Background and Brief Description In 2012, CDC’s Office on Smoking and Health obtained OMB approval of a generic clearance that established a unified information collection framework for the development of tobacco-related health messages, including messages related to CDC’s ACA-funded tobacco education campaign (Message Testing for Tobacco Communication Activities (MTTCA), OMB No. 0920–0910, exp. 1/31/2015). The MTTCA clearance was initially approved with the following estimates: 14,974 annualized responses and 5,775 annualized burden hours. On January 2, 2014, CDC obtained OMB approval to increase the capacity of the MTTCA clearance to 36,847 annualized responses and 7,219 burden hours. CDC has employed the MTTCA clearance to collect information about adult smokers’ and nonsmokers’ attitudes and perceptions, and to pretest draft messages and materials for clarity, salience, appeal, and persuasiveness. A variety of information collection strategies are supported through this mechanism, including indepth interviews, in-person focus groups, online focus groups, computerassisted, in-person, or telephone interviews, and online surveys. CDC requests OMB approval for each data collection by submitting a project- E:\FR\FM\11AUN1.SGM 11AUN1 46830 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 154 / Monday, August 11, 2014 / Notices specific request that describes project purpose, use, and methodology. CDC plans to request OMB approval to extend the MTTCA clearance, with changes, for three years. The Revision information collection request (ICR) will propose further increases in the annualized estimated number of respondents and the annualized estimated burden hours. These increases are needed to support CDC’s planned information collections and to accommodate additional needs that CDC may identify during the next three years. For example, the MTTCA generic clearance may be used to facilitate the development of tobacco-related health communications of interest for CDC’s collaborative efforts with other federal partners including, but not limited to, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and the National Cancer Institute (NCI). At this time the MTTCA clearance is expected to be sufficient to test tobacco related messages developed by CDC. However, the MTTCA clearance should not replace the need for additional generic clearance Finally, there may be a need to test prevention and cessation messages related to products that are not currently regulated, including non-combustible tobacco products (electronic nicotine delivery systems such as electronic cigarettes or e-cigarettes) and some combustible products (such as cigars/ little cigars and cigarillos). In the event that the FDA receives authority to regulate these products and decides to do a campaign about them, CDC will work closely with FDA to avoid duplication. Additionally, CDC will share with FDA the findings from any formative work related to the youth audience. CDC will continue to use the MTTCA clearance to develop and test messages and materials for current and future phases of the ACA-funded media campaign, OSH’s ongoing programmatic initiatives including, but not limited to, the Media Campaign Resource Center, reports from the Office of the Surgeon General, and other communication efforts and materials. Participation is voluntary and there are no costs to respondents other than their time. mechanisms HHS and other federal partners may need to test tobacco messages related to their campaigns and initiatives. CDC’s revised MTTCA clearance will also describe expansion of the target audience(s) that may be involved in message testing, such as youth ages 13– 17 years. The 2014 Surgeon General’s Report concluded that there is already sufficient evidence to caution youth against the use of electronic cigarettes. Tobacco and electronic cigarette advertising and promotional activities can prompt smoking initiation, especially among youth. Recent studies have found that 90.7% of middle school students and 92.9% of high school students have been exposed to protobacco advertisements in stores, magazines and on the internet. Media campaigns have been shown to be effective as part of a comprehensive tobacco control program to decrease the initiation of tobacco use among youths and young adults. A coordinated series of health message testing activities will be required to support future development of effective, audiencespecific and channel-specific messages for CDC’s ACA-funded campaign.

Proposed Project

    Message Testing for Tobacco Communication Activities (OMB No. 0920-
0910, exp. 1/31/2015)--Revision--National Center for Chronic Disease 
Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), Centers for Disease Control 
and Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

    In 2012, CDC's Office on Smoking and Health obtained OMB approval 
of a generic clearance that established a unified information 
collection framework for the development of tobacco-related health 
messages, including messages related to CDC's ACA-funded tobacco 
education campaign (Message Testing for Tobacco Communication 
Activities (MTTCA), OMB No. 0920-0910, exp. 1/31/2015).
    The MTTCA clearance was initially approved with the following 
estimates: 14,974 annualized responses and 5,775 annualized burden 
hours. On January 2, 2014, CDC obtained OMB approval to increase the 
capacity of the MTTCA clearance to 36,847 annualized responses and 
7,219 burden hours.
    CDC has employed the MTTCA clearance to collect information about 
adult smokers' and nonsmokers' attitudes and perceptions, and to pre-
test draft messages and materials for clarity, salience, appeal, and 
persuasiveness. A variety of information collection strategies are 
supported through this mechanism, including in-depth interviews, in-
person focus groups, online focus groups, computer-assisted, in-person, 
or telephone interviews, and online surveys. CDC requests OMB approval 
for each data collection by submitting a project-

specific request that describes project purpose, use, and methodology.
    CDC plans to request OMB approval to extend the MTTCA clearance, 
with changes, for three years. The Revision information collection 
request (ICR) will propose further increases in the annualized 
estimated number of respondents and the annualized estimated burden 
hours. These increases are needed to support CDC's planned information 
collections and to accommodate additional needs that CDC may identify 
during the next three years. For example, the MTTCA generic clearance 
may be used to facilitate the development of tobacco-related health 
communications of interest for CDC's collaborative efforts with other 
federal partners including, but not limited to, the Food and Drug 
Administration (FDA), the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services 
Administration (SAMHSA), the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and 
the National Cancer Institute (NCI). At this time the MTTCA clearance 
is expected to be sufficient to test tobacco related messages developed 
by CDC. However, the MTTCA clearance should not replace the need for 
additional generic clearance mechanisms HHS and other federal partners 
may need to test tobacco messages related to their campaigns and 
initiatives.
    CDC's revised MTTCA clearance will also describe expansion of the 
target audience(s) that may be involved in message testing, such as 
youth ages 13-17 years. The 2014 Surgeon General's Report concluded 
that there is already sufficient evidence to caution youth against the 
use of electronic cigarettes. Tobacco and electronic cigarette 
advertising and promotional activities can prompt smoking initiation, 
especially among youth. Recent studies have found that 90.7% of middle 
school students and 92.9% of high school students have been exposed to 
pro-tobacco advertisements in stores, magazines and on the internet. 
Media campaigns have been shown to be effective as part of a 
comprehensive tobacco control program to decrease the initiation of 
tobacco use among youths and young adults. A coordinated series of 
health message testing activities will be required to support future 
development of effective, audience-specific and channel-specific 
messages for CDC's ACA-funded campaign.
    Finally, there may be a need to test prevention and cessation 
messages related to products that are not currently regulated, 
including non-combustible tobacco products (electronic nicotine 
delivery systems such as electronic cigarettes or e-cigarettes) and 
some combustible products (such as cigars/little cigars and 
cigarillos). In the event that the FDA receives authority to regulate 
these products and decides to do a campaign about them, CDC will work 
closely with FDA to avoid duplication. Additionally, CDC will share 
with FDA the findings from any formative work related to the youth 
audience.
    CDC will continue to use the MTTCA clearance to develop and test 
messages and materials for current and future phases of the ACA-funded 
media campaign, OSH's ongoing programmatic initiatives including, but 
not limited to, the Media Campaign Resource Center, reports from the 
Office of the Surgeon General, and other communication efforts and 
materials. Participation is voluntary and there are no costs to 
respondents other than their time.
