Download as PDF 93940 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 246 / Thursday, December 22, 2016 / Notices 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 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.

lip products (such as lipsticks, lip glosses, and lip liners) and 
externally applied cosmetics (such as eye shadows, blushes, shampoos, 
and body lotions) marketed in the United States. FDA has concluded that 
a recommended maximum level of 10 ppm for lead as an impurity in 
cosmetic lip products and externally applied cosmetics would not pose a 
health risk. We consider the recommended maximum lead level to be 
achievable with the use of good manufacturing practices. Additionally, 
the recommended maximum level is consistent with the 10 ppm maximum 
lead level for similar products recommended by other countries. This 
draft guidance does not apply to topically applied products that are 
classified as drugs or to hair dyes that contain lead acetate as an

    This draft guidance is being issued consistent with FDA's good 
guidance practices regulation (21 CFR 10.115). The draft guidance, when
