SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

    The Training Records system contains information about individuals
who participate in or assist with CFTC training. Collection of this
information is necessary to facilitate, track, and report on

II. The Privacy Act

    Under the Privacy Act of 1974, 5 U.S.C. 552a, a ``system of

establishes the means by which government agencies must collect,
maintain, and use personally identifiable information associated with
an individual in a government system of records.
    Each government agency is required to publish a notice in the
Federal Register of a system of records in which the agency identifies
and describes each system of records it maintains, the reasons why the
agency uses the personally identifying information therein, the routine
uses for which the agency will disclose such information outside the
agency, and how individuals may exercise their rights under the Privacy
Act to determine if the system contains information about them.
