The Start Printed Page 851committee is a non-discretionary Federal advisory committee established to provide advice and consultation to the Commissioner. The Commissioner of Food and Drugs is charged with the administration of the Radiation Control for Health and Safety Act of 1968. This Act creates the Technical Electronic Product Radiation Safety Standards Committee and requires the Commissioner to consult with the Committee before prescribing standards for radiation emissions from electronic products. This Committee provides advice and consultation to the Commissioner of Food and Drugs on the technical feasibility, reasonableness, and practicability of performance standards for electronic products to control the emission of radiation from such products, and may recommend electronic product radiation safety standards to the Commissioner for consideration.
The Committee shall consist of a core of 15 voting members including the Chair. Members and the Chair are selected by the Commissioner or designee from among authorities knowledgeable in the fields of science or engineering applicable to electronic product radiation safety. Members will be invited to serve for overlapping terms of up to 4 years. Terms of more than two years are contingent upon the renewal of the Committee by appropriate action prior to its expiration. The core of voting members will include five members selected from governmental agencies, including State and Federal Governments, five members from the affected industries, and five members from the general public, of which at least one shall be a representative of organized labor. A quorum shall consist of 10 members, of which at least 3 shall be from the general public, 3 from the government agencies, and 3 from the affected industries.
