The Commission received serval petitions for reconsideration of the MF–II Report and Order, including one asking it to reconsider the decision to use existing FCC Form 477 data as the basis for determining the map of areas presumptively eligible for MF–II support, and offering an industry consensus proposal asking the Commission to undertake a new, onetime data collection with specified data parameters tailored to MF–II to determine the areas in which there is deployment of qualified Long Term Evolution (LTE). On August 4, 2017, the Commission released an Order on Reconsideration and Second Report and Order (FCC 17–102) in which it, among other things, reconsidered its earlier decision to use FCC Form 477 data to compile the map of areas presumptively eligible for MF–II support. The Commission decided it would instead conduct a new, one-time data collection of 4G LTE coverage data that will be used for this purpose, concluding that for purposes of implementing MF–II expeditiously, this approach will provide the Commission and interested parties with the best available starting point for the challenge process and should result in fewer and more narrowly-focused challenges regarding representations of coverage. Only those providers that have previously reported 4G LTE coverage in FCC Form 477 and have qualified 4G LTE coverage (defined by download speeds of 5 Mbps at the cell edge with 80 percent probability and a 30 percent loading factor) will be required to submit data under this new, one-time information collection. Such providers will be required to file propagation maps and model details with the Commission indicating their current 4G LTE coverage in accordance with a public notice that will be issued in advance of the start of period within which providers must make their filings that provides instructions for how to file the data submission, including a data specification, formatting information, and any other technical parameters that may be necessary for such filings. The Commission will use the new coverage data, in conjunction with subsidy data available from the Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC), to VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:05 Oct 12, 2017 Jkt 244001 create the map of areas presumptively eligible for MF–II support.

Proposed Project Pulmonary Function Testing Course Approval Program (OMB Control Number 0920–0138, Expired 4/30/ 2017)—Reinstatement with Change— National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Background and Brief Description NIOSH has the responsibility under the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s Cotton Dust Standard, 29 CFR 1920.1043, for approving courses to train technicians to perform pulmonary function testing in the cotton industry. Successful completion of a NIOSH-approved course is mandatory under this Standard. In addition, regulations at 42 CFR 37.95(a) specify that persons administering spirometry tests for the national Coal Workers’ Health Surveillance Program must successfully complete a NIOSHapproved spirometry training course and maintain a valid certificate by periodically completing NIOSHapproved spirometry refresher training courses. Also, 29 CFR 1910.1053(i)(2)(iv), 29 CFR 1910.1053(i)(3), 29 CFR 1926.1153(h)(2)(iv) and 29 CFR 1926.1153(h)(3) specify that pulmonary function tests for initial and periodic examinations in general industry and construction, performed under the respirable crystalline silica standard should be administered by a spirometry technician with a current certificate from a NIOSH-approved spirometry course. NIOSH is requesting a three-year approval. To carry out its responsibility, NIOSH maintains a Pulmonary Function Training Course Approval Program. The program consists of an application submitted by potential sponsors (universities, hospitals, and private consulting firms) who seek NIOSH approval to conduct courses, and if approved, notification to NIOSH of any course or faculty changes during the approval period, which is limited to five years. The primary focus of this program is to verify that each course sponsor maintains faculty expertise and curriculum content that supports the training of technicians to perform spirometry testing under current professional clinical-practice guidelines. NIOSH reviews the application form and added materials, including an agenda, curriculum vitae, and course materials to determine if the applicant has developed a program that adheres to the criteria required in the Standard.
