Confidentiality of Public Comments

DOE's practice is to make comments, including names and addresses of respondents, available for public review. Individual respondents may request that DOE withhold their address from the record, which we will honor to the extent allowable by law. If you wish us to withhold your name and/or address, you must state this prominently at the beginning of your comment. However, DOE will not consider anonymous comments. Except for proprietary information, DOE will make all submissions from organizations or businesses, and from individuals identifying themselves as representatives or officials of organizations or businesses, available to the public in their entirety.
