Delegation of Authority, 65215 [2014-26056]

Download as PDF 65215 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 212 / Monday, November 3, 2014 / Notices reporting requirements, records retention requirements, and submit annual surveillance plans and annually report surveillance results. In the Permanent Certification Program final rule (76 FR 1312–14), we solicited public comment on each of the information collections associated with the requirements described in regulation at 45 CFR 170.503(b), 170.520, and 170.523(f), (g), and (i), respectively. In the ‘‘2014 Edition’’ final rule (77 FR 54275–76), we sought comment on these collection requirements again and on the information collection requirement at § 170.523(f)(8). We anticipate that there will continue to be three ONC–ACBs participating in the ONC HIT Certification Program as this is the current number of ONC– ACBs. Therefore, we have aligned the estimated number of respondents for the applicable regulation provisions (i.e., §§ 170.523(f), 170.523(i), and 170.540(c)) with the current number of ONC–ACBs. We have also revised the estimated number of respondents for § 170.520 (new applicants for ONC–ACB status) based on past application and authorization processes for ONC–ACBs. Similarly, we have revised the estimated number of respondents for § 170.503(b) (applicants for ONC–AA status) based on past selection processes for the ONC–AA. We have retained the same number of responses per respondent and average burden hours per response for the regulation provisions previously included in OMB control number 0995– 0013.
