SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Secretary has renewed the NACOSH charter for two years until October 7, 2016.

NACOSH was established by Section 7(a) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (OSH Act) (29 U.S.C. 651, 656) to advise, consult with and make recommendations to the Secretary and the Secretary of Health and Human Services on matters relating to the administration of the OSH Act. NACOSH is a continuing advisory committee of indefinite duration.

NACOSH operates in accordance with the Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA) (5 U.S.C. App. 2), its implementing regulations (41 CFR part 102-3), and OSHA's regulations on NACOSH (29 CFR part 1912a). Pursuant to FACA (5 U.S.C. App. 2, § 14(b)(2)), the NACOSH charter must be renewed every two years.

The new charter establishes uniform term expiration dates for NACOSH members, with all terms expiring at the end of a given calendar year. In addition, the charter decreases the costs and staff years (1.5 years down from 2 years) for operating NACOSH.

The new NACOSH charter is available to read or download at http://www.regulations.gov (Docket No. OSHA-2014-0001), the federal eRulemaking portal. The charter also is available on the NACOSH page on OSHA's Web page at http://www.osha.gov and at the OSHA Docket Office, N-2625, U.S. Department of Labor, 200 Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20210; telephone (202) 693-2350.
