On April 8, 2002, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) announced in the Federal Register (67 FR 16728) a public meeting to gather information and data relating to the World Trade Center disaster for building and fire safety purposes. The meeting was scheduled for April 22, 2002, from 8 aa.m. to 4 p.m. at the New York Marriott Hotel, Financial Center, in New York, NY.
The meeting will be rescheduled after two critical documents are available to potential presenters at the meeting: (1) The upcoming report on the Building Performance Assessment Team (BPAT) study of the disaster conducted by the coalition led by the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) and sponsored by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA); and (2) the proposed NIST investigation approach, which will be based in part on the BPAT report. The NIST plan will be made available after the BPAT report is released.
The postponement will allow the public a greater opportunity to provide informed comment on the scope of NIST's plan, which will help guide the planned NIST investigation.
Submissions already received by NIST will be given full consideration when the meeting is rescheduled; those submissions may be amended to reflect the additional information that will be made available to the public.Start Signature
