    In accordance with Executive Order 12862, the National Institute of

include, but may not be limited to focus groups, reply cards that 
accompany product distributions, and Web-based surveys and dialog boxes 
that offer customers the opportunity to express their level of 
satisfaction with NIST products, services, and information and for 
ongoing dialogue with NIST. NIST will limit its inquiries to data 
collections that solicit strictly voluntary options and will not 
collect information that is required or regulated. No assurances of

receive a response.
