The rule became effective on November 28, 2016 (15 CFR part 1110). No changes are being proposed to the currently approved information collection. The Act prohibits the Secretary of Commerce (Secretary) from disclosing DMF information during the three-year period following an individual’s death (Limited Access DMF), unless the person requesting the information has been certified to access the Limited Access DMF pursuant to certain criteria in a program that the Secretary establishes. The Secretary delegated the authority to carry out Section 203 to the Director of NTIS. To accommodate the requirements of the final rule, NTIS is using both the ACAB Systems Safeguards Attestation Form and the AG or IG Systems Safeguards Attestation Form. The ACAB Systems Safeguards Attestation Form requires an ‘‘Accredited Conformity Assessment Body’’ (ACAB), as defined in the final rule, to attest that a Person seeking certification or a Certified Person seeking renewal of certification has information security systems, facilities and procedures in place to protect the security of the Limited Access DMF, as required under Section 1110.102(a)(2) of the final rule. The ACAB Systems PO 00000 Frm 00029 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Safeguards Attestation Form collects information based on an assessment by the ACAB conducted within three years prior to the date of the Person or Certified Person’s submission of a completed certification statement under Section 1110.101(a) of the final rule. This collection includes specific requirements of the final rule, which the ACAB must certify are satisfied, and the provision of specific information by the ACAB, such as the date of the assessment and the auditing standard(s) used for the assessment. Section 1110.501(a)(2) of the final rule provides that a state or local government office of AG or IG and a Person or Certified Person that is a department or agency of the same state or local government, respectively, are not considered to be owned by a common ‘‘parent’’ entity under Section 1110.501(a)(1)(ii) for the purpose of determining independence, and attestation by the AG or IG is possible. The AG or IG Systems Safeguards Attestation Form is for the use of a state or local government AG or IG to attest on behalf of a state or local government department or agency Person or Certified Person. The AG or IG Systems Safeguards Attestation Form requires the state or local government AG or IG to attest that a Person seeking certification or a Certified Person seeking renewal of certification has information security systems, facilities and procedures in place to protect the security of the Limited Access DMF, as required under Section 1110.102(a)(2) of the final rule.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Abstract

    Title of Information Collection:

(A) ``Limited Access Death Master File (LADMF) Accredited Conformity 
Assessment Body Systems Safeguards Attestation Form'' (ACAB Systems 
Safeguards Attestation Form)
(B) ``Limited Access Death Master File (LADMF) State or Local 
Government Auditor General (AG) or Inspector General (IG) Systems 
Safeguards Attestation Form'' (AG or IG Systems Safeguards Attestation 
Form)
    This notice informs the public that the National Technical 
Information Service (NTIS) is requesting approval for extension of the 
above information collection for use in connection with the final rule 
for the ``Certification Program for Access to the Death Master File.'' 
The final rule was promulgated under Section 203 of the Bipartisan 
Budget Act of 2013, Public Law 113-67 (Act) and published on June 1, 
2016 (81 FR 34882). The rule became effective on November 28, 2016 (15 
CFR part 1110). No changes are being proposed to the currently approved 
information collection.
    The Act prohibits the Secretary of Commerce (Secretary) from 
disclosing DMF information during the three-year period following an 
individual's death (Limited Access DMF), unless the person requesting 
the information has been certified to access the Limited Access DMF 
pursuant to certain criteria in a program that the Secretary 
establishes. The Secretary delegated the authority to carry out Section 
203 to the Director of NTIS.
    To accommodate the requirements of the final rule, NTIS is using 
both the ACAB Systems Safeguards Attestation Form and the AG or IG 
Systems Safeguards Attestation Form.
    The ACAB Systems Safeguards Attestation Form requires an 
``Accredited Conformity Assessment Body'' (ACAB), as defined in the 
final rule, to attest that a Person seeking certification or a 
Certified Person seeking renewal of certification has information 
security systems, facilities and procedures in place to protect the 
security of the Limited Access DMF, as required under Section 
1110.102(a)(2) of the final rule. The ACAB Systems Safeguards 
Attestation Form collects information based on an assessment by the 
ACAB conducted within three years prior to the date of the Person or 
Certified Person's submission of a completed certification statement 
under Section 1110.101(a) of the final rule. This collection includes 
specific requirements of the final rule, which the ACAB must certify 
are satisfied, and the provision of specific information by the ACAB, 
such as the date of the assessment and the auditing standard(s) used 
for the assessment.
    Section 1110.501(a)(2) of the final rule provides that a state or 
local government office of AG or IG and a Person or Certified Person 
that is a department or agency of the same state or local government, 
respectively, are not considered to be owned by a common ``parent'' 
entity under Section 1110.501(a)(1)(ii) for the purpose of determining 
independence, and attestation by the AG or IG is possible. The AG or IG 
Systems Safeguards Attestation Form is for the use of a state or local 
government AG or IG to attest on behalf of a state or local government 
department or agency Person or Certified Person. The AG or IG Systems 
Safeguards Attestation Form requires the state or local government AG 
or IG to attest that a Person seeking certification or a Certified 
Person seeking renewal of certification has information security 
systems, facilities and procedures in place to protect the security of 
the Limited Access DMF, as required under Section 1110.102(a)(2) of the 
final rule. The AG or IG Systems Safeguards Attestation Form collects 
information based on an assessment by the state or local government AG 
or IG conducted within three years prior to the date of the Person or 
Certified Person's submission of a completed certification statement 
under Section 1110.101(a) of the final rule. This collection includes 
specific requirements of the final rule, which the state or local 
government AG or IG must certify are satisfied, and the provision of 
specific information by the state or local government AG or IG, such as 
the date of the assessment.

II. Method of Collection

three hours to complete the form at a rate of approximately $100 per 
hour, for a total additional cost to the public of $9,000 (90 burden 
hours x $100/hour = $9,000). NTIS estimates the total annual cost to 
the public for AG or IG Systems Safeguards Attestation Forms to be 
$24,750 ($15,750 in fees + $9,000 in staff time = $24,750).
    NTIS estimates the total annual cost to the public for both the 
ACAB Systems Safeguards Attestation Forms and the AG or IG Systems 
Safeguards Attestation Forms to be $257,250 ($232,500 for ACAB Systems 
Safeguards Attestation Forms + $24,750 for AG or IG Systems Safeguards 
Attestation Forms).
