Abstract of Proposed Collection: This electronic collection records medical information necessary to determine whether visa applicants have medical conditions affecting the applicant’s eligibility for a visa. Methodology: Approved panel physicians will be granted access to an eMedical system by the Department of State, to conduct medical examinations for visa eligibility determinations. During the initial rollout, some immigrant visa applicants with a completed and submitted DS–260, Application for Immigrant Visa and Alien Registration will have their medical exam results submitted to the Department via the eMedical system. The panel physician will input the exam information into the eMedical portal and it will be transmitted to the Department for visa adjudication and retained in the Department’s systems. The Department anticipates a full rollout of the electronic medical report by the end of 2018. During the transition to eMedical, some applicants’ medical exams will be completed via paper forms. In the paper version of the forms (OMB 1405–0113), the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) usually provides the results of visa applicant medical examinations to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). As the Department transitions to the electronic environment, the information from the medical examinations will be provided directly to CDC and DHS for uses relevant to their respective roles in the admission process and statutory VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:53 Dec 12, 2017 Jkt 244001 missions.

ACTION: Notice. The FAA has determined that the minimum random drug and alcohol testing percentage rates for the period January 1, 2018, through December 31, 2018, will remain at 25 percent of safety-sensitive employees for random drug testing and 10 percent of safetysensitive employees for random alcohol testing.

Discussion: Pursuant to 14 CFR 120 .109(b), the FAA Administrator’s decision on whether to change the minimum annual random drng testing rate is based on the reported random drug test positive rate for the entire aviation industry. If the reported random drug test positive rate is less than 1.00%, the Administrator may continue the minimum random drug testing rate at 25%. In 2016, the random drug test positive rate was 0.610%. Therefore, the minimum random drug testing rate will remain at 25% for calendar year 2018.
