The Records Management Program (RMP) activities include:

The Information Disclosure Section is responsible for ensuring the Board's compliance with the FOIA while administering policies, programs, and procedures that safeguard the integrity, security, and sensitivity of Board records. The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. § 552, provides that any person has a right of access to federal agency records, unless the records (or any portion of the records) are protected from disclosure by one of FOIA's nine exemptions or by one of three special law enforcement record exclusions. The Board maintains public and nonpublic records. Public records are available in the Board's conventional reading room and electronic reading room. A FOIA request is not required to obtain these materials. The submission of a FOIA request is required to obtain nonpublic records.

In addition to its FOIA responsibilities, the Information Disclosure Section is also responsible for processing requests for certificates and posting regulatory proposals and comment letters to the Board's public FOIA webpage. The Information Disclosure Section maintains the Board's public FOIA webpage and Proposals for Comment webpage.
