The Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board (CSB) will convene a public meeting on June 18, 2015, starting at 9:30 a.m. at the CSB's headquarters, located at 2175 K St. NW., 4th Floor Conference Room, Washington, DC 20037. The meeting will focus on the Proposed Rule to amend 40 CFR 1600—Organization and Functions of the Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board. This proposed rule (80 FR 27276 (May 13, 2015)), which was considered and approved during the CSB's May 6, 2015, public meeting, adds a requirement to the CSB's internal administrative rules for the Chairperson to add notation votes that have been calendared for public discussion to the agenda of a public meeting within 90 days of the calendared notation vote. The proposed rule also adds a requirement for the Chairperson, or in the absence of a Chairperson, a member designated by the Board, to schedule a minimum of four public meetings per year in Washington, DC. The CSB is accepting comments on the proposed rule until June 12, 2015. The agenda may also include Board discussion and vote(s) on motions related to Board governance when there is a vacancy in the Chairperson position.
