The FTC is requesting that any comment filed in paper form be sent by courier or overnight service, if possible, because U.S. postal mail in the Washington area and at the Commission is subject to delay due to heightened security precautions. The Federal Trade Commission Act (‘‘FTC Act’’) and other laws the Commission administers permit the collection of public comments to consider and use in this proceeding as appropriate. The Commission will consider all timely and responsive public comments that it receives, whether filed in paper or electronic form. Comments received will be available to the public on the FTC website, to the extent practicable, at (http://www.ftc.gov/os/ publiccomments.shtm). As a matter of discretion, the Commission makes every effort to remove home contact information for individuals from the public comments it receives before placing those comments on the FTC website. More information, including routine uses permitted by the Privacy Act, may be found in the FTC’s privacy policy, at (http://www.ftc.gov/ftc/ privacy.shtm). FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Laura Schneider, Bureau of Consumer Protection, 600 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW, Washington, D.C. 20580, (202) 3262604. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Pursuant to section 6(f) of the Federal Trade Commission Act, 38 Stat. 721, 15 U.S.C. 46(f), and § 2.34 the Commission Rules of Practice, 16 CFR 2.34, notice is hereby given that the above-captioned consent agreement containing a consent order to cease and desist, having been filed with and accepted, subject to final approval, by the Commission, has been placed on the public record for a period of thirty (30) days. The following Analysis to Aid Public Comment describes the terms of the consent agreement, and the allegations in the complaint. An electronic copy of the full text of the consent agreement package can be obtained from the FTC Home Page (for July 20, 2009), on the World Wide Web, at (http:// www.ftc.gov/opa/2009/07/evs.shtm). A paper copy can be obtained from the FTC Public Reference Room, Room 130H, 600 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW, Washington, D.C. 20580, either in person or by calling (202) 326-2222. Public comments are invited, and may be filed with the Commission in either paper or electronic form. All comments should be filed as prescribed in the VerDate Nov<24>2008 19:02 Jul 24, 2009 Jkt 217001 section above, and must be received on or before the date specified in the DATES section. ADDRESSES Analysis of Agreement Containing Consent Order to Aid Public Comment The Federal Trade Commission (‘‘FTC’’ or ‘‘Commission’’) has accepted, subject to final approval, an agreement containing a consent order from Enhanced Vision Systems, Inc., a corporation (‘‘respondent’’). The proposed consent order has been placed on the public record for thirty (30) days for reception of comments by interested persons. Comments received during this period will become part of the public record. After thirty (30) days, the Commission will again review the agreement and the comments received and will decide whether it should withdraw from the agreement or make final the agreement’s proposed order. This matter involves respondent’s marketing and sale of vision enhancement products purportedly ‘‘Made in the U.S.A.’’According to the FTC complaint, respondent represented that certain of its vision enhancement products were made in the United States, when, in fact, a significant portion of their components are of foreign origin. See Enforcement Policy Statement on U.S. Origin Claims (1997) (‘‘A product that is all or virtually all made in the United States will ordinarily be one in which all significant parts and processing that go into the product are of U.S. origin.’’). Thus, the complaint alleges that respondent’s claim is false or misleading in violation of Section 5(a) of the FTC Act. The proposed consent order contains a provision designed to prevent respondent from engaging in similar acts and practices in the future. Part I of the proposed order prohibits respondent from representing the extent to which its vision-related products are made in the United States unless the representation is true and not misleading. Parts II through V require respondent to keep copies of advertisements and materials relied upon in disseminating any representation covered by the order; to provide copies of the order to certain of its personnel, agents, and representatives having responsibilities with respect to the subject matter of the order; to notify the Commission of changes in corporate structure that might affect compliance obligations under the order; and to file compliance reports with the Commission and respond to other requests from FTC staff. Part VI provides that the order will PO 00000 Frm 00041 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 37037 terminate after twenty (20) years under certain circumstances. The purpose of this analysis is to facilitate public comment on the proposed order. It is not intended to constitute an official interpretation of the agreement and proposed order or to modify in any way their terms. By direction of the Commission. Donald S. Clark Secretary [FR Doc.

In developing procedures for collecting the necessary information from potential child victims of trafficking, their case managers, attorneys, or other representatives to allow HHS to grant interim eligibility, HHS devised a form. HHS has determined that the use of a standard form to collect information is the best way to ensure requestors are notified of their option to request assistance for child victims of trafficking and to make prompt and consistent determinations about the child’s eligibility for assistance.

Finally, the form takes into consideration the need to compile information regarding a child’s circumstances and experiences in a non- directive, child-friendly way, and assists the potential requestor in assessing whether the child may have been subjected to trafficking in persons. The information provided through the completion of a Request for Assistance for Child Victims of Human Trafficking form will enable HHS to make prompt determinations regarding the eligibility of an alien child for interim assistance, inform HHS’ determination regarding the child’s eligibility for assistance as a victim of a severe form of trafficking in persons, facilitate the required consultation process, and enable HHS to assess and address potential child protection issues.

Background and Brief Description Cancer is the second leading cause of death in the United States, second only to heart disease. In 2005, the most recent year for which complete information is available, more than 500,000 people died of cancer and more than 1.34 million were diagnosed with cancer. In addition to the personal impact of cancer, the financial burden is also substantial. The direct treatment costs of cancer in 2008 have been estimated at $93.2 billion, with additional indirect costs of $134.9 billion in lost productivity due to illness and premature death. In 1992, Congress passed the Cancer Registries Amendment Act which established the National Program of Cancer Registries (NPCR). The NPCR provides support for central cancer registries (CCR) that collect, manage and analyze data about cancer cases. The NPCR-funded CCRs, which are located in states, the District of Columbia, and U.S. territories, report information to CDC annually through the National Program of Cancer Registries Cancer Surveillance System (NPCR CSS) (OMB No. 0920–0469, exp. 1/31/2010). CDC plans to request OMB approval to continue collecting this information for three years. The NPCR CSS allows CDC to collect, aggregate, evaluate and disseminate cancer incidence data at the national level. The NPCR CSS is the primary source of information for United States E:\FR\FM\27JYN1.SGM 27JYN1
