This gives notice under the Federal Advisory Committee Act (Pub. L. 92-463) of October 6, 1972, that the statutory requirements of the Advisory Committee for Injury Prevention and Control (ACIPC) have been transferred to the Board of Scientific Counselors, National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (BSC, NCIPC).
The ACIPC was established on October 18, 1988, in accordance with Public Law 92-463, as amended (5 U.S.C. App. 2). Section 394(a) of the Public Health Service Act, (42 U.S.C. 280b-2(a)), as amended, directed the Secretary, Department of Health and Human Services, acting through the Director, CDC, to establish an advisory committee to provide advice with respect to the prevention and control of injuries. On October 28, 1994, ACIPC was reestablished under statute.
The responsibilities of ACIPC have been assumed by the BSC, NCIPC. By assuming the statutorily mandated responsibilities of ACIPC, the BSC, NCIPC will thereby become a statutorily mandated committee, continuing to serve the purposes set forth by Section 394(a) of the Public Health Service Act.
