$ 1.110 Purpose and scope.

It sets forth the basic responsibilities of each agency of USDA with regard to USDA's compliance with the requirements of the Act, and offers guidance to members of the public who wish to exercise any of the rights established by the Act with regard to records maintained by an agency of USDA.
$ 1.111 Definitions.

8 1.112 Procedures for requests pertaining
to individual records in record
system. (a) Any individual who wishes to be notified if a system of records maintained by an agency contains any record pertaining to him, or to request access to such records, shall submit a written request in accordance with the instructions set forth in the system notice for that system of records. This request shall include:
(1) The name of the individual making the request;
(2) The name of the system of records (as set forth in the system notice to which the request relates);
(3) Any other information specified in the system notice; and
(4) When the request is one for access, a statement as to whether the requester desires to make a personal inspection of the records, or be supplied with copies by mail.
(b) Any individual whose request under paragraph (a) of this section is denied may appeal that denial to the head of the agency which maintains. the system of records to which the request relates.
(c) In the event that an appeal under paragraph (b) of this section is
§ 1.113 Times, places, and requirements
for identification of individuals
making requests. (a) If an individual submitting a request for access under $ 1.112 has asked that an agency authorize a personal inspection of records pertaining to him, and the agency has granted that request, the requester shall present himself at the time and place specified in the agency's response or arrange another, mutually convenient, time with the appropriate agency official.
(b) Prior to inspection of the records, the requester shall present sufficient identification (e.g., driver's license, employee identification card, social security card, credit cards) to establish that he is the individual to whom the records pertain. If the requester is unable to provide such identification, he shall complete and sign in the presence of an agency official a signed statement asserting his identity and stipulating that he understands that knowingly or willfully seeking or obtaining access to records about another individual under false pretenses is a misdemeanor punishable by fine up to $5,000. No identification shall be required, however, when the records are ones whose disclosure is required by 5 U.S.C. 552.
(c) Any individual who has requested access to records about him via personal inspection, and who wishes to have another person or persons accompany him during this inspection shall submit a written statement authorizing disclosure of the record in their presence.
(d) Any individual having made a personal inspection of records pertaining to him may request the agency to provide him copies of those records or any portion thereof. Each agency shall grant such requests but may charge fees in accordance with $ 1.120.
(e) If an individual submitting a request for access under $ 1.112 wishes to be supplied with copies of the records by mail, he shall include with his request sufficient data for the
agency to verify his identity. If the sensitivity of the records warrant it, however, the agency to which the request is directed may require the requester to submit a signed, notarized statement indicating that he is the individual to whom the records pertain and stipulating he understands that knowingly or willfully seeking or obtaining access to records about another individual under false pretenses is a misdemeanor punishable by fine up to $5,000. No identification shall be required, however, when the records are ones whose disclosure is required by 5 U.S.C. 552. If the agency to which this request is directed determines to grant the requested access, it may charge fees in accordance with $ 1.120 before making the necessary copies. $ 1.114 Disclosure of requested informa
tion to individuals. (a) Any agency which receives a request or appeal under $ 1.112 should acknowledge the request or appeal within 10 days of its receipt (excluding Saturdays, Sundays, and legal public holidays). Wherever practicable, the acknowledgment should indicate whether or not access will be granted and, if so, when and where. When access is to be granted, the agency should provide the access within 30 days of receipt of the request or appeal (excluding Saturdays, Sundays and legal public holidays) unless, for good cause shown, it is unable to do so. If the agency is unable to meet this deadline, it shall inform the requester of this fact, the reasons for its inability to do so, and an estimate of the date on which access will be granted.
(b) Nothing in 5 U.S.C. 552a or this subpart shall be interpreted to require that an individual making a request under $ 1.112 be granted access to the physical record itself. The form in which a record is kept (e.g., on magnetic tape), or the content of the record (e.g., a record indexed under the name of the requester may contain records which are not about the requester) may require that the record be edited translated in some manner. Neither of these procedures may be utilized, however, to withhold information in a record about the requester.
(c) No agency shall deny any request under $ 1.112 for information concerning the existence of records about the requester in any system of records it maintains, or deny any request for access to records about the requester in any system of records it maintains, unless that system is exempted from the requirements of 5 U.S.C. 552a(d) in $ 1.123.
(d) If any agency receives a request pursuant to § 1.112(a) for access to records in a system of records it maintains which is so exempted, the system manager shall determine if the exemption is to be asserted. If he determines to deny the request, he shall inform the requester of that determination, the reason for the determination, and the title and address of the agency head to whom the denial can be appealed.
(e) If the head of an agency determines that an appeal pursuant to § 1.112(b) is to be denied, he shall inform the requester of that determination, the reason therefor, and his right under 5 U.S.C. 552a(g) to seek judicial review of the denial in federal district court.
(f) Nothing in 5 U.S.C. 552a or this subpart shall allow an individual access to any information compiled in reasonable anticipation of a civil action or proceeding.
8 1.115 Special procedures: medical
records. In the event an agency receives a request pursuant to § 1.112 for access to medical records (including psychological records) whose disclosure it determines would be harmful to the individual to whom they relate, it may refuse to disclose the records directly to the requester but shall transmit them to a doctor designated by that individual.
8 1.116 Request for correction or amend
ment to record. (a) Any individual who wishes to request correction or amendment of any record pertaining to him contained in a system of records maintained by an agency shall submit that request in writing in accordance with the instructions set forth in the system notice for
