    ACTION: Notice of new system of records.

    SUMMARY: This notice adds a new system of records to the Commission's

    systems of records under the Privacy Act of 1974, Public Law 93-579, 5

    U.S.C. 552a. The visitor information system contains information

    provided by visitors to the agency. The visitor provides

    identification, in the form of a driver's license, passport, or

    Federal/Military ID. The company affiliation of the visitor will also

    be requested. This information is scanned and linked to the name and

    office phone number of the CFTC employee sponsoring the visit, along

    with information on the location of the visit, time of entry, purpose

    of the visit, and the number of the badge issued to the visitor. The

    purpose of the information collection is to enhance the security of

    CFTC employees and property by verifying the identity of visitors, and

    to track the location of the visitor so that, in the event of an

    emergency, the agency can account for all the people in its space.

    Records in the visitor system will be retained for three months and

    then purged.

    DATES: Comments on the establishment of the new system of records must

    be received no later than May 31, 2007. The new system of records will

    be effective June 11, 2007 unless the Commission receives comments

    which would result in a contrary determination.

    Secretary, Commodity Futures Trading Commission, Three Lafayette
