SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

SACHRP was established in October 2002. The Committee was established to enhance and expand the focus of the former National Human Research Protections Advisory Committee (NHRPAC), which was terminated in August 2002. SACHRP provides expert advice and recommendations to the Secretary, through the Assistant Secretary for Health, on the conduct of research involving human subjects with particular emphasis on special populations, such as neonates and children, prisoners, and the decisionally impaired; pregnant women, embryos, and fetuses; individuals and populations in international studies; populations in which there are individually identifiable samples, data, or information; and investigator conflicts of interest.

Since SACHRP was established, renewal of the Committee charter has been carried out at the appropriate intervals as stipulated by FACA. The previous Committee charter was scheduled to expire on October 1, 2010. On October 1, 2010, the Secretary of Start Printed Page 71444Health and Human Services approved for the Committee charter to be renewed. The new charter was effected and filed with the appropriate Congressional offices and Library of Congress on October 1, 2010. Renewal of the SACHRP charter provides authorization for the Committee to operate until October 1, 2012.

A copy of the Committee charter is available on the SACHRP Web site at http://www.hhs.gov/​ohrp/​sachrp/​charter.htm.
