After considering comments to its draft FOIA regulations, the United States Trade Representative issued final regulations that appear in today's Federal Register.  The amendments reflect "a comprehensive update" of the agency's regulations and describe "in plain language how to make a FOIA request to USTR and how the FOIA Office processes requests for records."  USTR's revised FOIA regulations are effective immediately.
