○ Brief abstract: This form is to be used by operational law enforcement employees who are restricted from full performance of their duties for longer than 80 consecutive hours due to injury or illness; or by prospective operational employees who are impacted by medical issues prior to completing the Training Academy. The primary use of this information will be to determine the nature of a medical or physical condition that may affect safe and efficient performance of the work described in the employee's position description.

—(Pregnancy Only)

○ Affected public: Private sector (Physicians)

In accordance with USMS Policy Directive 3.5, after a physician has confirmed the pregnancy, or no later than the completion of the first trimester of pregnancy (the end of the 13th week), the operational employee is responsible for securing a completed Form USM-522P, or equivalent, from her physician. The primary use of this information will be to determine the nature of a medical or physical condition that may affect safe and efficient performance of the work described in the employee's position description.

—USM-600 Physical Requirements of USMS District Security Officers
