Reducing the number of foodborne illness outbreaks requires identification and understanding of the environmental factors that cause these outbreaks. CDC has developed the National Voluntary Environmental Assessment Information System (NVEAIS) to obtain data from environmental assessments routinely conducted by food safety program officials in response to foodborne illness outbreaks will be reported. The data reported will provide timely information on the causes of outbreaks, including environmental factors associated with outbreaks. The goals of this Revision are, 1) to have NVEAIS be renamed as the National Environmental Assessment Reporting System (NEARS), 2) increase the requested burden hours based on the addition of new e-learning materials for respondents (Attachment 5, Section A.12 and A.15), 3) to introduce a minor change to a data collection form (Attachment 6, Section A.2); and 4) to revise the project timeline (Section A.16).

The latest form for National Environmental Assessment Reporting System (NEARS) expires 2022-08-31 and can be found here.
