To Whom It May Concern:
This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:
A log of all FOIA requests made in fiscal year 2012.
I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.
In the event that fees cannot be waived, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.
Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business days, as the statute requires.

Dear Su Bae Jin ,
Our records indicate that you have submitted a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) in the past. We are writing to inform you that CPSC is about to launch e-FOIA Public Access Link (PAL), an online portal that will allow a FOIA requester to:
1. Submit a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request online;
2. Check the status of an existing request;
3. E-Mail the Government Information Specialist assigned to your request
4. Upload documentation, such as a Request Description, Fee Waiver Request or a Request for Expedited Processing;
5. Download the material deemed responsive to your request along with the correspondence for your request; and
6. Submit an appeal
We anticipate launching e-FOIA PAL in June 2017, so keep checking the FOIA page on the CPSC website ( http://www.cpsc.gov/en/NewsRoom/FOIA/Make-a-FOIA-Request) for the portal's arrival. (http://www.cpsc.gov/en/NewsRoom/FOIA/Make-a-FOIA-Request) Registration Required
You register to experience the benefits of e-FOIA PAL's capabilities. We ask that you use a valid must e-mail address as your User ID. Further information is available on the e-FOIA PAL site.

http://www.cpsc.gov/pal/palMain.aspx (http://www.cpsc.gov/pal/palMain.aspx) Certified Records
You can submit a FOIA request for certified records, check the status of the FOIA request and communicate with the Government Information Specialist assigned to the request via e-FOIA PAL.
Because certified records must bear a raised seal that is physically applied by
the Agency Secretariat, certified records will continue to be sent to FOIA requesters
via postal mail and not electronically. Additional Ways to Submit FOIA Requests and to Communicate with FOIA Staff
If you elect not to utilize e-FOIA PAL, you may continue to submit your request by postal mail, by fax to 301-504-0127 or by e-mail addressed to email@example.com . Please include your name, a telephone number, e-mail address and a postal mailing address in your inquiry or FOIA request. You may contact the FOIA Requester Service Center or a FOIA Public Liaison staff member for assistance. (mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org)
You can obtain more information on the FOIA Request Service Center and the Public Liaisons web page. (http://www.cpsc.gov/Newsroom/FOIA/FOIA-Requester-Service-Center-and-FOIA-Public-Liaisons--Check-Status-of-a-FOIA-Request/)
