DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY

 
Name Change From the Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration 
Services to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services

AGENCY: Department of Homeland Security.

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This Notice informs the public that the Department of Homeland 
Security (DHS) has changed the name of the Bureau of Citizenship and 
Immigration Services to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services 
(USCIS).

EFFECTIVE DATES: This Notice is effective October 13, 2004.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Richard A. Sloan, Director, Regulatory 
Management Division, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, 
Department of Homeland Security, 111 Massachusetts Avenue, NW., 
Washington, DC 20529, Telephone (202) 616-7600.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) 
was established on Janurary 24, 2003, pursuant to the Homeland Security 
Act of 2002, Public Law 107-296 (HSA). DHS is the result of the 
reorganization of 22 Federal agencies, including the former Immigration 
and Naturalization Services (INS) from the Department of Justice (DOJ). 
Pursuant to section 451 of the HSA, the functions of the former INS 
were transferred from DOJ to DHS effective March 1, 2003, establishing 
among other DHS immigration components the Bureau of Citizenship and 
Immigration Services (BCIS). See 6 U.S.C. 451.
    DHS has decided to change the name of this component from BCIS to 
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). Pursuant to section 
872 (a)(2) of the HSA (6 U.S.C. 452(a)(2)), DHS is required to provide 
notice of the name change to appropriate congresional committees 60 
days before the change will be effective. The Appropriate committees 
were notified of the name change on or before June 23, 2004. Therefore, 
pursuant to section 872 of the HSA, the change from BCIS to USCIS 
became official effective August 23, 2004.
    This Notice informs the public that all official documents and 
future regulatory actions involving BCIS now will identify USCIS as the 
applicable DHS component, and all references to BCIS in existing 
documents and actions henceforth shall be construed as references to 
USCIS.

    Dated: October 5, 2004.
Tom Ridge,
Secretary of Homeland Security.
