Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 147 / Tuesday, August 2, 2005 / Notices delegated to the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS), on a variety of policy and technical functions required to implement and effectively manage the new compensation program. Key functions of the Board include providing advice on the development of probability of causation guidelines which have been promulgated by HHS as a final rule, advice on methods of dose reconstruction which have also been promulgated by HHS as a final rule, advice on the scientific validity and quality of dose estimation and reconstruction efforts being performed for purposes of the compensation program, and advice on petitions to add classes of workers to the Special Exposure Cohort (SEC). In December 2000, the President delegated responsibility for funding, staffing, and operating the Board to HHS, which subsequently delegated this authority to the CDC. NIOSH implements this responsibility for CDC. The charter was issued on August 3, 2001, and renewed on August 3, 2003. Purpose: This board is charged with (a) providing advice to the Secretary, HHS on the development of guidelines under Executive Order 13179; (b) providing advice to the Secretary, HHS on the scientific validity and quality of dose reconstruction efforts performed for this Program; and (c) upon request by the Secretary, HHS, advise the Secretary on whether there is a class of employees at any Department of Energy facility who were exposed to radiation but for whom it is not feasible to estimate their radiation dose, and on whether there is reasonable likelihood that such radiation doses may have endangered the health of members of this class. Matters To Be Discussed: Agenda for this workgroup meeting will focus on the Mallinckrodt Site Profile, particularly presentations by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health on the progress of specific tasks identified by the ABRWH. These tasks include the handling of raffinate exposures; handling of radon exposure; application of correction factors for external doses to organs; assessment of intermittent incident exposures; specification of dose reconstruction methodology for unmonitored workers; and examples of dose reconstruction for representative cases. Also included on the agenda will be a discussion of issues and an identification of next steps. The agenda is subject to change as priorities dictate. In the event a member of the working group cannot attend, written comments may be submitted. Any written comments received will be provided at the meeting and should be submitted to the contact person below well in advance of the meeting. Dr. Lewis V. Wade, Executive Secretary, NIOSH, CDC, 4676 Columbia Parkway, Cincinnati, Ohio 45226, telephone 513– 533–6825, fax 513–533–6826. Due to programmatic issues that had to be resolved, the Federal Register notice is being published less than fifteen days before the date of the meeting.
