Pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1981 (44 U.S.C. chapter 35), the Peace Corps has submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) a request for re-instatement of OMB Control Number 0420-0510, the Peace Corps Health Status Review form (PC-1789S).

The Health Status Review form is used to review the medical history of individual applicants, and currently serving Volunteers. The results of these examinations are used to ensure that applicants for Volunteer service will, with reasonable accommodation, be able to serve in the Peace Corps without jeopardizing their health. The purpose of this notice is to allow for public comment on whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Peace Corps, including whether their information will have practical use; the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; ways to enhance the quality, utility and clarity of the information to be collected; and, ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of automated collection techniques, when appropriate, and other forms of information technology. A copy of the information collection may be obtained from Ms. Emilie Deady, Peace Corps, Office of Volunteer Support, 1111 20th Street, NW., Room 5205, Washington, DC 20526.
