Protected Critical Infrastructure Information Regulations

Final Rule: Procedures for Handling Protected Critical Infrastructure Information

The Department of Homeland Security has filed “Procedures for Handling Protected Critical Infrastructure Information" with the Federal Register for publication.  This final rule, which became effective upon publication in the Federal Register September 1, 2006, amends Homeland Security regulations establishing uniform procedures to implement the Critical Infrastructure Information Act of 2002.

These procedures govern the receipt, validation, handling, storage, marking and use of critical infrastructure information voluntarily submitted to the Department of Homeland Security. This rule applies to all federal agencies, all U.S. government contractors, and state, local and other governmental entities that handle, use, store, or have access to critical infrastructure information that enjoys protection under the Critical Infrastructure Information Act of 2002.
