Although the Homeland Security Act of 2002 (HSA) created what is known as the "Bureau" of Citizenship and Immigration Services (with the corresponding acronym "BCIS"), that division had some time ago dropped the word "Bureau" from its name, and rebranded itself as "U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services," with the corresponding acronym "USCIS." The HSA requires DHS to notify "appropriate congressional committees" of such name changes 60 days before the change becomes official. In an October 13, 2004 Federal Register notice, DHS notified the public that such notice was completed, and that its name and acronym are now "officially" U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services and USCIS.
