The core set includes sociodemographic characteristics, health status, health care services, health insurance, health conditions, and health behaviors. For 2014, supplemental questions will be cycled on pertaining to hearing and balance, arthritis, and heart disease and stroke. Supplemental topics that continue or are enhanced from previous years will be related to the Affordable Care Act, food security, children’s mental health, disability and functioning, smokeless tobacco, hepatitis screening, immunizations, and computer use. In 2015, the primary supplements will be on cancer control and prevention and occupational exposures in addition to continuing topics from 2014. In 2016, topics will include the primary supplement on balance and sensory problems and shorter sets of questions pertaining to released as a separate file from the ongoing NHIS. In accordance with the 1995 initiative to increase the integration of surveys within the Department of Health and Human Services, respondents to the NHIS serve as the sampling frame for the Medical Expenditure Panel Survey conducted by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality. The NHIS has long been used by government, university, and private researchers to evaluate both general health and specific issues, such as cancer, diabetes, and access to health care. It is a leading source of data for the Congressionallymandated ‘‘Health US’’ and related publications, as well as the single most important source of statistics to track progress toward the National Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Objectives, ‘‘Healthy People 2020.’’ There is no cost to the respondent other than their time. Healthy People 2020 and health disparities. A Web/CATI multimode follow-back survey will be conducted from sample adult respondents from the 2013–2015 NHIS. The follow-back surveys will focus on topics related to the Affordable Care Act including health care access and use, and health insurance coverage and will include Web, telephone, and mail interviews. Questions related to federal and state health insurance marketplaces will be included. To improve the analytic utility of NHIS data, minority populations are oversampled annually. In 2014, in addition to ongoing sample augmentation procedures, NCHS will introduce a Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander oversample. Residents in a sample of 4,000 addresses identified from the 2012 American Community Survey will be administered the 2014 NHIS questionnaire.

The Application for Permit to Import Biological Agents, Infectious Substances and Vectors of Human Disease into the United States form is used by laboratory facilities, such as those operated by government agencies, universities, and research institutions to request a permit for the importation of biological agents, infectious substances, or vectors of human disease. This form currently requests applicant and sender contact information; description of material for importation; facility isolation and containment information; and personnel qualifications. CDC plans to revise this application to request information on where the imported material will be stored at the recipient facility and who would be responsible for this location; verification that the permittee has implemented biosafety measures commensurate with the hazard posed by the infectious biological agent, infectious substance, and/or vector to be imported, and the level of risk given its intended use; and a secondary contact information for the permittee to provide in case the permittee is unavailable.

Estimates of burden for the survey are based on information obtained from the CDC import permit database based on the number of permits issued on annual basis since 2010. The total estimated annual burden for the data collection is 545 hours. We estimate a decrease in the number of respondents from 2,000 in 2011 to 1,625 due to recent trends and changes in the regulation. The daily operations have observed a decrease in the number of request for an import permit since 2011. In addition, the changes in 42 CFR 71.54, which became effective April 5, 2013, specify situations where an application for a permit is no longer required.

Proposed Project

    Importation of Etiologic Agents (42 CFR 71.54) (OMB Control No. 
0920-0199, exp. 1/31/2014)--Revision--Office of Public Health 
Preparedness and Response (OPHPR), Centers for Disease Control and 
Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

    Section 361 of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. 264), as 
amended, authorizes the Secretary of Health and Human Services to make 
and enforce such regulations as are necessary to prevent the 
introduction, transmission, or spread of communicable diseases from 
foreign countries into the States or possessions, or from one State or 
possession into any other State or possession. Part 71 of Title 42, 
Code of Federal Regulations (Foreign Quarantine) sets forth provisions 
to prevent the introduction, transmission, and spread of communicable 
disease from foreign countries into the United States. Subpart F--
Importations--contains provisions for the importation of infectious 
biological agents, infectious substances, and vectors (42 CFR 71.54); 
requiring persons that import these materials to obtain a permit issued 
by the CDC.
    CDC requests Office of Management and Budget approval to collect 
information for three years using the Application for Permit to Import 
Biological Agents, Infectious Substances and Vectors of Human Disease 
into the United States and Application for a Permit to Import or 
Transport Live Bats.

We are also requesting a title change to read--Import Permit 
Applications (42 CFR 71.54).
    The Application for Permit to Import Biological Agents, Infectious 
Substances and Vectors of Human Disease into the United States form is 
used by laboratory facilities, such as those operated by government 
agencies, universities, and research institutions to request a permit 
for the importation of biological agents, infectious substances, or 
vectors of human disease. This form currently requests applicant and 
sender contact information; description of material for importation; 
facility isolation and containment information; and personnel 
qualifications. CDC plans to revise this application to request 
information on where the imported material will be stored at the 
recipient facility and who would be responsible for this location; 
verification that the permittee has implemented biosafety measures 
commensurate with the hazard posed by the infectious biological agent, 
infectious substance, and/or vector to be imported, and the level of 
risk given its intended use; and a secondary contact information for 
the permittee to provide in case the permittee is unavailable. These 
additional data requests will not affect the burden hours.
    The Application for Permit to Import or Transport Live Bats form is 
used by laboratory facilities such as those operated by government 
agencies, universities, research institutions, and for educational, 
exhibition or scientific purposes to request a permit for the 
importation, and any subsequent distribution after importation, of live 
bats. This form currently requests the applicant and sender contact 
information; a description and intended use of bats to be imported; and 
facility isolation and containment information. CDC plans to revise 
this application to request secondary contact information for the 
permittee to provide in case the permittee is unavailable. These 
additional data requests will not affect the burden hours.
    Estimates of burden for the survey are based on information 
obtained from the CDC import permit database based on the number of 
permits issued on annual basis since 2010. The total estimated annual 
burden for the data collection is 545 hours. We estimate a decrease in 
the number of respondents from 2,000 in 2011 to 1,625 due to recent 
trends and changes in the regulation. The daily operations have 
observed a decrease in the number of request for an import permit since 
2011. In addition, the changes in 42 CFR 71.54, which became effective 
April 5, 2013, specify situations where an application for a permit is 
no longer required. For example, the importation of a select agent that 
is regulated under 42 CFR Part 73 no longer requires a permit be 
issued.
    There are no costs to respondents except their time.
