Dear Mr. Pletten:
This is in response to your March 3, 1986 Freedom of Information Act request for a copy of any qualification requirements that require smoking, tolerating, or avoiding smoking as a condition of Federal employment, and any forms asking for this information from applicants or employees.
The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) is unaware of any qualification standards in use that require the ability to smoke, tolerate smoking, or avoid smoking. We are also unaware of the existence of any forms that ask for this information.
The Paperwork Reduction Act of 1980 [44 USC § 3501 et seq.] requires agencies of the executive branch to submit to OMB for review all collections of information imposed on 10 or more members of the public. Information collections approved or currently under review by OMB are available for public viewing in our docket library. There are some 6,450 forms in the library. There is no compilation of these information collections that address your request.
However, you are free to do a manual search of the information collection in the docket library. The docket library is located in Room 3201 of the New Executive Office Building, 17th and Pennsylvania Avenue, NW., Washington, D.C.; it is open from 9 am to 5:30 pm Monday through Friday. It is advisable to call at 202-395-6880 before you come so arrangements can be made for you to be cleared into the building.
I hope this information will be of help to you.
