SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: When submitting comments or requesting information, please include the information request collection title for reference. Information Collection Request Title: Data System for Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network OMB No. 0915–0157–Extension. Abstract: Section 372 of the Public Health Service (PHS) Act (42 U.S.C. 274) requires that the Secretary, by contract, provide for the establishment and operation of an Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network (OPTN). This is a request for an extension of the current OPTN data collection forms associated with an individual’s clinical characteristics at the time of registration, transplant, and follow-up after the transplant. Data are collected from transplant hospitals, organ procurement organizations, and histocompatibility laboratories. The information is used to indicate the disease severity of transplant candidates, to monitor compliance of member organizations with OPTN rules and requirements, and to report periodically on the clinical and scientific status of organ donation and transplantation in this country. Need and Proposed Use of the Information: Data are used to develop transplant, donation, and allocation policies, to determine whether institutional members are complying with policy, to determine memberspecific performance, to ensure patient safety, and to fulfill the requirements of the OPTN Final Rule. The practical utility of the data collection is further enhanced by requirements that the OPTN data must be made available, Number of respondents jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES Form name Deceased Donor Registration ..............................................

Burden hours have increased since the last reporting period due to an increase in the number of transplant programs for some organs and the overall increase in transplant surgeries at existing programs as well. An increased number of transplants results in an increasing number of forms that require completion while the amount of time it takes to complete the forms remains the same. Likely Respondents: Transplant programs, organ procurement organizations, and histocompatibility laboratories. Burden Statement: Burden, in this context, means the time expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, disclose or provide the information requested. This includes the time needed to review instructions; to develop, acquire, install and utilize technology and systems for the purpose of collecting, validating and verifying information, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information; to train personnel and to be able to respond to a collection of information; to search data sources; to complete and review the collection of information; and to transmit or otherwise disclose the information.

    Information Collection Request Title: Data System for Organ 
Procurement and Transplantation Network OMB No. 0915-0157-Extension.
    Abstract: Section 372 of the Public Health Service (PHS) Act (42 
U.S.C. 274) requires that the Secretary, by contract, provide for the 
establishment and operation of an Organ Procurement and Transplantation 
Network (OPTN). This is a request for an extension of the current OPTN 
data collection forms associated with an individual's clinical 
characteristics at the time of registration, transplant, and follow-up 
after the transplant. Data are collected from transplant hospitals, 
organ procurement organizations, and histocompatibility laboratories. 
The information is used to indicate the disease severity of transplant 
candidates, to monitor compliance of member organizations with OPTN 
rules and requirements, and to report periodically on the clinical and 
scientific status of organ donation and transplantation in this 
country.
    Need and Proposed Use of the Information: Data are used to develop 
transplant, donation, and allocation policies, to determine whether 
institutional members are complying with policy, to determine member-
specific performance, to ensure patient safety, and to fulfill the 
requirements of the OPTN Final Rule. The practical utility of the data 
collection is further enhanced by requirements that the OPTN data must 
be made available, consistent with applicable laws, for use by OPTN 
members, the Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients, the 
Department of Health and Human Services, and members of the public for 
evaluation, research, patient information, and other important 
purposes.
    Burden hours have increased since the last reporting period due to 
an increase in the number of transplant programs for some organs and 
the overall increase in transplant surgeries at existing programs as 
well. An increased number of transplants results in an increasing 
number of forms that require completion while the amount of time it 
takes to complete the forms remains the same.

information, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and 
providing information; to train personnel and to be able to respond to 
a collection of information; to search data sources; to complete and 
review the collection of information; and to transmit or otherwise 
disclose the information. The total annual burden hours estimated for 
this ICR are summarized in the table below.
