Proposed Project Annual Submission of the Ingredients Added to, and the Quantity of Nicotine Contained in, Smokeless Tobacco Manufactured, Imported, or Packaged in the U.S. (OMB No. 0920–0338, exp. 4/ 30/2011)—Extension—National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Background and Brief Description The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Office on Smoking and Health (OSH) has the primary responsibility for the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) smoking and health program. HHS’s overall goal is to reduce death and disability resulting from the use of smokeless tobacco products and other forms of tobacco use through programs of information, education and research. Since 1994, as required by the Comprehensive Smokeless Tobacco Education Act of 1986 (CSTHEA, 15 U.S.C. 4401 et seq., Pub. L. 99–252), CDC has collected information about the ingredients used in smokeless tobacco products and their nicotine content. Respondents are commercial smokeless tobacco product manufacturers, packagers, or importers (or their representatives), who are required by the CSTHEA to submit ingredient reports to HHS on an annual basis. Respondents are not required to submit specific forms; however, they are required to meet reporting guidelines and to submit the ingredient report by chemical name and Chemical Abstract Service (CAS) Registration Number, consistent with accepted reporting practices for other companies currently required to report ingredients added to other consumer products. Typically, respondents submit a summary report to CDC with the ingredient information for multiple products, or a statement that there are no changes to their previously submitted ingredient report. Ingredient reports for new products are due at the time of first importation. Thereafter, ingredient reports are due annually on March 31. Information is submitted to OSH by mailing a written report on the respondent’s letterhead, by CD, three-inch floppy disk, or thumb drive. Electronic mail submissions are not accepted. Upon receipt and verification of the annual ingredient and nicotine data reports, OSH issues a Certificate of Compliance to the respondent. OSH also uses the information to report to the Congress (as deemed appropriate) discussing the health effects of these ingredients. In this Extension request, there no changes to the estimated number of respondents, the estimated burden per response, or the information collection methods. There are no costs to respondents other than their time. The total estimated annualized burden hours are 18,843.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under the PRA (44 U.S.C. 3501–3520), Federal Agencies must obtain approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for each collection of information they conduct or sponsor. ‘‘Collection of information’’ is defined in 44 U.S.C. 3502(3) and 5 CFR 1320.3(c) and includes Agency requests or requirements that members of the public submit reports, keep records, or provide information to a third party. Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the PRA (44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)) requires Federal Agencies to provide a 60-day notice in the Federal Register concerning each proposed collection of information, including each proposed extension of an existing collection of information, before submitting the collection to OMB for approval. To comply with this requirement, FDA is publishing notice of the proposed collection of information set forth in this document. With respect to the following collection of information, FDA invites comments on these topics: (1) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of FDA’s functions, including whether PO 00000 Frm 00068 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 2395 the information will have practical utility; (2) the accuracy of FDA’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (3) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques, when appropriate, and other forms of information technology. Customer/Partner Service Surveys (OMB Control Number 0910–0360)—Extension Under section 903 of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (21 U.S.C. 393), FDA is authorized to conduct research and public information programs about regulated products and responsibilities of the agency. Executive Order 12862, entitled, ‘‘Setting Customer Service Standard,’’ directs Federal agencies that ‘‘provide significant services directly to the public’’ to ‘‘survey customers to determine the kind and quality of services they want and their level of satisfaction with existing services.’’ FDA is seeking OMB clearance to conduct a series of surveys to implement Executive Order 12862. Participation in the surveys is voluntary. This request covers customer/partner service surveys of regulated entities, such as food processors; cosmetic drug, biologic and medical device manufacturers; consumers; and health professionals. The request also covers ‘‘partner’’ (State and local governments) customer service surveys. FDA will use the information from these surveys to identify strengths and weaknesses in service to customers/ partners and to make improvements. The surveys will measure timeliness, appropriateness and accuracy of information, courtesy and problem resolution in the context of individual programs. FDA estimates conducting 15 customer/partner service surveys per year, each requiring an average of 15 minutes for review and completion. We estimate respondents to these surveys to be between 100 and 10,000 customers. Some of these surveys will be repeats of earlier surveys for purposes of monitoring customer/partner service and developing long-term data. FDA estimates the burden of this collection of information as follows: E:\FR\FM\13JAN1.SGM 13JAN1
