ACTION: Notice of amendment of Privacy Act system of records.
SUMMARY: In accordance with the requirements of the Privacy Act of 1974, as amended, the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) is amending the system of records currently listed under ``COMMERCE/PAT-TM-18 USPTO Identification and Security Access Control Systems.''

We invite the public to comment on the amended system noted in this publication.
DATES: Written comments must be received no later than November 24, 2008. The proposed amendments will become effective on November 24, 2008, unless the USPTO receives comments that would result in a contrary determination.
