Announcement of Public Briefings on Using the New Permanent 
Foreign Labor Certification (PERM) System

AGENCY: Employment and Training Administration, Labor.

ACTION: Notice.

SUMMARY: The regulation to implement the re-engineered permanent 
foreign labor certification program (PERM) was published in the Federal 
Register on December 27, 2004, with an effective date of March 28, 
2005. The Employment and Training Administration (ETA) of the 
Department of Labor (Department or DOL) is issuing this notice to 
announce DOL will offer four public briefings to educate the public on 
using the new permanent foreign labor certification system. The four 
briefings will take place in early 2005 in Chicago, Atlanta, Costa Mesa 
(California) and Washington, DC. During the briefings, the Department 
will also provide an update on backlog reduction efforts. This notice 
provides the public with locations, dates, and registration information 
regarding these four briefings.

    As of December 13, 2004, The Department opened two new National 
Processing Centers in Atlanta and Chicago. The National Processing 
Centers will handle permanent labor certification cases to be filed

the Department will offer an open house to allow the public to tour the 
two new facilities. Attendees of the briefings are not required to 
formally register for the open house, but instead are invited to visit 
the National Processing Centers during the hours listed below.
