Mandatory Review (MDR) Requests Under Executive Order 13526
- MDR requests may only be submitted for classified documents (unclassified documents must be submitted under the FOIA or Special Review).
- NARA reviewers do not have the authority to declassify information.
- Copies of classified documents must be sent to equity agencies for review.
- Due to the complexities of coordinating review with other agencies, this will not be a fast process.
