SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In compliance with 44 U.S.C. 3507, FDA has submitted the following proposed collection of information to OMB for review and clearance. Notice. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA or we) is announcing that a proposed collection of information has been submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review and clearance under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. DATES: Fax written comments on the collection of information by December 6, 2019. ADDRESSES: To ensure that comments on the information collection are received, OMB recommends that written comments be faxed to the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, OMB, Attn: FDA Desk Officer, Fax: 202– SUMMARY: OMB Control Number 0910–0298— Extension Under section 409(a) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act) (21 U.S.C. 348(a)), the use of a food additive is deemed unsafe unless one of the following is applicable: (1) It conforms to an exemption for investigational use under section 409(j) of the FD&C Act; (2) it conforms to the terms of a regulation prescribing its use; or (3) in the case of a food additive that meets the definition of a food-contact substance in section 409(h)(6) of the FD&C Act, there is either a regulation authorizing its use in accordance with section 409(a)(3)(A) or an effective notification in accordance with section 409(a)(3)(B). The regulations in § 170.39 (21 CFR 170.39) established a process that provides the manufacturer with an opportunity to demonstrate that the likelihood or extent of migration to food of a substance used in a food-contact article is so trivial that the use need not be the subject of a food additive listing regulation or an effective notification. 59831 The Agency has established two thresholds for the regulation of substances used in food-contact articles. The first exempts those substances used in food-contact articles where the resulting dietary concentration would be at or below 0.5 part per billion. The second exempts regulated direct food additives for use in food-contact articles where the resulting dietary exposure is 1 percent or less of the acceptable daily intake for these substances. To determine whether the intended use of a substance in a food-contact article meets the threshold criteria, certain information specified in § 170.39(c) must be submitted to FDA. This information includes the following components: (1) The chemical composition of the substance for which the request is made; (2) detailed information on the conditions of use of the substance; (3) a clear statement of the basis for the request for exemption from regulation as a food additive; (4) data that will enable FDA to estimate the daily dietary concentration resulting from the proposed use of the substance; (5) results of a literature search for toxicological data on the substance and its impurities; and (6) information on the environmental impact that would result from the proposed use. We use this information to determine whether the food-contact substance meets the threshold criteria. Description of Respondents: Respondents to this information collection are individual manufacturers and suppliers of substances used in food-contact articles (i.e., food packaging and food processing equipment) or of the articles themselves. In the Federal Register of June 21, 2019 (84 FR 29209), we published a 60day notice requesting public comment on the proposed collection of information. No comments were received. We estimate the burden of this collection of information as follows: TABLE 1—ESTIMATED ANNUAL REPORTING BURDEN 1 21 CFR 170.39 Number of respondents Number of responses per respondent Total annual responses Average burden per response Total hours Threshold of regulation for substances used in food-contact articles ....................................................................... 7 1 7 48 336 1 There are no capital costs or operating and maintenance costs associated with this collection of information. Based on a review of the information collection since our last request for OMB approval, we have made no adjustments. We estimate that approximately seven requests per year VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:43 Nov 05, 2019 Jkt 250001 will be submitted under the threshold of regulation exemption process of § 170.39, for a total of 336 hours. In the Federal Register of June 21, 2019, we estimated four requests per year. In PO 00000 Frm 00068 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 reconsideration of the two to three requests that were received but did not become effective, we retain our previous estimate of seven requests per year, with E:\FR\FM\06NON1.SGM 06NON1

respondents to the previously approved information collection, National 
Human Trafficking Training and Technical Assistance Center (NHTTAC) 
Evaluation Package (OMB #0970-0519, expiration 10/31/2021). This will 
increase the estimated burden hours from 689 hours to 9,495 hours. In 
addition, the previously approved SOAR Online participant feedback form 
has been restructured into a long and a short form to reduce burden for 
information collected on SOAR Online training participants outside of 
the NHTTAC learning management system. There are no changes requested 
to the items on any forms.

DATES: ACF is requesting that OMB approve this request under procedures 
for emergency processing by December 20, 2019.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

    Description: ACF is requesting that OMB grant a 180 day approval 
for this request under procedures for expedited processing by December 
20, 2019. A request for review under normal procedures will be 
submitted within 180 days of the approval for this request. These 
changes are requested due to the passage of the Stop, Observe, Ask, and 
Respond to Health and Wellness Act of 2018 (Pub. L. 115-398) which 
expands the SOAR to Health and Wellness Training Program. To meet the 
provisions of the SOAR to Health and Wellness Act of 2018, OTIP's 
NHTTAC must expand the administration of SOAR nationwide.
    The NHTTAC delivers training and technical assistance (T/TA) to 
inform and deliver a public health response to trafficking. In applying 
a public health approach, NHTTAC holistically builds the capacity of 
communities to identify and respond to the complex needs of all 
individuals who have been trafficked and address the root causes that 
put individuals, families, and communities at risk of trafficking. This 
will ultimately help improve the availability and delivery of 
coordinated and trauma-informed services before, during, and after an 
individual's trafficking exploitation, regardless of their age, gender, 
nationality, sexual orientation, or type of exploitation.
    NHTTAC hosts a variety of services, programs, and facilitated 
sessions to improve service provision to individuals who have been 
trafficked or who are at risk of trafficking, including The Human 
Trafficking Leadership Academy (HTLA); the Survivor Fellowship Program; 
the NHTTAC Call Center; both short-term and specialized T/TA requests 
(requests that take less than 3 hours or 3 or more hours to fulfill, 
respectively); OTIP-funded grantees; and information through NHTTAC's 
website, resources, and materials about trafficking.
    Respondents: Individuals and organizations such as NHTTAC 
consultants, training and technical assistance participants, Human 
Trafficking Leadership Academy program participants, Survivor fellows, 
OTIP grantees, visitors to the NHTTAC website, NHTTAC-supported 
conference and meeting attendees, members of the National Advisory 
Council, and scholarship applicants.
    Annual Burden Estimates: The following instruments have an 
increased number of respondents. The number of respondents for all 
other previously approved instruments remains the same. The increase in 
respondents increases the overall burden under OMB #0970-0519 from 689 
hours to 9,495 hours.
