(b) Using contact information to inform airmen of meetings and seminars conducted by the FAA regarding aviation safety.
(c) Disclosing information to the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) in connection with its investigation responsibilities.
(d) Providing information about airmen to Federal, State, local and tribal law enforcement agencies when engaged in an official investigation in which an airman is involved.
(e) Providing information about enforcement actions, or orders issued thereunder, to Federal agencies, the aviation industry, and the public upon request.
(f) Making records of delinquent civil penalties owed to the FAA available to the U.S. Department of the Treasury and the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) for collection pursu-
ant to 31 U.S.C. 3711(g).
(g) Making records of effective orders against the certificates of airmen available to their employers if the airmen use the affected certificates to perform job responsibilities for
those employers.
(h) Making airmen records available to users of FAA’s Safety Performance Analysis System (SPAS), including the Department of Defense Commercial Airlift Division’s Air Car-
rier Analysis Support System (ACAS) for its use in identifying safety hazards and risk areas, targeting inspection efforts for certificate holders of greatest risk, and monitoring the
effectiveness of targeted oversight actions.
(i) Making records of an individual’s positive drug test result, alcohol test result of 0.04 or greater breath alcohol concentration, or refusal to submit to testing required under a
DOT-required testing program, available to third parties, including current and prospective employers of such individuals. Such records also contain the names and titles of indi-
viduals who, in their commercial capacity, administer the drug and alcohol testing programs of aviation entities.
(j) Providing information about airmen through the Civil Aviation Registry’s Comprehensive Airmen Information System to the Department of Health and Human Services, Office
of Child Support Enforcement, and the Federal Parent Locator Service that locates noncustodial parents who owe child support. Records in this system are used to identify airmen
to the child support agencies nationwide in enforcing child support obligations, establishing paternity, establishing and modifying support orders and location of obligors. Records
listed within the section
on Categories of Records are retrieved using Connect: Direct through the Social Security Administration’s secure environment.
(k) Making personally identifiable information about airmen available to other Federal agencies for the purpose of verifying the accuracy and completeness of medical information
provided to FAA in connection with applications for airmen medical certification.
(l) Making records of past airman medical certification history data available to Aviation Medical Examiners (AMEs) on a routine basis so that AMEs may render the best medical
certification decision.

this system of records may be disclosed to the United States Coast Guard (Coast Guard) and to the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) if information from this system
was shared with either agency when that agency was a component of the Department of Transportation (DOT) before its transfer to DHS and such disclosure is necessary to
accomplish a DOT, TSA or Coast Guard function related to this system of records.
