Needs and Uses: NTIS issued a final rule establishing a program through which persons may become eligible to obtain access to Death Master File (DMF) information about an individual within three years of that individual’s death. The final rule was promulgated under Section 203 of the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2013, Public Law 113–67 (Act). The Act prohibits the Secretary of Commerce (Secretary) from disclosing DMF information during the three-year period following an individual’s death (Limited Access DMF), unless the person requesting the information has been certified to access the Limited Access DMF pursuant to certain criteria in a program that the Secretary establishes. The Secretary delegated the authority to carry out Section 203 to the Director of NTIS. On December 30, 2014, NTIS initially described a ‘‘Limited Access Death Master File Systems Safeguards Attestation Form’’ in the notice of proposed rulemaking (79 FR 78314 at 78321). To accommodate the requirements of the final rule, NTIS is using both the ACAB Systems Safeguards Attestation Form and the AG or IG Systems Safeguards Attestation Form.

The ACAB Systems Safeguards Attestation Form collects information based on an assessment by the ACAB conducted within three years prior to the date of the Person or Certified Person’s submission of a completed certification statement under Section 1110.101(a) of the final rule. This collection includes specific requirements of the final rule, which the ACAB must certify are satisfied, and the provision of specific information by the ACAB, such as the date of the assessment and the auditing standard(s) used for the assessment. Section 1110.501(a)(2) of the final rule provides that a state or local government office of AG or IG and a Person or Certified Person that is a department or PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 18609 agency of the same state or local government, respectively, are not considered to be owned by a common ‘‘parent’’ entity under Section 1110.501(a)(1)(ii) for the purpose of determining independence, and attestation by the AG or IG is possible. The AG or IG Systems Safeguards Attestation Form is for the use of a state or local government AG or IG to attest on behalf of a state or local government department or agency Person or Certified Person. The AG or IG Systems Safeguards Attestation Form requires the state or local government AG or IG to attest that a Person seeking certification or a Certified Person seeking renewal of certification has information security systems, facilities and procedures in place to protect the security of the Limited Access DMF, as required under Section 1110.102(a)(2) of the final rule. The AG or IG Systems Safeguards Attestation Form collects information based on an assessment by the state or local government AG or IG conducted within three years prior to the date of the Person or Certified Person’s submission of a completed certification statement under Section 1110.101(a) of the final rule.

    Needs and Uses: NTIS issued a final rule establishing a program 
through which persons may become eligible to obtain access to Death 
Master File (DMF) information about an individual within three years of 
that individual's death. The final rule was promulgated under Section 
203 of the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2013, Public Law 113-67 (Act). The 
Act prohibits the Secretary of Commerce (Secretary) from disclosing DMF 
information during the three-year period following an individual's 
death (Limited Access DMF), unless the person requesting the 
information has been certified to access the Limited Access DMF 
pursuant to certain criteria in a program that the Secretary 
establishes. The Secretary delegated the authority to carry out Section 
203 to the Director of NTIS.
    On December 30, 2014, NTIS initially described a ``Limited Access 
Death Master File Systems Safeguards Attestation Form'' in the notice 
of proposed rulemaking (79 FR 78314 at 78321). To accommodate the

Certified Person seeking renewal of certification has information 
security systems, facilities and procedures in place to protect the

Attestation Form collects information based on an assessment by the 
ACAB conducted within three years prior to the date of the Person or 
Certified Person's submission of a completed certification statement 
under Section 1110.101(a) of the final rule. This collection includes 
specific requirements of the final rule, which the ACAB must certify 
are satisfied, and the provision of specific information by the ACAB, 
such as the date of the assessment and the auditing standard(s) used 
for the assessment.
    Section 1110.501(a)(2) of the final rule provides that a state or 
local government office of AG or IG and a Person or Certified Person 
that is a department or agency of the same state or local government, 
respectively, are not considered to be owned by a common ``parent'' 
entity under Section 1110.501(a)(1)(ii) for the purpose of determining 
independence, and attestation by the AG or IG is possible. The AG or IG 
Systems Safeguards Attestation Form is for the use of a state or local 
government AG or IG to attest on behalf of a state or local government 
department or agency Person or Certified Person. The AG or IG Systems 
Safeguards Attestation Form requires the state or local government AG 
or IG to attest that a Person seeking certification or a Certified 
Person seeking renewal of certification has information security 
systems, facilities and procedures in place to protect the security of 
the Limited Access DMF, as required under Section 1110.102(a)(2) of the 
final rule. The AG or IG Systems Safeguards Attestation Form collects 
information based on an assessment by the state or local government AG 
or IG conducted within three years prior to the date of the Person or 
Certified Person's submission of a completed certification statement 
under Section 1110.101(a) of the final rule. This collection includes 
specific requirements of the final rule, which the state or local 
government AG or IG must certify are satisfied, and the provision of 
specific information by the state or local government AG or IG, such as 
the date of the assessment.
    Affected Public: Accredited Conformity Assessment Bodies and state 
or local government Auditors General or Inspectors General attesting 
that a Person seeking certification or a Certified Person seeking 
renewal of certification under the final rule for the ``Certification
