ACTION: Notice. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is announcing that a proposed collection of information has been submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review and clearance under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. SUMMARY: Fax written comments on the collection of information by December 4, 2015. ADDRESSES: To ensure that comments on the information collection are received, OMB recommends that written comments be faxed to the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, OMB, Attn: FDA Desk Officer, FAX: 202–395–7285, or emailed to oira_ submission@omb.eop.gov. All comments should be identified with the OMB control number 0910–0021 and title ‘‘Agency Information Collection Activities; Submission for Office of Management and Budget Review; Comment Request; Interstate Shellfish Dealers Certificate.’’ Also include the FDA docket number found in brackets in the heading of this document. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: FDA PRA Staff, Office of Operations, Food and Drug Administration, 8455 Colesville Rd., COLE–14526, Silver Spring, MD 20993–0002, PRAStaff@ fda.hhs.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In compliance with 44 U.S.C. 3507, FDA has submitted the following proposed collection of information to OMB for review and clearance. DATES: Interstate Shellfish Dealer’s Certificate OMB Control Number 0910–0021— Extension Under 42 U.S.C. 243, we are required to cooperate with and aid State and local authorities in the enforcement of their health regulations and are authorized to assist States in the prevention and suppression of communicable diseases. Under this authority, we participate with State regulatory agencies, some foreign nations, and the molluscan shellfish industry in the National Shellfish Sanitation Program (NSSP). NSSP is a voluntary, cooperative program to promote the safety of molluscan shellfish by providing for the classification and patrol of shellfish growing waters and for the inspection and certification of shellfish processors. Each participating State and foreign nation monitors its molluscan shellfish processors and issues certificates for those that meet the State or foreign shellfish control authority’s criteria. Each participating State and nation provides a certificate of its certified shellfish processors to FDA on Form FDA 3038, ‘‘Interstate Shellfish Dealer’s Certificate.’’ We use this information to publish the ‘‘Interstate Certified Shellfish Shippers List,’’ a monthly comprehensive listing of all molluscan shellfish processors certified under the cooperative program. If we did not collect the information necessary to compile this list, participating States would not be able to identify and keep out shellfish processed by uncertified processors in other States and foreign nations. Consequently, NSSP would not be able to control the distribution of uncertified and possibly unsafe shellfish in interstate commerce, and its effectiveness would be nullified. In the Federal Register of August 20, 2015 (80 FR 50640), FDA published a 60-day notice requesting public comment on the proposed collection of information. No comments were received. We estimate the burden of this collection of information as follows: TABLE 1—ESTIMATED ANNUAL REPORTING BURDEN 1 Activity FDA Form No. Number of respondents Number of responses per respondent Total annual responses Avg. burden per response Total hours Submission of Interstate Shellfish Dealer’s Certificate ...................................... 3038 40 57 2,280 0.10 228 asabaliauskas on DSK5VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 1 There are no capital costs or operating and maintenance costs associated with this collection of information. We estimate that 40 respondents will submit 2,280 Interstate Shellfish Dealer’s Certificates annually, for a total burden of 228 hours (2,280 submissions × 0.10 hours = 228 hours). This estimate is based on our experience with this information collection and the number of certificates received in the past 3 years, which has remained constant. Dated: October 30, 2015.

The Court is directed by statute to appoint special masters who take evidence, conduct hearings as appropriate, and make initial decisions as to eligibility for, and amount of, compensation. A petition may be filed with respect to injuries, disabilities, illnesses, conditions, and deaths resulting from vaccines described in the Vaccine Injury Table (the Table) set forth at 42 CFR 100.3. This Table lists for each covered childhood vaccine the conditions that may lead to compensation and, for each condition, the time period for occurrence of the first symptom or manifestation of onset or of significant aggravation after vaccine administration. Compensation may also be awarded for conditions not listed in the Table and for conditions that are manifested outside the time periods specified in the Table, but only if the asabaliauskas on DSK5VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:00 Nov 03, 2015 Jkt 238001 petitioner shows that the condition was caused by one of the listed vaccines.

Section 2112(b)(2) also provides that the special master ‘‘shall afford all interested persons an opportunity to submit relevant, written information’’ relating to the following: 1. The existence of evidence ‘‘that there is not a preponderance of the evidence that the illness, disability, injury, condition, or death described in the petition is due to factors unrelated to the administration of the vaccine described in the petition,’’ and 2. Any allegation in a petition that the petitioner either: a. ‘‘[S]ustained, or had significantly aggravated, any illness, disability, injury, or condition not set forth in the Vaccine Injury Table but which was caused by’’ one of the vaccines referred to in the Table, or b. ‘‘[S]ustained, or had significantly aggravated, any illness, disability, injury, or condition set forth in the Vaccine Injury Table the first symptom or manifestation of the onset or significant aggravation of which did not occur within the time period set forth in the Table but which was caused by a vaccine’’ referred to in the Table.

[[Page 68324]]

SUMMARY: The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) is 
publishing this notice of petitions received under the National Vaccine 
Injury Compensation Program (the Program), as required by Section 
2112(b)(2) of the Public Health Service (PHS) Act, as amended. While 
the Secretary of Health and Human Services is named as the respondent 
in all proceedings brought by the filing of petitions for compensation 
under the Program, the United States Court of Federal Claims is charged 
by statute with responsibility for considering and acting upon the 
petitions.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For information about requirements for 
filing petitions, and the Program in general, contact the Clerk, United 
States Court of Federal Claims, 717 Madison Place NW., Washington, DC 
20005, (202) 357-6400. For information on HRSA's role in the Program, 
contact the Director, National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, 
5600 Fishers Lane, Room 11C-26, Rockville, MD 20857; (301) 443-6593, or

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Program provides a system of no-fault 
compensation for certain individuals who have been injured by specified 
childhood vaccines. Subtitle 2 of Title XXI of the PHS Act, 42 U.S.C. 
300aa-10 et seq., provides that those seeking compensation are to file 
a petition with the U.S. Court of Federal Claims and to serve a copy of 
the petition on the Secretary of Health and Human Services, who is 
named as the respondent in each proceeding. The Secretary has delegated 
this responsibility under the Program to HRSA. The Court is directed by 
statute to appoint special masters who take evidence, conduct hearings 
as appropriate, and make initial decisions as to eligibility for, and 
amount of, compensation.
    A petition may be filed with respect to injuries, disabilities, 
illnesses, conditions, and deaths resulting from vaccines described in 
the Vaccine Injury Table (the Table) set forth at 42 CFR 100.3. This 
Table lists for each covered childhood vaccine the conditions that may 
lead to compensation and, for each condition, the time period for 
occurrence of the first symptom or manifestation of onset or of 
significant aggravation after vaccine administration. Compensation may 
also be awarded for conditions not listed in the Table and for 
conditions that are manifested outside the time periods specified in 
the Table, but only if the petitioner shows that the condition was 
caused by one of the listed vaccines.
    Section 2112(b)(2) of the PHS Act, 42 U.S.C. 300aa-12(b)(2), 
requires that ``[w]ithin 30 days after the Secretary receives service 
of any petition filed under section 2111 the Secretary shall publish 
notice of such petition in the Federal Register.'' Set forth below is a 
list of petitions received by HRSA on September 1, 2015, through 
September 30, 2015. This list provides the name of petitioner, city and 
state of vaccination (if unknown then city and state of person or 
attorney filing claim), and case number. In cases where the Court has 
redacted the name of a petitioner and/or the case number, the list 
reflects such redaction.
    Section 2112(b)(2) also provides that the special master ``shall 
afford all interested persons an opportunity to submit relevant, 
written information'' relating to the following:
    1. The existence of evidence ``that there is not a preponderance of 
the evidence that the illness, disability, injury, condition, or death 
described in the petition is due to factors unrelated to the 
administration of the vaccine described in the petition,'' and
    2. Any allegation in a petition that the petitioner either:
    a. ``[S]ustained, or had significantly aggravated, any illness, 
disability, injury, or condition not set forth in the Vaccine Injury 
Table but which was caused by'' one of the vaccines referred to in the 
Table, or
    b. ``[S]ustained, or had significantly aggravated, any illness, 
disability, injury, or condition set forth in the Vaccine Injury Table 
the first symptom or manifestation of the onset or significant 
aggravation of which did not occur within the time period set forth in 
the Table but which was caused by a vaccine'' referred to in the Table.
    In accordance with Section 2112(b)(2), all interested persons may 
submit written information relevant to the issues described above in 
the case of the petitions listed below. Any person choosing to do so 
should file an original and three (3) copies of the information with 
the Clerk of the U.S. Court of Federal Claims at the address listed 
above (under the heading FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT), with a copy 
to HRSA addressed to Director, Division of Injury Compensation 
Programs, Healthcare Systems Bureau, 5600 Fishers Lane, Room 11C-26, 
Rockville, MD 20857. The Court's caption (Petitioner's Name v. 
Secretary of Health and Human Services) and the docket number assigned 
to the petition should be used as the caption for the written 
submission. Chapter 35 of title 44, United States Code, related to 
paperwork reduction, does not apply to information required for 
purposes of carrying out the Program.

    Dated: October 28, 2015.
James Macrae,
Acting Administrator.
