Proposed Project State Surveillance under the National Toxic Substance Incidents Program PO 00000 Frm 00037 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 78361 (NTSIP)—NEW—Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR). Background and Brief Description The Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) is sponsoring the National Toxic Substance Incidents Program (NTSIP) to gather information from many resources to protect people from harm caused by spills and leaks of toxic substances. The NTSIP information will be used to help prevent or reduce the harm caused by toxic substance incidents. The NTSIP is modeled partially after the Hazardous Substances Emergency Events Surveillance (HSEES) Program which ran from 1992 to 2012 [OMB number: 0923–0008; expiration date 01/31/2012], with additions suggested by stakeholders to have a more complete program. The NTSIP has three components: a national database, state surveillance, and the response team. This information collection request is focused on the state surveillance component. The NTSIP is the only federal public health-based surveillance system to coordinate the collection, collation, analysis, and distribution of acute toxic substance incidents data to public health and safety practitioners. Because thousands of acute spills occur annually around the country, it is necessary to establish this surveillance system to describe the public health impacts on the population of the United States. The ATSDR is seeking a three-year approval for the ongoing collection of information for the state surveillance system. The main objectives of this information collection are to: 1. describe toxic substance releases and the public health consequences associated with such releases within the participating states, 2. identify and prioritize vulnerabilities in industry, transportation, and communities as they relate to toxic substance releases, and 3. identify, develop, and promote strategies that could prevent ongoing and future exposures and resultant health effects from toxic substance releases. The NTSIP surveillance system will be incident-driven and all acute toxic substance incidents occurring within the participating states will be included. Upon Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval, participating states will include Alaska, California, Louisiana, Michigan, Missouri, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Tennessee, Utah, and Wisconsin. A standardized set of data will be collected by the NTSIP coordinator for E:\FR\FM\26DEN1.SGM 26DEN1
