Committee members serve on a voluntary basis; however, travel reimbursement and per diem reimbursement are available. Regarding Nominees Who Are Selected All SGE and Federal government employee nominees who are selected must complete the Office of Government Ethics (OGE) 450 Confidential Financial Disclosure Report before rendering any advice or prior to their first meeting.

The Executive Order can be found PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 online at http://www.whitehouse.gov/ the-press-office/executive-ordernational-export-initiative. The Executive Order instructs the Export Promotion Cabinet, through the TPCC, to provide a report to the President within 180 days on a comprehensive plan to carry out the goals of the NEI. • The TPCC, established by the Export Enhancement Act of 1992 (Pub. L. 102–429), is an interagency committee that coordinates the development of U.S. Government trade promotion policies and programs. The TPCC is composed of representatives from 20 Federal agencies.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    The NACMCF was established in March 1988, in response to a 
recommendation in a 1985 report of the National Academy of Sciences 
Committee on Food Protection, Subcommittee on Microbiological Criteria, 
``An Evaluation of the Role of Microbiological Criteria for Foods.'' 
The current charter for the NACMCF and other information about the 
Committee are available for viewing on the NACMCF homepage at http://frwebgate.access.gpo.gov/cgi-bin/leaving.cgi?from=leavingFR.html&log=linklog&to=http://www.fsis.usda.gov/About_FSIS/NACMCF/index.asp.
    The Committee provides scientific advice and recommendations to the 
Secretary of Agriculture and the Secretary of Health and Human Services 
concerning the development of microbiological criteria by which the 
safety and wholesomeness of food can be assessed. For example, the 
Committee assists in the development of criteria for microorganisms 
that indicate whether food has been processed using good manufacturing 
practices.
    Appointments to the Committee will be made by the Secretary of 
Agriculture after consultation with the Secretary of Health and Human 
Services to ensure that recommendations made by the Committee take into 
account the needs of the diverse groups served by the Department.
    Membership shall include, to the extent practicable, individuals 
with demonstrated ability to represent minorities, women, and persons 
with disabilities.
    Given the complexity of issues, the full Committee expects to meet 
at least once yearly, and the meetings will be announced in the Federal 
Register. The subcommittees will meet as deemed necessary by the 
chairperson and will be held as working group meetings in an open 
public forum. Intermittently, subcommittees may also meet through 
computer-based conferencing (net meetings). Subcommittees may invite 
technical experts to present information for consideration by the 
subcommittee. The subcommittee meetings will not be announced in the 
Federal Register. FSIS will announce the agenda and subcommittee 
working group meetings through the Constituent Update, available on-
line at http://www.fsis.usda.gov/news_&_events/Constituent_Update/index.asp.
    NACMCF holds subcommittee working group meetings in order to 
accomplish the work of NACMCF; all work accomplished by the 
subcommittees is reviewed and approved by the full Committee during a 
public meeting of the full Committee, as announced in the Federal 
Register. All data and records available to the full Committee are 
expected to be available to the public at the time the full Committee 
reviews and approves the work of the subcommittee.
    Appointment to the Advisory Committee is for a two-year term, 
renewable for up to two consecutive terms. Members are expected to 
attend all meetings in person, as this is necessary for the functioning 
of this advisory committee. However, the Advisory Committee realizes 
that unexpected events or extenuating circumstances (e.g., a personal 
or family emergency) may result in a member's inability to attend a 
meeting in-person and that attendance through teleconferencing may be 
necessary. Because attendance through teleconferencing has been a less 
than optimal means to contribute to the work of the committee, members 
should make efforts to attend all meetings to the extent that this is 
possible.
    Members must be prepared to work outside of scheduled Committee and 
subcommittee meetings and may be required to assist in document 
preparation. Committee members serve on a voluntary basis; however, 
travel reimbursement and per diem reimbursement are available.

Regarding Nominees Who Are Selected

    All SGE and Federal government employee nominees who are selected 
must complete the Office of Government Ethics (OGE) 450 Confidential 
Financial Disclosure Report before rendering any advice or prior to 
their first meeting. All members will be reviewed for conflict of 
interest pursuant to 18 U.S.C. 208 in relation to specific NACMCF work 
charges. Financial disclosure updates will be required annually. 
Members must report any changes in financial holdings requiring 
additional disclosure. OGE 450 forms are available on-line at: http://www.usoge.gov/forms/form_450.aspx.

Additional Public Notification

    Public awareness of all segments of rulemaking and policy 
development is important. Consequently, in an effort to ensure that 
minorities, women, and persons with disabilities are aware of this 
notice, FSIS will announce it online through the FSIS Web page located 
at http://www.fsis.usda.gov/regulations_&_policies/2010_Notices_Index/index.asp.
