New legislation now requires federal agencies to tag and archive any records pertaining to the UFO phenomenon.
Greater transparency and improved record-keeping with regard to UAPs is set to come into force this year thanks to the previously passed 2024 defense policy bill which requires all agencies to organize and tag any records that happen to pertain to the phenomenon.
In a new memo sent out this week by Laurence Brewer - chief records officer for the US government - agencies have been ordered to "review, identify, and organize each UAP record in its custody for disclosure to the public and transmission to the National Archives."
To this end, a new central collection of UAP records is being set up to house all the data.
Agencies will have until the end of the current fiscal year to get their records organized.
The move comes thanks to (albeit watered down) legislation passed last year and aims to make data pertaining to the UFO phenomena more available to agencies and members of the public.
"For decades, many Americans have been fascinated by objects mysterious and unexplained and it's long past time they get some answers," Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said at the time.
"The American public has a right to learn about technologies of unknown origins, non-human intelligence, and unexplainable phenomena."
Exactly how and when the public will be granted access to this information, however, remains unclear.
