Today, the National Technical Information Service (NTIS) issued a final rule establishing a program through which persons may obtain access to the Death Master File (DMF). Among other things, the ruling updates eligibility requirements and certifications. Qualified persons will be able to access an individual’s information within three years of that individual’s death.
According to official documents: This final rule supersedes and replaces the interim final rule that NTIS promulgated following passage of Section 203 of the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2013 to provide immediate and ongoing access to persons who qualified for temporary certification. The program established under this final rule contains some changes from the proposed rule published by NTIS.
Section: Rules and Regulations
Action: Final rule.
Dates: This final rule is effective November 28, 2016
