Interim executive agreements of one form or another are currently in force with a number of countries. Most apply to investigations arising from illegal narcotics trafficking. Some require the Attorney General to certify to the attorney general of the other nation that specified records located in the other country are required in connection with a pending investigation of criminal conduct that is covered by the agreement. Contact the Office of International Affairs for information about the use and content of such requests.
