NACEPT is a federal advisory committee under the Federal Advisory Committee Act, PL 92463. NACEPT provides advice and recommendations to the Administrator and other EPA officials on a broad range of domestic and international environmental policy issues. NACEPT consists of a representative cross-section of EPA's partners and principal constituents who provide advice and recommendations on policy issues and serve as a sounding board for new strategies that the Agency is developing.
In follow-up to completion of work by EPA's Common Sense Initiative (CSI) Council, the Administrator asked NACEPT to create a Standing Committee on Sectors. This Committee began its work in March 1999 and provides a multi-stakeholder forum through which the Agency can continue to receive advice and recommendations on sector-based approaches to environmental protection. (A sector is generally defined a discrete production system of the economy, e.g., petroleum refining, printing, metal finishing.) Further information on sectors is available electronically on our web site at http.//www.epa.gov/sectors.
