United States Coast Guard Phase II Withdrawal Notice
The United States Coast Guard has notified the U.S. Government Publishing Office (GPO) that additional register issues should be withdrawn from the Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP) due to the presence of Personally Identifiable Information (PII). Superintendent of Documents Laurie Hall issued an official notification letter about this requirement for all Federal depository libraries on July 26, 2019. Please remove the specified volumes, in print or microfiche formats, from your depository collections immediately and destroy them. Depositories will receive a printed copy of the official notification letter by mail.
Every Federal depository library must complete a Withdrawal Action Form in order to comply with this recall. The form asks all FDLP libraries to indicate one of the following for each title in question:
- I have properly withdrawn and destroyed all or as many of the volume(s) as were found in my library’s collection.
- N/A – I do not have any of the volumes in my library’s collection.
The deadline to respond is September 6, 2019.
Please note: Depository libraries may have received additional issues of these registers from other sources, such as Library of Congress Gifts & Exchange, or by donation. GPO strongly recommends you review any issues of these titles not explicitly listed here for PII, and withdraw according to your institution’s policy for PII.
Additional information about recall procedures for Federal depository materials, destruction instructions, and a list of active and archived recall notices, can be found in the FDLP Guidance article, “Recall of Depository Material."
