Proposed Project Background and Brief Description Under the Public Health Service Act (42 United States Code 264) and under 42 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) § 71.32(b) and 42 CFR 70.2, CDC can order airlines and maritime lines operating conveyances arriving from another country or traveling between states to submit a record for passengers and crew that CDC believes were exposed to co-traveler infected with a communicable disease of public health concern. Stopping a communicable disease outbreak—whether it is naturally occurring or intentionally caused— requires the use of the most rapid and effective public health tools available. Basic public health practices, such as collaborating with airlines in the identification and notification of potentially exposed contacts, are critical tools in the fight against the introduction, transmission, and spread of communicable diseases in the United States. The collection of comprehensive, pertinent contact information enables Quarantine Public Health Officers in CDC’s Division of Global Migration and Quarantine (DGMQ) to notify state and local health departments in order for them to make contact with individuals who may have been exposed to a contagious person during travel and identify appropriate next steps. In the event that there is a confirmed case of communicable disease of public health concern aboard an aircraft or ship, CDC collects manifest information for those passengers and crew at risk for exposure. This specific manifest information collection differs depending on the communicable disease that is confirmed during air or maritime travel. CDC then uses this passenger and crew manifest information to coordinate with state and local health departments so they can follow-up with residents who live or are currently located in their jurisdiction. In general, state and local health departments are responsible for the contact investigations. In rare cases, CDC may use the manifest data to perform the contact investigation directly. In either case, CDC works with state and local health departments to ensure individuals are contacted and provided appropriate public health follow-up. CDC estimates that for each traveler manifest ordered, airlines require approximately six hours to review the order, search their records, and send those records to CDC.

    Airline and Maritime Conveyance Manifest Orders--Existing 
Information Collection in use without an OMB Control Number--Division 
of Global Migration and Quarantine, National Center for Emerging 
Zoonotic and Infectious Diseases, Centers for Disease Control and 
Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

    Under the Public Health Service Act (42 United States Code 264) and 
under 42 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Sec.  71.32(b) and 42 CFR 
70.2, CDC can order airlines and maritime lines operating conveyances 
arriving from another country or traveling between states to submit a 
record for passengers and crew that CDC believes were exposed to co-
traveler infected with a communicable disease of public health concern.
    Stopping a communicable disease outbreak--whether it is naturally 
occurring or intentionally caused--requires the use of the most rapid 
and effective public health tools available. Basic public health 
practices, such as collaborating with airlines in the identification 
and notification of potentially exposed contacts, are critical tools in 
the fight against the introduction, transmission, and spread of 
communicable diseases in the United States.
    The collection of comprehensive, pertinent contact information 
enables Quarantine Public Health Officers in CDC's Division of Global 
Migration and Quarantine (DGMQ) to notify state and local health 
departments in order for them to make contact with individuals who may 
have been exposed to a contagious person during travel and identify 
appropriate next steps.

of public health concern aboard an aircraft or ship, CDC collects

perform these actions. CDC does not have a specified format for these 
submissions. The total estimated burden to respondents as a result of 
this information collection is 750 hours per year. While CDC has 
included maritime conveyance manifest orders in the public health 
rationale for this information collection, these orders are rare and
