(b) When a USDA employee originates information and has a reasonable doubt about the need to classify the information, the information shall be safeguarded as if it were “Confidential” pending a determination about its classification by an original classification authority. When there is reasonable doubt about the appropriate classification level, the information shall be safeguarded at the higher level pending determination of its classification level. In either case, the information shall be released to the Department Security Officer who shall transmit the document to the Agency which has appropriate subject matter interest and original classification authority. The Order provides that the Agency having original classification authority shall decide within thirty (30) days whether to classify the information.

The Director shall determine the Agency having primary subject matter interest and forward the information, with appropriate recommendations, to that Agency for a classification determination.
8 10.5 Derivative classification.
(a) Responsibility. (1) Derivative application of classification markings is the responsibility of those USDA employees who incorporate, paraphrase, restate, or generate in new form, information which is already classified or those who apply markings in accordance with guidance from an authorized classifier. If an employee who applies derivative classification markings believes that the paraphrasing, restating or summarizing of classified information has removed the basis for classification, the employee must consult an appropriate official of the originating Agency who has the authority to upgrade, downgrade or declassify the information for a determination. A sample marking of a derivatively classified document appears in the appendix section of these regulations.
(2) Employees who apply derivative classification markings shall:
(i) Respect original classification decisions;
(ii) Carry forward to any newly created documents the assigned dates or events for declassification or review and any additional authorized markings.
(b) Marking derivatively classified documents. (1) Paper copies of derivatively classified documents shall be marked at the time of preparation as follows:
(i) Overall marking. The highest level of classification of information in a document shall be marked in such a way as to distinguish it clearly from the informational text. These mark
ings shall appear at the top and bottom of the outside of the front cover (if any), on the title page (if any), on the first page, and on the outside of the back cover (if any).
(ii) Page marking. Each interior page of a derivatively classified document shall be marked at the top and bottom according to the highest classification of the content of the page, including the designation "unclassified" when applicable, or with the highest overall classification of the document.
(iii) Portion marking. Each portion of a document, including subjects and titles, shall be marked by placing a parenthetical designation immediately preceding or following the text to which it applies. The symbols “(TS)" for Top Secret “(S)” for Secret, “(C)” for Confidential and “(U)" for Unclassified shall be used for this purpose. If the application of parenthetical designations is not practicable, the document shall contain a statement sufficient to identify the information that is classified and the level of such classification, as well as the information that is not classified. If all portions of a document are classified at the same level, this fact may be indicated by a statement to that effect.
(iv) Classification authority. The authority for classification shall be shown on the bottom of the first page of the derivatively classified document as follows: Derivatively Classified by (name of USDA
employee) USDA Agency Derived from (Insert identity of original
classification) Declassify on (Date listed on source docu
ment) If a document is classified on the basis of more than one source document or classification guide, the authority for classification shall be shown on the “derived from” line as “classified from multiple sources.” In these cases, the derivative classifier shall maintain the identification of each source with the file or record copy of the derivatively classified document. A document derivatively classified on the bases of a source document that is marked “clas. sified by multiple sources" shall cite
ings. The same classification shall be applied to the derivatively classified document.
(6) Change in classification marking. When the original classifier of source document notifies the appropriate USDA employee, as the holder of a copy of the source document, that a change in the duration of the classified information and/or a change in the level of classification is being made, the USDA employee shall line through the old markings to conform to the change. The authority for the action and date shall be conspicuously marked on the bottom of the first page of the document to indicate the change.
(d) Prohibitive markings or classification. Markings such as “For Official Use Only" or "Limited Official Use” shall not be used to identify national security information. No other term or phrase shall be used in conjunction with these designations, such as “Secret Sensitive" or "Agency Confidential” to identify national security information.
the source document on its "derived from" line.
(v) Declassification and downgrad. ing instructions. Dates or events for automatic downgrading or declassification, or the notation "originating Agency review required” to indicate that the document is not to be downgraded or declassified automatically, shall be carried forward from the source document, or as directed by a classification guide, and shown on the “declassify on" or an additional line "downgrade to".
(c) Special markings. (1) Transmittal documents. A transmittal document shall indicate on its face the highest classification of any information transmitted by it. It shall also include the following instruction:
For an unclassified transmittal document, the marking “unclassified when classified enclosure is removed" shall be used on the bottom of the last page.
(2) Information marked "Restricted Data" or "Formerly Restricted Data" in accordance with regulations issued under the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended, shall be handled, protected, classified, downgraded, and declassified in conformity with the provisions of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended.
(3) Derivatively classified documents that contain information from source document relating to intelligence sources or methods shall include the marking “warning notice-intelligence sources or methods involved” on the bottom of the first and last pages unless otherwise prescribed by the Director of Central Intelligence.
(4) Foreign government information. Documents that contain foreign government information shall include the marking “foreign government information" on the bottom of the first and last pages of the documents. If the fact that information is foreign government information must be concealed, the marking shall not be used and the derivatively classified document shall be marked as if it were wholly of U.S. origin.
(5) Information classified under predecessor Orders on source documents shall be considered as classified at that level of classification despite the omission of other required mark
8 10.6 Declassification.
(a) Information shall remain classified for as long as is required by national security considerations. When it can be determined, a specific date or event for declassification shall be set by the original classification authority at the time the information is originally classified.
(b) Information classified under predecessor Orders that is not subject to automatic declassification or that is marked for review before declassification shall remain classified until reviewed for declassification.
(c) Automatic declassification determinations under predecessor Orders shall remain valid unless the classification is extended by an authorized official of the originating Agency. Authority to extend the classification of information subject to automatic declassification under predecessor Orders is limited to those officials who have original classification authority at the level of the information to remain classified or by the Director of the Information Security Oversight Office.
