Agency Information Collection Activities: Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request, 34448-34449 [2015-14727]

Download as PDF 34448 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 115 / Tuesday, June 16, 2015 / Notices based on experience with the previous CAM program. There are two sources of data collection burden for the performance system. First, FTDC staff extracts data from secondary sources for the child, parent/caregiver and family functioning data elements for biannual data uploads. The total number of responses is two per year; with each upload taking approximately 16 hours at each site. In addition to the data extraction, FTDC staff will complete 2 administrations (intake and discharge) of the NCFAS for each family (approximately 267 families per year based on estimates extrapolated from the CAM program). The NCFAS takes approximately .75 hours to complete per family per administration. The estimated total cost of the time FTDC staff will spend completing data collection is $15,952 per year (total number of staff hours, 720.5 hours, multiplied by $22.14, the estimated average hourly wages for social work professionals as published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 2013).

Project: Notification of Intent To Use Schedule III, IV, or V Opioid Drugs for the Maintenance and Detoxification Treatment of Opiate Addiction Under 21 U.S.C. 823(g)(2) (OMB No. 0930– 0234)—Extension The Drug Addiction Treatment Act of 2000 (‘‘DATA,’’ Pub. L. 106–310) amended the Controlled Substances Act (21 U.S.C. 823(g)(2)) to permit practitioners (physicians) to seek and obtain waivers to prescribe certain approved narcotic treatment drugs for the treatment of opiate addiction. The legislation sets eligibility requirements and certification requirements as well as an interagency notification review process for physicians who seek waivers. The legislation was amended in 2005 to eliminate the patient limit for physicians in group practices, and in 2006, to permit certain physicians to treat up to 100 patients. To implement these provisions, SAMHSA developed a notification form (SMA–167) that facilitates the submission and review of notifications. The form provides the information necessary to determine whether practitioners (i.e., independent physicians) meet the qualifications for waivers set forth under the new law. Use of this form will enable physicians to know they have provided all information needed to determine whether practitioners are eligible for a waiver. However, there is no prohibition on use of other means to provide requisite information. The Secretary will convey notification information and PO 00000 Frm 00086 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 determinations to the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), which will assign an identification number to qualifying practitioners; this number will be included in the practitioner’s registration under 21 U.S.C. 823(f). Practitioners may use the form for three types of notification: (a) New, (b) immediate, and (c) to notify of their intent to treat up to 100 patients. Under ‘‘new’’ notifications, practitioners may make their initial waiver requests to SAMHSA. ‘‘Immediate’’ notifications inform SAMHSA and the Attorney General of a practitioner’s intent to prescribe immediately to facilitate the treatment of an individual (one) patient under 21 U.S.C. 823(g)(2)(E)(ii). Finally, the form may be used by physicians with waivers to certify their need and intent to treat up to 100 patients. The form collects data on the following items: Practitioner name; state medical license number and DEA registration number; address of primary location, telephone and fax numbers; email address; name and address of group practice; group practice employer identification number; names and DEA registration numbers of group practitioners; purpose of notification new, immediate, or renewal; certification of qualifying criteria for treatment and management of opiate dependent patients; certification of capacity to refer patients for appropriate counseling and other appropriate ancillary services; certification of maximum patient load, certification to use only those drug products that meet the criteria in the law. The form also notifies practitioners of Privacy Act considerations, and permits practitioners to expressly consent to disclose limited information to the E:\FR\FM\16JNN1.SGM 16JNN1 34449 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 115 / Tuesday, June 16, 2015 / Notices SAMHSA Buprenorphine Physician Locator.

Therefore, SAMHSA has developed a Survey of State Underage Drinking Prevention Policies and Practices (the ‘‘State Survey’’) to provide input for the state-by-state report on prevention and enforcement activities related to underage drinking component of the Annual Report to Congress on the 1 Public Law 109–422.

Congress’ purpose in mandating the collection of data on state policies and programs through the State Survey is to provide policymakers and the public with currently unavailable but much needed information regarding state underage drinking prevention policies and programs. SAMHSA and other 2 Nine additional policies have been added to the Report to Congress pursuant to Congressional appropriations language or the Secretary’s authority granted by the STOP Act.

Agency Information Collection Activities: Submission for OMB 
Review; Comment Request

    Periodically, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services 
Administration (SAMHSA) will publish a summary of information 
collection requests under OMB review, in compliance with the Paperwork 
Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35). To request a copy of these 
documents, call the SAMHSA Reports Clearance Officer on (240) 276-1243.

Project: Notification of Intent To Use Schedule III, IV, or V Opioid 
Drugs for the Maintenance and Detoxification Treatment of Opiate 
Addiction Under 21 U.S.C. 823(g)(2) (OMB No. 0930-0234)--Extension

    The Drug Addiction Treatment Act of 2000 (``DATA,'' Pub. L. 106-
310) amended the Controlled Substances Act (21 U.S.C. 823(g)(2)) to 
permit practitioners (physicians) to seek and obtain waivers to 
prescribe certain approved narcotic treatment drugs for the treatment 
of opiate addiction. The legislation sets eligibility requirements and 
certification requirements as well as an interagency notification 
review process for physicians who seek waivers. The legislation was 
amended in 2005 to eliminate the patient limit for physicians in group 
practices, and in 2006, to permit certain physicians to treat up to 100 
patients.
    To implement these provisions, SAMHSA developed a notification form 
(SMA-167) that facilitates the submission and review of notifications. 
The form provides the information necessary to determine whether 
practitioners (i.e., independent physicians) meet the qualifications 
for waivers set forth under the new law. Use of this form will enable 
physicians to know they have provided all information needed to 
determine whether practitioners are eligible for a waiver.
    However, there is no prohibition on use of other means to provide 
requisite information. The Secretary will convey notification 
information and determinations to the Drug Enforcement Administration 
(DEA), which will assign an identification number to qualifying 
practitioners; this number will be included in the practitioner's 
registration under 21 U.S.C. 823(f).
    Practitioners may use the form for three types of notification: (a) 
New, (b) immediate, and (c) to notify of their intent to treat up to 
100 patients. Under ``new'' notifications, practitioners may make their 
initial waiver requests to SAMHSA. ``Immediate'' notifications inform 
SAMHSA and the Attorney General of a practitioner's intent to prescribe 
immediately to facilitate the treatment of an individual (one) patient 
under 21 U.S.C. 823(g)(2)(E)(ii). Finally, the form may be used by 
physicians with waivers to certify their need and intent to treat up to 
100 patients.
    The form collects data on the following items: Practitioner name; 
state medical license number and DEA registration number; address of 
primary location, telephone and fax numbers; email address; name and 
address of group practice; group practice employer identification 
number; names and DEA registration numbers of group practitioners; 
purpose of notification new, immediate, or renewal; certification of 
qualifying criteria for treatment and management of opiate dependent 
patients; certification of capacity to refer patients for appropriate 
counseling and other appropriate ancillary services; certification of 
maximum patient load, certification to use only those drug products 
that meet the criteria in the law. The form also notifies practitioners 
of Privacy Act considerations, and permits practitioners to expressly 
consent to disclose limited information to the
