SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Information Collection Request Title: The Advisory Committee on Heritable Disorders in Newborns and Children’s Public Health System Assessment Surveys. OMB No. 0906–0014— Revision. Abstract: The purpose of the Public Health System Assessment Surveys is to inform the Advisory Committee on Heritable Disorders in Newborns and Children (Committee) on states’ ability to add newborn screening for particular conditions, including the feasibility, readiness and overall capacity to screen for a new condition. The Committee was established under the Public Health Service Act, 42 U.S.C. 217a: Advisory councils or committees (PDF—215 KB), and Title XI § 1111 (42 U.S.C. 300b–10). The purpose of the Committee is to provide the Secretary with recommendations, advice, and technical information regarding the most appropriate application of technologies, policies, guidelines, and standards for: (a) Effectively reducing morbidity and mortality in newborns and children having, or at risk for, heritable disorders; and (b) enhancing the ability of state and local health agencies to provide for newborn and child screening, counseling, and health care services for newborns and children having, or at risk for, heritable disorders. Specifically, the Committee makes systematic evidence-based recommendations on newborn screening for conditions that have the potential to change the health outcomes for newborns. The Committee tasks an external workgroup to conduct systematic evidence-based reviews for conditions being considered for addition to the Recommended Uniform Screening Panel, and their corresponding newborn screening test(s), confirmatory test(s), and treatment(s). Reviews also include an analysis of the benefits and harms of newborn screening for a selected ADDRESSES: E:\FR\FM\18OCN1.SGM 18OCN1 57679 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 198 / Monday, October 18, 2021 / Notices condition at a population level and an assessment of state public health newborn screening programs’ ability to implement the screening of a new condition. A 60-day notice published in the Federal Register, 86 FR 38726 (July 22, 2021). There were no public comments. Need and Proposed Use of the Information: The surveys are administered by the Committee’s Evidence Review Group to collect data from state newborn screening programs in the United States. The surveys have been developed to capture the following: (1) Readiness of state public health newborn screening programs to expand newborn screening to include the target condition, (2) specific requirements of screening for a condition that could hinder or facilitate implementation in each state, and (3) estimated timeframes needed for each state to complete major milestones toward full implementation of newborn screening for the condition. The following is a summary of proposed changes to the Committee’s Public Health System Assessment Surveys Proposed changes to the ‘‘INITIAL Survey of the Secretary’s Advisory Committee on Heritable Disorders in Newborns and Children’s Public Health System Assessment’’: • Survey title: Æ Current title: ‘‘INITIAL Survey of the Secretary’s Advisory Committee on Heritable Disorders in Newborns and Children’s Public Health System Assessment’’. Æ Proposed change: (strike ‘‘Secretary’s) ‘‘INITIAL Survey of the Advisory Committee on Heritable Disorders in Newborns and Children’s Public Health System Assessment’’ Æ Rationale: Per the charter signed November 10, 2020, the ACHDNC is the correct name for the Committee. • Introductory paragraph: Æ Current introductory paragraph: ‘‘The purpose of this survey is to inform the Secretary of Health and Human Services Advisory Committee on Heritable Disorders in Newborns and Children (Committee) about states’ ability to add newborn screening (NBS) for [condition x] using information gathered from most of the state and territorial NBS programs in the U.S. . . .’’ Æ Proposed change: (strike ‘‘Secretary of Health and Human Services’’) ‘‘The purpose of this survey is to inform the Advisory Committee on Heritable Disorders in Newborns and Children (Committee) about states’ ability to add newborn screening (NBS) for [condition x] using information gathered from most of the state and territorial NBS programs in the U.S. . . .’’ Rationale: Per the charter signed November 10, 2020, the ACHDNC is the correct name of the Committee. • Instructions for question 3 (grammatical edit): Æ Current instructions: ‘‘. . .

If so please describe the steps for shortterm follow and how the plan was developed.’’ Æ Proposed change: (insert hyphen in ‘‘follow-up’’, insert ‘‘-up’’ in the phrase ‘‘short-term follow’’) ‘‘Have you developed a follow-up protocol and/or educational materials for [condition x]? If so, please describe the steps for shortterm follow-up and how the plan was developed. Æ Rationale: Correction of grammatical errors. The data gathered informs the Committee on the following: (1) Feasibility of implementing populationbased screening for the target condition, (2) readiness of state newborn screening programs to adopt screening for the condition, (3) gaps or limitations related to the feasibility or readiness of states to screen for a condition, and (4) areas of technical assistance and resources needed to facilitate screening for conditions with low feasibility or readiness. Likely Respondents: The respondents to the survey will be state and territorial newborn screening programs. 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.
