Background: The Advisory Board on Radiation and Worker Health 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 PO 00000 Frm 00039 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 64601 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, renewed at appropriate intervals, and will expire on August 3, 2015. Purpose: The ABRWH 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, 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). Matters For Discussion: The agenda for the Subcommittee meeting includes: Discussion of procedures in the following ORAU and DCAS technical documents: Procedures for reconstructing dose associated with potential skin contamination, External Dose Reconstruction Implementation Guide (IG 001), 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 0082 (‘‘Dose Reconstruction Method for Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia’’), OTIB 0083 (‘‘Dissolution Models for Insoluble Plutonium 238’’), Program Evaluation Report (PER) 011 (‘‘K–25 [Technical Basis Document] TBD and TIB Revisions’’), PER 018 (‘‘Los Alamos National Laboratory TBD Revision, Rev. 00,’’), PER 031 (‘‘Y–12 TBD Revisions’’), PER 038 (‘‘Hooker Electrochemical TBD Revisions’’), PER 042 (‘‘Linde Ceramic Plant TBD Revision’’), PER 043 (‘‘Internal and External Dosimetry E:\FR\FM\30OCN1.SGM 30OCN1
