The State’s reciprocity policy must meet the following conditions: 1. The appraiser licensing and certification program of the other State is in compliance with the provisions of FIRREA Title XI; and 2. The appraiser holds a valid certification from a State with requirements for certification or licensing that meet or exceed the certification and licensure standards established by the State where an individual seeks reciprocity. Statutory and Policy References: FIRREA Title XI § 1122(b), 12 U.S.C. 3351, as amended by the Dodd-Frank Act; FIRREA Title XI § 1122(b), 12 U.S.C. 3351; ASC Policy Statement 6. • Certification and Licensing Requirements for State licensed appraisers: The Dodd-Frank Act defines a ‘‘State licensed appraiser’’ as an individual who has satisfied the requirements for State licensing in a State with criteria for the licensing of a real estate appraiser currently that meet or exceed the minimum criteria issued by the AQB for the licensing of real estate appraisers. Therefore, if a State has a licensed category, the minimum qualification criteria issued by the AQB is mandatory. Statutory Reference: FIRREA Title XI § 1116(c), 12 U.S.C. 3345, as amended by the Dodd-Frank Act. See also AQB Real Property Appraiser Qualification Criteria. • Certification and Licensing Requirements—Minimum Qualification Requirements: The Dodd-Frank Act mandates that any minimum qualification requirements established by a State for individuals in the position of ‘‘Trainee Appraiser’’ and ‘‘Supervisory Appraiser’’ must meet or exceed the minimum qualification requirements of the AQB. Statutory Reference: FIRREA Title XI § 1116(e), 12 U.S.C. 3345, as amended by the Dodd-Frank Act. See also AQB Real Property Appraiser Qualification Criteria.

The revisions take effect on July 1, 2011, and do not necessarily require States to revise rules and/or regulations. States that will need to revise rules and/or regulations should advise the ASC as soon as possible. • The Dodd-Frank Act requires the ASC to encourage States to accept courses approved by the AQB Course Approval Program. While the ASC currently reviews States’ practices in this area as part of the Compliance Review process, the ASC will formally ask a State whether or not the State uses the AQB Course Approval Program as part of a Compliance Review conducted after July 1, 2011. Accordingly, the ASC will continue to encourage States to accept courses approved by the AQB Course Approval Program. Statutory References: FIRREA Title XI § 1122(h), 12 U.S.C. 3351, as amended by the Dodd-Frank Act. • The Dodd-Frank Act requires the ASC to monitor a State Program for the purposes of determining whether a State has policies, practices, procedures, funding, and staffing consistent with the purpose of FIRREA Title XI. The ASC’s longstanding practice is to monitor the adequacy of a State Program’s policies, practices and procedures. Recently, the ASC has been requesting funding and staffing data for State Programs as part of the Compliance Review process and will formally request the information from State Programs for Compliance Reviews conducted after July 1, 2011. Statutory References: FIRREA Title XI § 1118(a), 12 U.S.C. 3347, as amended by the Dodd-Frank Act. For further information, contact James R.

Proposed Project Formative Research to Develop Social Marketing Campaigns—Routine HIV Testing for Emergency Medicine Physicians, Prevention Is Care (PIC), and Partner Services—Extension— (0920–0775, expiration 4–30–2011) National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention (NCHHSTP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Background and Brief Description This project involves continuing a formative research study to support CDC’s efforts in further developing three social marketing campaigns targeting infectious disease specialists, primary care physicians, and emergency department physicians. The campaigns of focus are: Routine HIV Testing, Prevention Is Care (PIC) and Partner PO 00000 Frm 00033 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 16629 Services. The goal of the Routine HIV Testing Campaign is to increase HIV testing rates among individuals who receive care through the emergency department and the objective of the campaign is to make HIV testing a routine part of care provided by emergency medicine physicians. PIC entails encouraging primary care physicians (PCP) and Infectious Disease Specialists who deliver care to patients living with HIV to screen their HIV patients for HIV transmission behaviors and deliver brief messages on the importance of protecting themselves and others by reducing their risky behaviors. The long-term objective of the campaign is to establish PIC as the standard of care for persons living with HIV. The goal of the Partner Services component of the PIC social marketing campaign is to make HIV partner services a routine part of medical care. Partner services will greatly enhance the detection and early referral of individuals with HIV infection and will greatly reduce the number of new infections. The study entails conducting the remaining interviews to test creative materials with a sample of emergency medicine physicians for Routine HIV Testing and with PCP and Infectious Disease Specialists for PIC and Partner Services. Findings from this study will be used by CDC and its partners to inform current and future program activities. For Routine HIV Testing, we have conducted a total of 48 interviews and have 24 remaining interviews to conduct. We expect a total of 12 physicians to be screened annually for eligibility. Of the 12 physicians who are screened annually, we expect that 8 will participate in an interview annually. For PIC, we have conducted 18 interviews and have 144 remaining interviews to conduct. We expect a total of 72 physicians to be screened annually for eligibility. Of the 72 physicians who are screened, we expect that 48 will participate in an interview annually. For Partner Services, we have conducted 96 interviews and have 78 remaining interviews to conduct. We expect a total of 39 physicians to be screened annually for eligibility. Of the 39 physicians who are screened, we expect that 26 will participate in an interview annually. There are no costs to the respondents other than their time. The total estimated annual burden hours are 115. E:\FR\FM\24MRN1.SGM 24MRN1
