Non-exempt records available to public. Except for records and information exempted from disclosure by 5 U.S.C. 553(b) or published in the Federal Register under 5 U.S.C. 552(a)(1), all records of the Commission or in its custody are available to any person who requests them in, accordance with 2201.6.
Examination of records in cases appealed to courts. A final order of the Commission may be appealed to a United States Court of Appeals. When this occurs, the Commission may send part or all of the official case file to the court and may retain other parts of the file. Thus, a document in a case may not be available from the Commission but only from the court of appeals. In such a case, the Freedom of Information Act Officer may inform the requester that the request for a particular document should be directed to the court.
Time for examination and copying. Records may be examined and copied, under conditions prescribed by the Freedom of Information Act Officer, between the hours of 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. on any business day so long as the examination or copying does not interfere with the hearing or disposition of a pending case.
