NOTICE OF REVIEW AND STATEMENT OF CONTINUATION
Concise explanation of the particular statutory provisions under which the rule is enacted and how these provisions authorize or require the rule:
This rule is enacted under authority of Section 26-5-3 (System for detecting and monitoring diseases established by department). This section authorizes the Utah Department of Health to develop and maintain a system for detecting and monitoring chronic diseases within the state and to investigate and determine the epidemiology of those conditions, which contributed to preventable and premature sickness, or both, and to death and disability.
Summary of written comments received during and since the last five-year review of the rule from interested persons supporting or opposing the rule:
No written comments received from interested persons either in support or opposition of the rule.
Reasoned justification for continuation of the rule, including reasons why the agency disagrees with comments in opposition to the rule, if any:
Cancers constitute a leading cause of morbidity and mortality in Utah and, therefore, pose an important risk to the public health. Through the routine reporting of cancer cases, trends in cancer incidence and mortality can be monitored and prevention and control measures evaluated and implemented. The Utah Cancer Registry on behalf of the Utah Department of Health manages cancer records. This Cancer Reporting Rule specifies the reporting requirements for the cases of cancer to the Utah Cancer Registry. Therefore, this rule should be continued.
