    Background: The ABRWH was established under the Energy Employees 
Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act of 2000 to advise the 
President on a variety of policy and technical functions required to 
implement and effectively manage the compensation program. Key 
functions of the ABRWH include providing advice on the development of 
probability of causation guidelines that have been promulgated by the 
Department of Health and Human Services (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 Advisory Board to HHS, which 
subsequently delegated this authority to CDC. NIOSH implements this 
responsibility for CDC. The charter was issued on August 3, 2001,

validity and quality of dose reconstruction efforts performed for this 
program; and (c) upon request by the Secretary, HHS, providing advice 
to 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 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 (Oak 
Ridge Associated Universities--ORAU).

technical documents: ORAU Team Technical Information Bulletin (OTIB) 
0034 (``Internal Dose Coworker Data for X-10''), OTIB 0054 (``Fission 
and Activation Product Assignment for Internal Dose-Related Gross Beta 
and Gross Gamma Analyses''), OTIB 0083 (``Dissolution Models for 
Insoluble Plutonium 238''), Program Evaluation Report (PER) 011 (``K-25
