Leonard, J. W. (n.d.). Topics Relating to Automatic Declassification under Executive Order 12958. Retrieved from

Excerpt: Dear Mr. David: I am writing in response to your recent inquiry concerning several topics relating to automatic declassification under Executive Order 12958, Classified National Security Information, as amended (the Order), By way of background, ten executive branch agencies originally received Presidential approval for file series exemptions under Executive Order 12958. These file series exemptions are still in effect. A list of those agencies was published in ISOO's 1998 Annual Report to the President copy of which is enclosed. At present, no new file series exemptions have been approved following last year's amendment to E.O. 12958, although a single request is currently pending. With respect to notifications made to me regarding delays to the onset of automatic declassification as set forth in section 3. (e) of the Order, several agencies have indicated their intent to delay for an additional 5 years the automatic declassification of information contained in special media such as microforms, motion pictures, and audiotapes. Additionally, so as to facilitate the full implementation of the automatic declassification concept on December 31, 2006, I have concurred as a matter of course to specific agency requests to delay for up to 3 years the automatic declassification of classified records that have been referred to that agency. Finally, no agency has informed me of their intent to delay the automatic declassification of records that have only recently been discovered.
