Department of the Navy is updating the Navy Privacy Act Program by adding the (k)(2) exemption to accurately describe the basis for exempting the records in the system of records notice N05800-2, Professional Responsibility Files. This direct final rule makes non-substantive changes to the Department of the Navy's Program rules. This will improve the efficiency and effectiveness of DoD's program by ensuring the integrity of the security and investigative material compiled for law enforcement purposes by the Department of the Navy and the Department of Defense. This rule is being published as a direct final rule as the Department of Defense does not expect to receive any adverse comments, and so a proposed rule is unnecessary.

This rule is final. Its effective date is November 23, 2012.
