Need and Use of Information Collection: This application system will provide one electronic form to be used by all research organizations that wish to request a Certificate of Confidentiality (CoC) from NIH. As described in the authorizing legislation (Section 301(d) of the Public Health Service Act, 42 U.S.C. 241(d)), CoCs are issued by the agencies of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), including NIH, to authorize researchers conducting sensitive research to protect the privacy of human research subjects by enabling them to refuse to release names and identifying characteristics of subjects to anyone not connected with the research. At the NIH, the issuance of CoCs has been delegated to the individual NIH Institutes and Centers (ICs). The NIH ICs collectively issue approximately 1,000 new CoCs each year for eligible research projects. However, the process for submitting a CoC request is not consistent across the ICs, which creates confusion for applicants. To make the application process consistent across the entire agency, the OER is proposing to use an electronic application system that will be accessed by research organizations that wish to request a CoC from any NIH E:\FR\FM\29APN1.SGM 29APN1
