Background and Brief Description The Public Health Services Act (42 U.S.C. 241) authorizes CDC to disseminate nationally notifiable condition information. The Nationally Notifiable Diseases Surveillance System (NNDSS) is based on data collected at the state, territorial and local levels as a result of legislation and regulations in those jurisdictions that require health care providers, medical laboratories, and other entities to submit healthrelated data on reportable conditions to public health departments. These reportable conditions, which include infectious and non-infectious diseases, vary by jurisdiction depending upon each jurisdiction’s health priorities and needs.

This Revision includes requests for approval to receive: (1) Case notification data from the Federated States of Micronesia, the Republic of the Marshall Islands, and the Republic of Palau (independent nations that operate under a Compact of Free Association nationally notifiable or be placed under standardized surveillance, will not increase the burden since most case notifications are submitted from already existing databases. The burden on the states and cities is estimated to be 10 hours per response and the burden on the territories is estimated to be 5 hours per response. The total burden will increase because of the request to receive case notification data from the freely associated states. The burden on the freely associated states is estimated to be the same as the burden for the territories, 5 hours per response. This is because the methods and systems that the freely associated states use to send case notification data to CDC are nearly the same as the territories. There will be no costs to respondents other than their time. The estimated annual burden is 29,120 hours. with the United States of America that are commonly referred to as ‘‘freely associated states’’); (2) case notification data for histoplasmosis which is now under standardized surveillance; and (3) case notification data for all enteric Escherichia coli infections should any of them become nationally notifiable or be placed under standardized surveillance. CDC already has approval to receive case notification data for Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC) which is nationally notifiable. Although this Revision includes case notifications that were not part of the last NNDSS Revision, the estimate of the average burden per response based on the burden tables from all of the consolidated applications for states, cities, and territories has not changed.

Number 0920-0728, expires 1/31/2019)--Revision--Center for 
Surveillance, Epidemiology and Laboratory Services, CSELS), Centers for 
Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

    The Public Health Services Act (42 U.S.C. 241) authorizes CDC to 
disseminate nationally notifiable condition information. The Nationally 
Notifiable Diseases Surveillance System (NNDSS) is based on data 
collected at the state, territorial and local levels as a result of 
legislation and regulations in those jurisdictions that require health 
care providers, medical laboratories, and other entities to submit 
health-related data on reportable conditions to public health 
departments. These reportable conditions, which include infectious and 
non-infectious diseases, vary by jurisdiction depending upon each 
jurisdiction's health priorities and needs. Infectious disease agents 
and environmental hazards often cross geographical boundaries. Each 
year, the

[[Page 93940]]

Council of State and Territorial Disease Epidemiologists (CSTE), 
supported by CDC, determines which reportable conditions should be 
designated nationally notifiable and voluntarily submitted to CDC so 
that information can be shared across jurisdictional boundaries and 
both surveillance and prevention and control activities can be 
coordinated at regional and national levels.
    CDC requests a three-year approval for a Revision for the National 
Notifiable Diseases Surveillance System (NNDSS), OMB Control No. 0920-
0728, Expiration Date 01/31/2019. This Revision includes requests for 
approval to receive: (1) Case notification data from the Federated 
States of Micronesia, the Republic of the Marshall Islands, and the 
Republic of Palau (independent nations that operate under a Compact of 
Free Association with the United States of America that are commonly 
referred to as ``freely associated states''); (2) case notification 
data for histoplasmosis which is now under standardized surveillance; 
and (3) case notification data for all enteric Escherichia coli 
infections should any of them become nationally notifiable or be placed 
under standardized surveillance. CDC already has approval to receive 
case notification data for Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli 
(STEC) which is nationally notifiable.
    Although this Revision includes case notifications that were not 
part of the last NNDSS Revision, the estimate of the average burden per 
response based on the burden tables from all of the consolidated 
applications for states, cities, and territories has not changed. The 
addition of new diseases and conditions, should they become nationally 
notifiable or be placed under standardized surveillance, will not 
increase the burden since most case notifications are submitted from 
already existing databases. The burden on the states and cities is 
estimated to be 10 hours per response and the burden on the territories 
is estimated to be 5 hours per response. The total burden will increase 
because of the request to receive case notification data from the 
freely associated states. The burden on the freely associated states is 
estimated to be the same as the burden for the territories, 5 hours per 
response. This is because the methods and systems that the freely 
associated states use to send case notification data to CDC are nearly 
the same as the territories.
    There will be no costs to respondents other than their time. The 
estimated annual burden is 29,120 hours.
