AGENCY: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (HHS/CDC), 
Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking; withdrawal.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) within 
the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is withdrawing a 
previously published Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) that 
solicited public comment on updates to the Scope and Definitions for 
its regulations.

DATES: The Notice of Proposed Rulemaking published at 77 FR 75939, 
December 26, 2012, is withdrawn, effective immediately.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For questions concerning this notice:

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On December 26, 2012 HHS/CDC published a 
Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) amending 42 CFR part 71 to update 
the Scope and Definitions to reflect modern terminology and plain 
language used globally by industry and public health partners. (77 FR 
75939). On the same date, HHS/CDC simultaneously published a companion 
direct final rule that proposed identical updates in this Federal 
Register because it believed that the proposed revisions were non-
controversial and unlikely to generate significant adverse comment. (77 
FR 75885). In the NPRM, HHS/CDC indicated that if we did not receive 
any significant adverse comments on the direct final rule by January 
25, 2013, we would publish a document in the Federal Register 
withdrawing this notice of proposed rulemaking and confirming the 
effective date of the direct final rule within 30 days after the 
comment period on the direct final rule ends. HHS/CDC received two 
comments to the companion NPRM. One comment pertained to food safety 
that raised issues unrelated to the companion NPRM and appears to have 
been submitted in error. The second comment was a general comment on 
immigration and was outside the scope of this rulemaking. HHS/CDC did 
not consider this comment to be a significant, adverse comment because 
it did not raise any issues that were relevant to the subject matter 
under consideration. Because HHS/CDC did not receive any relevant 
significant adverse comments within the specified comment period, we 
hereby withdraw this NPRM from rulemaking.
