Some of the Nixon Presidential Textual Materials have been withdrawn from the files that are available to the public in accordance with the Presidential Recordings and Materials Preservation Act of 1974 (PRMPA), its implementing regulations, and Executive Order 13526.

A Document Withdrawal Record (NA Form 1421) at the front of a file folder indicates that a document has been withdrawn from the file by the National Archives and Records Administration.

Restriction Code "B" Withdrawals  [See Also:  Mandatory Review Requests]

If the Document Withdrawal Record shows that the reason for withdrawal is restriction code "B" (national security or foreign government information), you may request a Mandatory Declassification Review of the item. Note that the Mandatory Declassification Review Request process applies only to restriction code "B" material.

Presidential Records Act Withdrawals  [See Also:  Freedom of Information Act Requests]

Declassification of materials from the NSC Institutional Files, which are subject to the Presidential Records Act, can be requested through the Freedom of Information Act.
