    Abstract: This is a request for OMB approval for revisions of the 
application documents used to collect information for determining if 
the interested party is compliant with membership and transplant 
program requirements contained in the Final Rule Governing the 
Operation of the Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network (OPTN), 
``the OPTN final rule''.
    Need and Proposed Use of the Information: Membership in the OPTN is 
determined by submission of application materials to the OPTN (not to 
HRSA) demonstrating that the applicant meets all required criteria for 
membership and transplant program requirements and will agree to comply 
with all applicable provisions of the National Organ Transplant Act, as 
amended, 42 U.S.C. 273, et seq. Section 1138 of the Social Security 
Act, as amended, 42 U.S.C. 1320b-8 (section 1138) requires that 
hospitals in which transplants are performed be members of, and abide 
by, the rules and requirements (as approved by the Secretary of the 
HHS) of the OPTN as a condition of participation in Medicare and 
Medicaid for the hospital. Section 1138 contains a similar provision 
for the organ procurement organizations (OPOs) and makes membership in 
the OPTN and compliance with its operating rules and requirements (that 
have been approved by the Secretary), including those relating to data 
collection, mandatory for all transplant hospitals and OPOs. These 
applications are developed to prompt submission of all the information 
required to make such membership approval decisions. In addition, 
hospitals wishing to obtain designation for particular (e.g., organ 
specific) transplant programs must submit applications to the OPTN.
    Likely Respondents: Parties seeking initial OPTN membership 
approval and then maintenance of the existing OPTN approval. Applicants 
will include: every hospital seeking to perform organ transplants; 
every non-profit organization seeking to become an organ procurement 
organization; and every medical laboratory seeking to become a 
histocompatibility laboratory. In addition, there are other OPTN 
membership categories for organizations and individuals who want to 
participate in the organ transplant system and they too are required to 
fill out an appropriate application.
    Burden Statement: Burden in this context means the time expended by 
persons to generate, maintain, retain, disclose or provide the 
information requested. This includes the time needed to review 
instructions; to develop, acquire, install and utilize technology and 
systems for the purpose of collecting, validating and verifying 
information, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and 
providing information; to train personnel and to be able to respond to 
a collection of information; to search data sources; to complete and 
review the collection of information; and to transmit or otherwise 
disclose the information. The total annual burden hours estimated for 
this ICR are summarized in the table below.
