(a) Court-ordered disclosures. When a record pertaining to an individual is required to be disclosed by a court
order, the component shall make reasonable efforts to provide notice of this to the
individual. Notice shall be given within a reasonable time after the component's receipt of
the order—except that in a case in which the order is not a matter of public record,
the notice shall be given only after the order becomes public. This notice shall be mailed to the individual's last known address and shall contain
a copy of the order and a description of the information disclosed. Notice shall not be given if disclosure is made from a criminal law enforcement
system of records that has been exempted from the notice requirement.
(b) Emergency disclosures. Upon disclosing a record pertaining to an individual made under compelling circumstances
affecting health or safety, the component shall notify that individual of the disclosure. This notice shall be mailed to the individual's last known address and shall state
the nature of the information disclosed; the person, organization, or agency to which
it was disclosed; the date of disclosure; and the compelling circumstances justifying
