The Privacy Act of 1974: An Assessment. APPENDIX 4 TO The Report of The Privacy Protection Study Commission.. Other Provisions of the Law


The current provisions relating to archival records [5 U.S.C. 552a(I)], Reports on New Systems [5 U.S.C. 552a(o)], Mailing Lists [5 U.S.C. 552a(n)], and the Annual Report of the President [5 U.S.C. 552a(p)] are retained in the revision without significant change. [(n), (o), (p), (r)] The Commission believes, however, that the evaluation of probable or potential effect on "privacy and other personal or property rights" implicitly called for in the new system report requirement should be understood to mean an evaluation of impact on the three dimensions of intrusiveness, fairness, and legitimate expectation of confidentiality that are explicated in some detail in its final report to the President and the Congress.
