HHS/CDC RIN: 0920-AA34 Publication ID: Fall 2010 
Title: Public Health Security and Bioterrorism Preparedness and Response Act of 2002; Biennial Review and Republication of the Select Agent and Toxin List 
Abstract: By statute, the Secretary of Health and Human Services has broad authority to prevent introduction, transmission, and spread of communicable diseases from foreign countries into the United States and from one State or possession into another. Communicable disease regulations are divided into two parts: Part 71 pertaining to foreign arrivals and part 70 pertaining to interstate matters. This rule (42 CFR Part 71) will update and improve CDC’s response to both global and domestic disease threats by creating a multi-tiered illness detection and response process thus substantially enhancing the public health system’s ability to slow the introduction, transmission, and spread of communicable disease. The final rule focuses primarily on requirements relating to the reporting of deaths and illnesses onboard aircrafts and ships, and the collection of specific traveler contact information for the purpose of CDC contacting travelers in the event of an exposure to a communicable disease.
