and on whether there is a reasonable likelihood that such radiation 
doses may have endangered the health of members of this class. The 
Subcommittee on Procedures Review was established to aid the ABRWH 
in carrying out its duty to advise the Secretary, HHS, on dose 
reconstructions. The Subcommittee on Procedures Review is 
responsible for overseeing, tracking, and participating in the 
reviews of all procedures used in the dose reconstruction process by 
the NIOSH Division of Compensation Analysis and Support (DCAS) and 
its dose reconstruction contractor.
    Matters to be Discussed: The agenda for the Subcommittee meeting 
includes discussion of the following ORAU and DCAS procedures: OCAS 
TIB-0009 (``Estimation of Ingestion Intakes''), DCAS TIB-0013 
(``Selected Geometric Exposure Scenario Considerations for External 
Dose Reconstruction at Uranium Facilities''), DCAS OTIB-0010 (``Best 
Estimate External Dose Reconstruction for Glovebox Workers''), DCAS 
IG-001 (``External Dose Reconstruction Implementation Guidelines''), 
DCAS IG-003 (``Radiation Exposures Covered for Dose Reconstructions 
under Part B of the Energy Employees Occupational Illness 
Compensation Program Act''), DCAS IG-005 (``Use of Classified 
Information''), Program Evaluation Report 014 (``Construction Trades 
Workers''), Program Evaluation Report 017 (``Evaluation of 
Incomplete Internal Dose Records from Idaho, Argonne-East and
