ACTION: Submission for OMB review and comments request. AGENCY: The Export-Import Bank of the United States (EXIM), as a part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, invites the general public and other Federal Agencies to comment on the proposed information collection, as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. This collection of information is necessary to determine eligibility of the export sales for insurance coverage. The Report of Premiums Payable for Financial Institutions Only is used to determine the eligibility of the shipment(s) and to calculate the premium due to Ex-Im Bank for its support of the shipment(s) under its insurance program. Export-Import Bank customers will be able to submit this form on paper or electronically. By neutralizing the effect of export credit support offered by foreign governments and by absorbing credit risks that the private sector will not accept, EXIM enables U.S. exporters to compete fairly in foreign markets on the basis of price and product. Under the Working Capital Guarantee Program, EXIM provides repayment guarantees to lenders on secured, short-term working capital loans made to qualified exporters. The guarantee may be approved for a single loan or a revolving line of credit. In the event that a buyer defaults on a transaction insured by EXIM, the insured exporter or lender may seek payment by the submission of a claim. DATES: Comments must be received on or before December 18, 2017 to be assured of consideration.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    The Patient Safety and Quality Improvement Act of 2005, 42 U.S.C. 
299b-21 to b-26, (Patient Safety Act) and the related Patient Safety 
and Quality Improvement Final Rule, 42 CFR part 3 (Patient Safety 
Rule), published in the Federal Register on November 21, 2008, 73 FR 
70732-70814, establish a framework by which hospitals, doctors, and 
other health care providers may voluntarily report information to 
Patient Safety Organizations (PSOs), on a privileged and confidential 
basis, for the aggregation and analysis of patient safety events.
    The Patient Safety Act authorizes the listing of PSOs, which are 
entities or component organizations whose mission and primary activity 
are to conduct activities to improve patient safety and the quality of 
health care delivery.
    HHS issued the Patient Safety Rule to implement the Patient Safety 
Act. AHRQ administers the provisions of the Patient Safety Act and 
Patient Safety Rule relating to the listing and operation of PSOs. The 
Patient Safety Rule authorizes AHRQ to list as a PSO an entity that 
attests that it meets the statutory and regulatory requirements for 
listing. A PSO can be ``delisted'' if it is found to no longer meet the 
requirements of the Patient Safety Act and Patient Safety Rule, when a 
PSO chooses to voluntarily relinquish its status as a PSO for any 
reason, or when a PSO's listing expires. Section 3.108(d) of the 
Patient Safety Rule requires AHRQ to provide public notice when it 
removes an organization from the list of federally approved PSOs.
    AHRQ has accepted a notification from the American College of 
Physicians Patient Safety Organization, a component entity of American 
College of Physicians, PSO number P0128, to voluntarily relinquish its 
status as a PSO. Accordingly, the American College of Physicians 
Patient Safety Organization was delisted effective at 12:00 Midnight ET 
(2400) on October 10, 2017.
    The American College of Physicians Patient Safety Organization has 
patient safety work product (PSWP) in its possession. The PSO will meet 
the requirements of section 3.108(c)(2)(i) of the Patient Safety Rule 
regarding notification to providers that have reported to the PSO and 
of section 3.108(c)(2)(ii) regarding disposition of PSWP consistent 
with section 3.108(b)(3). According to section 3.108(b)(3) of the 
Patient Safety Rule, the PSO has 90 days from the effective date of 
delisting and revocation to complete the disposition of PSWP that is 
currently in the PSO's possession.
    More information on PSOs can be obtained through AHRQ's PSO Web 
site at http://www.pso.ahrq.gov.
