Type of Request: Intent to seek approval to renew an information collection for three years. Abstract A. Proposed Project All individuals who anticipate deploying to Antarctica and to certain regions of the Arctic under the auspices of the United States Antarctic Program are required to take and pass a rigorous physical examination prior to deploying. The physical examination includes a medical history, medical examination, a dental examination and for those persons planning to winter over in Antarctica a psychological examination is also required. The requirement for this determination of physical status is found in 42 U.S.C. 1870 (Authority) and 62 FR 31522, June 10, 1997 (Source), unless otherwise noted. This part sets forth the procedures for medical screening to determine whether candidates for participation in the United States PO 00000 Frm 00057 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 29001 Antarctic [[Page 216]] Program (USAP) are physically qualified and psychologically adapted for assignment or travel to Antarctica. Medical screening examinations are necessary to determine the presence of any physical or psychological conditions that would threaten the health or safety of the candidate or other USAP participants or that could not be effectively treated by the limited medical care capabilities in Antarctica. (b) Presidential Memorandum No. 6646 (February 5, 1982) (available from the National Science Foundation, Office of Polar Programs, Room 755, 4201 Wilson Blvd., Arlington, VA 22230) sets forth the National Science Foundation’s overall management responsibilities for the entire United States national program in Antarctica. B. Use of the Information 1. Form NSF–1422/1462/1452, National Science Foundation—Polar Physical Examination (Antarctica/ Arctic/Official Visitors) Medical History, will be used by the individual to record the individual’s family and personal medical histories. It is a fivepage form that includes the individual’s and the individual’s emergency pointof-contact’s name, address, and telephone numbers. It contains the individual’s email address, employment affiliation and dates and locations of current and previous polar deployments. It also includes a signed certification of the accuracy of the information and understandings of refusal to provide the information or providing false information. The agency’s contractors’ reviewing physicians and medical staff complete the sections of the form that indicate when the documents were received and whether or not the person qualified for polar deployment, in which season the person is qualified to deploy and where disqualified the reasons. 2. Form NSF–1423/1463/1453, Polar Physical Examination—Antarctica/ Arctic/Official Visitors, will be used by the individual’s physician to document specific medical examination results and the overall status of the individual’s health. It is a two-page form which also provides for the signatures of both the patient and the examining physician, as well as contact information about the examining physician. Finally, it contains the name, address and telephone number of the agency’s contractor that collects and retains the information. 3.
