Background Information on the RoC
This notice is in accordance with the
Public Health Service Act Section
301(b)(4). The Report on Carcinogens
(RoC) is a Congressionally mandated
document that identifies and discusses
agents, substances, mixtures, or
exposure circumstances (collectively
referred to as ‘‘substances’’) that may
pose a hazard to human health because
of their carcinogenicity. Substances are
listed in the report as either known or
reasonably anticipated to be human
carcinogens. The listing of a substance
in the RoC indicates a potential hazard;
it does not establish the exposure
conditions that pose a cancer hazard to
individuals in their daily lives. For each
listed substance, the RoC provides
information from cancer studies that
support the listing, as well as
information about potential sources of
exposure and current federal regulations
to limit exposures. Each edition of the
RoC is cumulative, that is, it lists newly
reviewed substances in addition to
substances listed in the previous
edition. Information about the RoC is
available on the RoC website (http://
ntp.niehs.nih.gov/go/roc) or by
contacting Dr. Lunn (see
ADDRESSES
above).
The National Institute of
Environmental Health Science, National
Toxicology Program (NTP) prepares the
RoC on behalf of the Secretary of Health
and Human Services. For the 15th RoC,
NTP followed an established, multi-step
process with multiple opportunities for
public input, and used established
criteria to evaluate the scientific
evidence on each candidate substance
under review (http://ntp.niehs.nih.gov/
go/rocprocess).
New Listings in the 15th RoC
The 15th RoC contains 256 listings,
some of which consist of a class of
structurally related chemicals or agents.
There are eight new listings in this
edition. The new listing in the category
of known to be a human carcinogen is
Helicobacter pylori (chronic infection).
Seven of the new listings are in the
category of reasonably anticipated to be
a human carcinogen: Antimony trioxide
and six haloacetic acids found as water
disinfection by-products, including
bromochloroacetic acid,
bromodichloroacetic acid,
chlorodibromoacetic acid,
dibromoacetic acid, dichloroacetic acid,
and tribromoacetic acid.

TSA is specifically
empowered to assess threats to
transportation;

develop policies,
strategies, and plans for dealing with
threats to transportation;

On November 30, 2021, OMB
approved TSA’s request for an
emergency approval of this information
collection that covers both mandatory
reporting and voluntary reporting of
information. The OMB approval
allowed for the institution of mandatory
reporting requirements and collection of
information voluntarily submitted. See
ICR Reference Number: 202111–1652–
003. TSA is now seeking renewal of this
information collection for the maximum
three-year approval period.
The request for a new collection was
necessary as a result of actions TSA took
to address the ongoing and escalating
cybersecurity threat to surface
transportation and associated
infrastructure. On December 2, 2021,
TSA issued Security Directive (SD)
1580–2021–01 or SD1582–2021–02
mandating TSA-specified owner/
operators of ‘‘higher risk’’ railroads and
rail transit systems, respectively, to
implement an array of cybersecurity
measures to prevent disruption and
degradation to their infrastructure.
7
The
scope of these SDs align with the
railroads and rail transit systems
required to report significant security
incidents to TSA under 49 CFR
1570.203.
On that same date, TSA also issued an
‘‘information circular’’ (IC), which
contains non-binding recommendations
with the same measures for railroad
owner/operators, public transportation
agencies, rail transit system owner/
operators, and certain over-the-road bus
owner/operators not specifically
covered under SDs 1580–2021–01 or
1582–2021–02. The requirements in the
SDs and the recommendations in the IC
allow TSA to execute its security
responsibilities within the surface
transportation industry, through
awareness of potential security
incidents and suspicious activities. The
SDs require, and the IC recommends,
the following security measures:
1. Designate a Cybersecurity
Coordinator who is available to TSA 24/
7 to coordinate cybersecurity practices
and address any incidents that arise;
2. Report cybersecurity incidents to
the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure
Security Agency (CISA);
3. Develop a cybersecurity incident
response plan; and
4. Complete a cybersecurity
vulnerability assessment to address
cybersecurity gaps using the form
provided by TSA.
TSA, in conjunction with federal
partners such as CISA, will use the
reports of cybersecurity incidents to
evaluate and respond to imminent and
evolving cybersecurity incidents and
threats as they occur, and as a basis for
creating new cybersecurity policy
moving forward. This monitoring will
allow TSA and federal partners to take
action to contain threats, take mitigating
action, and issue timely warnings to
similarly-situated entities against
further spread of the threat. TSA and its
federal partners will also use the
information to inform timely
modifications to cybersecurity
requirements to improve transportation
security and national economic security.
TSA will use the collection of
information to ensure compliance with
TSA’s cybersecurity measures required
by the SDs and the recommendations
under the IC.
Table 1 provides more detail on the
measures included in the SDs and IC.

potential cybersecurity incidents to CISA within 24 hours of identification of a cybersecurity incident. The infor-
mation provided to CISA pursuant to the SD is shared with TSA and may also be shared with the National Re-
sponse Center and other agencies as appropriate. Conversely, information provided to TSA pursuant to this di-
rective is shared with CISA and may also be shared with the National Response Center and other agencies as
appropriate. Cybersecurity incident reports are submitted using the CISA Reporting System form at: https://us-
cert.cisa.gov/forms/report. Incident reports can also be reported by calling (888) 282–0870. CISA has an ap-
proved information collection for cybersecurity incident reporting. See OMB control number 1670–0037.
Cybersecurity Incident Re-
sponse Plan. Owner/Operators are required or recommended, as applicable, to develop and adopt a Cybersecurity Incident
Response Plan to reduce the risk of operational disruption should their Information Technology and/or Oper-
ational Technology systems be affected by a cybersecurity incident. Owner/operators must provide or are rec-
ommended to provide, as applicable, evidence of compliance to TSA upon request.

Title Security measure
Cybersecurity Vulnerability
Assessment. Owner/Operators are required or recommended, as applicable, to assess their current cybersecurity posture con-
sistent with the functions and categories found in the National Institute of Standards and Technology Cyberse-
curity Guidance Framework. The assessment and identification of cybersecurity gaps must or should, as appli-
cable, be completed using a using a form provided by TSA. As part of this assessment, the owners and opera-
tors must/may identify remediation measures to address the vulnerabilities and cybersecurity gaps identified
during the assessment and a plan for implementing the identified measures if necessary, and report the results
to TSA.
TSA will use the results of the assessments to make a global assessment of the cyber risk posture of the indus-
try and possibly impose additional security measures as appropriate or necessary. TSA may also use the infor-
mation, with company-specific data redacted, for TSA’s intelligence-derived reports. TSA and CISA may also
use information submitted for vulnerability identification, trend analysis, or to generate anonymized indicators of
compromise or other cybersecurity products to prevent other cybersecurity incidents. All reported information
will be protected in a manner appropriate for the sensitivity and criticality of the information.
Certification of Completion of SD
Requirements
The SDs and IC took effect on
December 31, 2021. Within 7 days of the
effective date of the SDs, owner/
operators must provide their designated
Cybersecurity Coordinator information;
within 90 days of the effective date of
the SDs owner/operators must complete
the Vulnerability Assessment (TSA
form); within 180 days of the effective
date of the SDs, owner/operators must
adopt a Cybersecurity Incident
Response Plan; within 7 days of
completing the Cybersecurity Incident
Response Plan requirement, owner/
operators must submit a statement to
TSA via email certifying that the owner/
operator has completed this requirement
of the SD. Owner/Operators can
complete and submit the required
information via email or other electronic
options provided by TSA.
Documentation of compliance must be
provided upon request. As the measures
in the IC are voluntary, the IC does not
require owner/operators to report on
their compliance.
Portions of the responses that are
deemed Sensitive Security Information
(SSI) are protected in accordance with
procedures meeting the transmission,
handling, and storage requirements of
SSI set forth in 49 CFR part 15 and
1520.
TSA estimates this collection applies
to 457 railroad owner/operators, 115
public transportation agencies and rail
transit system owner/operators, and 209
over-the-road bus owner/operators, for a
total of 781 respondents. TSA estimates
the total hour burden for this collection
to be 96,163 hours.
