This consultation is complete. However, in the interest of soliciting broad public input, OBA is submitting this action for public comment and will finalize the changes after reviewing any comments. DATES: The public is encouraged to submit written comments on this minor action. Comments may be submitted to the OBA in paper or electronic form at the OBA mailing, fax, and e-mail addresses shown below under the heading FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT. The NIH will consider all comments submitted by September 9, 2011. All written comments received in response to this notice will be available for public inspection at the NIH OBA office, 6705 Rockledge Drive, Suite 750, Bethesda, MD 20817–7985, weekdays between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: If you have questions, or require additional information about these changes, please contact OBA by e-mail at oba@od.nih.gov, telephone (301–496– 9838), or mail to the Office of Biotechnology Activities, National Institutes of Health, 6705 Rockledge Drive, Suite 750, Bethesda, Maryland 20892–7985. Background: Appendix B of the NIH Guidelines is a list of biological agents that are classified into risk groups on the basis of their ability to cause disease in healthy adults and the availability of preventive or therapeutic interventions. Agents listed in Appendix B have been classified into one of four risk groups: • RG1 agents are those that are not associated with disease in healthy adult humans; • RG2 agents are those that are associated with human disease which is rarely serious and for which preventive or therapeutic interventions are often available; • RG3 agents are associated with serious or lethal human disease for which preventive or therapeutic interventions may be available; and • RG4 agents are those that are likely to cause serious or lethal human disease for which preventive or therapeutic interventions are not usually available. For the most part, the agents listed in Appendix B are wild-type, fully pathogenic strains. However, laboratory research that is subject to the NIH Guidelines frequently employs strains that are attenuated. An attenuated strain is not necessarily avirulent but generally is less pathogenic than the wild-type strain, and therefore the biosafety risk posed by research with an attenuated strain is not necessarily equivalent to VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:15 Jul 22, 2011 Jkt 223001 that posed by the wild-type strain. As the RG of an agent is the starting point for the risk assessment to determine containment for research with that agent, OBA is amending Appendix B to provide more specific guidance for these attenuated strains. In addition to designating RGs for several attenuated strains, four additional changes will be made to Appendix B. The classification of attenuated strains of Vesicular stomatitis virus will be clarified. West Nile Virus (WNV) and Chikungunya virus are currently not specifically listed in the RG classification. WNV will now be listed as a RG3 Flavivirus and Chikungunya virus will be listed as a RG3 Togavirus. In addition, the coronavirus that is the causative agent of severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) will be listed as a RG3 coronavirus. All coronaviruses are currently RG2 viruses. The BMBL currently recommends BL3 containment for research with these three viruses. The following additions will be made to Appendix B–II–A. Risk Group 2 (RG2)—Bacterial Agents Including Chlamydia: Coxiella burnetii, Nine Mile strain, plaque purified, clone 4 *Francisella tularensis subspecies novicida (also referred to as Francisella novicida) strain, Utah112 *Francisella tularensis subspeciesholartica LVS *Francisella tularensis biovar tularensis strain ATCC 6223 (also known as strain B38) Yersinia pestis pgm(¥) (lacking the 102 kb pigmentation locus) Yersinia pestis lcr(¥) (lacking the LCR plasmid). The following footnote will be added regarding research with attenuated strains of Francisella: *For research involving high concentrations, BL3 practices should be considered (See Appendix G–II–C–2). The following changes/additions will be made to Appendix B–II–D (RG2 Viruses) of the NIH Guidelines: Alphaviruses (Togaviruses)—Group A Arboviruses. ‘‘Venezuelan equine encephalomyelitis vaccine strain TC–83’’ will be changed to: Venezuelan equine encephalomyelitis vaccine strains TC–83 and V3526. The following will be added to Appendix B–II–D: Alphaviruses (Togaviruses)—Group A Arboviruses. Add: Chikungunya vaccine strain 181/25. Arenaviruses.

Rhabdoviruses. ‘‘Vesicular stomatitis virus— laboratory adapted strains including VSV–Indiana, San Juan, and Glasgow’’ will be changed to: Vesicular stomatitis virus non-exotic strains: VSV–Indiana 1 serotype strains (e.g. Glasgow, MuddSummers, Orsay, San Juan) and VSV–New Jersey serotype strains (e.g. Ogden, Hazelhurst). The following additions will be made to Appendix B–III–D (RG3 Viruses and Prions) of the NIH Guidelines: Add: Coronaviruses. Add: SARS-associated coronavirus (SARS–CoV). Alphaviruses (Togaviruses)—Group A Arboviruses. Add: Chikungunya. Flaviviruses (Togaviruses)—Group B Arboviruses. Add: West Nile Virus (WNV). Dated: July 18, 2011.

Project: Assessment of the Underage Drinking Prevention Education Initiatives State/Territory Videos Project—New The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration/Center for Substance Abuse Prevention (SAMHSA/CSAP) is requesting Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval of three new data collection instruments— • State/Territory Video Contacts Interview Form • State/Territory Videos Project— Dissemination Update Form • Video Viewers Feedback Form This new information collection is for a process assessment of the Underage Drinking Prevention Education Initiatives State/Territory Videos project to be conducted from 2011 through 2014. In 2007, four States participated in a pilot study to produce videos highlighting the underage drinking (UAD) prevention efforts of the States. Based upon the success of those videos in showcasing the States’ UAD prevention activities, 10 additional States and 1 Territory were provided funds to produce UAD prevention videos in 2009. SAMHSA/CSAP intends to support the production of the State/ PO 00000 Frm 00043 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Territory UAD prevention videos annually. Therefore, from 2010 through 2013, SAMHSA/CSAP will invite approximately 45 additional States/ Territories to produce their own UAD prevention video. The information collected for the assessment will be used by SAMHSA/ CSAP to (1) Ascertain whether the videos produced under the State/ Territory Videos project are assisting States and Territories in communicating effectively about their underage drinking prevention initiatives, goals, and objectives; (2) document the dissemination efforts of the videos; and (3) enhance the technical assistance (TA) that is provided by the video production team in producing the videos. This information collection is being implemented under authority of Section 501(d)(4) of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. 290aa). There are three phases to the process assessment of the State/Territory Videos project—(1) State/Territory video contacts interviews, (2) dissemination updates, and (3) video viewers feedback. Phase I—State/Territory Video Contacts Interviews—A member of the assessment team will contact the designated State/Territory point of contact once the video is finalized. The focus of the interview will be around the State’s/Territory’s experience in producing the UAD prevention video, E:\FR\FM\25JYN1.SGM 25JYN1
