VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:39 Jan 24, 2013 Jkt 229001 ACTION: Notice. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is announcing that a proposed collection of information has been submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review and clearance under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (the PRA). DATES: Fax written comments on the collection of information by February 25, 2013. ADDRESSES: To ensure that comments on the information collection are received, OMB recommends that written comments be faxed to the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, OMB, Attn: FDA Desk Officer, FAX: 202–395–7285, or emailed to oira_submission@omb.eop.gov. All comments should be identified with the OMB control number 0910–0674. Also include the FDA docket number found in brackets in the heading of this document. SUMMARY: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Daniel Gittleson, Office of Information Management, Food and Drug Administration, 1350 Piccard Dr., PI50– 400B, Rockville, MD 20850, 301–796– 5156, daniel.gittleson@fda.hhs.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In compliance with 44 U.S.C. 3507, FDA has submitted the following proposed collection of information to OMB for review and clearance. Pretesting of Tobacco Communications—(OMB Control Number 0910–0674)—Extension In order to conduct educational and public information programs relating to tobacco use, as authorized by section 1003(d)(2)(D) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the FD&C Act) (21 U.S.C. 393(d)(2)(D)), and to develop stronger health warnings on tobacco packaging as authorized by the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act (Tobacco Control Act), it is beneficial for FDA to conduct research and studies relating to the control and prevention of disease as authorized by section 301 of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. 241(a)). In conducting such research, FDA will employ formative pretests to assess the likely effectiveness of tobacco PO 00000 Frm 00056 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 communications with specific target audiences. The information collected will serve two major purposes. First, as formative research it will provide the critical knowledge needed about target audiences. FDA must first understand critical influences on people’s decisionmaking process when choosing to use, not use, or quit using tobacco products. In addition to understanding the decisionmaking processes of adults, it is also critical to understand the decisionmaking processes among adolescents (ages 13 to 17), where communications will aim to discourage tobacco use before it starts. Knowledge of these decisionmaking processes will be applied by FDA to help design effective communication strategies, messages, and warning labels. Second, as initial testing, it will allow FDA to assess the potential effectiveness of messages and materials in reaching and successfully communicating with their intended audiences. Pretesting messages with a sample of the target audience will allow FDA to refine messages while they are still in the developmental stage. By utilizing appropriate qualitative and quantitative methodologies, FDA will be able to: (1) Better understand characteristics of the target audience— its attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors—and use risk communications; (2) more efficiently and effectively design messages and select formats that have the greatest potential to influence the target audience’s attitudes and behavior in a favorable way; (3) determine the best promotion and distribution channels to reach the target audience with appropriate messages; and (4) expend limited program resource dollars wisely and effectively. In the Federal Register of August 17, 2012 (77 FR 49819), FDA published a 60-day notice requesting public comment on the proposed collection of information. Three comments were received, which included one comment that was not PRA-related and beyond the scope of this document, and one comment that was in full support of pretesting tobacco communications. The third commenter indicated that the authorizing statute was incorrectly identified. The correct authorizing statute is section 1003(d)(2)(D) of the FD&C Act.

Proposed Projects

    Title: ANA Project Impact Assessment Survey.
    OMB No.: 0970-0379
    Description: The information collected by the Project Impact 
Assessment Survey is needed for two main reasons: (1) To collect 
crucial information required to report on the Administration for Native 
Americans' (ANA) established Government Performance and Results Act 
(GPRA) measures, and (2) to properly abide by ANA's congressionally-
mandated statute (42 United States Code 2991 et seq.) found within the 
Native American Programs Act of 1974, as amended, which states that ANA 
will evaluate projects assisted through ANA grant dollars ``including 
evaluations that describe and measure the impact of such projects, 
their effectiveness in achieving stated goals, their impact on related 
programs, and their structure and mechanisms for delivery of 
services.'' The information collected with this survey will fulfill 
ANA's statutory requirement and will also serve as an important 
planning and performance tool for ANA.
    Respondents: Tribal Governments, Native American nonprofit 
organizations, and Tribal Colleges and Universities.
