(a) Officers and employees of the Department may, in response to requests, orally provide
information contained in records of the Department that are determined to be available
to the public. If the obtaining of such information requires a search of records, a written request
and the payment of the fee for a record search set forth in § 1.6 will be required.
(b) Information with respect to activities of the Department not a matter of record shall
not be disclosed if the information involves matters exempt from disclosure under
5 U.S.C. 552 or the regulations in this part, or if the disclosure of such information would give
the person requesting the information advantages not accorded to other citizens.
