Definition Edit

Referral of records is

[t]he act of identifying and sourcing information to the original information owner and requesting review of that information for declassification or other access measure. The process of referring records entails the identification of records containing classified information that originated with other agencies or the disclosure of which would affect the interests or activities of other agencies. Those records that could reasonably be expected to fall under one or more of the exemptions in section 3.3(b) of the Order are eligible for referral. The referral process also entails formal notification to those agencies, making the records available for review by those agencies, and recording final agency determinations.[1]
