System of Records Notices (SORNs)

The Privacy Act of 1974 requires all federal agencies to publish a formal notice to the public in the Federal Register that identifies the purposes for which personally identifiable information (PII) is collected; how the PII is used by the Agency; how the Agency shares PII externally; and, most importantly, how individuals can access and correct the information a federal government agency maintains on the subject individual. These notices are called System of Records Notices (SORNs).

FRTIB is required to publish a SORN anytime it creates, substantially modifies, or retires a system of records.
