Needs and Uses: The information collection requirement is necessary to ensure DoD personnel deployed in support of Operation UNITED ASSISTANCE are promptly evaluated for possible exposure(s) to the Ebola virus during deployment to, and within 12 hours prior to departing from, an Ebola outbreak country or region. Ebola is a Quarantinable Communicable Disease as named in Executive Order 13295 and supported by several DoD regulations and Federal laws. This information will be used by DoD medical and public health officials to (1) ensure Ebola exposure risk is evaluated, (2) proper prevention and quarantine ADDRESSES: PO 00000 Frm 00021 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 9990 efforts are implemented, (3) appropriate medical care is provided, (4) medical surveillance programs are robust and (5) the spread of Ebola beyond area of concern is minimized. The DoD has consulted with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Department of State, the Agency for International Development, and several Defense Agencies regarding disease control efforts and health surveillance in response to the public health emergency in West Africa and worldwide. DoD has also specifically discussed these new information collections with representatives of the various Military Services, representing deploying military members who have participated in the development of the content of these forms. Affected Public: Individuals or Households. Annual Burden Hours: 480. Number of Respondents: 1,200. Responses per Respondent: 2. Annual Responses: 2400. Average Burden per Response: 12 minutes.

Using the DD2990 and DD2991, information will be collected from respondents during deployment and just prior to redeployment (return from deployment). This information will provide for health surveillance while deployed, removal from duty if representing a health risk to self or others, apprehension and detention, or conditional release of individuals to prevent the introduction, transmission, or spread of suspected communicable diseases, pursuant to section 361(b) of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. 264), UCMJ, DoD Directive 6490.02E, DoD Instruction 6490.03, 5 CFR 339.301. The information will also be collected in order to identify any health concerns and to refer individuals for additional assessment and/or care. The overall intent is to protect the health of the individual and public from EBV. This information will also be included in deployer’s medical records. Dated: March 9, 2018.

Summary of Information Collection

    Under the U.S.-International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Additional 
Protocol, the United States is required to declare a wide range of 
public and private nuclear-related activities to the IAEA and 
potentially provide access to IAEA inspectors for verification 
purposes. The U.S.-IAEA Additional Protocol permits the United States 
unilaterally to declare exclusions from inspection requirements for 
activities with direct national security significance.

[[Page 11188]]

    The DFARS clause at 252.204-7010, as prescribed at DFARS 204.470-3, 
is included in contracts for research and development or major defense 
acquisition programs involving fissionable materials (e.g., uranium, 
plutonium, neptunium, thorium, americium); other radiological source 
materials; or technologies directly related to nuclear power 
production, including nuclear or radiological waste materials.
    The clause requires a contractor to provide written notification to 
the applicable DoD program manager and a copy of the notification to 
the contracting officer if the contractor is required to report its 
activities under the U.S.-IAEA Additional Protocol. Upon such 
notification, DoD will determine if access may be granted to IAEA 
inspectors, or if a national security exclusion should be applied.
