SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    Background: The Advisory Board 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 new compensation 
program. Key functions of the Advisory Board 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, 
renewed at appropriate intervals, rechartered on February 12, 2018, 
pursuant to Executive Order 13708, and will terminate on September 30,

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. SPR 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
