (1) Relevant and necessary to accomplish the purposes for which the 
records were collected; and
    (2) As accurate, timely, and complete as are reasonably necessary to 
assure fairness to the requester, the Administrative Officer shall:
    (i) Change the record accordingly;
    (ii) Advise the requester that the change has been made, thirty days 
from receipt of written request;
    (iii) After an accounting of disclosures has been kept pursuant to 5 
U.S.C. 552a(c), advise all previous recipients of the record, who, the 
Commission believes, still retain a copy thereof, of the fact that the 
amendment was made and the substance of the amendment.
    (f) If, after review of the record, the Administrative Officer 
determines that the requested amendment is not in conformity with the 
requirements of the Act, he shall:
    (1) Advise the requester in writing within thirty days of written 
request of such determination together with specific reasons therefor; 
and
    (2) Inform the requester that further review of the request by the 
Director of the Commission is available if a written request therefor is 
made within 30 days after date of denial.
    (g) Within 30 working days of receipt of a written request for 
review pursuant to Sec. 425.4(f)(2) the Director shall make an 
independent review of the record, using the criteria of Sec. 425.4(e) 
(1) and (2).
    (1) If the Director determines that the record should be amended in 
accordance with the request, the Administrative Officer shall take the 
actions listed in Sec. 425.4(e)(2) (i), (ii), and (iii).
    (2) If the Director, after independent review, determines that the 
record should not be amended in accordance with the request, the 
Administrative Officer shall advise the requester:
    (i) Of the determination and the reasons therefor;
    (ii) Of his or her right to file with the Administrative Officer a 
concise statement of his or her reasons for disagreeing with the refusal 
to amend the record;
    (iii) That the record will be annotated to indicate to anyone 
subsequently having access to it that a statement of disagreement has 
been filed, and that the statement will be made available to anyone to 
whom the record is disclosed;
    (iv) That the Director and the Administrative Officer may, in their 
discretion, include a brief summary of their reasons for refusing to 
amend the record whenever such disclosure is made;

[[Page 43]]

    (v) That any prior recipients of this disputed record, who, the 
Commission believes, still retain a copy thereof, will be sent a copy of

maintained by the Commission contains a

[[Page 44]]

record pertaining to him or her shall submit a written request to that 
effect to the appropriate System Manager at the Commission. The System 
Manager shall, within 10 days of the receipt of such submission, inform 
the individual whether a system of records maintained by the Commission 
contains such a record.
    (b) An individual who desires access to any identified record shall 
file a request therefor, addressed to the System Manager indicating 
whether such individual intends to appear in person at the Commission's 
offices or whether he or she desires to receive a copy of any identified 
record through the mail.



Sec. 455.4  Times, places, and requirements for identification of individuals making requests.

    (a) An individual who, in accord with Sec. 455.3(b) of this part 
indicated that he or she would appear personally shall do so at the 
Commission's offices, 1325 G Street NW., Washington, DC, between the 
hours of 8:30 A.M. and 5:00 P.M., Monday through Friday (legal holidays 
excluded) and present a form of identification, such as a valid driver's

    (b) An individual who, in accord with Sec. 455.3(b) of this part 
indicated that he or she desired mail delivery of a copy of the record 
shall include in the request the date and location of birth of the

    (c) Where the above mentioned forms of identification are not 
feasible or appropriate, the Commission shall request a signed statement

obtaining access to records about another individual under false 
pretenses is punishable by a fine of up to $5,000.

procedures established by the Commission for the individual to request a 
review of that refusal.



Sec. 455.8  Appeal of an initial adverse agency determination on correction or amendment of the record.

    An individual who disagrees with the refusal of the System Manager 
to correct or to amend his or her record may submit a request for a 
review of such refusal to the Chairman of the Commission, 1325 G Street 
NW., Washington, DC 20576. The Chairman will, not later than thirty days 
from the date on which the individual requests such review, complete 
such review and make a final determination unless, for good cause shown, 
the Chairman extends such thirty day period. If, after his or her 
review, the Chairman also refuses to correct or to amend the record in 
accordance with the request, the individual may file with the Commission 
a concise statement setting forth the reasons for his or her 
disagreement with the refusal of the Commission and may seek judicial 
review

[[Page 45]]

of the Chairman's determination under 5 U.S.C. 552a(g)(1)(A).



Sec. 455.9  Disclosure of record to a person other than the individual to whom the record pertains.

a person of his or her own choosing accompany the individual when the 
record is disclosed.



Sec. 455.10  Fees.

    (a) The Commission will not charge an individual for the costs of 
making a search for a record or the costs of reviewing the record. When 
the Commission makes a copy of a record as a necessary part of the 
process of disclosing the record to an individual, the Commission will 
not charge the individual for the cost of making that copy.
    (b) If an individual requests the Commission to furnish him or her 
with a copy of the record (when a copy has not otherwise been made as a 
necessary part of the process of disclosing the record to the 
individual), the Commission will charge a fee of $0.25 per page (maximum 
per page dimension of 8\1/2\x13 inches) to the extent that the request 
exceeds $5.00 in cost to the Commission. Requests not exceeding $5.00 in 
cost to the Commission will be met without cost to the requester.



Sec. 455.11  Penalties.

    Title 18 U.S.C. 1001, Crimes and Criminal Procedures, makes it a 
criminal offense, subject to a maximum fine of $10,000 or imprisonment 
for not more than five years or both, to knowingly and willfully make or 
cause to be made any false or fraudulent statements or representations 
in any matter within the jurisdiction of any agency of the United 
States. Section 552a(i)(3) of the Privacy Act (5 U.S.C. 552a(i)(3)), 
makes it a misdemeanor, subject to a maximum fine of $5,000, to 
knowingly and willfully request or obtain any record concerning an 
individual under false pretenses. Section 552a(i) (1) and (2) of the 
Privacy Act (5 U.S.C. 552a(i) (1) and (2)) provide penalties for 
violations by agency employees of the Privacy Act or regulations 
established thereunder.

Sec.
456.1  Introduction.

456.3  Definitions.
456.4  Public access to information.

    Authority: 5 U.S.C. 552, as amended.

    Source: 47 FR 44229, Oct. 7, 1982, unless otherwise noted.



Sec. 456.1  Introduction.

    The following regulations implement the Freedom of Information Act, 
as amended, 5 U.S.C. 552 (hereinafter the ``Act''), and provide 
procedures by which information may be obtained from the National 
Capital Planning Commission (hereinafter the ``Commission''). Official 
records made available pursuant to the Act shall be furnished to members 
of the public as prescribed herein.



Sec. 456.2  Organization.

    The Commission is the central planning agency for the Federal 
Government in the National Capital. The Commission is composed of ex-
officio, the Secretary of the Interior, the Secretary of Defense, the 
Administrator of the General Services Administration, the Mayor of the 
District of Columbia, the Chairman of the Council of the District of 
Columbia, and the Chairman of the Committees on the District of Columbia 
of the Senate and the House of Representatives, or their alternates; and 
five citizens, three of whom are appointed by the President, and two of 
whom are appointed by the Mayor of the District of Columbia. The 
Commission is assisted by a staff headed by an Executive Director. The 
staff is organized functionally as follows:
    (a) Office of the Executive Director;
    (b) Legal Section;
    (c) Secretariat Section;
    (d) Management Services Section;

[[Page 46]]

    (e) Planning and Programming Division;
    (f) Review and Implementation Division;
    (g) Planning Services Division;
    (h) Carto/Graphics Division; and,
    (i) Public Affairs Division.

[47 FR 44229, Oct. 7, 1982, as amended at 52 FR 34373, Sept. 11, 1987]



Sec. 456.3  Definitions.

    For the purposes of this part, the following definitions shall 
apply:
    (a) Direct costs. This term means those expenditures which the 
Commission actually incurs in searching for, duplicating and reviewing 
records.
    (b) Search. This term includes all time spent looking for material 
that is responsive to a request, including page-by-page or line-by-line 
identification of material within documents.
    (c) Duplication. This term refers to the process of making a copy of 
a document necessary to respond to a Freedom of Information Act request.
    (d) Review. This term refers to the process of examining documents 
located in response to a request that is for commercial use to determine 
whether any portion of any document located is permitted to be withheld, 
and includes processing any documents for disclosure.
    (e) Commercial use request. This term refers to a request from or on 
behalf of one who seeks information for a use or purpose that furthers 
the commercial, trade or profit interests of the requester or the person 
on whose behalf the request is made.
    (f) Educational institution. This term refers to a preschool, a 
public or private elementary or secondary school, an institution of 
graduate higher education, an institution of undergraduate higher 
education, an institution of professional education, and an institution 
of vocational education, which operates a program or programs of 
scholarly research.
    (g) Non-commercial scientific institution. This term refers to a 
non-profit institution which is operated solely for the purpose of 
conducting scientific research the results of which are not intended to 
promote any particular product or industry.
    (h) Representative of the news media. This term refers to any person 
actively gathering news for an entity that is organized and operated to 
publish or broadcast news to the public. The term ``news'' means 
information that is about current events or that would be of current 
interest to the public. Examples of news media entities include 
television or radio stations broadcasting to the public at large, and 
publishers of periodicals (but only in those instances when they can 
qualify as disseminators of ``news'') who make their products available 
for purchase or subscription by the general public. In the case of 
``freelance'' journalists, they may be regarded as working for a news 
organization if they can demonstrate a solid basis for expecting 
publication through that organization, even though not actually employed 
by it. A request for records supporting the news dissemination function 
of the requester shall not be considered to be a request that is for a 
commercial use.

[52 FR 34373, Sept. 11, 1987]



Sec. 456.4  Public access to information.

    (a) General policy. It is the Commission's general policy to 
facilitate the broadest possible availability and dissemination of 
information to the public. The Commission's staff is available to assist 
the public in obtaining information formally by using the procedures 
herein or informally by discussions with the staff. The Commission's 
staff may, therefore, continue to furnish informally to the public 
information, which, prior to the amendments to the Act contained in 
Public Law 93-502, enacted November 21, 1974, was customarily furnished 
in the regular performance of their duties, provided the staff do so in 
a manner not inconsistent with these regulations. In addition, to the 
extent permitted by other laws, the Commission will make available 
records which it is authorized to withhold under the Act when it 
determines that such disclosure is in the public interest.
    (b) Established place of obtaining information. Information may be 
obtained only from the Commission's offices, which are located at 1325 G 
Street, NW., Washington, DC 20576. Its official hours are 8:00 a.m. to 
6:00 p.m., Monday

[[Page 47]]

through Friday, excluding legal holidays.
    (c) Information sources within the Commission. Requests for 
Commission publications, offered for sale or informal requests for 
general information on the Commission should be directed to the Public 
Affairs Officer. All formal requests for agency records pursuant to the 
Act must be directed to the Freedom of Information Officer.

Any request directed initially to the wrong information source will be 
correctly routed by the Commission's staff and the requesting party will 
be so notified. The ten-day time period within which the Commission is 
required to determine whether to comply with a request shall not begin 
to run until the request reaches, or with the exercise of due diligence 
should have reached, the appropriate information source.
    (d) Information routinely available. The following types of 
information shall be routinely available (subject to the fee schedule, 
infra) for public dissemination without recourse to the Commission's 
formal information request procedures unless such information falls 
within one of the exemptions to agency disclosure listed in 5 U.S.C. 
552(b):
    (1) Correspondence between the Commission and the public;
    (2) Executive Director's Recommendations;
    (3) Committee Reports;
    (4) Commission Memorandums of Actions; and
    (5) Maps.

Requests for information, other than maps, shall be directed to the 
Freedom of Information Officer; map requests shall be directed to the 
Public Affairs Officer.
    (e) Formal requests for information. All formal requests for 
information pursuant to the Act shall be made in writing to the Freedom 
of Information Officer. To expedite internal handling of such requests, 
the words ``Freedom of Information Request'' shall appear on the face of 
the envelope bearing such request. The request shall state that the 
request is made pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act; shall 
reasonably describe the information sought, including the date the 
Commission received or produced the requested information, if known; 
shall state, pursuant to the fee schedule set forth infra, the maximum 
fee the party making the request would be willing to pay for the 
duplication of the requested records without further approval; and 
shall, if possible, provide a telephone number at which the requesting 
party can be contacted to facilitate handling of the request.
    (f) Commission response to formal requests. The Freedom of 
Information Officer, upon request for information made in compliance 
with these regulations, shall determine within ten days (excepting 
Saturdays, Sundays, and legal holidays) after the receipt of any such 
request whether to comply with such request and shall immediately notify 
the person making such request of such determination and the reasons 
therefor and of the right of such person to appeal to the head of the 
agency any adverse determination. In unusual circumstances as specified 
infra, the ten-day time limit may be extended by written notice to the 
person making the request setting forth the reasons for such extension 
and the date on which a determination is expected to be dispatched. No 
such notice shall specify a date that would result in an extension for 
more than ten working days. As used in this paragraph, ``unusual 
circumstances'' means, but only to the extent reasonably necessary to 
the proper processing of the particular request:
    (1) The need to search for and collect the requested records from 
establishments that are separate from the Commission's offices;
    (2) The need to search for, collect, and appropriately examine a 
voluminous amount of separate and distinct records which are demanded in 
a single request; or
    (3) The need for consultation, which shall be conducted with all 
practicable speed, with another agency having a substantial interest in 
the determination of the request or among two or more components of the 
agency having substantial subject matter interest therein.
    (g) Determination to grant request. If the Freedom of Information 
Officer makes a determination to grant a request in whole or in part, 
the person making such request will be so notified

[[Page 48]]

in writing. The notice shall also include a description of the 
information to be made available, a statement of the time when and the 
place where such information may be inspected or alternatively, the 
procedure for duplication and delivery (by mail or other means) of the 
information to the requesting party and a statement of the total fees 
chargeable to the requesting person pursuant to the fee schedule infra.
    (h) Determination to deny request-appeal procedure. If the Freedom 
of Information Officer makes a determination to deny, in whole or in 
part, a request for information, he shall so notify the party making the 
request in writing. Any appeal of such determination shall be made in 
writing to the Chairman of the Commission and shall include a brief 
statement of the legal, factual, or other basis for the party's 
objection to the initial decision. The Chairman shall, within twenty 
days (excepting Saturdays, Sundays, and legal holidays) of the receipt 
of any such appeal determine whether to grant or deny the appeal and 
shall, immediately upon making his decision, give written notice of the 
decision to the party, including a brief statement of the reasons 
therefor.
    (i) Waiver. Whenever a waiver of any of the procedures set forth 
herein would further the purpose of the Act by causing the public 
disclosure of non-confidential information within the time period 
required by the Act, the Freedom of Information Officer may, in the 
context of individual requests for information, waive any of the 
procedural requirements herein.
    (j) Schedule of fees. (1) The Commission may charge the following 
fees for the production of information pursuant to the Act:
    (i) Publications offered for sale--as marked.
    (ii) Commission reports--$0.25/page.
    (iii) Committee reports--$0.25/page.
    (iv) Commission Memorandums of Actions--$0.25/page.
    (v) Transcripts of Commission meetings and Committee meetings--
$0.25/page.
    (vi) Other records--$0.25/page.
    (vii) Map publications--microfilm printout--$1.00/each; ozalid maps-
-$0.30/linear foot.
    (viii) Manual record research: $2.25 per quarter hour if conducted 
by a clerical employee; $5.00 per quarter hour if conducted by a 
professional or managerial employee. The Commission may charge for 
search costs, where applicable, even if there is ultimately no 
disclosure of records.
    (ix) Review charges: $5.00 per quarter hour. The Commission may 
charge for review costs, where applicable, even if there is ultimately 
no disclosure of records.
    (2) The Commission may charge the above-stated fees for the 
production of information pursuant to the Act, based upon the following 
requester classifications:
    (i) Commercial use requester. The Commission may charge requesters 
in this category for all the direct costs of searching for, reviewing 
for release, and duplicating the records sought. In determining whether 
a request is for commercial use, the Commission will look to the use to 
which a requester will put the documents requested. Where a requester 
does not explain the use or where the explanation is insufficient, the 
Commission may draw reasonable inferences from the requester's identity.
    (ii) Educational and non-commercial scientific institution 
requesters. The Commission shall provide documents to requesters in this 
category for the cost of reproduction alone, excluding charges for the 
first 100 pages. Requesters must show that the request is being made as 
authorized by or under the auspices of a qualifying institution and that 
the records sought are not for a commercial use, but are sought in 
furtherance of scholarly (if the request is from an educational 
institution) or non-commercial scientific research (if the request is 
from a non-commercial scientific institution).
    (iii) Representatives of the news media. The Commission shall 
provide documents to requesters in this category for the cost of 
reproduction alone, excluding charges for the first 100 pages.
    (iv) All other requesters. The Commission may charge requesters who 
do not fit into any of the categories above fees

[[Page 49]]

which recover the full reasonable direct costs of searching for and 
reproducing records that are responsive to the request, excluding the 
first 100 pages and first two hours of search time. Requests from record 
subjects for records about themselves filed in the Commission's system 
of records will continue to be treated under the fee provisions of the 
Privacy Act of 1974 which permit fees only for reproduction.
    (3) The Commission keeps on file a limited quantity of back copies 
of Executive Director's Recommendations, Committee Reports, and 
Commission Memorandums of Actions. The Commission will first attempt to 
fill specific requests for these documents from its supply of back 
copies and until the supply is exhausted, the Commission will provide 
the documents at no charge. Once the supply is exhausted, the requested 
documents will be provided in accord with the fee schedule.
    (4) The Commission may not charge fees to any requester if the cost 
of collecting the fee would be equal to or greater than the fee itself. 
The minimum fee for the production of information will be $2.00 (over 
and above the first free 100 pages and 2 hours search time, where 
applicable). The Commission's Freedom of Information Officer shall 
provide documents furnished under the Act without any charge or at a 
charge reduced below the fees established under Sec. 456.3(j)(1) if 
disclosure of the information is in the public interest because it is 
likely to contribute significantly to public understanding of the 
operations or activities of the government and it is not primarily in 
the commercial interest of the requester.
    (5) In deciding whether a fee waiver or reduction under 
Sec. 456.4(j)(4) is justified, the Commission will consider the 
following factors:
    (i) The subject of the request: Whether the subject of the requested 
records concerns ``the operations or activities of the Government'';
    (ii) The informative value of the information to be disclosed: 
Whether the disclosure is ``likely to contribute'' to an understanding 
of government operations or activities;
    (iii) The contribution to an understanding of the subject by the 
general public likely to result from disclosure: Whether disclosure of 
the requested information will contribute to ``public understanding''; 
and
    (iv) The significance of the contribution to public understanding: 
Whether the disclosure is likely to contribute ``significantly'' to 
public understanding of government perations or activities.
    (v) The existence and magnitude of a commercial interest: Whether 
the requester has a commercial interest that would be furthered by the 
requested disclosure; and, if so
    (vi) The primary interest in disclosure: Whether the magnitude of 
the identified commercial interest of the requester is sufficiently 
large, in comparison with the public interest disclosure, that 
disclosure is ``primarily in the commercial interest of the requester.''
    (k) Prior approval or advance deposit of fees. (1) Where the agency 
estimates that duplication, review or search charges are likely to 
exceed $25.00, it shall notify the requester of the estimated amount of 
fees, unless the requester has indicated in advance his or her 
willingness to pay fees as high as those estimated. Where the fees 
anticipated to result from a request are substantially greater than the 
amount estimated in the written request, the persons requesting the 
information shall be immediately notified of the estimated fees and his 
approval of such fees requested. Such person shall also be afforded the 
opportunity to revise his or her request to reduce the fees but satisfy 
his or her needs for information.
    (2) Where the Freedom of Information Officer determines that fees 
are likely to exceed $250.00, the Commission may require advance payment 
of the fee in whole or in part. Where a requester has previously failed 
to pay a fee charged in a timely manner or is presently in arrears, the 
Commission may require the requester to pay the full amount owed and to 
make an advance payment of the full amount of the estimated fees before 
the agency begins to process a new request or completes a pending 
request.

[[Page 50]]

    (3) The dispatch of any such request for an estimated fee approval 
or advance deposit shall suspend, until a reply is received by the 
Freedom of Information Officer, the period pursuant to 5 U.S.C., 552 and 
paragraph (f) supra within which the Freedom of Information Officer must 
respond to a written request for information.
    (4) A requester may not file multiple requests at the same time, 
each seeking portions of a document(s), solely in order to avoid payment 
of fees. When the Commission reasonably believes a requester(s) is 
attempting to break a request down into a series of requests for the 
purpose of evading the assessment of fees, the Commission may aggregate 
any such requests and charge accordingly.
    (l) Payment of fees. Fees charged a person for the production of 
information must be paid in full prior to release of the information. 
Payment of fees shall be made by a personal check, postal money order or 
bank draft on a bank in the United States, made payable to the order of 
the Treasurer of the United States.

Sec. 457.140  Employment.

    No qualified handicapped person shall, on the basis of handicap, be 
subjected to discrimination in employment under any program or activity 
conducted by the agency. The definitions, requirements, and procedures 
of section 501 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (29 U.S.C. 791), as 
established by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in 29 CFR 
part 1613, shall apply to employment in federally conducted programs or 
activities.



Secs. 457.141-457.148  [Reserved]



Sec. 457.149  Program accessibility: Discrimination prohibited.

    Except as otherwise provided in Sec. 457.150, no qualified 
handicapped person shall, because the agency's facilities are 
inaccessible to or unusable by handicapped persons, be denied the 
benefits of, be excluded from participation in, or otherwise be 
subjected to discrimination under any program or activity conducted by 
the agency.



Sec. 457.150  Program accessibility: Existing facilities.

    (a) General. The agency shall operate each program or activity so 
that the program or activity, when viewed in its entirety, is readily 
accessible to and usable by handicapped persons. This paragraph does 
not--
    (1) Necessarily require the agency to make each of its existing 
facilities accessible to and usable by handicapped persons;
    (2) In the case of historic preservation programs, require the 
agency to take any action that would result in a substantial impairment 
of significant historic features of an historic property; or
    (3) Require the agency to take any action that it can demonstrate 
would result in a fundamental alteration in the nature of a program or 
activity or in undue financial and administrative burdens. In those 
circumstances where agency personnel believe that the proposed action 
would fundamentally alter the program or activity or would result in 
undue financial and administrative burdens, the agency has the burden of 
proving that compliance with Sec. 457.150(a) would result in such 
alteration or burdens. The decision that compliance would result in such 
alteration or burdens must be made by the agency head or his or her 
designee after considering all agency resources available for use in the 
funding and operation of the conducted program or activity, and must be 
accompanied by

[[Page 54]]

a written statement of the reasons for reaching that conclusion. If an 
action would result in such an alteration or such burdens, the agency 
shall take any other action that would not result in such an alteration 
or such burdens but would nevertheless ensure that handicapped persons 
receive the benefits and services of the program or activity.
    (b) Methods--(1) General. The agency may comply with the 
requirements of this section through such means as redesign of 
equipment, reassignment of services to accessible buildings, assignment 
of aides to beneficiaries, home visits, delivery of services at 
alternate accessible sites, alteration of existing facilities and 
construction of new facilities, use of accessible rolling stock, or any 
other methods that result in making its programs or activities readily 
accessible to and usable by handicapped persons. The agency is not 
required to make structural changes in existing facilities where other 
methods are effective in achieving compliance with this section. The 
agency, in making alterations to existing buildings, shall meet 
accessibility requirements to the extent compelled by the Architectural 
Barriers Act of 1968, as amended (42 U.S.C. 4151-4157), and any 
regulations implementing it. In choosing among available methods for 
meeting the requirements of this section, the agency shall give priority 
to those methods that offer programs and activities to qualified 
handicapped persons in the most integrated setting appropriate.
    (2) Historic preservation programs. In meeting the requirements of 
Sec. 457.150(a) in historic preservation programs, the agency shall give 
priority to methods that provide physical access to handicapped persons. 
In cases where a physical alteration to an historic property is not 
required because of Sec. 457.150(a)(2) or (a)(3), alternative methods of 
achieving program accessibility include--
    (i) Using audio-visual materials and devices to depict those 
portions of an historic property that cannot otherwise be made 
accessible;
    (ii) Assigning persons to guide handicapped persons into or through 
portions of historic properties that cannot otherwise be made 
accessible; or
    (iii) Adopting other innovative methods.
    (c) Time period for compliance. The agency shall comply with the 
obligations established under this section by October 21, 1986, except 
that where structural changes in facilities are undertaken, such changes 
shall be made by August 22, 1989, but in any event as expeditiously as 
possible.
    (d) Transition plan. In the event that structural changes to 
facilities will be undertaken to achieve program accessibility, the 
agency shall develop, by February 23, 1987 a transition plan setting 
forth the steps necessary to complete such changes. The agency shall 
provide an opportunity to interested persons, including handicapped 
persons or organizations representing handicapped persons, to 
participate in the development of the transition plan by submitting 
comments (both oral and written). A copy of the transition plan shall be 
made available for public inspection. The plan shall, at a minimum--
    (1) Identify physical obstacles in the agency's facilities that 
limit the accessibility of its programs or activities to handicapped 
persons;
    (2) Describe in detail the methods that will be used to make the 
facilities accessible;
    (3) Specify the schedule for taking the steps necessary to achieve 
compliance with this section and, if the time period of the transition 
plan is longer than one year, identify steps that will be taken during 
each year of the transition period; and
    (4) Indicate the official responsible for implementation of the 
plan.



Sec. 457.151  Program accessibility: New construction and alterations.

    Each building or part of a building that is constructed or altered 
by, on behalf of, or for the use of the agency shall be designed, 
constructed, or altered so as to be readily accessible to and usable by 
handicapped persons. The definitions, requirements, and standards of the 
Architectural Barriers Act (42 U.S.C. 4151-4157), as established in 41 
CFR 101-19.600 to 101-19.607, apply to buildings covered by this 
section.

[[Page 55]]



Secs. 457.152-457.159  [Reserved]



Sec. 457.160  Communications.

    (a) The agency shall take appropriate steps to ensure effective 
communication with applicants, participants, personnel of other Federal 
entities, and members of the public.
    (1) The agency shall furnish appropriate auxiliary aids where 
necessary to afford a handicapped person an equal opportunity to 
participate in, and enjoy the benefits of, a program or activity 
conducted by the agency.
    (i) In determining what type of auxiliary aid is necessary, the 
agency shall give primary consideration to the requests of the 
handicapped person.
    (ii) The agency need not provide individually prescribed devices, 
readers for personal use or study, or other devices of a personal 
nature.
    (2) Where the agency communicates with applicants and beneficiaries 
by telephone, telecommunication devices for deaf person (TDD's) or 
equally effective telecommunication systems shall be used.
    (b) The agency shall ensure that interested persons, including 
persons with impaired vision or hearing, can obtain information as to 
the existence and location of accessible services, activities, and 
facilities.
    (c) The agency shall provide signage at a primary entrance to each 
of its inaccessible facilities, directing users to a location at which 
they can obtain information about accessible facilities. The 
international symbol for accessibility shall be used at each primary 
entrance of an accessible facility.
    (d) This section does not require the agency to take any action that 
it can demonstrate would result in a fundamental alteration in the 
nature of a program or activity or in undue financial and administrative 
burdens. In those circumstances where agency personnel believe that the 
proposed action would fundamentally alter the program or activity or 
would result in undue financial and administrative burdens, the agency 
has the burden of proving that compliance with Sec. 457.160 would result 
in such alteration or burdens. The decision that compliance would result 
in such alteration or burdens must be made by the agency head or his or 
her designee after considering all agency resources available for use in 
the funding and operation of the conducted program or activity, and must 
be accompanied by a written statement of the reasons for reaching that 
conclusion. If an action required to comply with this section would 
result in such an alteration or such burdens, the agency shall take any 
other action that would not result in such an alteration or such burdens 
but would nevertheless ensure that, to the maximum extent possible, 
handicapped persons receive the benefits and services of the program or 
activity.



Secs. 457.161-457.169  [Reserved]

building or facility that is subject to the Architectural Barriers Act 
of 1968, as amended

[[Page 56]]

(42 U.S.C. 4151-4157), or section 502 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973,

Secs. 500.112-500.129  [Reserved]



Sec. 500.130  General prohibitions against discrimination.

    (a) No qualified handicapped person shall, on the basis of handicap, 
be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or 
otherwise be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity 
conducted by the agency.
    (b)(1) The agency, in providing any aid, benefit, or service, may

level of achievement as that provided to others;
    (iv) Provide different or separate aid, benefits, or services to 
handicapped persons or to any class of handicapped persons than is

    (2) The agency may not deny a qualified handicapped person the 
opportunity to participate in programs or activities that are not 
separate or different, despite the existence of permissibly separate or

    (3) The agency may not, directly or through contractual or other 
arrangments, utilize criteria or methods of administration the purpose 
or effect of which would--
    (i) Subject qualified handicapped persons to discrimination on the

program in a manner that subjects qualified handicapped persons to 
discrimination on the basis of handicap, nor may the agency establish 
requirements for the programs or activities of licensees or certified 
entities that subject qualified handicapped persons to discrimination on 
the basis of handicap. However, the programs or activities of entities 
that are licensed or certified by the agency are not, themselves, 
covered by this part.
    (c) The exclusion of nonhandicapped persons from the benefits of a 
program limited by Federal statute or Executive order to handicapped 
persons or the exclusion of a specific class of handicapped persons from 
a program limited by Federal statute or Executive order to a different 
class of handicapped persons is not prohibited by this part.
    (d) The agency shall administer programs and activities in the most 
integrated setting appropriate to the needs of qualified handicapped 
persons.



Secs. 500.131-500.139  [Reserved]



Sec. 500.140  Employment.

    No qualified handicapped person shall, on the basis of handicap, be 
subjected to discrimination in employment under any program or activity 
conducted by the agency. The definitions, requirements, and procedures 
of section 501 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (29 U.S.C. 791), as 
established by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in 29 CFR 
part 1613, shall apply to employment in federally conducted programs or 
activities.



Secs. 500.141-500.148  [Reserved]



Sec. 500.149  Program accessibility: Discrimination prohibited.

    Except as otherwise provided in Sec. 500.150, no qualified 
handicapped person shall, because the agency's facilities are 
inaccessible to or unusable by handicapped persons, be denied the 
benefits of, be excluded from participation in, or otherwise be 
subjected to discrimination under any program or activity conducted by 
the agency.



Sec. 500.150  Program accessibility: Existing facilities.

    (a) General. The agency shall operate each program or activity so 
that the program or activity, when viewed in its entirety, is readily 
accessible to and usable by handicapped persons. This paragraph does 
not--

[[Page 60]]

    (1) Necessarily require the agency to make each of its existing 
facilities accessible to and usable by handicapped persons;
    (2) In the case of historic preservation programs, require the 
agency to take any action that would result in a substantial impairment 
of significant historic features of an historic property; or
    (3) Require the agency to take any action that it can demonstrate 
would result in a fundamental alteration in the nature of a program or 
activity or in undue financial and administrative burdens. In those 
circumstances where agency personnel believe that the proposed action 
would fundamentally alter the program or activity or would result in 
undue financial and administrative burdens, the agency has the burden of 
proving that compliance with Sec. 500.150(a) would result in such 
alteration or burdens. The decision that compliance would result in such 
alteration or burdens must be made by the agency head or his or her 
designee after considering all agency resources available for use in the 
funding and operation of the conducted program or activity, and must be 
accompanied by a written statement of the reasons for reaching that 
conclusion. If an action would result in such an alteration or such 
burdens, the agency shall take any other action that would not result in 
such an alteration or such burdens but would nevertheless ensure that 
handicapped persons receive the benefits and services of the program or 
activity.
    (b) Methods--(1) General. The agency may comply with the 
requirements of this section through such means as redesign of 
equipment, reassignment of services to accessible buildings, assignment 
of aides to beneficiaries, home visits, delivery of services at 
alternate accessible sites, alteration of existing facilities and 
construction of new facilities, use of accessible rolling stock, or any 
other methods that result in making its programs or activities readily 
accessible to and usable by handicapped persons. The agency is not 
required to make structural changes in existing facilities where other 
methods are effective in achieving compliance with this section. The 
agency, in making alterations to existing buildings, shall meet 
accessibility requirements to the extent compelled by the Architectural 
Barriers Act of 1968, as amended (42 U.S.C. 4151-4157), and any 
regulations implementing it. In choosing among available methods for 
meeting the requirements of this section, the agency shall give priority 
to those methods that offer programs and activities to qualified 
handicapped persons in the most integrated setting appropriate.
    (2) Historic preservation programs. In meeting the requirements of 
Sec. 500.150(a) in historic preservation programs, the agency shall give 
priority to methods that provide physical access to handicapped persons. 
In cases where a physical alteration to an historic property is not 
required because of Sec. 500.150(a)(2) or (a)(3), alternative methods of 
achieving program accessibility include--
    (i) Using audio-visual materials and devices to depict those 
portions of an historic property that cannot otherwise be made 
accessible;
    (ii) Assigning persons to guide handicapped persons into or through 
portions of historic properties that cannot otherwise be made 
accessible; or
    (iii) Adopting other innovative methods.
    (c) Time period for compliance. The agency shall comply with the 
obligations established under this section by October 21, 1986, except 
that where structural changes in facilities are undertaken, such changes 
shall be made by August 22, 1989, but in any event as expeditiously as 
possible.
    (d) Transition plan. In the event that structural changes to 
facilities will be undertaken to achieve program accessibility, the 
agency shall develop, by February 23, 1987 a transition plan setting 
forth the steps necessary to complete such changes. The agency shall 
provide an opportunity to interested persons, including handicapped 
persons or organizations representing handicapped persons, to 
participate in the development of the transition plan by submitting 
comments (both oral and written). A copy of the transition plan shall be 
made available for public inspection. The plan shall, at a minimum--

[[Page 61]]

    (1) Identify physical obstacles in the agency's facilities that 
limit the accessibility of its programs or activities to handicapped 
persons;
    (2) Describe in detail the methods that will be used to make the 
facilities accessible;
    (3) Specify the schedule for taking the steps necessary to achieve 
compliance with this section and, if the time period of the transition 
plan is longer than one year, identify steps that will be taken during 
each year of the transition period; and
    (4) Indicate the official responsible for implementation of the 
plan.



Sec. 500.151  Program accessibility: New construction and alterations.

    Each building or part of a building that is constructed or altered 
by, on behalf of, or for the use of the agency shall be designed, 
constructed, or altered so as to be readily accessible to and usable by 
handicapped persons. The definitions, requirements, and standards of the 
Architectural Barriers Act (42 U.S.C. 4151-4157), as established in 41 
CFR 101-19.600 to 101-19.607, apply to buildings covered by this 
section.



Secs. 500.152-500.159  [Reserved]



Sec. 500.160  Communications.

    (a) The agency shall take appropriate steps to ensure effective 
communication with applicants, participants, personnel of other Federal 
entities, and members of the public.
    (1) The agency shall furnish appropriate auxiliary aids where 
necessary to afford a handicapped person an equal opportunity to 
participate in, and enjoy the benefits of, a program or activity 
conducted by the agency.
    (i) In determining what type of auxiliary aid is necessary, the 
agency shall give primary consideration to the requests of the 
handicapped person.
    (ii) The agency need not provide individually prescribed devices, 
readers for personal use or study, or other devices of a personal 
nature.
    (2) Where the agency communicates with applicants and beneficiaries 
by telephone, telecommunication devices for deaf person (TDD's) or 
equally effective telecommunication systems shall be used.
    (b) The agency shall ensure that interested persons, including 
persons with impaired vision or hearing, can obtain information as to 
the existence and location of accessible services, activities, and 
facilities.
    (c) The agency shall provide signage at a primary entrance to each 
of its inaccessible facilities, directing users to a location at which 
they can obtain information about accessible facilities. The 
international symbol for accessibility shall be used at each primary 
entrance of an accessible facility.
    (d) This section does not require the agency to take any action that 
it can demonstrate would result in a fundamental alteration in the 
nature of a program or activity or in undue financial and adminstrative 
burdens. In those circumstances where agency personnel believe that the 
proposed action would fundamentally alter the program or activity or 
would result in undue financial and administrative burdens, the agency 
has the burden of proving that compliance with Sec. 500.160 would result 
in such alteration or burdens. The decision that compliance would result 
in such alteration or burdens must be made by the agency head or his or 
her designee after considering all agency resources available for use in 
the funding and operation of the conducted program or activity, and must 
be accompanied by a written statement of the reasons for reaching that 
conclusion. If an action required to comply with this section would 
result in such an alteration or such burdens, the agency shall take any 
other action that would not result in such an alteration or such burdens 
but would nevertheless ensure that, to the maximum extent possible, 
handicapped persons receive the benefits and services of the program or 
activity.



Secs. 500.161-500.169  [Reserved]



Sec. 500.170  Compliance procedures.

    (a) Except as provided in paragraph (b) of this section, this 
section applies to all allegations of discrimination on the basis of 
handicap in programs or activities conducted by the agency.
    (b) The agency shall process complaints alleging violations of 
section

[[Page 62]]

504 with respect to employment according to the procedures established 
by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in 29 CFR part 1613 
pursuant to section 501 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (29 U.S.C. 
791).
    (c) The Director shall be responsible for coordinating 
implementation of this section. Complaints may be sent to Director, 
National Commission for Employment Policy, Suite 300, 1522 K Street NW., 
Washington, DC 20005.
    (d) The agency shall accept and investigate all complete complaints 
for which it has jurisdiction. All complete complaints must be filed 
within 180 days of the alleged act of discrimination. The agency may 
extend this time period for good cause.
    (e) If the agency receives a complaint over which it does not have 
jurisdiction, it shall promptly notify the complainant and shall make 
reasonable efforts to refer the complaint to the appropriate government 
entity.
    (f) The agency shall notify the Architectural and Transportation 
Barriers Compliance Board upon receipt of any complaint alleging that a 
building or facility that is subject to the Architectural Barriers Act 
of 1968, as amended (42 U.S.C. 4151-4157), or section 502 of the 
Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended (29 U.S.C. 792), is not readily 
accessible to and usable by handicapped persons.
    (g) Within 180 days of the receipt of a complete complaint for which 
it has jurisdiction, the agency shall notify the complainant of the 
results of the investigation in a letter containing--
    (1) Findings of fact and conclusions of law;
    (2) A description of a remedy for each violation found; and
    (3) A notice of the right to appeal.
    (h) Appeals of the findings of fact and conclusions of law or 
remedies must be filed by the complainant within 90 days of receipt from 
the agency of the letter required by Sec. 500.170(g). The agency may 
extend this time for good cause.
    (i) Timely appeals shall be accepted and processed by the head of 
the agency.
    (j) The head of the agency shall notify the complainant of the 
results of the appeal within 60 days of the receipt of the request. If 
the head of the agency determines that additional information is needed 
from the complainant, he or she shall have 60 days from the date of 
receipt of the additional information to make his or her determination 
on the appeal.
    (k) The time limits cited in paragraphs (g) and (j) of this section 
may be extended with the permission of the Assistant Attorney General.
    (l) The agency may delegate its authority for conducting complaint 
investigations to other Federal agencies, except that the authority for 
making the final determination may not be delegated to another agency.
